A few weeks ago, a girl was searching online for a case for her iPhone. She saw my Chickadee post, colorized the original drawing, and asked if I would be ok if she used it to create a custom iPhone case (through www.getuncommon.com). I was more than happy to let her use the design and she was kind enough to send a photo of the final product:
I recently recovered these two gems from a box of saved drawings. I distinctly remember being incredibly frustrated painting this chickadee because the only brush I had was caked in dried paint. Now, however, I quite like the effect.
This second image was from a high school project called “7 Ways”. We were to choose a subject and represent it in 7 different media, coming up with a final consolidated project. I choose corn and designed a book made from hand-made paper out of corn husks (a smelly job I don’t care to repeat). Each page held a different representation of corn through photography, pen & ink, pastels, pencil, painting, and finally print making. This print is all that remains of the project.
It’s a good year for roses. The peace rose in my front yard is has been producing incredibly fragrant blooms for months now. And outside my studio window, a climbing rose has hundreds of buds ready to open up.
While the roses may be thriving, the tomatoes unfortunately are not happy…
A couple of doodles drawn while watching repeats of Project Runway…
Having fun with Flash.
Richard was by far the most interesting part of my day. The above sketch was drawn from the memories of our conversation after I returned to the studio.
Just goofing around with photoshop… There are three sequences of images (2 ‘before’ photos, and the final merged ‘after’).

While working at Briarpatch magazine, the editor asked if I would do a sketch of an old gnarled tree. Shortly thereafter, it appeared on his shoulder.
