~ 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.


~~~ As I've mentioned, the local costal climate is such that the hotter the weather inland, the cooler it is here. So, going to a ceremony in downtown Berkeley, California, for a mass signing of the final steel beam of the new art museum and film archive, I found they had arranged for cold beer and snowcones, but the day was unexpectedly cold, foggy, and windy. This being in the art and theatre district, just west of the University of California campus, my housemate and I had an early supper at the Jazz Caffe, a small space downstairs at the Berkeley Jazzschool, with excellent food. I got a copy of The Shadow Hero at the nearby Fantastic Comics store. The next day was sunny and warm....

~~~ Continuing a theme from last journal:
Yet another 3D printing math artist:
And yet another:
One of my favorite jewelry makers is now doing some of the most amazing digital art I have ever seen:

  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Reading: Lovecraftian essays
  • Eating: tasty food
  • Drinking: refreshing water

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...
