New Art in neon layers

It’s no secret that for the past year, I’ve been creating layered art pieces. I’ve wanted to play with textures and bright colors. In February of this year, I started thinking of art – and my life, really – in terms of bold color and choices. With this post, I present three bright and boldly […]

Olive Garden: From a Business Perspective

  Have you heard about the new “breadstick sandwiches” coming to the Olive Garden? It’s the Italian food chain’s response to sluggish sales. No seriously, it is. Not making money? Solution: Offer breadstick sandwiches that come with more [endless] breadsticks.

A Media Comment: Hollywood’s New Obsession with Bizarre Sex

UPDATE (February 13, 2015): Forget about how bizarre Gone Girl was because this week, the film adaptation of E.L. James’ wildly popular book, Fifty Shades of Grey, opens nationwide. A lukewarm reception from American critics says expectations are met – and that the adaptation is a flatly acted soft-core porn that almost can’t survive against the […]

Michael Brown

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 […]

#ThanksMichelleObama: Why it’s a stupid trend.

I wasn’t going to bother writing something people probably weren’t going to read anyway – that’s how it goes with political opinions or comments – but I just couldn’t resist. For two days, I’ve noticed the trending hashtag “#ThanksMichelleObama.” Behind the hashtag are pictures, of school lunches that look less than appetizing, backed by sarcastic commentary about […]

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 […]
