12" x 23". oil.

Here are some in-progress photos (though taken with my cellphone camera which isn't great):

First state - You can possibly see the remnants of the painting beneath it. That other image was a disaster, so I slopped some light paint over it, inverted the board and got my mirror. Self-portraiture is an unpleasant, but often necessary exercise for practice.

Second state - Developing stuff here, it's just so hard to see with the bad photo, sorry!

The third state is what's above. Took about a week between each one.


~8"x8". ink.

When I get a new brushpen, it feels good to just make marks; pulling ink is fun and it doesn't even matter what about. The alphabet is a default subject :)

"At The Bus Stop"


An exercise using this photo of dandelions as a reference for composition, in an effort to mix things up from my usual habits.

some logo design work for commission.

not actually established in 1908, that was just to show the logo in use for something :)

i've been getting into bicycle repair, so the imagery was in my head to make it into a bicycle badge, because they are typically awesome.

"Dan Gurney & Friends"

sketchbook. pencil, marker.

Thanks to last minute word heads-up from my friend Mike, I heard about this local music/sketch event in time to attend. There were four guys on a little stage playing traditional Irish music, rollicking stuff - really quite excellent. I didn't manage to draw all four unfortunately. I tried to warm up by sketching a mug sitting nearby and then got down to it. The time seemed to fly; right when I was starting to loosen up and felt most comfortable drawing, then the whole thing was over(!) You can probably tell the order too: bottom left (mug), bottom right (Sean), top left (Dylan), top right (Dan).

I didn't catch everybody's full name, but the guy top right is Dan Gurney; his dad was in the audience. I would've drawn him too, but didn't have a good view - or so I thought; he drew me! He was incredibly nice, both interesting and interested.

Some of my happiest memories are of my time in marching band: the South Macon High School Marching Woverines.

I was fortunate to be hired to provide the cover illustration to the events
program for the New England Leather Alliance's upcoming semi-annual
fleamarket convention. Part of my compensation was a 1/2 page space
inside the program for self-promotion.

This is not the cover illustration - I was asked to keep that undistributed
until the convention - but this is the promotional image I made for inside.
