Nights and Weekends, 2014. Ink and digital color, 16x20”.
Freebie month! I made a piece about the day job/dream job duality within which most artists (including myself, of course) operate. I may be showing this in an exhibition this summer. Don’t quit your day job!

What’s up, Portland? I’m flying in tonight for ICON, the Illustration Conference. This piece will be on display at the Land Gallery as part of the ICON8 Work+Play exhibit. The show is up June 11-Aug 24, with an opening reception this Friday at 8pm. If you’re in the City of Roses, come check it out. More info here.
Threshold, 2014. Ink and digital color, 8x10”.
I actually had a phase a few years ago where the only thing I painted was interiors, so with this assignment I was fighting a bit to keep from repeating myself. The result here is kind of a creepy vintage illustration.
A thing for QDC.
day 25 - a quarter of the way through! sir kenton kitten is here to forge a life in the mountains and he MADE us tortillas(!) and shared quesodilla ingredients with us and it was delicious. i am full of beer and excite.
Hangin’ at Chris and Mo’s place, slingin’ some whole wheat tortillas. I’m kind of a nomad right now, so most of my posts will probably be sketchbook type stuff for a week or two.
This month, since we’re exploring environments, we decided to show off our own environments - where we work. Here’s the first half of our group’s spaces.
A brief tour of QDC studios. I’m taking mine to Denver tomorrow, so who knows what it will look like in its next incarnation. Hopefully tidier.
Dallas Zoo Sketchbook Page, 2014. Ink on paper, 9x12”.
I went to the Dallas Zoo by myself last week because I had free tickets, but I didn’t know anyone patient enough to follow me around while I drew all the animals. I spent a lot of time in the herpetarium, because I don’t get a chance to draw scaly things from life very often.
