Looking forward to the fall.
Working on a wonderful project that will be coming out this Thanksgiving.

Just in case anyone needs an artist who can draw chicken wire.

Chicken wire

Detail work... chicken wire madness. 
There is something relaxing about the repetition. 
We’ll see how it turns out.
(Pencil over watercolor)
keeping my sense of humor this time of year...

Happy New Year!

(graphite on printer paper)

I'm hoping to draw a bit more this year.
Post a bit more.
Laugh a bit more...
and perhaps clean up this mess...
or at very least draw it.

Happy Holidays!

This guy.
I can still hear him... just in the other room.

Merry Christmas.

Finchosaurus is here!
(Thank you @mariapadian for this lovely photo)

 I truly enjoyed creating the cover art for this one.
I'm an illustrator, AND a student care worker.. I have worked with so many wonderful kids who have trouble sitting still. So being able to create the image of Finch bouncing around and day dreaming at his desk, was an honor and a joy.

This is such a wonderful story, Thank you Gail Donovan and Islandport Press!

Will it ever stop raining?

Working on these two characters right now. 
Definitely influenced by the weather.

Knock Knock

At little something left over from winter.
