~ I'm often asked how I do my carvings, so I've done an essay "Carving Skulls and Stuff" in the Information folder of my gallery:…

~ Items here that have not yet sold are in the Unsold Items folder of my gallery.… If you want to buy one, or commission a custom piece, send me a note.

~ The current Webcam selection is the group photo of a Time Travellers Picnic. The general rule for time travel clothing is to err on the side of earlier than your destination time, rather than later, or wear your regular clothing and have a good story; but you get some who arrive directly from whenever they've been.


Off to PantheaCon to sit in another dealer room, selling my stuff. :)
Now at the con, set up in dealer room. I keep running into people wearing stuff they've bought from me over the years, or not wearing it but telling me they own it and like it a lot.
Still at the con, sitting in dealer room. More people wearing stuff they've bought from me over the years, or not wearing it but telling me they own it and like it a lot, and buying more of my stuff. Also, new people buying my stuff. Could get to like this.
Still at the con, sitting in dealer room, selling stuff, meeting people. Several other dealers are old friends from many years together, here and other places. I feel a bit weird, not getting to convention events and parties, particularly when I know so many of the panel and lecture speakers, and party goers. Here I have staff member room (and food) credit so I have a bed instead of a floor space as at FurCon. No free wi-fi in the dealer room or sleeping room, so I type this in the lobby after my after-dinner nap.
And, after one last day in the Dealer Room (actually a half-day, as the room is only open four hours on Monday), I am home, and sleepy....

Don Simpson
United States
~~~ 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.

Hi Don, you are a good craftsman with lots of interesting ideas. And that steam punk stuff fits to you ;-)

The thing I like the most is that small Channeled Stone Pendant C, it's simple, mystical and maybe from outer space...
thanks for llama, sorry for late reply
