Wow, I dis­ap­peared from the face of the planet for a while… Hope you haven’t for­got­ten about me! Some of you may not know that I re-located to Chicago. It was a needed change, and I hope to grow more in my dis­ci­plines and make broader con­nec­tions here. Thanks to all who helped with my suc­cess in Cham­paign. Greatly appreciated!

I have a new Face­Book page: www.facebook.com/JMBPortfolio

Please pay a visit and like the page, and you will receive up to date infor­ma­tion on new works, in-progress bits, exhibit infor­ma­tion, and other gen­eral mus­ings on your FB feed. Note, you will still see changes here as I rev it up a bit in the city…

Hope every­one had a great hol­i­day sea­son, and Happy New year!
