Happy Halloween!

My son wanted to be Groot, from Guardians of the Galaxy. The available costume on-line looked bad, too be kind. My wife and decided we could make a better costume. Craft foam + glue + plus markers = GROOT!

#InkTober day five

Collaboration with my son, because he is cool and asked if he could participate.  He drew the head, then I the torso, then he wanted to add the arms and legs. When he was done with that he added a bunch of minecraft stuff. #InkTober  

An Education

Like a lot of people I have a formal education. I have a piece of paper that says I studied something in depth. In my case it was studio arts with an emphasis in painting. Even though I had an interest in graphic design and studied it a little I really preferred what I was learning in the studio arts building. Sure I was painting, but I was learning how to push color, composition, content, etc. I was learning creativity. My work was an odd duck, I was doing work that showed I was influenced by design, by comic books, by movie posters, by POP/low culture all that fun stuff that lives around us and makes up our world. I recently had the slides of my college portfolio scanned into a digital format (Yes, my college portfolio is on slides!). Some of the work holds up, some doesn't, but they all take me back to the studio space I shared in NE MPLS.

Messin' Around

I don't do photomanipulation very often. Experimenting is important because every now and then I stumble onto to something that can be added into my workflow.

Let's Make Fun Happen!

Welcome to the new version of my website and blog!

I like to create and I like to create content in any shape or form. The best thing about being versatile is that I can choose the best way to solve any particular problem at hand. So let's start a new path on this journey by making some fun happen!
