The Job(s)

Some people have big jobs, I really just have a bunch of little jobs that combine into one big job.  I've been working on a short film called "Ogre & The Mermaid".  You can find out more about it here:

I've also recently picked up an instructing position with Paintnite.  People seem to really enjoy themselves.  For those of you who don't know what it is, well, you grab a friend, family member or date (or yourself), sign up for the event, then go to a bar, eat, drink and paint with direction for a trained professional painter (that would be me).  For more info, here's my profile where you can find out when my next event will be:

We are still remodeling the kitchen, and yes, I am building all of the cabinets with our bounty of powertools hidden in the basement (pics to follow soon).

I now have something stuck between my teeth and need to go in search of a toothpick.  Thanks for reading.

Takin' Care of Business

For those of you who've been wondering: I'm not dead, I just haven't had much time to blog in a while. While diving into existential-land and pondering the true meaning of blogging, I've run many miles and drank many cups of caffeine.  When I have a revelation about blogging, I'll be sure to send you all an update.

For the time being here are some recent productions.  I hope you enjoy them.

New Book

 For the first time, and from my blog to your eyeballs, I'd like to present to you:


A book for children with eco-conscious parents

This is my first publication.  I created this out of concern I've had for fish that are red-listed (or endangered) because of poor fishing practices or lack of regulations.  To write this book, I enlisted the help of my father to keep my grammar and spelling under control.  Since I moved out of Chicago and away from my entire family, the creation of this book also served as a fun way to help stay connected with them.

The first part of the book are made up of colorful and informational poems and pictures...

like this  >>>
After the poetry and pictures, the back section of the book contains more realistic sketches of each fish and more in-depth information for the parent or older child...

<<<  like this

In the end we had a lot of fun writing this book, and we hope you and your child enjoy reading it together for the benefit and future of that fish on your dish.

(Special thanks to Dr. Mark Sabaj PĂ©rez, Dr. Jason Downs, and Nate Bender for their fact-checking abilities to ensure that all information represented is accurate and relevant).

Spring is here!

Spring Goat - Acrylic - 11x14"
Dear anonymous commenter to this blog,

     To answer your insincere question, the RSS works with Feed Burner.  Feed Burner should work with services called "Readers".  The simpler way to subscribe to my site would be through the "Join This Site" button in the right-hand sidebar.  I suppose it's a bit awkward to have the more difficult method on top of the right-hand sidebar and the easier method below.  Thanks for pointing that out - I will have to re-arrange those.  If you have further trouble with these issues, both Blogger and FeedBurner have help sections.  You may contact them for further information and I'm sure someone on the other end will be more than happy to help you.

I removed your comment because you added a spammy link.

Thanks for reading.
