Bernie and Hillary, Hillary and Bernie

Friday, February 5th, 2016

I really enjoyed the debate last night between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, vying for the democratic nomination for President of the US.

Murray Tinkelman

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

I was very saddened yesterday to learn of the death of Murray Tinkelman, an illustrator and educator who has meant so much to so many.

Busy, Busy, Bangkok

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

Bangkok is one BUSY city. I don’t really know what I expected, I guess my biggest image of Bangkok was informed by the movie The King and I. There were definitely many opulent temples and palaces to admire (more on that in another post) but the thing that struck me the most about this city was […]

Waterloo Street, Singapore

So I decided to start with Waterloo Street in Singapore, where I had the privilege of teaching a workshop at the 6th Annual […]
