“Art is a byproduct of an act of total attention.”

– Dorothea Lange, photographer

and more

Art is Everywhere.

I believe that art is everywhere, and everyone is an artist. So my “art page” isn’t a typical fine art gallery, although some of that is here. But the rest of the page is full of skating pics and cosplay poses and pencil sketches and music compositions and a handful of other random fun and creative adventures. I’m not selling anything here; I’m celebrating creativity in all its wild and wondrous forms. I hope you enjoy it all as much as I have, and…

may art happen to you too!
