  • the latest projects

    For those of you who’ve been wondering: I’m not dead, between projects and other things, I just haven’t had much time to blog. While diving into existential-land and pondering the true meaning of blogging, I’ve run many miles and drank many cups of caffeine.  When I have a revelation about blogging, I’ll be sure to…

  • Those Funny-Bunny Comments

    Acrylic on Canvas – 8″ x 6″ I finally figured out how to incorporate a 3rd party comment section within my blog, and it only took me about 4 hours.  I calculate around 5 minutes to install a comment enabler called “Disqus”, however, it didn’t work quite right.  It took me the other 3 hours and…

  • Fantasy Island

    Last weekend, the time that I wasn’t playing video games was spent creating this much-needed kitchen Island.  That ugly white structure underneath is our dishwasher. Back in the day, when the island was nothing more than a simple dream, the only counter space we had (with which to gut and chop our food upon) was…

  • Public Display

      What you are looking at is the corner of a painting in its unfinished stage as it sits on a well-used easel. This painting (in its finished form) will soon be on public display for the next two months.  If all goes well, I’ll be hanging them tomorrow at a place called “Earth Bread…

  • Hippo On A Bicycle

    Block print with water-based ink on heavy paper ~ 5″ x 5″ Yet another hippo on a bicycle.  At the moment, I’m trying to figure out the new Blogspot framework for creating an entry.  They seem to have re-arranged the entire format.  I think I like it…oh, no, wait, I really like it!  Especially the…

  • Turning Your Door Into A Work of Mod-Art

    This door had at least several coats of white paint on it before I transformed it into what it is today.  It took me about 8 hours to strip the door of all its paint.  Then another 8 hours or so to complete the painting process.  

  • Normal Foot VS the Abnormal Shoe

    I’ve heard such great things about this shoe. Then, I tried a pair at the store. The rumors are all true. Nike comes in sizes narrow and extra-narrow. My feet are not that narrow, and word on the street dictates that a lot of people won’t buy these shoes for the same reason: TOO NARROW.…
