In a few days I will be starting a Podcast Fellowship (will share more details later). I will be learning with a great group of people who have great ideas, under the guidance and coaching of one of my favorite writers and teachers. In our online discussion community, someone asked us all to post our blogs – for those of us who blog. It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, partly because I post my drawings on Instagram. I do a lot of writing for work, but maybe I will get back to writing about what I draw…or drawing about what I write. I thank the fellowship for reminding me of this again.

From this Fellowship, I hope to share and be generous with others as they have been with me. I also look forward to learning the technical and creative aspects of podcasting so that I can share it with my students and others.

Now, about the drawing above, I called it “Tentative 01”. I love lines in every form and this is one of my drawings. The patterns, geometry, texture, color, physicality, and more. I look forward to continuing to share again.

– Thinking Insomniac

I sketched my Makerbot yesterday.I have used it in several design projects, design experiments, and even 3D printed little toys for my friends’ kids.

Have a good one! 


Our thoughts and prayers are with you..


Creativity is essential…
Embrace it. Develop it. Exercise it.


Prepare, prepare, prepare.
Train, train, train.

Prepare and train for what you want. Should it, or let me say WHEN it shows up, you will be ready. In any form of athletic training, when you skip training day, your body reminds you. Your mind starts to make you think you are tired, or that you can skip another session. Fight that urge, mentally pack your gear and go to training. Should a tournament show up, you are already ready.


Of course it’s difficult. But it is important, so I will keep doing it, until it becomes easy.

I don’t ascribe to describing something as difficult or easy, since that depends on each person’s own perspective. If I have years of experience or familiarity with an area, it might be easier for me than someone who is completely unfamiliar.

But, my main thought here is that with persistence, determination, and consistent work…10,000 hours… It will become more familiar to you. If it’s important to you, it will eventually become easy.

Have a great day everyone!


Do it!


Have Passion!

Let’s have a great start to a great week!


It’s been one year since I did this piece. Don’t stop. Keep imagining!
And keep doing.
