Hey there, long time, no blog.
It’s 2014, and everything is totally different. Right? Right. I have been working on some secret writing, which takes away from my blog time. But in the process of writing, I stumbled across my old freelance site and realized I could host it with google drive, so the above link should take you there. I got out of active freelancing a while back but I still often will take jobs as they appear.
Not a whole lot of other news to report at the moment. I got a couple sketchpads and a basic charcoal set so I might try to get into that soon if I can. Lots of great art gifts arrived for Christmas, to get me through the winter entertained.
I will try not to neglect this blog… I did renew my domain, so that’s something, right? A declaration of intent. In the meantime, you can check out some of those sidebar links if you’re bored… there is no shortage of great art in the world for anybody who’s online.
Calvin & Hobbes perfectly sums up the creative process.
Here’s a Poe project from the Re-Animator team which I think everybody should help make happen. I’ve also read that the Poe museum (or house, I forget the name) is having trouble funding operations… shouldn’t they just make the local football team (Ravens) pay for a little real culture? Ah well…
via my friend Bri, here’s a pretty amazing piece on the work of photog Nick Brandt.

War in a heartbeat
I declare war on so-called civilization
World trade globalization
War on ambassadors of pretense
War on MTV and CNN
MacDonald’s, Walt Disney, and Bethlehem
On Christina, Britney, and Eminem
I declare war on the world of anti-choice
On violent unilaterality
On the amassment of murderous high-tech toys
And all crimes against humanity
War on the moral majority
On corporate dot com imperialism
On mindlessly bumbling stupidity
And police-state terrorism
World War Three
Be all that you can be
