Gotta Clean This Place the Fuck Up. Seriously.

Brother Ray Will Eventually Assist Me In Cleaning This Place Up

When you post two pictures of your workspace and inadvertently give them very similar titles, it's time to clean up. My hope is that "The Genius of Soul" will get me though the ordeal.

Dante: Birthday #2

Sunday Smiles and Hugs

Two years ago, Dante came into our lives, and he turned everything upside-down.
I wouldn't change a thing.
Happy birthday, you beautiful little guy.

Sketchbook-Based Skeletons

Contents: Four Years of the Worst Sketches Ever ('96-'00)

Sarah and I recently went down to the basement to give Dante another spot to play (other than the living room). That meant removing a lot of junk and finally putting a ton of books away, which also brought our bookshelves 80% closer to their former glory. The photo above was taken a couple months before that endeavour, but it illustrates that I came across a stack of old sketchbooks. These things are far more embarrassing than baby photos. In particular, I looked at my final student one from 2005 and found a lot of stuff that I found awkward/repulsive.

If anything, it served as a reminder of where I've come from, and how far I have to go. Gotta keep pushing. After all, it's just a place to practice and have fun.
