• All projects great and small

    First formal post for what I hope will be an ongoing thing.

    My goal for this is to talk about art, instruct where I can, entertain and amuse. Also review a beer or two in the bargain. That in itself is oddly timed because every January for the last few year I have gone

    cold turkey in the booze department mostly as an experiment.

    Many people expound the benefits of this but for my part I notice mostly better sleep patterns. All that

    said rest assured I am well versed in all manner of beverages.

    I like to draw monsters. I like many different mediums, all are means to an end. None are better or more real to my mind, my computer is just the pencil I plug in.

    I've created art for card games, board games, book illustrations, storyboards, movie props, concept art,

    package design, screen printing for garments, CD covers, posters, panel layouts for science equipment, medical illustrations and even designs drawn in the

    dirt on the sides of vehicles.

    Many irons in many fires, I'm interested in absolutely everything.

    The Beer:

    Buffalo Bill's Brewery Blueberry Oatmeal Stout.

    I've had a couple very tasty blueberry flavored beers, this was not one of them.

    This could be used as an enema if you wanted poop to have a bad day.

    Should you find yourself in the presence of this beer, run away


    This beer does not like you, it hates everything you stand for. It is an angry beer and will

    transform into a foaming gyser upon opening (This has happened both times I bought this stuff.).

    It sat next to blueberries like a pod person and absorbed it's form and became an unfeeling liquid devoid of joy.

    The problem with this is that beer with fruit should have notes of it throughout, this one only hints at a flavor at best. This tastes like a roadie with an armload of gear was kicked down some stairs

    Do you like swill? Then buy some and throw this stuff away.

    I've never wanted to give a bottle the finger before, now I do.

    Please keep in mind that I love Stouts and Porters best and am not a fan of "hoppy" beers like IPAs so that the fact that I had a bad time with this one is telling.

    Score: 1 planetary invasion by our purple overlords and subsequent death of all life in 75 hours.
