Found these …

Found some old assignments from a college Illustration class. All were gouache paintings.

A design for a perfume store shopping bag:

For a concept article: “Do pets go to heaven?”

And a non-traditional interpretation of “The Eensy-Weensy Spider,” though I suppose you could argue “Little Miss Muffet” if you had to.

Nye Beach Cottage Sharpie Murals

So this was my big project as of a couple months ago. We stayed on the Coast in Newport, Oregon for four days, where I got paid to draw all over the walls of an actual 1913 Craftsman cottage with sharpies. It was a blast, but also a little nerve-wracking as I couldn’t do much in the way of preliminary drawings due to the wall surfaces. The cottage, which belongs to my folks (seriously – who else would set me loose on their house with a bunch of sharpies?) is being fixed up for a vacation rental. It’s a lovely little place, practically ON Nye Beach, in a gorgeous location with tons of character. I seriously cried when we left. Will post the renting information when it’s available.

So … if anybody else out there wants to pay me to vandalize their house or anything, drop me a line. I’d be happy to.

Glass

This happened awhile ago when I was listening to “Glass” by Bat for Lashes. He ended up with a weird sort of Joaquin Phoenix vibe.

It’s in Your Genes!

So at long last, here’s the book we worked on with Jacob’s grandmother, Maxine. I did the line work, some of the shadows, and color correction. Jacob did most of the digital stuff and the fun textures. It was a fun little project.

Edit: (If you want to buy it for a more reasonable price than Amazon’s, email me. PLEASE. We have copies.)

Not Dead Yet …

Still alive. Had another (awesome) baby and broke Photoshop, which, compounded by general laziness, evidently adds up to a year of interwebological inactivity. But I did write two books, got some business cards going, and an illustrated (co-illustrated) book through the works and up on Amazon. So if anyone’s still with me, stay tuned.
