The Debatables (Chapter One)

I am planning on releasing the chapters to my first novel, The Debatables, as I edit them (which means whenever I manage to get some free time). There are 31 chapters so this may take awhile.  My motivation to release the novel came as I watched the Occupy Wall Street protests and started to reminisce on my days at Chico filled with exploration, protests,  and a strong desire to change the world. I then remembered I had a novel about those times and decided to polish it up and bit. I wrote this novel while attending Chico State and it is a humorous journey through college life at Chico State University in the late-Eighties.  Society seemed at disarray, the future seemed troublesome and the desire for fun was paramount. Join Mart as he explores the wild world of Chico at its prime.

Signs I Like

If you ever visit San Francisco make sure to see the  San Francisco Botanical Garden in Golden Gate park.  It has countless clever and subtly humorous signs through out the park.  Below are two examples.   Both has a simple yet explicit design,  can be understood by a variety of cultures and bring a smile to my face.  The bare foot about to step on the delicate flower has an expressive upturned toe and the bee wearing headphones is cooler than ninety percent of the t-shirts I see while strolling down Valencia Street.
