Join me on Tuesday, February 6 from 7:00-8:00 at Howell Library (formerly England Run) in Stafford for a presentation on “Arts and the Apocalypse.” I will give an overview on Apocalypse stories and artwork from various cultures, identify common themes, and discuss how we can use Apocalyptic motifs when creating art. On Saturday, March 10 at 10:00, I will be giving a lecture on Self Portrait Photography. Learn tips for how to take artistic selfies, use photo filters, and make quick retouches in Photoshop.
Through the month of May, a collection of my photography, illustrations, ink drawings, and additional fluff/cool prop items will be on display at England Run Library in Stafford, Virginia. Most of the pieces in the show are available for sale. I will also be there to sell and sign small prints and books on May 20th, 1:00-4:00. Check out a preview of the show below:
Disclaimer: I spend a lot of time on the internet. I’ve gotten old enough now I was around for the dawn of some now-vintage memes. If I ever quote you, thinking I’m referencing popular culture, and you feel like I have plagiarized you, please let me know. I always try to give credit where credit is due, but the meme net is wide, and the internet is bad at citing sources. Another disclaimer: a couple days after writing this I was in the ER because I hadn’t slept in four days and was pushing another round of psychosis from sheer anxiety. more »

Computer messages that shouldn’t be annoying any sane person right now– and here I am, having to schedule a restart for 9:15 AM (when I’ll be at work in the morning) so I can keep pecking at my keyboard undisturbed until I finally drag myself to bed when the creatively-exhausted stupor sets in– if I drag myself to bed at all tonight. I love my brain, I love watching this process of expressing ideas and stories unfold, but I do wish it were willing to show some sympathy to MY schedule, which pays the bills. Don’t let anyone tell you more »
