Got some downtime at work? Grab a hunk of cardboard and a handful of colored pencils, and get to work.
Here’s another work doodle . I gave it as a gift to a coworker. I did this one with ink and colored pencil.
This piece ended up being the inspiration for Sassy In Disguise.
I imagine clowns are very angry in reality. Due to their contact with children and all the forced, over-the-top happiness. If they aren’t, I think it is safe to write them off as dangerously disturbed perverts.
This clown was done with ink and colored pencil, back in the good ol’ days when I had time to doodle on the clock.
Here is an illustration completed during my Sophomore year at CCAD. The project involved creating an illustrated magazine cover. In the end I wasn’t really happy with the end result of the cover, but I’ve always really liked the illustration.

I have been getting a lot of good feedback on my earlier post of Electric Giraffe 1. So I decided to release his brother Electric Giraffe 2 to the world.
This piece was actually commissioned by Cindy Untch after she saw the first Electric Giraffe. Her request went along the lines of “I want a painting just like Electric Giraffe 1 but in green.” She is my favorite type of client.
The painting was created in 2009. It is a combination of acrylic, gouache, colored pencil, watercolor, and spackle on canvas.
Because I wasn’t able to update the blog last week, I thought I would deliver a double dose this week. So here are two paintings I have done for my beautiful girlfriend Emily.
I have a tradition where every year for her birthday I create a work of art for her. These are 2 of those works.
The painting titled Electric Giraffe 1 was created in 2008. It is a combination of acrylic, gouache, colored pencil, watercolor, and spackle on canvas.
The other painting titled Lost Tooth was created in 2009. It too is a combination of acrylic, gouache, colored pencil, watercolor, and spackle on canvas with the addition of graphite and ink.
