“New Phone – Who dis?” or “That’s a Big Mall!”

Ok… I don’t do tech much. I mean, sure, I like computers… I built one as a right of passage. Sure I’ve tinkered with Raspberry pi single boards and I’ve played with Linux from time to time but I would not say I’m a technophile. I don’t really get super excited by gadgets that we…

The war is…. Over?

The middle east has always been rife with conflict. Religious ideological differences, land disputes, and more have turned the region into a hotbed of aggression. Couple this with American interference in the name of peace or retribution and you get what we have now… a shit show. In September 2001, a terrorist attack perpetrated by…

The Art of Double Entendre – Fudge in Uranus

There is a small town in Missouri on Route 66 called Uranus. This, in and of its self, is not amusing but if you factor in townsfolk who embrace the “your anus” jokes, you get the Uranus Fudge Factory.

Line and Wash Winter – An art challenge

In 2009 Jake Parker, an illustrator and teacher in Utah, decided he wanted to challenge himself with 31 days of ink drawings to improve his inking and generate some positive habits for himself. I’ve participated in Inktober for the last three years and this year, when the 31 day challenge was complete, I didn’t feel…
