2005

I got sick after Burning Man 2004--some mystery virus. Worse yet, the World Dream Bank got sick! The site stayed up and running, but froze. Couldn't change a thing! Now, in summer 2005, I've finally started to recover, and after a full day on the phone with the Godaddy.com, they FINALLY caught the glitch! The Dreambank can start adding entries again. Folks have been submitting dreams and art, so expect guest authors next year, starting with Lesa's THE STROKE.

I've expanded my planetology project--building plausible alien worlds with dozens of intelligent species. See Planetocopia for the latest. And later this year, expect some new sculptures too, as well as added illustrations to previous dreams. I'll be adding some dreams of my own again (still drawing illustrations), but not too many--I want to open the Dreambank up to others. Add a dream!
