Showcase of Character Illustrations Inspired by 1930s Cartoons

The art style of early cartoons from the 1920s-1930s era is known as “Rubber Hose”. It refers to the bendy limbs of cartoon characters from Disney and Fleischer Studios, such as Felix the Cat, Betty Boop and early Mickey Mouse (or Steamboat Willie) and their associated antagonists.

Jack routinely donned a yellow polo during final rounds in memory of Craig Smith, the son of a close family friend who passed away in 1971 at the age of 13 from a rar...

Looking for the Light When There’s Darkness

“ There is mud, and there is the lotus that grows out of the mud. We need the mud in order to make the lotus.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh Over the past few years, many of us in the helping professions have noticed an emotional shift that feels like a sense of gloom hanging over much of our universe. Many factors have no doubt contributed to these feelings, such as personal, political, environmental, and global issues. Some people have found themselves harboring a deep sense of darkness or nega...

The aptly-named I Like Scary Movies exhibition is fun not only for people who like horror movies, but for people who like any movies.

But these are movies we’ve all lived with, whether we’ve seen them 100 times or couldn’t make it through a first viewing. There’s something for everyone. Freddy Krueger is well-k...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Plywood

Hear the word “plywood” and you might think of a cheap, maybe even low-quality construction material, used behind the scenes but not sophisticated enough to be seen on the surface. Thankfully, though, plywood is earning its rightful reputation as a durable, versatile, and—yes—good-looking design material, as suitable for furniture and kitchen cabinets as it is for subfloors. “Architects have always been interested in plywood, but it may be more popular with the general public now than it’s ever ...
