The Eagle has landed

A preview of a book that will be published later this year on a Golden Eagle named Amazon. Illustrations were all done on my new iPad Pro using Procreate, a $10.00 app I can only describe as life altering. These pieces will appear on the inside of the book which are being printed in grayscale.

What’s the Big Idea?

There are those right now who are asking us to be bigger people. Us as a country, as a society, to be bigger. To expand, to embrace a bit of discomfort, to open up, breathe deep until it hurts, stand up taller until we feel our spines unfurl, look around longer and harder.

The average Republican believes that nearly 40 percent of Democrats are LGBTQ. The …

Garbage Cans and Chamomile

I don’t have a smart speaker. My TV is not stupid, but it’s old enough that it can’t listen to me. I’ve turned off all the things on all my devices for maximum privacy protection. I’ve turned on all the things on my devices for maximum privacy protection. My car is a 2007, so Russian hackers can’t apply my brakes from their phones just for fun. But I do …
