Hello! The wonderful thing about having a website is that anybody can drop in at any time. I don't know how you got here - but thanks for coming. What you'll find on this site (and nowhere else in the known Universe) is a vast archive of original thoughts, each one expressed in 17 words or less, each with its own illustration, and all created by one person, namely yours truly. Known as "Pot-Shots" or "Brilliant Thoughts," these little expressions are designed to pack a punch, which I hope may hit you in your heart, brain, or funny bone - or perhaps all three.


   This has been a massive project, taking close to 40 years of my life. I won't pretend that it was a well-organized endeavor, or that it's really complete even now. But at this point I can present you with 10,000 illustrated epigrams, all cataloged and available as a data base on a CD, as well as in other catalog forms.

  There are many other ways you can enjoy and use these creations - including books, postcards, and a variety of other products, all of which you can purchase here. Electronically, you can use them to spice up your emails, enrich your web pages, or brighten your Powerpoint presentations. (No charge if you buy the CD and your usage is non-commercial. Otherwise please ask me about a license.)

   I'm proud of this website, because in every sense I made it myself. Of course it has many imperfections, but as far as I know, everything works. You can place an order with my small company as safely as with any gigantic firm - and you'll probably receive it sooner.

  But this isn't only about doing business. I hope you'll be interested in reading some of my writings and sharing at least a little of my personal life. I want you to enjoy your visit so much that you'll come back, and tell other people. In the meantime, if you let me know you were here, I'll add you to my list of email friends.

All the best,
Ashleigh Brilliant
