Hato, niwikana! Hello, my friends!

As I work on marketing my artwork and Online Studio, I am going to extend my break from the podcast for another week or so. I need to think about getting more earrings and paintings made, while also helping around the house and getting things fixed up.

I Failed!

Yep! That’s right. I’m a failure…

There are so many things I wanted to complete by the end of 2018 and I didn’t finish any of them!

Resolutions for 2018:

  • Lose weight
    • This has been a complete failure every year. I make it a habit to tell myself that I’m going to lose weight by the end of the year and it never works out.

New Online Store @ Threadless

Hiteto! Hello!

I’ve been working on some new designs and artwork for a new shop that I’ve opened up on Threadless.com.

Some of the designs can be found on Society6 and Redbubble, but I am creating some artwork and designs that can only be found on threadless.

Untitled-3

I hope you check it out and share it around. All designs are original. Hit me up on Facebook or through the contact page here on the blog and let me know what you think or if you have any questions and/or comments about anything.

Off To School!

For most parents, their kids are heading back to school.

But in about a week or so our little boy, Eli, will be heading off to school to attend his very first day.

We’re both excited and scared, wondering how he will do without us around and surrounded by new people.

We also worry about how he will develop and grow. If he will be able to learn as well as the other children.

So, I am looking into different home-based learning materials to be able to teach him some basic concepts and keep his mind stimulated. Continue reading Off To School!

Artist Area: My Dream Studio

Getting to know a little about who I am and what I look for in an artist studio…

 


 

When I think of the studio that I want the most, I see a lot of space.

I love space.

Big room. High ceilings. Even a loft to look out over my studio from while sipping on my $8 dollar La Moneda Reserva Malbec (you should try it)… Continue reading Artist Area: My Dream Studio

Focusing on A Healthy Life

There’s nothing I want more than to always be here for my son.


As an artist, I sit on my butt a lot and I usually don’t like moving from my chair, especially when I have ideas flowing.

But I have constant problems with lower back pain, and I know without a doubt that it’s caused from sitting on my butt all day long.

So, my wife and I have been looking for an easy diet and exercise program or book that would help get our lives on track to a healthier life, and there’s one book that helped tremendously. Continue reading Focusing on A Healthy Life

Google G Suite

Hey! I hope you’re having a good weekend and living it up before you head back to work.

Once again, I find myself still awake late into the night. I’ve been surfing the interwebs and found something that’s pretty cool, especially if you own a business of any size.

If I had a bigger business it’s something I would definitely get, because I use Google for just about everything.

It’s called G Suite by Google Cloud, and it allows businesses of any size to simplify their work and get things done by allowing these businesses to enhance their productivity, allowing greater innovation, and offers greater economic benefits compared to other solutions.

Tech Saturday! Or Something Like That…

So, I got bored in the middle of the night and decided to throw a random piece of tech out there and tell you a little bit about it.

I found this particular piece interesting, and it looked like something I would buy, especially if I decided to take my family to the park for a picnic or went fishing for a few hours and needed something more than the speaker on my phone.

It has good range and amazing battery life. Check it out… Continue reading Tech Saturday! Or Something Like That…

What I’m Up To

Not a whole lot has changed really. Just cruising through life the best that I know how.

I’m still writing and drawing on my books, and I’m still creating artwork for my online stores, though I haven’t posted any new art yet.

I’ve been busy with work and trying to save some money to buy more art supplies, which is really hard nowadays it seems like.

I’ve been struggling with the decision to give up art for while in order to get things lined back up and save some cash. I don’t buy a whole of materials and what I do buy goes quickly, especially when my ideas are coming faster than I can get them onto a canvas or into Photoshop. Continue reading What I’m Up To

Read This! But Not Really.

Anxiety.

I hate it.

There’s nothing I hate more about myself than fearing things. Mainly people.

You know that jittery feeling when you’ve had too much caffeine, or you’re walking down the hallway to your first job interview? Yeah, that feeling. That’s the feeling I have when I meet new people, or I have to speak or stand in front of people, or even when my name is called out loud in a group of people.

My heart sinks into the pit of my gut and I start sweating. My muscles tense up and my heart begins its all-out assault against the inside of my chest. Continue reading Read This! But Not Really.
