Tribute to Jackie, my wife...and her love of toe socks


Just so everyone is clear on this subject, this was Jackie's idea.  She wanted her own meme really bad and we came up with this one.  It's based on a true story:  Jackie really does love hideous toe socks.

YOLO makes ghosts sad

Lars in America

You probably remember the original "Lars the Disgruntled Lego" which I did for an assignment for my 3D animation class at BYU.  I had always intended to put some sound effects on just to make it a little more polished, but when I set out to do that yesterday, it kind of billowed into a mini-short-film.

It may not be apparent to most people what Lars has to do with Denmark, but that's just a reference to the fact that Lego is a Danish company so all minifigures are obviously Danish.

I hope you enjoy!

Skyline Drive


On Saturday my family and I went on a lovely (and slightly harrowing) drive through Manti-La Sal National Forest on Skyline Drive.  We got up there and we were inside a cloud most of the time so we couldn't see a whole lot until we came down the other side and saw the screaming-yellow aspens against the blueish green pines.  It was a lot of fun.  If you ever have a chance to drive any scenic byways, do it.

Doug the Dinosaur (rough for header)


Story time!

So when I was but a lad, I was obsessed with watching my Dad draw things.  I couldn't sit still in church unless my Dad was drawing something for me.  I think he got tired of it so he would draw the most gnarly, snaggle-toothed dinosaurs (my favorite thing back then) and I never got tired of it.

One day my Dad got tired of drawing for me constantly and said "why don't you do it?"  So I did. From then on I drew my own drawings and haven't stopped since.

So thanks Dad, I owe you!
