Orthograph Archives

Ortho-graphs are simple diagrams of the illusions, delusions, pitfalls and manifestations of ego and goofiness in the spiritual life of Orthodox converts, of which I am one. Been there, done that, looked in the mirror and illustrated it.

...And now made it into a book!  Order your copy of "Orthographs - An Un-orthodox Primer on the Spiritual Life for Converts"  100 Orthographs, Curmudgeophan, Magazines and cartoons: CLICK HERE
