Happy Halloween everyone!

Also…this just in. Friend, fellow blogger and gifted portrait photographer Kim Ayres has just posted his third annual pumpkin carving post. It’s well worth the visit to see his pumpkin carving not to mention his photography.

Here’s something I just happened upon for those animation fans out there. An interview with the legendary Andreas Deja.

I realized I haven’t posted for some time. I wanted to let people know I’m alright despite the necessity of my energy being directed to less than positive things.

Anyway above is a drawing from a moment I was able to get away and do what I love to do.
