Well, as usual, I'm a day (or three) behind the curve. This past Tuesday, September 6th, was National Read a Book Day. In the future, I'll try to post special dates *before* they happen. Oh, well – I guess we can all just go ahead and read a book anyway; no harm done, right?

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.
