Why Jurassic World will be the best “Jurassic” since the original

Why Jurassic World will be the best “Jurassic” since the original

For months we’ve been teased by Jurassic World (coming June 12, 2015). From the San Diego Comic Con poster – to the trailer that arrived two days early – it’s become clear: Jurassic World is going to be the best entry in the franchise since the original Jurassic Park (in 1993)! Before I begin, here’s the … Continue reading

My comment on Ferguson

My comment on Ferguson

It’s easy to blame Darren Wilson for the death of an unarmed black man named Michael Brown – because it happened. What seems to be more difficult for everyone – from the media to the violent demonstrators – is to hold Michael Brown accountable for his own death. As stated in last night’s decision, evidence shows (and … Continue reading

Lawrence soars as the Mockingjay in Part 1

Lawrence soars as the Mockingjay in Part 1

Well, it’s been a while since we’ve last spoken – or since you’ve last had something to read (from me anyway). Now, the holidays are upon us – and if you’re like me, you’ve been bitten by the Christmas spirit. I’m excited! I can’t wait! I’m ready for Christmas lights, hot chocolate, holiday parties and … Continue reading

New Art: Endanger Cancer, not Elephants

New Art: Endanger Cancer, not Elephants

I created this piece, Endanger Cancer, not Elephants, because I love and am passionate about saving elephants – and because I know several breast cancer survivors. I want this to be a symbol of hope for them. On the surface, elephant poaching and cancer may seem like vastly different issues – and you’d be right to say … Continue reading
