I have been absent of late – off dreaming dreams and playing with ideas. I am currently constructing the latticework of my latest project which may be a serialized graphic novella, an animation or an interactive game, perhaps all 3 or none of these at all …
In the virtual world I have managed to develop a couple of life-like male avatars – here are their untouched photos –
This led me to write a paper on The Applied Aesthetics of Humanoid Avatars – from an artist’s perspective – which will be made available to academically-minded outlets after I finish editing it.
My two computer games from 1989 are on their way to The Strong Museum in Rochester New York for emulator testing and possible revival. Many thanks to Assistant Professor Adrienne Shaw of the Temple University Department of Media Studies and Production for her interest and efforts regarding this.
My film, A Legacy of Forgotten Names, is on hold until the narration can be recorded.
In closing – here’s video images of my brain! LOL

I can neither confirm nor deny that such a secret organization exists or has ever existed … but if they did, perhaps their invitations would look like this.
Tonight I was thinking – what if there were Secret Societies for Artists much like the Illuminati, who passed down their knowledge and closely guarded secrets from one generation to the next? What would their seal look like? What would their secrets be? How would one become a member? Just imagine having the inner working knowledge of illustrators from the Golden Age (1880’s to 1920’s) or even before that! How they mixed their inks and fashioned their pens. What was their work ethic? How did they define aesthetic arrest?
Anyway – I had so much fun doing this – I just looked-up at the clock and it’s nearly 4:00AM!
There is no feeling in the world like the feeling I get when I finish one of these drawings.
I’ll be working on the film over the next few weeks.
The owl is slowing coming together. I’ve had some issues with the camera that I am using for the filming of it but thus far I have been able to make adjustments and improve the process.
Every new project is a learning adventure and that is what keeps things interesting and exciting for me. I look forward to going to the drawing table every day.
Happy Monday! Hope you all have a good one!
