There’s a bakery in the same building as my eye doctor’s downtown office. I made a lot of trips to his office last year. Dick drove me. Then on the walk down from the eye doctor’s office to the parking ramp I often suggested a stop at the bakery to buy some “life-drawing” models. Don’t […]
A week ago, a couple weeks ago(?) Covid-19 took out the grand finale of Ink Master 2020. In the grand scheme of things, and with so many lives lost, it’s a small thing. But still a disappointment for the three finalists who won’t get to battle it out and find out who is “Ink Master.” […]
In the current Pandemic it seems everyone is baking bread. Less than 11 months ago I was thinking about all the bread baking I wanted to do. Dick actually came home with a list of the flours available at the local co-op. I don’t have much kitchen space though, so I put it off. […]

I think this page spread text pretty much says it all. (From my cataract recuperation journals.) What are television shows telling us about their historical time periods? This one is pretty obvious.
If you’ve got some free moments, sit and draw as fast as you can. I no longer have close vision so it’s fun just to try and capture things on the page without glasses. Distance vision for me is crisper but also blurred. I was probably watching Project Runway or some fashion movie last year […]
Last week I wrote the following blog post to my Patreon-RozInterim subscribers. When I started my subscription blog on Patreon I had no intentions to share any of the posts from that blog with a larger audience.
