Hot Springs National Park Poster

Hot Springs National Park Poster

Burnsland
A travel poster promoting Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas. Earlier, I had made a travel poster for Oʻahu after our 2023 Hawaiʻi Trip. At that time, I also thought about how it would be fun to create posters for some of the places that we visit. When we visited Hot Springs recently, I knew that would be a good poster subject, too. There are several National Park posters out there, but I thought it would be good to add one more.
The Love One Another Logo

The Love One Another Logo

Burnsland
The Love One Another logo lets you quickly know that a Burnsland website post is part of the 2024 theme of Love One Another. Creating the logo was also a bit of fun. I wanted something eye-catching and easy to read. And circular, just because. Circles make the world go round. Because the world is round. I wanted it to communicate “love” besides just having the word “love” on the logo.
Birthday Tiki for 2024

Birthday Tiki for 2024

Burnsland
The Birthday Tiki has come around once again, because someone has a birthday. Hint: it is me. And you probably won’t be able to guess which birthday this is. Or maybe you can. I am a little jealous of the Birthday Tiki, because he is in my favorite place, which is a nice, warm beach. Meanwhile, I am back here at home, although the weather forecast does look to be relatively pleasant, which is a good thing after all the rain we have had this month and the snow from last month.
Favorite Characters: Professor Ratigan

Favorite Characters: Professor Ratigan

Burnsland
Professor Ratigan, the villain from the Disney animated feature The Great Mouse Detective, loves the spotlight as the second in the Favorite Characters series. Every hero needs a villain, or at least that is how it works in the moives. And just as Sherlock Holmes had Professor Moriarty, Holmes’s Great Mouse Detective counterpart, Basil of Baker Street, had Professor Ratigan. So I figured that since I started off the series with the hero, I might as well follow him up with the villain.
Favorite Characters: The Great Mouse Detective

Favorite Characters: The Great Mouse Detective

Burnsland
Basil of Baker Street, the Great Mouse Detective, examines a clue in this first in a series (hopefully) of some of my favorite movie characters. I am old enough to have seen The Great Mouse Detective during its original theatrical run. In fact, I was a teenager at the time. While I had seen some other Disney animated movies in their first run (The Rescuers, The Black Cauldron), as well as others when they were re-released (Snow White, Pinocchio, and probably others), The Great Mouse Detective was the one that I enjoyed the most, at least until later movies were released.
Mobius the Goat Goes Surfing

Mobius the Goat Goes Surfing

Burnsland
Mobius the Goat grabs his surfboard and heads out to the water, hoping to catch a big wave. This is not the first time that Mobius the Goat has been seen with his surfboard. And this is not the only surfing art to be seen here, either. It would appear that I have some regular themes around here. But you probably knew that already. The odd thing about it is that I have never actually been surfing myself.
Burns Family Christmas Card 2023

Burns Family Christmas Card 2023

Burnsland
Each year, we send out a Christmas card to family and friends. Our cards have become a tradition for us, as we enjoy creating them and sending them out, and we like them to be a bit unique. See some of our past cards here. For our 2023 Christmas card, I asked Laura what we should do, as I always do. She is the member of our team with the best, most creative ideas, and pretty much all of our Christmas card ideas have come from her.
2023 Christmas Tree No. 3 and Tiki of the Month

2023 Christmas Tree No. 3 and Tiki of the Month

Burnsland
A Tiki Christmas tree is the latest in two of our series here, the 2023 Christmas trees and the Tiki of the Month. Time was running out, and I could not decide which series I wanted to work on, the Christmas trees or the Tikis. And then I thought, “Why not combine them into one?” After all, a Tiki Christmas tree would be rather unique, which was my goal for the Christmas trees to begin with.
Santa Claus on His Horse

Santa Claus on His Horse

Burnsland
Santa Claus takes off at a gallop on his trusty horse Jingles as he gets ready to deliver presents to your house. Yes, Santa uses his sleigh pulled by the reindeer to deliver presents on Christmas Eve. But as the big day approaches, he rides around the North Pole on Jingles to help Santa get in flying shape. It is just a small part of his training regimen, but Santa definitely enjoys the ride.
2023 Christmas Tree No. 2

2023 Christmas Tree No. 2

Burnsland
A Christmas tree blueprint is the second entry in the 2023 Christmas Tree series. Everyone knows how to make a Christmas tree, right? If not, then here is a handy guide to help you. Although there might not be much information here that you did not already know. And check out those archaic light bulbs? Haven’t those all been replaced by those fancy new energy-saving LED bulbs? But then haven’t blueprints been replaced by newer copies and electronic versions?
