Many months ago, I made a one-gallon batch of an experimental beer I called Baltimorphic Complex. I called it this, because I wanted to brew something special for the Geological Society of America’s annual meeting, which was to be held in Baltimore in November (it’s going on right now, in fact). Baltimorphic Complex is aContinue reading “Culinary Art – The Baltimorphic Complex”
I’ve been studying 14th century German longsword for over a year now. It’s a wonderful martial art which has help me recover some (and make gains in other areas) of my physical prowess that’s rather fallen apart with middle age and parenthood. Recently, I learned a new guard in which you hold the sword lowContinue reading “Longsword and Imagination Collide Unexpectedly”
It’s November. This means three things to add to my daily schedule that aren’t there for the rest of the year.
Back in November, I participated in Art Every Day month. I re-committed myself to doing something artsy every day. Even though I wasn’t entirely successful, I still enjoyed the process and truly benefited from the reminder to keep art alive in my life. During November “15 minutes of art” became a daily task on myContinue reading “Remembering Art”
This morning I was inspired. I had planned on spending the day grading exams and maybe working on the quiver I told you about earlier this month. Instead, I came upon this post: BEER ADVENT CALENDAR I had to make one. I didn’t have all the suggested materials, but I knew I could improvise. (NextContinue reading “Art Every Day – Day 30”

The last ten days I’ve done no visual arts, but I did finish writing 50,000 fresh new words on a novel that’s going to be totally awesome when it’s finished. In other words, IContinue reading “Art Every Day – Day 29 – I’m still here”
I’ve been trying to do art in some form or fashion every day through November, as part of the Art Every Day Month challenge. Because I’m also doing NaNoWriMo, and attempting to write a 50000 word novel this month, I suppose that I’m accomplishing art every day so long as I’m writing every day. I’mContinue reading “Art Every Day – Day 19”
Still trying to do some art every single day. This week has been very difficult. Nevertheless, I’ve succeeded – though I have not accomplished the little project I wanted to finish this week. I am finally back to drawing fish. I didn’t finish the one I’m working on for today. Here’s the work-in-progress.
I’ve had one of those days, wherein my schedule was slightly disrupted, so nothing has quite worked out… But I have come to a place that I will call ‘done’ for my #elegram:
Not a good art day for me. This is my current project:
