I still hope to do that, but I’ve got some catching up to do! http://www.tatefoley.com/ As of last night, I’m […]

I haven’t been keeping on a great schedule for these since we returned for our travels. Instead, Blake and I were working hard to finish up our blocks for Cannonball Press (we got them shipped out on Saturday!) Blake’s looks AMAZING.

For weeks now, she has been “patiently waiting” for her portrait as a part of my Facebook Profile Pictures Project. She also requested that I “make her beautiful.” No effort required, Mrs. […]

While visiting Chicago with Mom and Sue, we ate a lot of great food, walked a bunch, and also enjoyed seeing the Field Museum and the Art Institute. I always try to draw when I visit museums and write down any interesting tidbits I come across. Here are a few of my doodles from the […]

First off, congrats to newly-minted-father Jimmy pictured above! Facebook can be a real time suck, and sometimes it gets depressing, but I am always glad to hear of good things happening to friends/acquaintances. It can certainly brighten a morning. And jokes. I always love a good joke. And so it continues, this project I began […]
