Heya, Half Pint!


I’ve been spending time at a local coffee shop when I have time in the mornings.  The barista there is kinda cute, so I couldn’t stop myself from doing a drawing of her the other morning to break in my new sketchbook.  Then I brought it home and decided to try something other than my normal digital painting;  I pulled out and dusted off my markers and started having some fun.  I think more of these are in store for the days to come.

Go-Go-Gadget Gouache!


Last weekend I had the opportunity to take part in the Watercolor Society of Oregon’s annual conference.  During some down time someone literally thrust a few tubes of gouache into my hands and told me to do a little painting.  After about ten (maybe fifteen?) minutes I had blocked this little heroine in and had to get back to my duties.

I’m thinking more of this kind of thing will be in my future.

Silk Spectre!


Or Sally Jupiter.  Really, you can take your pick, but you’d better be polite — she looks rather sassy.

This is another of the sketch cards I did for the Rose City Comic Con.  Honestly, this might have been one of my favorite of the group.



I’ve been a little distracted this week, but the good news is I should have two projects to announce in the not-too-distant future!  In the meantime, I offer you this little Earth goddess-type lady.  She’s another from the set of 4″ x 6″ drawings I took with me to the Rose City Comic Con.

Shadow Cat and Colossus: Part I


I’m going to try something new over the next couple of days; I feel as if I’ve been posting a lot of sketch work recently, and not a whole lot of finishes.  So, I’m going to post some progress shots of a new piece I’m working on.  It might also inspire me to get myself in gear and finish it up.

Have a good week, everyone.

Tall Bikes


Tall bikes.

It’s a Portland thing.

Can’t say I really understand it, myself, but there you have it.  I can say, however, that I relished the challenge of drawing one.  They are kind of neat — even if they are a bit silly.



Now that Rose City ComicCon is over I won’t feel bad about posting all of the drawings I did in preparation I did for it.  (There’s no longer any surprise to ruin, is there?)  This was one of many 4″x6″ drawings I had in my arsenal.  I find it interesting that it was also the first drawing to sell.

Hey, when you gotta party, you gotta party.
