Halloween Radness 2018! (I)

It's that time once again, friends: the best part of the Best Month, my birthday! And also this monster dude's birthday! Here's me and Adam dressed up for the Ween in costumes from one of my favorite movies of all time. Check out last year's if you wanna. Also, a quick apology: I really tried to draw Adam as the alien from Aliens, and I'm really sorry that the world won't get to partake in that brilliance...ah well. Happy Me Day, everybody!!

Mr. Wonderful (GD)

Honored to design the postcard for my stepdad's upcoming Celebration of Life. One of the most important people in my life, he taught me so much about so many things, not least of which the absolute magic of shared laughter, that pure bullshit jag that makes life that much easier to deal with. I'm glad his suffering is past, but I miss him every day. Hum you, Beau Beau.

Pet Portrait Commission (I)

A commissioned piece for a veterinarian friend. The last of her client's trio of pets passed away recently, so this is some art to commemorate them, whom she affectionately referred to as the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and...well, you get the idea. Happy to help!

Four Seasons of Meditation, with Paul "Sparkling Leopard" Henshall

RIP Henry (I)

I painted this portrait for a friend who recently lost one of her best friends. I met this guy one time, a truly mellow king of a soul. I actually didn't mean for this to be the final version - I started out with the face and ears in colored pencils on regular 11"x18" paper, then did some painting with acrylics to fill in the rest. I like the unfinished, messy quality of it, balanced with the concentrated detail of the face.

Rest in peace, Henry.

The Queen of Crows (I)

IT'S FINALLY HERE! Ladies and gentleman, the BEST month is back. To kick it off, here's my lovely mother all done up, Photoshop-style, as what I'm calling the Queen of Crows. I honestly didn't set out to make this picture quite so...elaborate, but isn't she amazing? Below are most of the various images that went into creating her (there were a few more crows, I think.) OCTOBER!!!!

Love/Sick Poster Design (GD)

Aaaaaand it's time for another poster for the Mira Loma Black Box Theater! Love/Sick is a play about love in nine parts, chronicling the arc of a relationship, from a first meeting to a divorce, with nine different relationships. In the nine years we've worked together, I've gotten to create designs for Waiting For Godot, She Creatures, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and All In The Timing.

Pegacorn Update! Now With Griffin! (I)

A friend commissioned a portrait of her baby with unicorns and rainbows, so I created THIS for her a few years ago. Now that baby is a little older and she has a brother, so this was created for the two of them. Yay sparkling mythological beasts in space!
