Fake’s Not Real

April 9th, 2022 As disclaimers go, this is a weird one: representation matters. I believe that to my core. I want to make that clear before I start. So what kind of something am I starting? I guess we’ll see. When we’re kids, we are generally taught the difference between real and fake. The newsContinue reading “Fake’s Not Real”

Look Who I Ran Into!

March 14th, 2022 I just ran into my buddy, Bay, and he says hi! He’s wondering, too, if you have any chips. He also can’t believe we’ve already raised 54% of Fire & Ice — almost $1,100 — to tell his story. He actually got teary-eyed as I told him how excited people are toContinue reading “Look Who I Ran Into!”

i made this for your fridge

March 10th, 2022 I’m a firm believer that when I have feelings while I’m creating something that it will hold those feelings and then give them to the person who experiences the art.

The Outsiders

March 7th, 2022 People who belong uphold the status quo, both because it benefits them and because they can’t imagine any other way; the outsiders are the ones who push us ever forward. I often find the universe giving me simultaneous, overlapping examples of something I need to learn or remember, because I am aContinue reading “The Outsiders”

An Ode to the Rescue Rangers

February 16th, 2022 An Ode to the Rescue Rangers If you’re following along, you may have seen me lose my mind over the new Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers trailer yesterday. In fact, I have been abnormally salivating since the project was first announced. The original series was one of my absolute favorites growing up.Continue reading “An Ode to the Rescue Rangers”

Shaking When Stirred

December 12th, 2021 I worked a lot this weekend. (If you popped into the restaurant at any time, virtually open to close, on Saturday or Sunday, I was there to delight/annoy you.) This little girl missed me. A lot. She always greets me at the door, but tonight was different. She missed me so muchContinue reading “Shaking When Stirred”
