This makes up my current EDC. I’ve made upgrades to my Port Wallet with world famous Horween reversed Shell Cordovan leather, so that the Genuine Horween Shell Cordovan stamp is visible from the outside. I also prefer the feel of the inside of this leather, over the glossy outer finish. I’ve also recently picked up a bronze Helberg CH6 watch that looks just fantastic with the patina and antiquing done with some Liver of Sulfer. I went straight to work building a Horween Shell Cordovan leather strap and dying it in a custom olive green oil dye that I mixed up. The green and bronze go together great. The Warby Parker sunnies are also a new addition, and were a great barter that I traded for my leather goods. Solid build on them, and I’m enjoying them.


A little too fast out of the gate to reach my goal (13 miles). Had to knock it back a little bit at mile 7 and called it at mile 9.

I’m sweating like hell here (still not used to the humidity and the heat). Give it a couple more weeks and I should be ok. I probably need to adjust my fuel plan a little considering the environment.

Bottom: thats the majority of the damage from spilling the bike on Monday. It’s actually not as bad as it looks. A little tender still but I only have a problem when I’m laying on it or if my wallet digs into it.

Hey y’all! First off, I’m really sorry I haven’t been able to post like I used to. It totally bums me out, but I promise I’m working on some new stuff!

Anyway, I’ve hit a kind of financial roadblock. When I open my wallet it does that thing in cartoons where moths fly out. Every time. It’s horrifying. Where did the moths come from? Why have they chosen me?

ANYWAYS, if I opened a few commission slots, would anyone here be down?

so close yet so far away…. once I get this is a long drive for someone with nothing to think about, good news for people who love bad news and no one’s first and you’re next I’ll give my wallet a break….

SO! My tablet bit the bullet right in the middle of this lovely piece. So I won’t be posting art until I get a new one. Though I might open commissions afterwards, to help fill the dent in my wallet. If you have any asks for me, or about my characters, or maybe even customization requests, send them over!

i made my own song, it's a mix of dana crying, brody screaming in pain when he's stabbed in the hand, and police sirens. been listening to it 24/7. i've lost 10 pounds, 3 of which are in tears. i've also lost my wallet and my keys. are you interested?

"That's so generous, you must be a follow of Jesus Christ too"

So there I was about 20 minutes ago at a gas station filling up my car. I’m not really paying much attention, and this middle aged guy comes up to me and tells a long story about having hard times and him not having enough money to get his family home. As he was talking, I looked through my wallet and grabbed a few bucks for him, and when I handed to him he was really grateful. He walked off back to his car.

I sat there thinking about how I definitely COULD have afforded to give the guy a $20 instead, and that really he needed it more than I did. When I looked over at him, he was talking to his wife and 3 kids in the back seat, and they were looking at me smiling. How could I not help this family more?

I head over to his pump, explain that I could afford to give more, and hand him a $20. He’s very grateful, but starts telling me that I’m doing the lords work and that I was “so generous he was sure I was a follower of Jesus Christ sent here to help him”. I responded politely and told him that I was actually an Atheist (because you know, we’re just as generous as Christians), but that I hoped he could get home alright and that his new job worked out for him.

I turned around to leave, and he started preaching to me…telling me about how I’d be happier and better off if I had Jesus in my life, and went on to preach to me. I pretty quickly interrupted him and explained that I had somewhere to be and wished him and his family well.

I imagine that after I left, he told his kids how great god is for working miracles and they probably all gave thanks to god for it. God didn’t do shit, I gave you the money, not him. It just annoys me that I was probably just used to teach kids a lesson about how “God works miracles when we truly need him”, not to mention the fact that I “must have been a Christian” since everyone knows atheists are greedy evil slime bags who would never give money to help people.
