Great friend, artist, and mentor, Ken Botan, guides me through the process of purchasing my first computer.

In 2008, invited to teach digital art at the annual Hot Art Colony at Tougaloo College, in Jackson, Mississippi, I created Digital Dreams - How Do I Get There From Here? for the weeklong indulgence in the visual arts.
Invited back in 2010, I continued with Digital Dreams - The Layers.
Tougaloo College's name is a Choctaw word that means where two streams cross.
In the case of Tougaloo, it's the Pearl River and the Mississippi.
