Adventures on the Road

Art and Storytelling in St. Louis

Art that's personal As a general rule we don’t celebrate most holidays and birthdays. However, Dez passed a mile marker in age this last fall, and we found the perfect way to experience their birthday without all the fanfare. We found out about this artist who put...

On the Road: Dallas to Topeka

Recently we traveled to Dallas, Texas for a conference, and a well-needed vacation. It was a great trip, and while I brought along the camera, I didn’t really record anything until we were heading home. For me it was about the experience, being with people I hadn’t seen in quite awhile, and meeting new people.

Random RV Sightings on LA Trip

Long before we met, both of us held the dream of living on the road -- buying an RV and traveling from place to place.  Now, whenever we're on a road trip, we look at the RVs we pass on the highway or see parked at rest areas and truck stops.  We make note of where...

Follow Us on the Road

As nomads, we're not bound to one place. In fact, we're heading out on an adventure tomorrow to attend some events in LA and hang out in Costa Mesa/Huntington Beach. Likewise, our web presence isn't limited to just this site. Art is a big broad, subject, and as two...

Albuquerque, NM

October 2018

New Mexico is one of our home states.  It had been two years since we’d seen it, so as soon as we crossed the border, we pulled over a roadside stop to stretch and enjoy the elevation and take a deep breath.

This trip focused on the ABQ Zine Fest, including a special cooking demo by Johnnie. We stayed with friends, ate yummy vegan food, and wandered around the city a bit.

St. Louis, MO

September 2018

A new city for both of us to explore!  This trip was a quick overnight to attend a special gallery event and celebrate Dez’s birthday.

We crammed in as much food and art as we could – including tracking down vegan ice cream, and spent a meaningful evening at the storytelling event commemorating the publication of To Survive on This Shore, where Johnnie shared his own story.

Denver, CO

June 2018

We try to get to Denver once a year. It’s one of our favorite cities with good vegan food, close friends, and a cool art scene.

In June 2018 we were there to participate in the Denver Zine Fest. However, we still managed to spend time with friends, wander around the city, and eat at some of our favorite spots. Plus, spending a day surrounded by zinesters!
