My first map illustration for Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine was published this month for their regular feature, Happy Trails. (This one features attractions near Boone, NC.) I’ve really been enjoying this gig and getting to learn about some beautiful places to visit nearby. So if you happen to live in the Blue Ridge area, pick […]
I was up pretty late the other night trying to get this done in time for my final, and as I was working on the sign I realized, “This is it, my last homework assignment before I graduate. The end really is near!” Actually, it still could use a little work, but its already been […]

The gags tend to focus more […]
This illustration is based off a sketch I did while I was visiting Bali, Indonesia on a meditation retreat. They had an amazing Balinese Ganesha temple featuring a huge brass statue of Ganesha, some awesome dragon lamps (which I don’t think I was able to show off very well here), and wooden cobra sculpture […]
Study for a painting I’ll be working on this weekend. The lighting from my reference photos isn’t very exciting, so I’ll have to see what I can do to improve that.
