So, we all know - I assume my readers to be fellow Liberal Elite snowflakes, of course - that Trump is a nightmare.
Unfortunately, I was 'triggered' this week, even within my 'safe space' of bed. Frankly, it is my own fault: I've been watching the fantastic Ridley Scott version of Philip K. Dick's "The…

Not having posted for four weeks, you'd be forgiven for thinking I'd dropped off the face of the earth, but I was just having an extended Christmas holiday and settling back into work again. I didn't feel inclined to do a retrospective of the year gone by and I've a horrible feeling that next Christmas I may not feel like doing a retrospective then. In short, I'm somewhat lacking in global optimism just now.
That as may be, things here are going along as normal.
In the coming week is the start of my 6th semester in college.
I hope to make tons of art and plenty of jewelry.
With a new vision for my work, a sharp focus on conceptuality pertaining specifically to antitheism and other social beliefs, I hope you all find this new work interesting.
Many of these pieces will be on display at many venues, including the SNAG conference in New Orleans.
So much art, so little time.

Artist Craig Barnes first saw the Futuro house as a child while visiting family in South Africa. Over the years that followed he revisited it time and time again, dreaming of one day owning such a magnificently odd construction.
