A New Drawing

April 22, 2012

I’ve been trying to raise the quality bar of my illustrations lately. No, this image is not unique, it’s from the cover of a Supergirl comic I saw in a store today. However, I did pencil and ink this myself.

Words Have Power

April 20, 2011

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity’ but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

Superman Classic

February 9, 2011

Robb Pratt gave us Superman fans a new little work of art to geek out over: The character design is a departure from anything I’ve ever seen before on this subject material – it has an appeal that’s hard to define, but is immediately engaging.  The biggest problem is that it’s over all too quickly […]

Chicken Steadicam

But Only If You’re A Chicken.   This video has been around for a while, but there may be something to learn from chickens yet.

Those of you who have read and enjoyed speculative fiction all their lives, take note of this newest development.  The J. Craig Venter institute has created the first synthetic self-replicating species whose parent is a computer.  It carries the names of its creators and its own web site encoded directly into its DNA. It is […]

Getting Photofly Off the Ground

September 20, 2010

I was very excited to see Photofly from Autodesk – this looked like a fantastic way to quickly model objects and buildings using nothing but photographs and the click of a mouse (and time waiting for some computing to be done on some server someplace to figure it all out and stitch it all together). […]

That Whole ‘Stop and Smell the Roses’ Thing

September 18, 2010

I think I’m finally beginning to understand it. When your life is a blur of work and driving to and from work and being so tired from work that you don’t even have the energy to sit up and watch television when you get home – when things you thought were being handled for you […]
