Late August 2019 we went to Cape Disappointment in Washington, just south of LongBeach. It was the kite festival, we hung out with friends we don’t get to see often enough, and made some new friends.
We had an epic two-week journey to North Carolina and New York this summer. Here are some pics of The Outer Banks. New York pics are below.. Corolla, North Carolina Syracuse and Woodstock, NY

J and I went to Sou’wester Lodge for Spring break. We spend a fair amount of time at Cape Disappointment. Waikiki beach in Cape Disappointment may be my new favorite place. We made new friends, got in fights with old friends (that part sucked), got rained on, sunned on, and sanded on. The dog only […]

This here is a post about my residency at the Sou’Wester in Seaview Washington in January 2019. I just spend two and a half years busting my ass with VergePDX. I was curating art at the Red Fox, Akemi Salon, Flickerbox, Inc., and both of the Joinery locations in SE and SW Portland, Oregon. It […]
In my PSU class I’ve got several students who want to use licensed fonts. They are students, so purchasing licenses just isn’t an option. So I’ve found some handy resources for finding close replacements for fonts as well as some handy links for font pairing recommendations. Futura recommended web font replacements The website: What is […]
I was looking for image inspiration and ran across this blog post about 1970’s native american ledger art. Beautiful drawings.
Jason Berlin and I, along with loads more artists were interviewed for the 2017 Big 500 Aty Show. Going on until December 24th at Pioneer Place Mall, Second floor. Three shops, thousands of pieces of art, all $40 each.
Great project! Over 55 artists from the Pacific Northwest. Put together by Jereme Westom who was in my grad program. There are still early bird specials on the book for $15.
https://www.masterworksfineart.com/blog/frank-stella-and-moby-dick-a-whale-of-an-imagination/ Stella explained “I think the Moby Dick series [1986-1997] is a kind of turning point. I was a little afraid, and probably still am a little, with Moby Dick, but the pictures [are] essentially curved surfaces. They started to really move, and the novel moves; you’re going around the world, it’s pretty wet, there […]
I’m having too much fun with Scratch. I just started this dinosaur chomping apple game. Need to add some dangerous objects to avoid and maybe a winning score. For now, time for bed.
Back in November I’d done some research on kids coding apps. I made a scratch account but wound up playing more with Scratch Jr. on the iPad with my daughter.. I’ve been spending more time with it and I’m having a blast just goofing off. Here’s my sweet dance moves:
If I’ve learned anything from software development, it’s that the only way to make sure something is really strong is to spend a whole bunch of time finding out where it breaks and make it stop breaking. This is a sentiment I understand pretty deeply on a personal level. I like to see how far I can […]
What a wild ride it’s been. I left my job at PNCA at the end of June 2016. I had a glorious summer with my daughter — the first one we’d had together since I started grad school in 2013. I also biked a bunch and enjoyed the sunshine. Starting in the fall I went […]
