Pen and ink work for my next “Fish I see while Snorkeling” print series. This the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. Say that three times fast or even once for that matter. It’s the State fish of Hawaii and is known as the Reef Triggerfish in English. These guys can be really colorful, but I think I’m going to […]
Surf Chipmunks Line art.
Here are the inks for the latest print in the surf series I’m working on. I’ll be working up the screen print separations tomorrow. I’m think this may be a three color print. I might put some text along with it. There are no chipmunks on the islands as far as I know but drawing […]
I’ve been trying to identify and memorize the local reef fish for when I go snorkeling and was having a terrible time at it. Sure, I could buy a guide book, but what’s the fun in that. So, I started taking pictures of them with my GoPro and then taking to the inter webs to […]
Bad Hair Day
I was looking through my old files and found this drawing I had done quite a while ago. I hadn’t cleaned up the scan or retouched it, so I think I might not have posted it. This definitely me at my most obsessive compulsive. I needed to draw every single snake with exquisite detail. Enjoy.
Surf’s Up Jungle Fowl

Surf Cat is Hungry
I’m prepping to move into a new studio soon here in Hilo! To celebrate I drew up a Surf Cat!
OTTER SPACE! revisited and refined
I needed a new image for a business card. Something fun and memorable. My friend Izzy mentioned he was holding a space themed event with scientists from the University of Hawaii, Hilo at the Hilo Town Tavern and asked if I could work up a poster design. The event was called “OTTER SPACE”. The event […]
