I Illustrated a Children’s Book

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 […]

the Thousand Cranes are finished.

November 1, 2015

They’ve actually been finished since December 8, 2013. It only took 2 years since completion to get them hung! Since completing the project, I’ve had to talk about it a lot with my students, because we often talk about it in lessons. I started the project just to see if I could do it, honestly, but […]

New Photos Added to the Etsy Shop!

I was sending in my second (and hopefully final) submission to a stock photography website and found a few more images that had been massively favorited on the Flickr site. I decided it wouldn’t hurt to add them to my Etsy shop and offer them as prints, since they seem to be so popular with […]

One of my very good friends signed my high school yearbook with the note ‘follow your dreams, keep making art and sell your painting for $16,000’. While I will probably never sell a painting as that would require owning paint or paintbrushes, I have made it to the ‘selling your art’ part of the message, […]

The Mamiya only needed a new part, and now I have two Mamiyas and three parts!

I went on a bender after that last post about the Mamiya and its broken glass, and after all of my researching I realized that all I needed was a new focus screen. I was already in the process of buying the second camera, though, so I bit it and bought the camera anyway. It […]

“Well, I didn’t make it for you!”, or: what you should know about artists when it comes to criticism. Specifically, me.

I’ve been writing this post since November. November. I started it in response to something that happened on Facebook, and I decided that I needed to get over that incident and really be ok with it before I started to write about the event objectively. I might not even be there yet, but I think […]
