Garden Harvest


I remember once in an interview, David Letterman was asked where he got his sense of humor. He recalled growing up in Indiana with a grandfather who would take him out to the garden to hunt watermelons, sneaking up on them very quietly. That explains a lot, doesn't it?

To the Beach!


Every time I say "To the beach!" I think of Mr. Bean. Click here to see why. Good, silly movie. Perfect for summertime.

Digital Collage Fun


This was fun. I decided to try a little digital collage for this kindergarten early reader. Sitting on the floor, dipping a toothbrush into paint and splattering it all over watercolor paper, I felt like a kindergartener myself!

The Beauty of Black and White

This is a cropped section of an illustration I recently completed for an upcoming book from Magination Press. (click to enlarge) I'm surprised by how much I've enjoyed working in black and white. I went old school and used India ink washes and a dip pen (along with a Staedtler pigment liner). P.S. There are five bugs hidden in the art. Can you find them all?
