Entry to the commune is a $1000 down payment, then is free as long is you contribute labor to sustain the commune. To be considered for this opportunity, you must meet our strict criteria for admission (which we keep to ourselves). So, in four sentences or less, tell us how you would contribute to this community. We are particularly interested in people with practical skills of gardening, carpentry, plumbing, and masonry, but we could also use all around creatives, DIY makers and users of various steampunk contraptions, and engineers, scientists, and theorists (people smarter than us) who could debunk all this stuff as foundation-less, or make the whole idea better.

These are new drawings that fill in gaps in my newest series. Eventually I'd like to make enough drawings to depict the transitions between the major doubling stages, having each drawing be one frame in a smooth animation of cell division.

This is a 6.5" x 6.5" drawing done in preparation for the Draw Your Face Off Event at Space last night. I wanted to know in advance what kind of drawings I would do during the event, so this test helped me decide. I don't have any images of the drawings I made during the event, but they all had this general look. I made ten drawings in four hours, and they all sold!
There was a huge turnout, as usual for Space on a First Friday. There was a funk of competition in the air. It felt odd and satisfying to be displayed like a dancing monkey. It was all very exciting and I would love to be a part of something like this again. Thanks to the Pine Haven Collective for inviting me to participate.

I just acquired some glass stringers (wires) and I'm using my little smithy torch to do some rogue lampworking. This is the first time I've ever worked with hot glass (besides sand casting) and it sure looks like it. This 2" tall "scholars rock" was a blast to make, I can't wait to make something that looks good.

This thing is actually grown by adding little blobs of molten wax which make up the striated texture. It is completely hollow. It is one inch long.I didn't realize my scanner was so dusty, I guess I should clean it.

I colored this drawing after re-reading the classic Envisioning Information by Edward R. Tufte.
The "wrong" paths will lead back to where the choice began.. If the traveller is lucky, or if time doesn't exist the path will lead to the "ideal". If time does exist, the traveller will likely end up stranded. I apologize for the quotes.
