This pandemic is breaking down so many artificial barriers. For example, I never expected to see J. Kenji López-Alt's bare… View More

I made a watercolor poster for our (someday hopefully forthcoming) novel The Butterfly Koi, original size 18x24. Large areas of flat black are perhaps not best suited to watercolor, but enough layers of the relatively opaque Kuretake Gansai Tambi made it… View More

It’s clear that I have two papers to write: in the last two days, I have upgraded my computer to Catalina, tried mmhmm, created a Society6 account, prepped art, and troubleshot upgrading processes for my wordpress account to work with my host’s idiosyncrasies. Oh, and posted in micro.blog… View More

While I don't write every day, there is such enjoyment in looking back and seeing the joys, small and large, over the years.
