American Sweetheart

Isn’t it amazing how the tiniest thing can brighten your day? At this point, its no secret that I’m a Soldier; a proud one at that. Although I love my job (usually) it has begun to take its toll over the years. To date, I still don’t think I’d trade my profession for any other, … Continue reading

Man (or Woman) Behind the Uniform

Man (or Woman) Behind the Uniform

Today while visiting the salon, my belief that “you don’t look like a Soldier!” is the best compliment a woman in my field can receive! Heaven knows I love my job and am extremely proud of the uniform I wear but the military does have a way of stripping you of a large part of … Continue reading

Corny comic book talk aside, there is something pretty interesting afoot in the world of digital comics. Needless to say, Batman is involved! Yay! Author and illustrator Dustin Nguyen has taken … Continue reading

‘Storm’ the Art Gallery

I love when people find ways to put a fun and creative spins on famous works of art. With all due respect to the original creator, once an image has been seen hundreds of times (in my opinion) it sort of loses it’s wow factor and draw. It is then when kids start to dread … Continue reading

Funny Money

I know this is super nerdy and probably sort of lame, but on the rare occasions I use cash and receive change I love getting dollar bills that have little stamps and faces and shit on them. It’s like that little piece of paper has personality unlike its billions of siblings. Personally though I’ve never drawn … Continue reading

After the destruction of one of his famous works of art in Australia, it seems like famed artist Banksy has been keeping himself busy with a few new projects. Recently, he debuted a series of moderately conventional paintings as well as by sticking true to his “the world is my canvas” attitude with a few … Continue reading
