Friday Creative Day (moderate guilt)

When I was planning to quit my job and go out on my own (just before Covid) I decided there were three ways I could go. I could build a medium-sized graphics and advertising firm OR I could run a smaller shop and farm out the work to my very talented friends OR I could…

Sometimes signs are signs

In life, we may receive many signs. Some signs come in the form of visions. Some signs come as actions or coincidences that defy explanation. Or sometimes, signs are just signs. My niece needed two signs for her wedding. She left the task to my oldest child who, nowadays with school and looming college stuff,…

The birth of a ghost

I want to encourage you to turn your doodles into tshirts, mugs, or whatever. Lets be clear that I am not sponsored by any company at all. A short look at this site’s menu will show I use all the sites! That said, I want you to not be afraid to create. Make a RedBubble…

What a good day in the Bunkr looks like

Today is a great day in the Bunkr. I feel positive, full of ideas, and brimming with energy. Why? I have had the first good nights sleep in two weeks and it shows. So, why would you read a post about someone just getting a good night’s sleep? This isn’t going to be about that….

Carnot Cycle of T-Shirt Production

Way back in the early 1800’s Sadi Carnot came up with the concept (I am over simplifying here) if you start a point and come back to that point later then the net change is zero. That is, you have done no work. I don’t agree with Carnot as far as t-shirt production is concerned….

A Mini setback

I find a lot of my ideas while I am driving. Sometimes, I’ll just roll the windows down and drive until I figure out whatever is bothering me. Sometimes it has ended up being a hilariously unexpected road trip. Several years ago I purchased a Mini Clubman for this exact purpose. It was my daily…

Creativity

My friends, creativity is hiding behind every corner. Its in the color of a pea or in the sound of a passing bus in a busy town in the rain. However, because of the times we live in or some miswired neurotransmitters in our heads creativity becomes hard to find. We turn up our senses…

Camping and dealing

Today I am hunkered down in the bunkr (see what I did there?) listening to the AJR Brothers and designing my little heart out. I have been able to reach that artist tunnel vision where all of the outside world melts away and you become totally immersed in what you are doing. Even though I…

The 2020 Covid Vacation that didn’t happen

As you may be aware, we are in the middle of a pandemic. This thing started just before spring break and continued all summer long. Its becoming fall and school has started. I mean “started” depending on what that means to you. Anyway, I missed any kind of vacation and my mind and body need…
