100 Heads for Haiti
It was an honor to be asked to participate in this benefit exhibit. I made 3 pieces to make sure I got a good one. They are shown actual size.
100 HEADS FOR HAITI show curated by David Plunkert & Spur Design with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders. Opening Saturday April 10, 6-8:30.
Amish Hair
I read in this months VIA magazine that the World famous Amish built fireplace mantles were being given away free!. This miracle invention that uses about the same electricity as a coffee maker puts out the heat and looks very stylish.  The brains behind this beauty is a computer board that controls the Fireless Flame technology that was developed by Asian engineers. That's right, Asian engineers and the Amish getting together to build this invention that has no chimney, no vents, no wood and no smoke. This surprising collaboration inspired me to do this piece.
Do you like technology ?. I do,  but I also need the balance of analog and then when I do too much analog work I need to get a fix of my rendered digital style. Here is an illustrated cover for a new DVD,  Silverlight.
Silverlight is a powerful development platform for creating engaging, interactive user experiences for Web, desktop, and mobile applications when online or offline.
