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.

A Pandemic Gallery

To get to the trail where I walk a few days per week I have to drive through downtown. Since the shelter in place order, I see a few individuals, an occasional couple, mostly walking their dogs. Certainly no groups of three or more anymore. We’ve become, at least temporarily, a society of individuals. And even though in the end that is our true endemic state—we are after all

So… bat + man = Batman = hero = hero myth = Joseph Campbell = follow your passion = be the hero in your own narrative. And that’s the way that particular rabbit hole happened.

Americana :: Waiting for the Parade

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S. and a good day to reflect on the sacrifices and service of men and women down through the decades who put themselves in harm’s way. I purposely avoid politics on Foolish Fire but occasionally I’m struck by images that may be construed that way, although what I like about this particular image is not only its equal measure of amusing and poignant
