Elephantine Commission

It’s really fun to try and take what someone wants and turn it into an image. Sometimes things sound easier than they are in practice. I was asked to take the style that I use on my monsters and make an elephant nurse errant. Huzzah! Sure! Then I got to sketching and I got confused….

Showing the Art

Sometimes an art show is all about getting new material completed.  I worked on three new pieces for Arisia this year, and added a coffee art piece that I did earlier in the year. Thought you might enjoy these fairly fun pieces. 

Polar vortex

I don’t really like all the hoopla over the polar vortex. Yes I realize it’s an extant weather phenomena that people have known about for a long time. It just feels like it’s in the news because… well… sensational news! Everything must sound like the apocalypse. I honestly think this one sounds a lot like…

Firefly 2014

So firefly has come and gone. My two art installations survived and made it home.  I am excited about the next range of upgrades.  I’m still processing, but one of my favorite things about coming back from the woods is I feel free to share my ticket art with all of you. I love this…

SOS Prep Time

It’s that time of year again, Somerville Open Studios.  I always think of this as a chance to revisit what I’d managed to make over the course of a year. I have a couple new little digital pieces that I’ll post as a preview. If you follow me on instagram or twitter then there are a…

Froggy

I’ve been really satisfied with my bats of late, and 3 of the 5 I have are off to new homes. Hooray for bats.  I also recently had a commission for a frog, and I figured I’d share my process of making a custom plushie here.  Fabric is a whole fun set of problems that…

Mustache Love

I covered myself in acrylics this week in order to properly celebrate mustaches and a friend’s birthday.  I have rekindled a habit of sketching during band practice, and when I doodled a cute dragon/dog inspired monster portrait I knew immediately who this was for and what I needed to do with it. I sometimes neglect…

Big, bigger, buggiest

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Creative Times Summit in NYC.  The whole event inspired so many ideas and thoughts that I need time to unpack it all and share. While there I took some time to sketch, and particularly liked one of the things I did. I figured I’d share it…

The Pineapple King

In case you don’t keep up with me on any of the social networks, I had surgery on Sept 4, and I am sort of laid up until my body and I feel up to being up and about. This means I have some time to dig through some pictures I’ve made and color them…

Firefly 2013

I did not actually make it to Firefly this year.  There’s been too much going on, and i seriously just needed time in my own head, and time to spend with my family.  I still designed a ticket this year.  The design prospectus changed from previous years and I had fun playing with the new…
