I wonder if it's simple coincidence that the robin's orange breast resembles a basketball. :) I guess it doesn't really matter – my bracket's shot either way.

The NCAA tourney always reminds me of James "Jimmy V" Valvano and the wonderful speech he gave just before he passed away in 1993. It's worth a listen.

Anyway, I'm watching a lot of basketball and making Easter eggs…

"To me there are three things everyone should do every day. Number one is laugh. Number two is think – spend some time in thought. Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears. If you laugh, think and cry, that's a heck of a day."

Google picks a winner of the 2015 "Doodle 4 Google" contest. So, what's it like to be a Google Doodler, anyway? It's like this, and this, and this. Here's how the idea for doodles originated. The Google Doodle team has created thousands of doodles – here's the complete archive. • Britain's Natural Environment Research Council's attempt to crowdsource the naming of their new £200 million polar research vessel has yielded three top contenders: 3rd place: The RRS David Attenborough; 2nd place: The RRS Henry Worsley; and 1st place: The RRS Boaty McBoatface. (Oh, internet.) • Well, what do you know - there really is such a thing as a RabbitFish.
"I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, 'Of course not.' I said, 'Well, I think you stink.' And he gave me a technical. You can't trust 'em."

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. I’m an artist, author, husband and father.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
