sculpture is neat

Sometimes I make things, and then I forget to talk about it. Here’s a belated valentine just for you.   I was playing with some plain old crayons on a piece of corrugated cardboard. The corrugated part makes the whole venture a little frustrating, to be honest. I learned that I like paint more on…

Floorward Bound

It’s been almost a year since I broke my ankle, and I’ve been reminded of it the last few days since it’s an icy time of year. On Friday i made my way to an early morning yoga class, felt all blissed out and relaxed, and even happy to see a dusting of snow on…

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…

Nutritious thoughts, coursera week 1

I’ve been squirreled away under a rock and a marching band and a broken leg this year, but if you manage to run into me, you’d notice that there’s a lot less of me to run into. I’ve been pretty aggressively working out and working on building a better understanding of health and nutrition since…

using my time

I didn’t have to go in to work today, but my current WIP should have involved standing outside with an orbital sander, and it just didn’t quite seem the right day for that.  Instead I spent the day trying to create a digital image from scratch without using paper. I got to play with a…

the things of fun

Several months ago I joined a gaming campaign and my buddy asked me to make some art to be used in the game.  I made more icons than these, but these are the ones i like the most, so I figured I’d share.  These were meant for little 1 inch square cards.  Some of the…

Figuring things out

I have a tendency to bring a sketchbook with me everywhere I go, even if it’s only 3″x4″.  It gives me something to do when I feel like being antisocial, I can take notes, and I have the ability to draw no matter how cramped quarters are.  Back in November at a large Thanksgiving gathering…
