Blog Tour, My Illustration Process

Blog Tour, My Illustration Process

Welcome to my stop on this fun blog tour. I want to thank my illustrator friend, Josh Lewis, for inviting me. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Josh a couple weeks ago while he was visiting Portland.

Remembering Gary Michaels

Remembering Gary Michaels

On Monday, May 27, 2013 a very good friend of mine, Gary Michaels, passed away. I had the great fortune of working with Gary for nearly seven years (since November, 2006), and it’s safe to say that I probably wouldn’t be working as a professional illustrator or designer if it weren’t for him. He was… Continue Reading

Rayna always teases me about it. So, a… Continue Reading

I’m jealous. You can view her work at www.clelanddesign.com. Wow! Take a look at that masking job. Atta girl! I’d hire… Continue Reading

Y2K Revisited

Y2K Revisited

I was going through some old sketchbooks yesterday and found this sketch for a Y2K cartoon I was to do when I was a cartoonist for the Oregon State U.’s student paper The Barometer. The cartoon is circled in red. I drew this sketch in November of 1999. The funny thing about this sketch is… Continue Reading
