I take macro photos of every... continue reading

Getting Hit by a Block…

The world is our muse.Cameras, illustration programs, graphics tablets and styli serve as our brushes with which we paint what we see or how we feel.Messages of encouragement are painted artfully with broad vibrant strokes; warnings are masterfully created with precision and contrast, feelings of loss or sorrow –wailed by a siren in darkened and subdued shades.No matter the outcome, the process of creating something from nothing is exhilarating.Intoxicating.Then, sometimes… inexplicably... continue reading

You will probably end up with a lot of crap, but... continue reading
