Episode 6: 100 Subscribers! :) And a Gift For You

Ep6 - 100 Youtube subscribers

Woot! Just found out in the last few days that I passed 100 subscribers on YouTube! 🙂 Ok ok I know that’s not very much. Especially when there are plenty of people there with thousands or even hundreds-of-thousands of subscribers! But’s a big deal for me. Since starting the channel back in 2010, I’ve lingered […]

Wacom Mobilestudio Pro 16 Review Image 1

A few weeks ago, I published a review of the new Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16 (you can watch that episode here). That review has been watched a few thousand times (which is a big deal for me – thank you!) I really tried to touch on all the pros and cons in that initial video. It’s […]

For my son’s birthday invitation a few years back, I wanted to turn him into Darth Maul from Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace (you remember – that movie with Jar Jar. The horrible writing. The corny jokes. But mostly, Jar Jar). Despite all of its shortcomings, it did have a great bad guy in […]

For this week’s video I thought I would share a quick tip to improve the color of your video lighting in your productions. Some of you may create YouTube videos at home, and perhaps you always shoot with window light. But what if you want to shoot, say, at night in a room that has warm-colored […]

This past fall, with a lot of excitement, the new Wacom MobileStudio Pro was released. I was in the market for a new laptop, and I wasn’t really excited with what Apple did (and didn’t do) with their new Macbook Pro. So, for the first time in about 14 years, I bought a Windows machine. […]

Episode 1: The start of…something.

If you want to make sure you’re going to do something, tell everyone you are going to do it. We’ve all heard something similar to this. The idea being that if you tell everyone what you are going to do, you are now accountable to them as well as yourself. I’m in a bit of […]

40 Hours of Amazing – What to Expect At Your First Art Show

Do you think you are ready for a show, but have never done one before? How do you take that first step? What should you expect? This is where I found myself back in the beginning of 2016. I was approved to have a booth at the huge, annual Junior League “A Christmas Affair” show […]

What Hustle *Is Not* About

what hustle is not about

Hustle. Grind. Donkeywork. Elbow grease. They all pretty-much mean the same thing. I follow quite a few people that preach on the power of hustle. Probably the king right now is Gary Vaynerchuk. His videos and posts are entertaining, informative, and can leave you with the distinct taste of ‘I suck’ at the end of […]
