In case you were wondering how I went about creating my poker game, I’ve written a complete tutorial
on another simple card game, blackjack
You can read through it here
and there’s a zip file to download that contains the files used and a small run-able example.
Any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to let me know and If you make something cool be sure and let me know.
As mentioned , I’ve been playing around with programing this summer and completed one project, still got a couple of others I’m working on. Anyway, the one I finished is a simple card game I wrote in C# using visual studio for windows pc’s. Requires .net 4.0. I’ve tested it on windows 7, 8.1 and 10 and seems to work fine let me know if you enjoy it or run into any problems running it.
Since this is my first windows program any feedback is appreciated and I expect there will be some problems, but hopefully nothing major.
The cards are all custom, original designs I created.
So I admit it, I enjoy browsing through the stats on my blog trying to see where folks have come from when they stumble onto my little corner of the internet. I have to say though that the search terms that lead people here sometimes baffle me. Here’s a few recent search terms:
yellow baja bug
haunted castle halloween
jenny springs florida cave
eagle photographer attacked
map of captain nemo’s voyage
images spooky tower
sea caves pirate
auburn photo locations
dawn center indian falls apple picking
cactus v4 triggers and couple
trail driving with baja bug
what snakes are on isla holbox, mexico
pictures of captain nemos cabin
captain nemo’s prague
pictures of posey cave blountsville alabama
bow and arrow grass caving
back door cave channel islands
birds mono lake
captain nemo’s log
bird in mono lake
captain nemos mexico
captain nemo information
captain nemo’s house in morro bay, ca.
Now going through them most are quite obvious: i.e.
Yellow Baja Bug
Haunted Castle Halloween
Some though were less then obvious, I have no pictures of “posey cave blountsville alabama ” however I did post on Cavechat shortly after this post “http://www.forums.caves.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16773&sid=205ec90499230fa359cb762ceba009fd” So I assume that’s how the search engine came to the conclusion I might have.
I have no idea what “bow and arrow grass caving” might be referring to and my attempts to follow this search back to my webpage proved fruitless so perhaps that was one of those strange coincidences that led them there?
“Tortoise log”? that’s a strange term but I assume the search engine found my pics of traveling on the “Green Tortoise bus” and combined the fact that I wrote about it in my Log.
most of the rest of them are pretty straight forward so I’ll just leave you with this

Fabric, charcoal drawing
Last semester at Bakersfield College I was told a class in the arts was necessary before transferring to Cal State. I happily enrolled in Drawing 101 and enjoyed it immensely. The teacher chose to have us work almost exclusively with charcoal, a medium I had not previously used. I found the shades, tonal range and ease of use to be pretty good.

Ears are deceptively difficult to draw!

Portrait of a caver
At last a little bit of color!
My final project- Game over man!
I really enjoyed the course and intend to continue drawing with charcoal- I’ve got a new project on my desk right now 🙂
I’ve started a new blog to repost some of my old cartoons (and maybe some new ones) about working offshore as a commercial diver:
