Santa Barbara, Ca

I'm a full-time rambler and contract designer with as many skill sets in my quiver as there are plane tickets in my passbook. I've worked in ornamental iron, jigsaw puzzle design, bookmaking, glass engraving, and a variety of other mediums. I'm currently living out of a backpack as I trek my way around the world.


Giveaway: Gas Cards! Get Your Gas Cards!

Cars get thirsty, too

Cars get thirsty, too

It's Sparkpunk's three-week anniversary, and like any newly-minted teenage couple, I'm celebrating the occasion with unnecessary gifts and over-the-top pronouncements.


I'm giving away two $50 Shell gas cards for all you commuters and road-trip enthusiasts. Now, it's no secret that I think overland travel is the way to go, and I've even featured the first half of a two-part series on the different styles of road trip. And to remind you all that travel is as close as the next town away, I'd like to sponsor your next tank of gas to get you there…if you win, that is.


Think really hard about where you'd love to drive and see. Is it a particular landmark or city, or are you just along for the ride? Have that answer at ready for the next part…


There are two ways you can enter, and yes, you can enter using each method:


The giveaway is open to U.S. & Canada residents only. This giveaway ends Friday, April 20, 2012 at 5:00pm Pacific Time. One winner from Twitter will be randomly selected via RowFeeder (which monitors "#sparkpunk" tags), and the other winner from Facebook will be randomly selected by name-in-a-hat technology (the tag monitor game isn't as developed on Facebook because of privacy restrictions, so I have to resort to more analog methods). The winners will be announced on Monday, April 23, 2012 at 7:00am Pacific Time.

On your marks…get set…Glow!

Hah! I said "glow," not "go." I false-started your ass. Get back to the line.
