Access your creativity through the “back door” of doodling to create original works from your imagination. Ever wondered why some drawings in spite of best efforts to be accurate look stiff and weird? Learn some of the top pitfalls of drawing and how to fix them to take your work to the next level. Beginners welcome.

COLOR INK MAGIC

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.

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.

Match-Liss

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