A Woman's Guide to Low Self-Esteem
Part personal essay, part pop culture historical dive, this book takes women on a dive into the laugh-until-you-cry trenches of the outrageous world of forgotten advertising. With over 170 vintage ads, photos, and illustrations, this book provides the "smoking gun" as to how women's advertising has messed with their minds for over 100 years. Ladies, do your self-esteem a favor and read this book!
The Musical Touch of Leonard Nimoy
Nominated for the 2020 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research.
He’s groovy! He’s sexy! He’s a hit with all the kids! Who’s that? Paul McCartney? Davy Jones? NO! it’s Mr. Spock - WAIT! It’s Leonard Nimoy! The two are inseparable and both are cultural icons. This book captures the moment in time in the far out 60s when Leonard Nimoy was signed to a five album record deal for Dot Records, signed a universe of autographs, and toured the country to promote his singing career to throngs of adoring fans.

A MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHOR
I made this book because of my love of classic arcade games of the 80s. There is something joyful in those little jagged edges and square circles moving around the screen. They have an innocence and are loaded with personality and often humor. When writing and illustrating 8-bit Kingdom, I strove to bring this personality and humor to each page – with pixels!
I made the art board 160 x 160 pixels in order to preserve that classic arcade feel. It’s impressive just how much character and emotion can be expressed in even the smallest pixel art image. A great amount of information can be delivered just a few pixels. Thirty pixels can depict a heroic fighter or cowardly person. It all depends upon the exact placement of the pixels. A pixel placed high - the character is happy, a pixel placed low - the character is angry. The idea of simple pixel art is actually an oxymoron. It can can be quite a challenge placing the correct pixel in the correct location to achieve the correct effect.
So, welcome to 8-bit Kingdom! A collection of tales that blend retro gaming, personal computing, and fantasy role-playing all fully illustrated in classic 8-bit pixel art! I hope you enjoy reading it (and maybe even coloring it) as much as I enjoyed writing and illustrating it.
