As an artist, one is always encouraged to join the "Social Media" stampede. I tend to be more of a hernmit in that regard as I just don't think I have that much to say.
At any rate, I'll attempt to follow the advice of my advisors and contribute more to Twitter and Facebook in 2012.
With that in mind, I wanted an artistic icon for Twitter that would not only reflect the Twitter icon, but also add my own flair as a welder and artist. I had my friend Chris Mauk of http://www.chrismauck.com/ design this icon for me. It just cracks me up! It is just whimsical enough to reflect the work I do. I will link it to my account in the next day or so here on this site.
