~ 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.


~~~ Actual rain has been falling every few days for a while now, and at two this morning there was lightning, thunder, and the roar of hard impacts on the roof; hail or large, high-velocity raindrops. More is expected. I like rain as long as it stays outdoors, and after a few years of almost no water falling from the sky we will need a lot to even start restoring what we tend to think of as normal conditions. Ideally, people will take this as a warning that weather is not dependable, but this seems unlikely.
~~~ I continue to work on chipping away at entropy in the house and the studio, reconnecting with long out of touch friends, going to interesting places, walking, recovering information from old notes and, having reconfigured my computer system, old blocks of saved files. Slow work, but rewarding.
~~~ So many projects, so little time....
  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: thunder and lightning, rain, more rain
  • Reading: Graphic Novels
  • Watching: more mystery shows
  • Playing: Oquonie
  • Eating: Food; most good, some excellent
  • Drinking: Water, yoghurt drink, eggnog


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.
