It has never been easier to get your creative work seen as it is today. Between blogs, podcasts, YouTube, SoundCloud, and an army of social media apps, anyone can build a following for their art, music, or writing.

Oh my God! Oh my God! Did you know that they were going to release a new trailer? I woke up this morning and thought, what am I going to talk about today. Should I talk about political stuff? Fashion stuff?
No, I’m just going to watch this trailer a dozen times and maybe draw some Iron Man action scenes in crayon.Read More
I welcome you to check out Thoroughly Thursday - the "Be Cool" Edition. This week, I talk about being “cool” (truly, it’s a struggle), the excellent new book by J.D. Vance, Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis, a new jazz album by the ever-groovy Jeff Goldblum, and some animations from my friends (and perfect Holiday gift option) Charity On Top.Read More

Where Bill Murray appears to exist in a certain inscrutability that catches your attention, Goldblum just seems to be having a great time hanging out with everyone.Read More
I’m excited to announce that this last week, I was able to work on a two projects for friends/client Charity On Top. If you are looking for a gift to get “the person who has everything” definitely check out their website as a great gift-giving option.
For our project, we created a new short animation and updated a previous video as part of their Holiday promotions. The first was straight promotional for social media ads, while the second is a Holiday update to their Introduction animation.Read More
I have found that I’m a total sucker for the “sunk cost fallacy” in business. The Sunk Cost Fallacy states that we’re less inclined to stop something or give something up if we’ve already invested time into it. Ergo, most of us have clothes in our closets that we never wear that we refuse to give away because they were expensive.Read More
Our relationship is changing. I’m beginning to realize that I’m now a father of a young adult who is going to continue to grow ever more independent. I’m not sure how I feel about this.Read More
