Love Lesson #9
I met him right after breaking up with someone. We didn’t have much in common, but we kept each other company for awhile. He fed me when I had no money. He even made the meals! His go-to meal was white rice, steak and tomatoes. We stopped seeing each other during a blizzard when after an argument…

What I learned from love lessons #1
Awhile back I wrote a collection of thoughts and quotes on the things I learned from my relationships over the years. I made illustrations to go along with each quote. I thought it would be a physical book, but had the inspiration to add it to my blog. The one below is from Juan R.
I went to see Preston Singletary’s glass exhibit, Raven and the Box of Daylight”, at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. His work takes Tinglit symbolism and art and does them in glass with some with mixed media. He found his “niche” after years of experimentation with realist…
