Aunt Nancy

Thank you to my Aunt Nancy, who always encouraged me to draw, bought me art supplies/sketchbooks for Birthdays and Christmases, took such tender care of her gardens and plants, cooked all of those handmade delicious holiday meals, laughed heartily from the belly, smiled perpetually, gave us so much joy on her backyard trampoline/in her swimming pool, threw fun parties in her basement, taught us the benefits of living in a family filled with jokes and pranks (many centered around Easter Peeps), introduced us to Buckwheat Zydeco, and exemplified unrestrained freedom through her many adventures with Uncle Tom, to Texas and beyond.

We love you Aunt Nancy and thank you for all of the memories. RIP.

Inspirado Projecto On Instagram!

Its been a blast making immediate videos as soon as ideas pop up. Utilizing a combination of the video apps “FaceSwapLive”, “Video Filters”, “Video Color”, and iMovie, I’ve been having fun seeing how to stretch their capabilities within the time limit of 1 minute on Instagram. This has become a whole new medium for me to work with. Here’s my brief review of “Thimbleweed Park”, before I noticed a special feature on Instagram enabling me to post full-sized widescreen vids. Oh! also, if there are fun apps you’ve been experimenting with, please provide them in the comments section.

(do you recognize two of these characters?)

PS

If you love point-and-click adventure games like “Maniac Mansion,” Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders,” “Monkey Island,” Loom,” “Indiana Jones,” etc, please grant your curious imagination a huge favour (and  the gift of an amazing education) by exploring “Thimbleweed Park,” the newest pixel-puzzle by the Masterminds behind these aforementioned games!

Its available in all kinds of formats for $19.99!!!

Also, if you’re a school superintendent, please consider layering Thimbleweed Park into the curriculum. It teaches cooperation, collaboration, putting puzzles together, brilliant adventures, and pleasantness in embracing the unexpected Great Unknowns of seemingly impossible possibilities. These are all fantastic traits in helping students get along with eachother better, finding the fascinating within the seemingly mundane, rise to challenges, treat obstacles playfully, and inspire the invention of extraordinary concoctions!
