I don’t do much dancing these days. It became less about moving to the music and more about looking good whilst moving to the music. And my gyrations need work.

I’m having a lot of fun with Perk at Work these days. Being in New York helped me get over some of my hang ups and opened me up to just draw freely and naturally. Since the feel of Perk at Work is a bit looser, I decided to change up the website as well. [...]
Perk at Work was recently featured as an interesting website in the article “Making Life Better One Site at a Time” published in Ventanas Magazine. Ventanas a magazine focused on “The enjoyment of fine southwestern living.” It’s the biggest and best magazine in Southern New Mexico and I am honored to have Perk at Work [...]
As I drew this, I was listening to Dan Miller’s “48 Days to the Work You Love” podcast. He kept on talking about this business model vs. that business model. It all kinda fit together. Great stuff on his podcast by the way. Check it out if you want to love your work or get [...]
Some look good in a swimsuit and think they look good. Some look good in a swimsuit and don’t think they look good. Some who don’t look good in a swimsuit but think they look good. Some who don’t look good in a swimsuit and don’t think they look good. Then there are those who [...]
It’s hot! Why can’t it be cold? Soon I’ll complain that it’s cold and wonder why it can’t be hot. It’s a vicious cycle.
There’s this great place in town called Mikey’s Place – warehouse retrofitted as an art/dance studio. Tonight they had a function (for lack of a better term) for artists of all sorts. Artist note: The other night I ventured into a local Chamber of Commerce meeting to try to rub elbows. I felt like a [...]
Do you ever get the feeling that our bodies are telling us that we shouldn’t be working at around 3:00 pm but, rather, taking a nap? I know that I’m not productive in the least when I’m tired. Yet, when I work at a desk job, it’s frowned upon to take a nap at the [...]
Don’t get me wrong, I do sympathize with those who are having a hard time in this down economy. I too had a hard time getting a job a while back when things went weird. That’s why I’m working on not depending on having a job but having a business. In my opinion, free agency [...]
I’ve finished the internship with MAD Magazine. What an amazing experience! I’ll post some pics soon enough but for now it’s back to work for me… or working on finding work. Six weeks in New York City has a way of draining one’s pocketbook. No worries. I’ll get to hustling and see what jobs pop [...]
I drew this strip while staying in the East Village of Manhattan. I inked it in a coffeehouse called Think Coffee. That place was probably the busiest coffeehouses I’ve ever been in. There was so much energy pulsating through the room, so much chatter and people having a great time. What a great experience. And [...]
As I finish up my dream internship with MAD, I have to say a little something more about Sam Viviano. Anyone familiar with MAD knows Sam Viviano’s work. He has a crisp, dynamic style with all sorts of intricate backgrounds and detail. And his caricatures are always spot on. Sam doesn’t let us down. I think that’s part of [...]
This is a bit of a departure but the idea came to me and I went with it. That’s the beauty of having something all your own: you can do with it what you please. I had to add the Chihuahua just because. Enjoy!
Isn’t this always the case when we have and event to go to? Usually what happens is we figure we don’t have enough time to eat before and we hope they serve actual food and not just small squares of cheese and pretzel sticks. Then we get there and they have pretzel sticks and that’s [...]
I’ve been flirting with the idea of trying to barter items for meals at restaurants. It might work if the items is useful or interesting. If I had a Sasquatch foot, that might just do the trick.
