Erik also has an interest in all Art Americana, particularly anything related to chickens, like this one, which he drew himself:
Erik’s commitment with this blog is to provide helpful, accurate, and engaging commentary without relying on the legal gobbledygook that many lawyers tend to traffic in. He also plans to offer a lot more useful freebies at his Resources link.
