More cards for holidays & shits & giggles & birthdays, 2017 edition.
March 26, 2016
Better Call Saul is beautifully shot, and strangely oft-centered.
Coolest Catz on the Block
October 04, 2015
Turns out my new designer coworker-pal Tom deserves Best Catsitter Award of 2015. Look at these amazing daily updates he sent me while I was gallavanting for a week in Lake Tahoe with other members of the Firebelly fam with +1’s: An...
CAKE Bake 2015
September 03, 2015
Doodles from the annual CAKE Bake 2015.
Sketching on the Typetrain
March 05, 2015
Doodles from our 38 hour Amtrak trip to Glacier National Park, a week in an MTV cribs log cabin, and then a 38 hour train trip back. Then a few from Chicago for...

Up the River Rollercoaster
December 14, 2013
I love Chicago. As far as cities go, this gritty gray, snow coated, L-rumbling mash of midwest folks takes the cake. I’m heading into my sixth year here. The city is all dolled up with a fresh coat of snow makeup, bringing back the...
Burning the Midnight Sketchbook
August 27, 2012
I’ve been mostly drawing in my sketchbook for the last 5 months. Here are some sketchbook droppings. The perfect manure! If this was smell-o-vision you’d have wafts of rich, rotting bark and cigar smoke oozing out.
A Leaping Fatty
August 06, 2012
In celebration of Carl passing 17 pounds this week, here he is doing some acrobatics as a kitten: He was leaping after a crumpled up piece of paper we often played catch with. His new thing is playing goalie on the ground when I try to...
Huffing the Kindle
August 04, 2012
I made mention online about reading ~3,000 pages of 7 novels on my Kindle in 2011, knowing that would spark conversation amongst my friends, many of whom are in the Amazon-and/or-ereaders-are-evil camp. I don’t blame them. I’m probably the...
Five Push-ups for Blog
May 18, 2011
Poor Blog. Are you feeling old? Left behind? Still mumbling scathing invectives about Facebook and Twitter between gritted, coffee-and-cigarette-stained teeth? Still threatening to end it all, nobody cares anyway, what’s the point, anything...
Most Powerful Robot Ever
September 17, 2010
Drawn by Aaron Beaty. Detail from our epic doodle battle which is my twitter background.
A Vacuum-driven Vomit-like Account of Various Buasky Events During One Chicago Summer
September 17, 2010
Dear Blog, I’m sorry I hate you so much. Truth is I’ve been caught up in a ménage à trois with that tart Twitter and yeah, Facebook. Man, she gets around, but she’s so easy. And she so quickly catches me up on all the gossip. You...
The Magic Word, in 140pt All Caps
May 07, 2010
The execution and timing on this letter from my niece Hannah is absolutely spot-on. This girl is going to go far.
Weird Uncle Loot
March 30, 2010
It’s fun spoiling kids from a distance. I am a bit jealous, though maybe I’m just sending off what I would want if I were shrunk back to age 11. It’s quite possible my niece Hannah wanted a signed pro soccer ball, a 3-D MegaSmartPhone, a...
cluttered and confusing navigation
November 24, 2009
One of my first clients as a freelance webdesigner recently relaunched their site. This is the homepage from my design, a hand-coded site complete with custom cart and checkout, which survived for almost six years: It was replaced with this...
Eatin’ Lazy: In the Spell of the Dripping Ham Jibarito
November 09, 2009
I’ve gone to the dark side. It’s hopeless. After being somewhat of a health nut, at least food-wise, for some 15 years, I’ve switched over. Yesterday I fought back a nasty hangover with about five pounds of greasy Chinese — not...
Sketches from SPX 2009
October 01, 2009
My France trip is more summed up by my photos and drawings than I could ever blather about with words. Translated: I’m too lazy to relay my experiences with another journal post with more details. I said I would, but just thinking about it bores...
Un Petit Paris Blurb
September 21, 2009
Turns out Paris isn’t the best opportunity for keeping up a journal. For better or worse, I came down with a terrible (and hopefully one-day) bug that I had to spend the entire day sleeping off. I had planned to visit comic book shops with Damien...
September 11, 2009
In my continuing yearly movie review series, I’ve reduced the yawnsville Bourne Ultimatum to two sentences, accompanied by stills which capture the riveting camerawork: “Something happened to me.” “And I need to know what it...
This is Living!
September 09, 2009
I’ve been doing my best to fit into the slow-moving little village of Brantôme the last week. Farmers markets, thrift store shopping, lazy drives in the countryside, sitting by the river drawing medieval steeples, many luxurious meals, and of...
The Great White Honky Visits France
September 04, 2009
For those who somehow land on my blog but don’t hear me blathering in person, I’m spending the next 3 weeks in France. The first 2 weeks with my cousin Kimberlee in Brantôme, and the last week in Paris. I just spent the day walking around...
The N-16 P-32 (Space Age Helicopter)
August 08, 2009
Found this in a recently unearthed box of relics covered with dust and other unmentionables. You can click on the images to make them larger .. if you dare.
It’s My Party and I’ll Drink in the Midday if I Want To
July 15, 2009
Today I turned 34 and I’m celebrating appropriately with La Fin Du Monde at 1pm. Thirty-three was a tumultuous year for me, but a good one nonetheless. From living with my girl and cat in sweltering LA heat with a corporate job and driving...
