And I’m focusing on what I want to paint: book covers, video game stills, game card designs, and fantasy illustrations.
We’re starting out pretty easy. I had begun the 15-Day Drawing Challenge, courtesy of Amanda Wright (Wit & Whistle), about 5 days ago. So I’m on #6, “A Word.” I posted a page out of my sketchbook from a couple of the first ones below. This one is due on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4th. #15DayDrawingChallenge – […]
Little 5×7″ watercolor sketches that I created while on vacation. Pinterest is a great place for finding reference images…

Because I always enjoy seeing step-by-step processes of art pieces, I’ve been taking pictures throughout the process of my most recent watercolors. First up: Blackberries Supplies: 140 lb. Arches cold-press paper, pencil, watercolors, Q-tips (to lift paint), and probably a bit of Doc Martin’s Bleed-Proof White (for highlights of berries) 1. Wash of background colors […]
I’m teaming up with Abby Young for new Christmas cards this year, so keep your eye out after Thanksgiving when I plan to be releasing them 🙂 Don’t forget what an awesome gift personalized artwork is. Commissions open, and price list HERE. In the meantime, here’s an art piece I created this summer: I have […]
WILD – acrylic on canvas, approx 5×3′. 2/8/2013 Will be getting a better picture of it soon.
Here’s an acrylic sketch for an upcoming piece: And here’s a little doodle I finally put some finishing touches on:
Something You Haven’t Seen Yet: Here’s a book cover that I had done as a favor (something I don’t recommend on ANY level, even if the commissioner is your bestest friends in the whole world): The author of The Veil Wars never got back in touch with me concerning this piece, so I can assume he […]
I recently bought a new adorable little video camera which is capable of creating time-lapse films. So, being inspired by numerous Youtube clips of people actually recording their watercolor work, I thought I’d have a go at it. My first set up was simple but I didn’t have the angles quite right. I did succeed […]
Here’s a batch of commissions that I just got through, mostly for the Valentine’s Day special from February (which you can find through my Facebook page). I don’t think there was anyone who purchased this deal with the intention of giving it as a V-day gift, which I thought was amusing. But here are most […]
With how often I have to postpone coffee dates, I think we can safely assume that there’s no time for life. So now that we’ve got that nonesense out of the way, let’s move on with reality. New Projects The first thing worth mentioning is this NETT (New Emergence of Tacoma Talent) that I started […]
You can find it here. So… that’s pretty cool. Or whatever. First time in a newspaper. No biggie. Oh. And here’s that piece of art that’s also in the show. I found it on another computer.
This summer has gone by quickly, but a lot has happened. My sister was engaged on 4th of July weekend and married by September 4th (!) with a steampunk themed wedding. Then she moved to Texas where he lives. She’s planning to be there for at least two years…I don’t think I can be away […]
I can now give claim that my art has been displayed in an art museum (before I’m dead, too!). Specifically the Tacoma Art Museum. So I suppose I should fill you in on the details… My art professor told us on the last day of class (a Monday) that he had been approached by Pierce’s […]
I recently tried my hand at something like Impressionism (whether triumphant or not…) because of an assignment. I was supposed to draw inspiration from a song, so I chose Dustbowl Dance by Mumford & Sons. I feel that there is a really strong narrative that accompanies the lyrics and emotion of the vocalist. In the […]
I completed a new drawing exercise – using a reference, of course – of a male nude. I don’t have much to say about it besides the fact that I love the ornate couch in contrast with the figure. That and the lighting is incredibly dramatic and I love it 😛 It was just accepted […]
Some new things I’ve been working on (i.e. things I’ve been doing during lectures). These are the doodles from my sketchbook. All graphite on bristol paper. This isn’t quite finished, but it’s close enough. No matter how much this may look like it, this was not actually inspired by Twilight. I don’t mind if you […]
