Cute dinosaurs

I have a new series of prints I am starting. Dinosaurs and balloons! I call the High in the Sky, three sizes available, printed with archival ink on Epson paper. I have two done already with more to come! Anything anyone would like to see in the future? Brontosaurus or Stegosaurus perhaps?
I am practicing my characterization. I want to try and stylize something while still maintaining my own voice. Hopefully they come across that way.

Illustration Friday: Danger

Every now and then I like to participate in Illustration Friday. This week, the inspiration word is: Danger. I love danger! It makes things so much more fun then plain old, mildly exciting. My first thought was to do Danger Mouse, but I decided to kill two birds with one stone and used this week for my Monster Monday feature on I felt this was a good way to portray something that wasn't an in your face kind of danger, but more of a lurking potential danger!

A new Illustration Friday post.

This week's topic is Trouble.  I have been really getting into Doctor Who and nothing says "trouble" like a Dalek sneaking around.

Illustration Friday Challenge - Octopus, flying the coop

I really like the idea of flying mollusks.  I draw them quite a bit. The word for Illustration Friday, is Octopus. What a word for me! So this is the drawing I did over lunch breaks and such for this week, it's coming in a little it late sadly.

Illustration Friday - Shakespeare's Chimp

So the topic this week for Illustration Friday is Skull. I don't really have a reason for this image, other then the fact that it's a skull. That's being held by a chimpanzee. I thought of it while at church. Not that I think there is some connection between being in church and an ape holding a human skull. But I do think that my subconscious has a really good idea going here and it really wanted to get it out in the open. I don't have a meaning for it yet, but I would like to hear what you think, so leave a comment!

A doodle I did in a day

This link, which I am sharing in this manner for the first time, I try and do every day, I dont always get it done, but I am trying. And that is a 30 min sketch. I drew this one while watching the show, White Collar.  If you dont know the show, this is benign criminal genius, Mozzie, who is walking his "son". Who really is a doll stuffed with James Bond like tools and gadgets.
I hope that the link shows my picture.

Unicorn without a horn

This is an illustration I did for my brother in law. He has a funny podcast called, Gagmen. Its a podcast for the beleaguered Dungeon Master who needs some punch added to his/her campaign.  A group of comedians world build and explore crafting new ways to enhance the gaming experience.  Its also really funny and the production value is well done. After they finish beating a campaign to death, they post a pdf with art (hence my contribution) and words and everything for you to download! Go sign up and add this podcast to your que at
The most recent episode has this illustration to go with the story.  I am pretty proud of it.  There are of course some issues that I think I could have done more with it, but overall I am happy with it. What is really fun, I drew and colored this completely from start to finish on my Galaxy Note 8. All the thumbnails and sketching started in my tablet. I used Sketchbook Pro as my drawing app. The S-pen stylus is great to work with. But it is a little skinny, I would like one that was a little thicker. So there you go, all digital, all done on a tablet.  Now go to and you can get a copy of it and a new campaign to nerd it up with your loved ones.

And the winner is...

This is a bitter sweet post. I wish it was all good news regarding the Help For Hazel fundraiser, you know, that she receieved the surgery she needed and all went well. Sadly, that wasnt what happened. Hazel went in and had some x-rays taken, her lungs and body cavity were full of tumors. The doctor didn't give her long to live. We made the terrible decision to put her down the next morning. That was last Friday. She was a wonderful rabbit. We miss her a lot. Because she didn't make it, we stopped the fundraiser early. But we still had the drawing for the prize painting.  The hat is all the names and tickets of the donors. The second picture is the winning ticket pulled from the hat, thanks Rachel!
