Welcome

~ I'm often asked how I do my carvings, so I've done an essay "Carving Skulls and Stuff" in the Information folder of my gallery: donsimpson.deviantart.com/art/…

~ Items here that have not yet sold are in the Unsold Items folder of my gallery. donsimpson.deviantart.com/gall… If you want to buy one, or commission a custom piece, send me a note.

Visitors

~~~ FogCon being a tiny literary (Science Fiction & Fantasy) convention, I don't sell a lot there, but enough to make it worthwhile, and it's fun. The “gadget petting zoo” was held again, and I got a literary pendant from a favorite jeweler, Laurie Toby Edison**; a representation of one of the mechanical prosthetic hands from the novel Everfair, by Nisi Shawl, and I had some excellent conversations.
~~~ Shortly after that, and after the very small, very worthwhile, open house and sale at the San Francisco Gem & Mineral Society (I'm a member, but I was buying materials, not selling my art), I went to ConSonance, a tiny song and music (Science Fiction & Fantasy) convention where I don't sell anything, but get to listen to much that I like. Sadly, many of my musical friends were not there, and some of these I shall not see again. I did have a wonderful talk with a maker of historical playing cards based on much research***.
~~~ So my busy winter season is over, and I can start getting ready for the next one. :)

Artist
United States
~~~ For several decades I made my living as a research and development technician (mostly electronic and mechanical, some computer gaming) while doing artwork when I could; now I get to be an artist. The art I used to do was mostly drawings and paintings done with India ink and colored inks, or strange creatures and machines made from various plastic materials. These days I mainly carve, what I mainly carve is jewelry, and what I mainly carve things from are natural materials of all sorts. I still do digital art, though, both vector and pixil based, including fonts for computer printing. What next? I'm mostly working on improving my carving, but I want to make some art using the machine tool and computer knowledge from my old "day job".

~~~ I do take commissions, and occasionally trade art. If you are interested, send me a note.

Current Residence: The Far West (or The Left Coast, some say)
Favourite genre of music: Filk (a tradition of the science-fiction community)
Operating System: Various, mostly Apple
Favourite cartoon character: Hobbes (as in Calvin and Hobbes)
Personal Quote: Be excellent to each other. And... Party on, dudes! (... Bill & Ted)
