Ask me anything   Well folks...here I am. Chad is the name.

I have started a tumblr to have a place to hoard cool pictures from the internet, share stories that inspire me, and to explore what inspires others. I live in Denver Colorado, and my primary interests are urban sustainability, particularly in regards to food, bulldogs, beautiful bottom boys, queers, architecture, design, plants (especially orchids), gardening, friendship, love,beer, and the envisioning of a better world. Oh and I'm a half Buddhist allergic to meditating, and in love with it.

Featured Artist #6: Mark A. Facey

Creature Journal is the Tumblr website of the artist Mark A. Facey and was, in fact, the inspiration for me to create this Tumblr.

His beautifully coloured drawings are a mix of fantasy and science fiction and come always accompanied by descriptions of the amazing creatures he paints.

Mark has recently published a PDF book with more than 52 illustrations, many of them you can see in this photoset, with amazingly high-resolution. The most amazing though is that it is selling for only $2! I’ve got mine and I don’t regret. You can buy it directly from his website or through this link:
