Some artists I’ve seen lately

April 7, 2018


Just a post about all of the art we’ve been looking at lately. This is a bit behind schedule, but who cares? Good art is good art. Akihide Tamura, b.1947, still active. I’m obviously a fan – square format, black and white, landscapes. There isn’t much about him on Wikipedia, unfortunately, just that he graduated from […]

Goober Maroo is available for purchase on!

March 23, 2018


Hello readers:) You may remember that I posted about finally finishing a children’s book I’d been working on for quite some time. My friend was in love with it and wanted to sell it publicly. So after a few runs through the print process and some edits to the original, the book is now available […]

People are the WORST, part 3/3

March 3, 2018


I want to end my rant with a bit of history: I want to talk about the Hibakusha and what happened to them after they survived the absolute horror of nuclear bombings by the USA in WW2. Obviously, I’m not Japanese and I wasn’t there. I’m just an immigrant who gets to talk to a […]

I saw work from WOLS at a recent show

I Illustrated a Children’s Book

January 9, 2018


I just posted about my goals, and this was a goal of mine for 2017. I accomplished it. It took me 9 months to actually do it, although it took me closer to 8 years to get around to it. My dear friend Kristi sent me the story when I moved to Germany, and I […]

How I made a Sebastian the Crab costume for a child

November 2, 2017


I’m recording this for myself, and for others who need to make BASIC costumes for children or photo shoots. We planned a Disney theme for Halloween this year with the girls. I knew a few would be joining us, and wanted everyone to have options to choose from. A group of little girls, I figured […]
