Itchy Fingers

You know the feeling you get when you’re enthused, inspired, and energized to do something or make something? I call this “itchy fingers”. That’s where I am.  This isn’t an uncommon phenomenon. As a matter of fact, it happens all the time. Usually, it signals the end of a creative dry spell. Not the case […]

My Top 10 Comics…Today

  Whew! This is a long one, but…sorry? Not sorry. There are so many good comic books out there right now. I used to feel a little weird about making recommendations, because I’m not one of those people who’ve been reading comics since I was a kid. About 4-5 years ago I jumped into comics […]

Planet Comicon 2018

Oh my, oh my! I can always count on Planet Comicon in Kansas City to be filled with adventure, and this year was no exception. February 16-18 Bartle Hall filled with geeks of all kinds.

It’s Been A Long Time…

I’ve reached the end of a long road.  Today, I finished all the work for my second Bachelor degree in Graphic Design. Graduation is officially February 2nd, but I picked Planet Comic Con in Kansas City with lots of friends instead of a trip to Florida with one very good friend. (Don’t worry, we have […]

Arrow. While I […]

Best 40 Minutes of Your Week

Every once in a while, I stumble across something wonderful in the course of my classwork.  This time, it was a documentary from Pilgrim Films about a Buddhist monk who started a home for unwanted children.  Tashi and the Monk is filled with the sound of children laughing, playing, learning and healing.  I rejoiced in […]

Have a Holly Jolly…Whatever

The holiday season is here.  Not fast approaching.  Not on its way. Brace yourself, it has arrived.  Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza or Festivus, this time of year becomes a hectic mesh of holiday gatherings with family, friends and co-workers.  For all the frivolity, to be honest, it stresses me out.  All the cooking, […]

Its All In the Details…

The Exposition The week after a holiday at a bank is always a little rough. When you toss in a significant reduction in staff due to…life and things, and the maelstrom of chaos that ensues is enough cause a wee bit of gray matter to leak from the ears. You know your brain is mush […]

How Do You Process Your Thoughts?

I tend to process complicated things out loud.  Whether those are emotions, concepts, plans, whatever, I need to talk it out.  Responses are generally not necessary because what pours out of my mouth is a confusions of ideas, speech, and thought.  Once I sift through the rubble, I have a cohesive…something. In this respect, I […]
