  • So, you know from Part 1 of this series that I’ve been dying to start a new creative project, but haven’t wanted to start anything new that would take me away from my daughter at this juncture in her life. Probably you can all see where this is going, but if you don’t, I’d love to help you out with an official announcement:

    The Next Thing Part 4: The Announcement
  • This is a legal notice regarding the rights I claim over any and all work I have done for Kathryn Kalisz, and Sci\ART llc., and what is available for public use and reprint.

  • One day, while my daughter and I were home sick from work and school, we worked together on a board game she had started working on earlier in the week. Six hours, several cups of tea, a couple bowls of soup, a handful of cough drops, and many of my art supplies later, we had a working prototype for her idea.

    The Next Thing Part 3: Its All Just Fun-n-Games
  • My daughter has been making games for as long as I can remember. We’re closing in on some cool ideas.

  • I am, and always will be at least in some part, a Kubie. Of all of the schools I have spent time in, I’ve only ever called myself a Kubie. Thank you, Joe, for giving me a place to learn what I wanted to know, to explore my art with teachers
    who were as excited as I was with the art and creation of comics. Your work has not only touched millions, but lives on every single day as the students who passed thru your school work, create and share their art with those around them. Thank you for going the extra mile and giving us a place to call our own.

Color Theory: Why Hots Advance & Cools Recede

If you’ve had any classes or done any reading on basic color theory, you’ve no doubt came across the concept that hot colors (red, orange and yellow) ‘advance’, or appear to move forward, while cool colors (purple, green, and blue) recede, or fall back. If you’ve played with colors in your work, you’ve probably noticed […]
