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.

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.

President Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton today for the Democratic Presidential nomination. I thought this would be a good time to re-post this image.
