Part of my studio, the wall next to my computer and a vintage sugar mold that holds my mechanical pencils etc.
Below is the wall next to my computer desk.  It's decorative, but utilitarian.  The white framed boxes, underneath the Create sign, open to hold reference or items of inspiration.  I can easily...

Stop the Orphan Works Act:
The Orphan Works Act is back.  It will never die, because it will be so lucrative to unscrupulous companies.  They want to steal our art and use the images free of charge. The fact that we have created these images is of no importance.  They want to be able to make the prints, cards, and t-shirts from our work and take the profits.


Letters must be written by  July 23, 2015 to try and keep this from happening.
