Tina confesses to not being a chessplayer, but her creativity could not resist taking a stab at it. I’m not part of any chess community and I don’t really play chess. But I created something very much related to chess about a year ago and I have not yet exposed this to the public in any way, shape, or form. I think it’s creative and I’m not quite sure what to do with it –  so here I am contacting you. What do you think?”  Tina calls this CHECKMATE:




WOW!  I love it, Tina!  You have perfectly captured the more carnal, primordial aspects in human nature–and especially the bona fide warrior’s spirit–necessary in every serious chessplayer: to be driven, unforgiving, relentless, coldblooded. Calculating. Composed. A dash of sophistication…BRAVO, Tina!!
