Chris and Nala

After years of thinking about it I picked up a Wacom Cintiq tablet. I ended up choosing the Cintiq 13 HD. Here’s a quick test doodle…

Sublime Text

I recently switched from Eclipse to Sublime Text and couldn’t be happier with my decision. The Split Editing, GoTo Anything and Distraction Free Mode features alone are saving me time and improving my focus. I should also mention that it’s very fast. At present I am working on a JavaScript/jQuery/ColdFusion/Coldbox project and was able to add a ColdFusion Package for Sublime Text with a few Terminal commands.

My Brief And Not Very Informative Review Of “The Lego Movie”

The Lego Movie is well written and beautifully animated. And it has Unikitty and Batman in Cloud Cuckoo Land. Go see it.

Just Do It

I had the honor of playing Just Dance 2 with Bella today. As I was moving and shaking to the mostly terrible pop songs it dawned on me that I have much weight to dance off. Some of the excess can be attributed to holiday consumption, most however can be blamed on a mix of overindulgence and lack of exercise.  Rather than formulate an elaborate plan for losing weight I’m going to take a simpler approach in which I am present, mindful and moving.

Changing Focus

After several years of offering photographic services I have decided to hang up my camera until further notice.   Additionally I am reclaiming this space for use as a personal blog. This includes sharing some of my work. I’m a software developer and happen to love what I do. I also happen to believe that sharing solutions to problems can help others who are facing the same problems.

Biographical Nomenclature

I live in Brunswick, Maryland, a wonderful community filled with artists, gamers and freaky folk of many different stripes. I have a son, who at times lives with me when he isn’t in Sydney Australia with his mother. I am a mild-mannered lead software developer by day. I enjoy making art, switching gears between illustration, photography and music as the mood hits me. I’ll be sharing some of my work on this site. I’m also spending some of my free time developing Morning Madness, a family-friendly card game.

Hire Doug

If you have come here in search of a wedding photographer then you should hire Doug Pettway. If you are smart and lucky enough to secure his services your images will be amazing.

May you be well, peaceful and happy!
