Just when I thought today was going to be a slow news day, I found out that not only is Friday, January 13th National Peach Melba Day AND Rubber Ducky Day

…it's also National Blame Someone Else Day which, of course, means if something goes wrong, we can all just blame this guy…

Yes, you.

On a more serious note, remember that Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Here's his "I have a Dream" speech.

“The problem with a wish list was what it told you about the person who wrote it. If it's honest, it's a rock-bottom, barebones, clear shot all the way to someone's soul. Hats can do the same thing.”

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.
