It’s been awhile since I did anything for Illustration Friday, but I’ve been wanting to get back into it. I’ve also been doing Von Glitschka’s 21 Day Drawing Challenge, so I thought of combining the two this week since Day 7 is Draw What You Like. This was a ton of fun to draw. I recently […]
Awhile back, I attempted to take on the “21 Day Drawing Challenge“, from Lynda.com’s Von Glitschka. I started off quite impressively (You can see my Day 1 drawing here.) but very quickly found myself wanting to use this opportunity to experiment with color and brushes in Photoshop. Which meant that I was […]
Recently I had the privilege of doing some more children’s illustration for Pennsylvania’s Power Kids Electronic Library. This time around I got to illustrate a few state symbols, the white-tailed deer, model K4s 1361 locomotive, and a mountain laurel. I also got to do a fun pair of illustrations of Ben Franklin conducting some children […]
I got contacted last Fall by local design studio The Ivy Group to work on a really great project for the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

During the course of my 365 challenge, a friend of mine suggested I do a walk cycle, and then animate it later. The second gif shows the untouched scans from my sketchbook. […]
Recent illustration for Utah Adventure Journal for an article on uncomfortable outdoor footwear. I had no idea rock climbing was so hard on the feet!
Here’s a couple of cartoon maps I did for the July issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors for an article highlighting various outdoorsy road trips along the Blue Ridge Mountains. The top map even includes my first-ever celebrity likeness, Paula Deen (y’all!), for her Savannah restaurant Lady and Sons.
Here’s just a few samples of my ongoing 365 challenge for a character I’m developing called Kid Hercules. I actually completed the challenge back in April, but have a pretty big backlog of images to upload. This has been such a great project and something that has helped improve my work in ways […]
Here’s a piece I did for an article in FORE Magazine, put out by the Southern California Golf Association. The story is about efforts being made to encourage golfers to speed up their game a bit. Below are some of the sketches I did that didn’t make it. As much as I like each […]
