The Infernal Device

Posted on April 4, 2011 at 1:30am 0 Comments

The new site for the Infernal Machine is up.


For those who do not know, The Infernal Machine is the collaborative project by myself, Steve Brook, and Todd Cahill.


It will be a huge automated mechanical steam and wind powered sculpture mixed with 2-d painting, and will be unveiled at this year's Artprize competition in Grand Rapids, MI.


And like last year's artPrize, I will be trying to organize more steampunk happenings during this three week…

Is it Christmas? Nope.. not yet.


There are a lot of holidays coming up though... for those unaware, even those who choose to be.


For instance, we are part way through Saturnalia, and the Winter Solstice is upon us... an extra-special one with a palindromic date (12-21) *and* a lunar eclipse (at least for those of us around here)... and a happy Yule to all who celebrate it and live on this side of the…

Over a year ago, Bethalynne and I came to this state with an emergency to take care of: The "curator" or acting denizen of Bethalynne's former apartment had moved back in with his mother, several states away, leaving an "unoccupied" place filled knee-high with cat feces and urine, mixed with pizza boxes, pop bottles, candy wrappers, cigarette butts, old clothes... and over 20-some cats... some living, some not.

Underneath were things like old furniture, now hundreds of pounds heavier… Continue

Holiday Recap

Posted on December 29, 2009 at 2:11pm 0 Comments

Bethalynne and I spent the holidays in Cincinnati Ohio, where my brothers live.

There, we met up with my parents (in from Missouri), and between family visits tried to get in some time with friends from the area.

Thursday night, we rested. It was a long drive, and a long two weeks of preparation went into it.

Friday night was spent with my younger brother Jeremy, his incredibly talented wife, Liz Amend, their two wonderful children, and my parents. The night was… Continue

Thanks! We really appreciate it. Thanks for the compliments on the design, too. Spring Shoe Productions is a name I've used for most graphic design projects I've done over the years.
