How I make stuff

I’m not sure if I’m more of an adventurer at heart or more of an artist/author. But one thing is for sure, the adventure needs to come first. Adventure is my muse; my art is how I tell my story; and, my stories are meant to inspire, entertain and educate others. I truly wantto make a contribute and help raise humanity to new levels of amazingness.

Those are lofty ideals. Too lofty, probably. Anyway, here are some Articles about how I concept ideas, draw pictures and — most importantly — test my ideas in the real world to make sure they work!

If you would like to join the adventure — literally or figuratively — go here to learn how to make an adventure. Or please, help support our work.
