"As the frontrunner of the new forest industry, UPM leads the integration of bio and forest industries into a new, sustainable and innovation-driven future. Our products are made of renewable raw materials and are recyclable."

UPM, an environmentally conscious logging company, runs a great interactive site explaining their forestry practices. Anyone interested in Biodiversity, sustainable forestry, wildlife, or nature in general should check out their Forest Life mini site. Now if only this type of eco responsibility would take hold here in the states something might be done about the environmental crisis the world faces today.

Odds and Ends

A sampling of miscellaneous pictures I have taken in the past year.

(Sharpen 'em yourself)


One of two pieces I made today. The shapes were taken from a dream. I call the piece 'Bottle Tree'.

Steve Earle

(It's a swagger portrait for sure)

Seeing as today is an important day in American history, I decided to post about one of the greatest American songwriters ever to live. I am of course talking about Steve Earle. He's got a new album and book out, check them both out, very worth it. Also read this excellent article in the aptly named American Songwriter Magazine all about Steve.
