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:
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.
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

Thank you for going the extra mile and giving us a place to call our own.
For anyone who’s been keeping score, its been almost two and a half years since life around here got so heavy that I dropped almost completely from the web-o-sphere, and a year and a half since I wrote my blog post saying that it might be some time longer before I could start anything new.
Since then, I’ve knowingly taken note of other online presences who have disappeared from time to…
So, haven’t been here or there much lately, and decided it was time to do a bit of cleaning, fixing, etc. In the process of updating the templates, I wiped out the images that used to adorn this site and the main CI site… so, enjoy the flowers, mountains or whatever happens to pop up here while I work on coming up with new art.
The romantic storyteller will tell you that its because inspiration can strike anytime, and the napkin was the only thing available. However, the real reason is because they had a great idea that they didn’t want to lose and they didn’t have a sketchbook or notebook handy.
The fact is, the more creative your team is, the more they will thrive on answers that start with “yes, if…”
Me and Mine
I’m a 40 year old married father with a number of interests and hobbies and a bad habit of starting little side projects whether I have time for them or not. When push comes to shove however, spending time with my family and making sure they are taken care of is my number one concern. This responsibility is at the core of many decisions I’ve made thru the years and w…
