The 80’s were a wonderful time in Syracuse NY. I left with an art degree and high hopes. Some would say that I must have been high to graduate with an art degree and think there was any hope.

Here we are, many greeting cards, illustrations, and children’s books later. On the wrong end of 44, I found that I get a great deal of satisfaction from blogging – usually about power pop music and The Flashcubes (Syracuse’s brightest stars). The time seemed right to share my interests and experiences with others of similar mind. Hey, I’ve suffered for my art. Now it’s your turn.
