My Bio
~~~ 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

Personal Quote: Be excellent to each other. And... Party on, dudes! (... Bill & Ted)

Total Eclipse of the Art

Total Eclipse of the Art

~~~ Since it looks like people I send to DeviantArt wind up in the new “eclipse” version of the interface, I have been trying to make it work as well as the old “Classic Green” version, but it looks like that is not possible. The new version has smaller text, useless huge blocks of empty space, less accessible subgallery folders with their labels moved from the top to the bottom, no way to edit the biographical information, other information sections disappeared, a tedious and inefficient new system for arranging gallery items..... the damage goes on and on. It's sickening, but still better than coding it all myself, and I imagine that they will fix some of the bugs eventually. ~~~ The recent change of the DeviantArt logo from “da” to “Z” was bewildering, but didn't actually break things.

November has been a busy month; I have got a lot of studio organizing done, but there is much more to do. I have a lot of pictures of new and old art to upload when times are more calm. Meanwhile, I wish you joy before, during, and after such of the many holidays of the next several weeks as you celebrate. :)

A Night in the Lonesome October

A Night in the Lonesome October

~~~ The other night, as I was out walking, I got a phone call from a friend, letting me know that one of my songs, Ship of Stone*, had won this year's Pegasus Award for Best Classic Filk** Song. ~~~ Hard, dry winds had been shaking the trees so strongly that many had lost branches, and drifts of fallen autumn leaves were scuttling about; the hills were dark due to an emergency power shutdown, and the air was faintly smokey from wildfires near and far. It was very late; only occasional cars passed, and a few cyclists and skateboarders. In the darkness of one front yard, a deer that had snuck down from the hills was grazing, watching me waril
