My latest piece has brought me back to my paints. Prints coming soon!
I created a new page on my site today showing the work I've been doing in my Moleskine sketchbook as well as smaller pieces of paper. I LOVE Moleskine books and didn't start using one until recently. The paper is so lovely and can really hold some watercolor as well as gouache. Ink flows easily on them as well. There is also something so wonderful about just holding a book in your hands to keep anything you wish... recipes, lyrics, poems, thoughts, whatever! I can't recommend them enough.
New prints coming soon
The Lady of Shallot - John William Waterhouse
A time lapse of the drawing I'm currently working on. This is the largest drawing I've attempted (30" x 42") - I'm hoping to be finished this week!
My friend Tony, the front man for the Seattle based band Jackrabbit used one of my illustrations for their new album cover.
I took a trip this past summer to Spring Green, Wisconsin to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin and The House on the Rock. This was my first time at The House on the Rock and I never even saw the craziest parts of it so I plan on going back. Go if you want to be in the weird zone, you won't be disappointed.
The Vikings made beautiful jewelry. Check out this bronze dragon brooch from the 10th century.
I had a lot of fun illustrating the cover of the City Pages Winter Guide! I also and have four other illustrations throughout the issue. It's great to live in a place like Minnesota where we don't let freezing temps get us too down and I love being outdoors all winter long. (The great polar vortex of 2013/2014 not included though. That year was BRUTAL!)
Seeking and appreciating art is an essential part of my creativity. A collection of some of my favorite works which I will post from time to time:
