'Eyes are the gateway to the soul — for onlookers anyway. For the owner of the soul, hands are the gateway, thrust forth to seize the soul's desires. Look at a diagram of the human body: you'll see that red lines take root in the chest and spread out through the fingertips like rays of light shooting out of either Madonna. Despite scientific inaccuracy, it's nice to imagine that there are veins/arteries acting solely as the string of a tin-can telephone between your heart's instincts and your hands' can-do attitude. While the heart means well, it can get clouded by the brain, but when hands are doing what they do best, nothing stands in your way.
In matters of creativity and love, you really can’t get much better than hands. They reach into the heart, yank out what you really feel, and bring a feeling from deep down inside out onto the page, or the computer, or the pottery wheel as Patrick Swayze sits behind you, helping you with your wheel throwing, forming the third point of the best kind of love triangle. That’s how humans got dancing, sex and this Elvis lyric: “Take my hand / Take my whole life too / For I can’t help falling in love with you.”’

WILD CARDS 01

We all get in creative ruts; it comes as part of the territory if you’re a creative of any sort, regardless of your field. Over the years, I’ve seen people go through streaks of pushing themselves to make “something” once a day, no matter the media or the quality. I’ve never been prolific when it comes to creating for the sake of “Screw it, I’m just going to make something fun.” So, in true “screw it” fashion, I’ve decided to try to start making these “somethings” on as-daily-as-can-be basis. This is going to be goofy as hell. Here’s the first batch of wild cards.
