Objectively, of course, Dvorak is a better system. It makes more sense and it’s easier to use. But QWERTY doesn’t fight fair. Its power is that it’s ubiquitous, so Dvorak never gets a chance to prove itself. Dvorak wins in an honest contest, but the world isn’t a meritocracy, even when it comes to keyboard configurations. I’ve learned Dvorak, but I use QWERTY.

Then I added a peacock design, which I call “Vanity Has a Thousand Eyes.” That one took about 5 months. I gave up on it a couple times bu…

My Nephew Goes Wading

This design took forever! Mostly because I kept thinking I couldn’t do it. And admittedly, I still don’t think it’s perfect. It seems to me that the boy’s joy is not as pronounced as it was in the model. Still, I need to respect my own painting abilities. / The source image is actually the same photograph used for My Sister and Brother-in-Law Look to the Future . It was a …
