We created this image originally for the upcoming Issue (#5) of Sea Stoke magazine. The image will also be in our exhibition with Olek  called Sleep With The Fishes as part of the Honolulu Museum of Art’s World Oceans Day Hawai’i which opens June 6th, 2014.

Probably what I would feel like if I never worked for corporate evaaahh again. =D

"A Chance Encounter"
acrylic on paper
6 feet x 3 feet
2013

Commissioned by Microsoft for their art collection.  

Hard to explain the feeling if you have never been in the water with a huge whale. Its one of those very particular experiences in life that alter the brain in a permanent way.  There is a paradigm shift.  A shift in your placement of yourself in the universe (maybe something similar to seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time?).  The Awe. The Awesome. The Universe. Those terms have new meaning after certain experiences in life, and those experiences can continue to reverberate throughout a person’s life for years, if not forever.    

In the painting we wanted to capture the moment right before that shift takes place - before perspective is changed, before creativity is released.

Art inspired by ocean. Kewl!

Train Writing Weekend is a resounding success. Credit goes to my wife, Jessi, for the idea. We couldn’t take off on Friday for this trip, so we hopped an Amtrak in Chicago Saturday morning, showed up in a beautiful town along the Katy Trail about seven hours later, had dinner, stayed at a bed and breakfast, then caught the train back to Chicago today. I write this as we are en route to… I forget the next stop. I’m just writing.

Besides simply riding a train and getting to see the countryside, we realized one of the best parts of this idea is that it removes you from some of the most common and alluring distractions that can Get In the Way of That Thing You Want To Do. I’m on a train with nothing but my wife, an iPad, and a keyboard, and plenty of arm space and legroom—no dogs, no housecleaning, no errands, and for a good chunk of the time, no signal.

All we could do on this trip was talk to each other and write, and it was fantastic. If you enjoy or are curious about train travel and write or do just about anything creative that can fit in a roomy Amtrak seat, I highly recommend trying a Train Writing Weekend. It doesn’t matter where you go or stay, just go. You’ll thank me.

What we believe in.

What a fantastic idea. Need to steal the heck out of this one soon.

Gonna do this in Seattle to Vancouver trip! I love writing and reading on trains!

First tumble

I quit Facebook. I am not sure if we broke up for real. Only time will tell.

How does hope work and can I borrow it? Like just wipe some of that oily sheen off a forehead and apply to my wrinkled jaded bits.

In my short time all I’ve figured out is hope based on human “goodness” doesn’t work for me. There are too many actors in that play and the audience is fickle as it always is, as it should be.

My hope is based on just letting people be the not evil thing they want to be and then close their eyes and ears to judgements and praises. Maybe that is my kinda freedom.
