‘Pencils and Process’ Book is Out Now

It feels weird to say this, but I finished writing a book…and it’s actually published and available now! The book is called Pencils and Process, and it’s available via Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It may be coming to some other retailers like Books-a-Million too, but I’m not sure when. For the non-Amazon angle, I’m using Ingram as my distributor

Custom Portrait Giveaway Winner

The second Amdall Gallery giveaway officially came to an end Tuesday night. There was only one prize this time – a custom portrait of the winner’s choice. I was surprised by how many entries we got with the first contest, but I was certain the second giveaway would have less. The reason? Well, the first involved a small cash prize,

Custom Portrait Giveaway

In this poll asking if anyone would be interested in a giveaway if it only involved a custom portrait, four respondents (100%) said yes! So, in a contest that doesn’t involve any cash prize, at least four people might enter – that works for me. That being said, let me welcome you to the second giveaway ever hosted by Amdall

Totinos Pizza and Chili

I’m a grown adult, rapidly approaching 40 years old. I’ve got children, a mortgage, probably a bunch of other stuff that might suggest a mature individual with grown-up tastes. Well, I think most people who know me might laugh at the “grown-up tastes” portion of that statement. I can find no more definitive evidence of that than my life-long love

Matching Men’s Coat and Pants

Alright, I admit that this is probably embarrassing and sad…I have difficulty making good fashionable choices. Especially when we start talking about branching out to different colors, matching clothes, and all that. Honestly, if I could get away with it, I’d just wear khaki shorts and a black t-shirt every day at home, and gray slacks with a light blue
