A Classic Quote

A Farting Horse

The Work Horse


I recall hearing this phrase from both of my grandfathers:

A farting horse never tires. A man that farts is the man to hire.

You might not be familiar with this saying, though may enjoy it on a variety of cool items available through my galleries at Society 6, Pixels & Redbubble.

Flashback: Grateful Dead

What A Long Strange Trip

A friend from Cleveland, Ohio, Brian Daley, showed up at my apartment in Holland, Michigan during the summer of 1985, asking if I’d be interested in traveling to Wisconsin to hear the Grateful Dead perform back-to-back shows. After gathering my backpack, we then scoured the town in order to purchase the only remaining original formula Coca Cola available – following the recent change – and hit the road in his Honda Prelude.

Along the way, we must have bumped into at least a dozen people on the road that Brian, a Deadhead, knew from various shows he’d attended. That seemed rather unlikely – what were the odds? – though, less so upon arrival at the venue.

We set up a tent on the edge of a farmer’s field near the concert grounds, purchased tickets and proceeded to the first show, on Friday night. It was an excellent concert, though it took quite a while to exit the amphitheater, afterwards; something was obstructing the door at the top of the hill.

Once finally outside, we saw that a large car (a dark blue, Oldsmobile Delta 88) had parked crosswise, directly in front of the exit. That car belonged to friends of ours – Bernie, Libby & Roger – from Holland, Michigan, who heard that we had gone to the show and took a road trip to join us. Realizing that we would likely be very difficult to locate among the crowd, they decided to be as conspicuous as possible. Indeed!

Sea Monsters

Quietly lurking in the dark ocean waters of a desolate, alien world, two hungry sea monsters scavenge a shallow lagoon in search of a meal.

Inside A Blue Moon

Based On A Fractal


This fun-to-create blue macro digital artwork came into fruition through a series of steps utilizing a fractal generating design software, Adobe Photoshop and Bryce.

After desaturating and formatting the fractal, it was then imported into three dimensional space and extruded to generate a depth in the terrain. Several spheres were positioned accordingly, and the entire scene was placed within a reflective dome. Color, materials and lights were added, as well as magnification…

Laughter Is Good Medicine

CAUTION

What you’re about to see in no way resembles the behavior of a mature adult

I made this film in December 2020 for a woman I liked a lot, but who, at that time – in my opinion – had low self confidence about her appearance. In my eyes, though, she was truly beautiful…

Sadly, remarks such as – I like you very muchI think of you a lotI know that it is a huge feelingI dream about you – etc., ended early.

But, the video remains & has some redeeming value – Phil’s humor 😂 I’m glad that I can laugh at myself & think laughter is good medicine!
