Posted by on Mar 1, 2018 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Surf Puppy Line Up.   I’ve been working on a series of surf related pieces for a show in October here in Hilo.  I also want to build up a portfolio for local galleries. It’s been fun and challenging. I’m trying to create cool surf art without rehashing worn out tropes or to use those […]

Library Journal Illustration

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I did this illustration for the Library Journal in August for the September issue. It was actually a bit of an adventure into the old school techniques that I hadn’t used in ages. I almost always draw my final line art on paper with pen and ink but over the last several years I’ve been […]

In between pages of KITTENS #3, I’ve been practicing my watercolors. I’m still pretty rusty but it’s been a lot of fun. This one is inspired by the Monstero plants that grow all over the east side of the Big Island. I’ll be doing more of these!

This is a mock-up for my next screenprint- Octoband! I might also put this on a tote bag or a t-shirt. It’s been raining endlessly here in Providence… the next time I tell someone I’m from Oregon and the first thing they always say is “Doesn’t it rain there all of the time?” It does, […]

So much Destruction

Posted by on Mar 8, 2016 in Uncategorized | No Comments

So as I was finishing this ink wash drawing I had a revelation- It’s not often in life that we achieve our dream goals. Sometimes we get pretty close. I draw for a living which is pretty sweet but when I was 15 I thought I’d be living the high life drawing only monsters and […]
