Drinking Cats 2012


Some cats I was doodling during a meeting in 2012. These guys are reminiscent of the cats from *Buy One, Get One Free, a short cartoon I did with Charlie Bean and Carey Yost at Hanna-Barbera back in 1995.

Robot Tussin











Recently I had a cold that lasted a long time and this Robitussin DM bottle was always around so I drew it many times. The end.

Last year in May I started to work with oil paint again for the first time since high school. (27 years?!) This was my first little experiment.

Sections from a Work in Progress


These are Hipstamatic photos of a painting that's been kicking around my studio for 2 years now. I recently pulled it out to work on it some more. These photos are more contrast-y and saturated than the original piece.

Crayon Tower


I love to sit with my girls and draw with crayons.
They are surprisingly fun and expressive, but it's clear that some manufacturers cheap out on certain colors and there isn't much consistency in the way they perform from color to color. But that adds to the serendipity of it.

Oil on Canvas

This painting has been finished for almost 3 months and through one thing or another I haven't been able to find the time to get it up on my blog.
This is my first oil painting in 27 years. I expect more to come, though I'm not giving up acrylics. Using one medium really makes me appreciate the other.
The "framed" drawing is a funny pad of paper my daughter has where every page has a different frame printed on it. We were drawing together one morning with her markers and my other daughter decided to add to my sketch with some smashed up strawberry. I like what it adds to it.
