A Fond Farewell

The NBC series Chuck debuted on September 24th, 2007. I fell in love with the characters and the clever storytelling. Chuck was fun without being overly rude; the emotions were real enough without being melodramatic. Numerous close calls of cancellation were averted by zealous fans, but sadly, Chuck wasn't going to make it past five seasons. Good stories and great people inspire and that's what Chuck Bartowski and his friends have done for me. You've had an amazing journey; thanks for letting me tag along!

Thank You Chuck

Coffee: An Infographic

"Actually, this seems to be the basic need of the human heart in nearly every great crisis - a good hot cup of coffee." -Alexander King

Anyone who knows me will attest to my love for coffee. I started drinking coffee in college. The coffee shop was a great a hangout and wonderful place to sketch. Since, I've developed a mature and discerning taste for the much-loved beverage. To me, coffee is an art, a science, a miracle. Coffee is my wine.

For such a small thing, the coffee bean has a huge impact on our lives and the global economy. Coffee is the #2 most traded commodity on earth behind oil. Why not, it keeps us going! This infographic has been in the works for some time. I wanted to show the coffee journey in graphics to fit a simple yet rich beverage. Enjoy, and remember, friends don't let friends drink bad coffee!
