A Fun Circus Parade!
Watercolor with Pen and Ink

Here’s a recent image celebrating the day at the circus. With Ringling Bros. closing down after more than 100 years, it’s the end of an era. No animal abuse going on here just some clowns with their elephant friend.

Happy New Year!

It’s time to sort through all of those New Year resolutions. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of time to forget them too.

Pen and Ink, Watercolor, and Graphite illustration.


Pirate Character Development-illustration


Another character from the self-initiated children’s book that I am writing and illustrating. This is one of the main characters in her pirate gear.

And here is the finished piece. The next installment into my children’s book. This is pen and ink with watercolor at 22″ x 30″


Pirate Illustration process


Here’s an illustration in progress for my book project that I’m working on. The earlier concepts of the pirates were worked into the composition. I’ve started the inking with pen. Once that is completed I’ll add some brush work and some watercolor on top. 


Pirate sketches


Sketches and concept drawings for my finished works. These two will make an appearance in my children’s book.
