Thanks for taking the time to visit my website. I hope you find some content worthy of your interest. The site is comprised of stuff for fun and learning, with a few bits from the contract work I completed while serving two terms of work-at-home-dad.

These days I have a rewarding role developing eLearning Courses for a government agency. I also contnue exploring, experimenting and expanding my skill set while creating new art to keep my Mom and hopefully a few others happy in the process. Please enjoy your visit.

Odds n Ends –

As the title implies, a portal for things not like the others. Stoke your lamp and gather your staff while you venture into this Realm of the Misfit.

…or, hows about a quickie? –

Below are some pieces I recently uploaded. Most often current items, other times it was something I found in folder and thought it enjoyable. But by small measure, a chronological que of my hijinks.

Always Be Testing

Always Be Testing

This is something I put together to replace the glowy window thingy from my Win 10 install. Kind of a retromod of the RCA test pattern that used to adorn my televsion screen before the days of 24 hour broadcasting, while chompin’ down my corn flakes and waiting on the National Anthem to herald the daily dose of Captain Kangaroo.
If you have a 1920×1080 desktop and would like a copy, please feel free to save one.

It’s Good to Have a Plan

In a previous post, I mentioned an upcoming album cover for Austin-based singer / songwriter Jeff Roy. His album, "My Retirement Plan" is now released and the images below are my contribution to that project. A change in theme from the art in the previous post came...

Rollin’ the Rocks

I figured a Casino theme was appropriate for this Austin-based Singer Songwriter. A wordsmith and tune-mason, his rock-solid "Texas Music" performances are sure to pack the house and leave the crowds wowed. His Double r Nothin' project supports him in varying...
