This was a commissioned portrait for a good friend of mine.  A gift to the mother of the boy in the picture.

Doodling in School

Oh, the inspiration I get from high school...  I don't think I'll have anything quite like it again.

And some more...

What I've Been Up To....

This one I did in June.


Earthworm under a magnifying glass.  Another in-class doodle that I am very fond of.

Quick self portrait done in front a mirror.

All in one sitting.  Did it in oils.  It's probably done, but we'll see how I feel about it in the morning.

The Theory of Size

The Theory of Size

This is about how we view size.  Certain things are big, other things are small.  But really, things go on forever in both directions.  A mountain range is microscopic compared to a solar nebula.  A butterfly is gigantic compared to an atom.  You get my point.  So here, what I have done is create an image filled with objects of all different sizes in actuality, and then made the smaller things in life larger and vice-versa.  You really need to see it in person to get the full effect, because there are a lot of small scenes you can't really see here. 

Look closely

This is a commission I did at the beginning of summer that I really like.  It was an anniversary present for a very cool couple I know.

30" x 40"

It's finally done.  I've been dying to make this vision a reality for months.  It's one of my favorite things I have designed.  I named the it 'Stages' when I originally drew it.  To me, it is about the different ways we view the world in different periods of our lives.  All very different, but equally real.  Just as my beliefs and yours are both equally true, no matter how conflicting they may be. 
I don't believe in one single truth. 
I believe that the truth is what you make it.

 I intentionally tied each figure together in different ways.  The old man and the middle-aged man in suits, the middle aged-man and the little boy in stripes, the old man and the little boy sit in an upright, optimistic position, the old man and the little boy have shells for heads, the middle-aged man and the old man rest their arms on their knees and so on...  There are a few more symbols in there, maybe you can spot.  And they all sit together on one small bench, looking out into the infinite desert and all of it's infinite grains of sand.  
The desert does not change with their ages, their clothing and their minds.  
It is just as still, as deadly, as boundless and absolute as it is.

Some Rough Pen Work

This is my fantasy bird/fish I did for a school assignment.
I'm going to add to it once I get it back.

Another class assignment I thought turned out rather interesting.
It's supposed to be a mask which I will Photoshop onto a picture of myself.

This was based off of a poem I wrote about Dora Maar and Picasso
