Education
  • Hillcrest High School
    Art, 1972 - 1977
    When I started, there was only Art 1 - 3. My art teacher, Mr. Brite (a wonderful person and teacher) persuaded the school board that we needed Art 4 so one other student and I could take it. They agreed, but we had to hold the class before school hours. So, yes, I voluntarily attended an extra hour each day of my senior year! :)
  • Harding University
    Art, 1977 - 1978
    Majored in Art, minored in Music. Attended 1.5 years, but tested-out of a full semester, so I have 2 full years of credit. (Tested-out of college Algebra, but had only taken required General Math 1 and 2. I credit my excellent math teacher for that.)

Story
Introduction
Since I've been posting about cannabis, I thought I'd give an example of what my conditions do to me. This is me after ~36 hours of no sleep. I guarantee if I had cannabis, that would not happen.

Everyone (including me) likes to post pictures of thems
elves happy and nice looking. So I decided to get real, and post a picture of how I really look.
I'm being honest, folks! Narcotics and pharmaceuticals are not helping most of the time (they help some, and I'm glad for that). Cannabis does... if only I could have it all the time.

Will you please help? Let's legalize Cannabis! See: Southwest Missouri Cannabis Restoration and Protection Act


---

Before I became disabled, I majored in art, minored in music, and then taught myself to program (starting with BASIC in the 70's, but really got serious around 1983 when I bought my Commodore 64). Now I'm a computer programmer.

"Taught myself" means studying and practicing. I love to read, and this (technical) stuff (usually) seems easy for me.

More recently I've discovered Propellerhead Reason (music software that is a recording studio on your desktop).

I've also started studying electronics. I got an Arduino, sensors, etc., and I'm having too much fun! :)

I go by aBoogieman because I like to play boogie woogie music (among other genres). I also see some humor in that name.

Nice writeup! I'm going to use this one.
If your Internet access is down and you are not watching, is it really down? For most people the answer is most likely - who cares! Since our Internet connection had recently been down a few times, when I did notice it and I was getting curious about how frequently this was happening.

+Leland Green  heard of a guy automatically posting low speeds on his ISPs Twitter, demanding something to be done with it as speed was below advertised :)

This one is not new. I drew it while studying Don Seegmiller's Digital Character Design.

Another while studying "Digital Character Design and Painting" by Don Seegmiller. Also low-res, only. I like this one, even if my colors are very saturated. :)

I've updated this with some the new sketches. I'll try to keep it up, if you'd like to follow my art on Google+, this would be the place. :-) https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/Uqvc2

My neighbor gave me some awesome equipment yesterday! Yes, gave me! Check it out.

Power supply is like new. The oscilloscope is obviously older. (I still need to get the manual for it.)

The full-size version(s) of my current Google+ background. I painted this for a 1920x1080 wallpaper. It's still my wallpaper. ;-)

Created in Painter X3 using the kaleidoscope feature (and layers). I started with the orange curves and just kept going. Too much fun! Check out the full-res version. :)

+Joe C. Hecht Wow to your comment! :-) Thank you!!! Kind words like yours make me want to create more artwork. 👍

Currently my Cintiq is broken, which is a big disadvantage to me. I will get it repaired before too long... meanwhile, I'm using it as an excuse to concentrate on more traditional media.

The people in this store are all very nice. I have dealt with one of the co-owners (and one of the employees) and I have always been very happy. They have always treated me with respect. Great people. Great store. Very convenient! (Prices are the same as what USPS or UPS charges.)
