It’s 3am and I just finished making cards to sell at my girlfriend Rose‘s jewelry show, going on at her house today at 1pm. She invited me to do this when she first started planning weeks ago.

The kitchen was warm sometimes. The torches and the candles did little to keep the gloom at bay and nothing in the […]
I’ve been working on a new series of faerie sketches for a children’s book. Some are more finished than others. Most of them are in a little 5×7 sketchbook that my wife gave me as a gift, so the sketches are kind of small. These newer ones are being done with water soluble graphite, watercolor […]
In the beginning was the word and the word was OM. Chanting OM is like a tuning fork for your soul. The ancient sacred sound permeates the Cosmos; creating it and sustaining it. In the 1950s Bell industries aka the phone company was experiencing static on their lines. They assigned 2 physicists to find the […]
