I spent the last three years taking coursework and working on my thesis for my Master's degree in Technology and Communication from UNC Chapel Hill's School of Journalism and Mass Communication. There was no lack of rigor in the program, a program that broadened my horizons. If you are interested in hearing more about it, I'd be happy to talk to you offline.
Now that school is over, I will be updating this blog more often.
We had a successful Kickstarter campaign for Sea Urchins Book Two: In the Shadow of the Sea Apes. I'm working on a 10-page exclusive for that book now, and will tell you more about it soon.
Congratulations to the N.C. Zoo for winning an American Graphic Design Award for outdoor signage! Stacey Brown, Betsy Powell, Lance Hill and Bill Rankin did a great job! The kiosk is located at the Solar Pointe pavilion at the N.C. Zoo in Asheboro, N.C. I'm lucky to have helped as programmer!
Scroll through the gallery at the bottom of this link
to see the winning kiosk, Plug into the Future.

There's still time to sign up for my drawing class at the Carrboro Arts Center.
We'll work on basics via still lifes, plein air, portraiture, figure drawing and illustration.

I've been more active updating the Carolina Adobe User Group
website than I have been updating this site. It's slowly growing, but there are lots of good development links over there now. Big plans for 2011.
Here's a holiday greeting from everyone at my workplace. Play the game and find us, we're all in there, even Pam, who left us to pursue other options yesterday.
