Dead Flower

A pen and ink sketch I was working one during proctoring finals. It's a dead flower I photographed in my backyard.

Hungry Bunny

This started off as a quick Illustrator doodle I did a couple of years ago. I saw it the other day and decided I wanted to play around with it. I decided to take it into Photoshop and sort of make it look like a Linocut. It's not totally where I want it to be, but it's a good start.

"Too Many Fish in the Sea" Linocut

Here is an old Linocut I found lying around, so I figured I'd post it. It's from Graduate School, and it's by no means my best work, but I still like it. Oldie but a goodie I guess.

Indian Skull Helmet

Here are progress shots for a catcher's mask I painted for a friend, going from first coat to finished product. He wanted a "badass skull with an indian headdress" on it, so this is what I came up with.

Dragon & Sea Turtle

Finally, a new illustration I can post. This was a special request of a dragon and a sea turtle, so I thought it would be fun to have the dragon riding the turtle on a wave. I originally had the entire thing colored, but after much decision-making, I realized I liked it better with everything colored but the actual animals, I think it makes them pop more with them being in black and white. Anyway, enjoy.

Bird Chillin' in a Sketchbook

So here's something new I've been trying out lately. Layering some cool watercolor/acrylic washes and doing a pen and ink drawing on top of them. The texture on the washes is actually little bits of bath salt I put on the paper when the color was drying, and it came out pretty cool I thought. More to come soon on this front.

Sketchbook Bear

More experimenting with watercolors, acrylic paint, and pen and ink, mixed with some weird textures and all that good stuff.

I've Got My Stunnas On

Just a little random I did while bored out of my mind the other day in class.

Gouache Resist Bunny

So this is a Gouache Resist I did a little while ago. Basically what that means is you paint the picture you want, then cover the entire piece in India Ink, and let it dry. You then run the entire thing under water, and the ink is repelled from the gouache paint. So anything not painted (meaning any paper showing) is going to turn black, and you get some cool dropout effects with the ink, as shown.

Also, I've been really into these carnivorous rabbits lately, I don't know why, but they're fun.

Ghost-Tiger Fish

I had this weird idea in class the other day when my students were taking a quiz about camouflage ghost animals. So I sort of just took this tiger fish and made its stripes camo-colored, and purposely disregarded the outline to give it a sort of ghostly look. I wanted the stripes to make up the outline of the fish, and it came out pretty sweet I thought.
