Mosaics

Lantern Bridge Mosaic Thinking organically when creating art is hard for me. I’m an analyst. I take my hammer (or my head), smash it into a problem to bash it down to its tiniest parts and then fit the pieces together in dozens of different ways until I solve it. Hard to smash a piece…… Continue reading Mosaics

Postcards

AKA “How I started my latest writing art project: Postcards from Port Liberty.” Welcome to Port Liberty! I love getting real mail. Not email. Not all the ads or bills. REAL mail.

Exo-Suits and the Arena

Exo-Suits range from simple exo-skeletal frames that augment the wearer’s speed, strength, and ability to jump, to fully enclosed powered mechanical suits with high-grade armor and weaponry. Exo-Suits do have military applications, and every company worth its salt has at least one minimal Exo-Suit contingent in each weight class, but most skirmishes between nations since…… Continue reading Exo-Suits and the Arena
