This is one that hits home.
There is a myriad of reasons as to why I have been unable to post. The most recent phenomenon is the lack of a computer; my laptop kept crashing after only being on for 5 minutes. I am currently using my newly bought Samsung Chromebook while my lovely significant other is building me a PC; we only need one more piece to complete it.
There’s also work; call centers are exhausting. And there’s school; I am taking Stratford Career Institute’s Video Game Design course. I am on the final module, contemplating what I will take next. In addition, I have been working more on my art.
I was recently invited to join Graphicker, which I just built my profile for today. I also recently joined ArtStation and I have been a member of DeviantArt for 4 years, but I just now put my artwork up for sale. I am contemplating starting a Patreon account, but I need to do more research as to what it is.
The point I am trying to make is, despite the distractions, I am back. After I regain access to my files on my laptop, I intend to post photos of my art. In case you’re interested.
Please sign our petition to make texting and driving a primary offense in the state of Florida. Together, we can influence Florida legislation to save more lives and make our roads a safer place for everyone.
On November 7th, 2014, a distracted driver killed my son, Anthony Branca. Anthony was only 19 years old. He was killed because someone else chose to make driving less than important. In an instant, Anthony was gone.
- Distracted driving is the leading cause of death among teenagers (surpassing drunk driving) and the numbers are trending upward.
- Distracted driving crashes made up more than 12 percent of all crashes in Florida in 2015.
- Drivers text-messaging or visibly manipulating handheld devices increased from 1.7% in 2013 to 2.2% in 2014.
Currently, it is only a secondary offense to text & drive in the state of Florida. Meaning, you must be doing something else illegal (like speeding or running a red light) for a law enforcement officer to pull you over for texting & driving.
We need help from our elected officials to enact a primary offense law that prevents senseless road tragedies from occurring to other families.
The Anthony Phoenix Branca Foundation was created in memory of Anthony. We’re starting a revolution to end distracted driving… We’re waging war and building a #BandanaArmy of citizens to help us end distracted driving, #BecauseAnthony. Join the fight, visit our website.
US Climate Heroes: Bypass Trump!
One man could destroy our future in 34 days. Yep, Donald Trump.
He doesn’t even need the nuclear codes — he just needs to keep his promise to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, and have massive polluters like India or Russia follow suit!
But we’ve got a silver bullet: bypass Trump.
New York, California and Google have raised their climate ambitions after Trump’s election — if we get them to build a coalition of US cities, states and businesses to collectively meet the US climate target, the Paris agreement can hold. Let’s send a million voices directly to their doorsteps! Click here!

They’re trying to put a toxic coal complex next to the magical Great Barrier Reef! It’s a crazy plan, but we’ve got a chance to stop it.
The Australian government wants to give $1 billion to build a massive coal complex that could destroy the sea floor home of turtles and tropical fish. But first an independent panel must approve the loan, and they’ve never come under public pressure.
It’s time to make them feel the heat. Let’s put this reef-killing deal in a global spotlight with a million person petition and a massive campaign in the Australian media — add your name.
