"I found the EPIC Cards to be a great resource to ensure that I was incorporating elements of creativity into my classroom. Often, I think that I'm doing things without actually doing them so it's good to have a system that holds you accountable. The most surprising piece to me was how easy and straightforward it was to integrate the cards into my class. The cards are designed in such a way that they flow along with any lesson. EPIC Cards allowed us to begin to create some intentional language around creativity. What it is, what it isn't.... In addition, we were really able to talk about the space that needs to be created to truly explore creativity. On a personal note, as a teacher it forced me to let go of some control in my classroom which is always a good thing:)"

From Experience to Creativity (Book)


 From Experience to Creativity: The experiential educator's incomplete guide to creativity provides an accessible overview of creativity that makes teaching and being creative simple and understandable.  



I've been drawing caricatures for about 15 years at places like Universal Studios in Hollywood, The Stratosphere in Las Vegas, Silverwood Theme Park in Idaho, at parties, events, and all kinds of places. Caricatures are great for parties and they also make wonderful gifts, holiday cards, and logos. Contact me for more information about what I can do for you or your organization.

Corn on the Cob


 This book is not for the faint of heart. It is a compilation of the greatest historical war cartoons ever created by me, Captain Daniel Cape, US Army National Guard, Division Engineer Current Operations Officer In Charge. No really, you probably won't get 80% of the cartoons, but it's still fun to look at and you should totally buy it.
