~ 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 shows Sunday Tea at a friend's home; I'm the one with white hair and a blue jacket. The jacket has a nice embroidered picture of the Star Trek Next Generation version of the Enterprise on the back, but my hair pretty much covers it.


~~~ I have now recovered a number of old pictures of my earlier work, and will be posting some of them. The quality is not good, but hopefully they give some idea.
~~~ One of the things I do is act as a poll clerk for the local precinct at all elections. Not a lot of people showed up for the primary. More and more are voting by mail. I suspect a lot of people are not voting. Tsk.
~~~ More next time....
  • Listening to: the lack of rain
  • Reading: more Graphic Novels
  • Watching: the sky
  • Playing: solitaire
  • Eating: Food; most good, some excellent
  • Drinking: Water, yoghurt drink


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.

Your painted rocks (via Pinterest) really grabbed my attention.  They're beautiful.
