Colored inks offer a huge range of versatility for creating layers with your painting. Learn how to create glow and shadow effects to add more depth and light to your painting. Mix colors beyond the basics to make both more naturalistic and vivid effects.

Crackle Milk Paint Art

Reading between the cracks in the paint and pulling out the images, similar to a Rorschach text.

I make my own milk paint and then create layers using ink, acrylic, gouache and airbrush.

Practicality & Flubber

My alter-egos. Practicality is the sensible one who has always weighed about 98lbs. Flubber looks more like me and acts more immature. I think...

The FAPC Experience

FAPC is my acronym for "Fucking Awful Possible Cancer" - it wasn't cancer, it wasn't "pre-cancer," it was atypical cells and they wanted them out. Now.

My experience with the healthcare complex, mortality and how I wanted to live the rest of my life.


Book in progress about what it's like to date post-divorce, after 18 years of being out of the game.
