Changing Gmail’s auto-complete text

Unlike my cell phone, I don’t like auto-complete features in my email. If you’ve upgraded to Gmail’s new version you may find this “feature”  annoying. Here’s how to turn this off.

Go to settings. Look for the gear icon in the top right hand corner to get here.

Under the general tab, scroll down to Smart Compose and turn off.


2018 is Here

An Inktober drawing
Sketch from Inktober 2017

I’ve neglected this site.  One of my goals this year is to spend more time making art and sharing it with people.  I’m excited to see myself move forward and I know sharing work will be a major part of that.

Update: Moving towards this goal, I started a sketchblog on instagram in January, and in June I’ll be taking a design class at local artschool, Talent tree.

“The people who make the movies are scared of silence” he said, “so they want to paper and plaster it over,” he said…What really matters is the underlying emotions–that you never let go of those.

Reading the Words of Miyazaki is always inspiring and revealing. His ways of filling the screen with such lush visual variety yet giving his characters so many quiet moments are astounding. Robert Ebert comments on these moments in his review of
Spirited Away. It’s a great read.

Update: I need to add this amazing video tribute to Miazaki and his films:
