Moment of Zen

This is a watercolor of an excellent image Alan captured of a rare moment of peace between the cats — aware of each other but sufficiently distant.

Changes of Perspective

In the strangest year in my lifetime, I figured it was fitting to wrap it up with a few oddities that are changes in perspective.

An Animation Cel Portrait at Disneyworld

A fresh new type of commission: an animation cel portrait!

Everyday Things

While I’ve been home I’ve been digging much more into the art materials I’d accumulated. I realized I could carry this mat around as a kind of window to change my view of my indoor environment.

What’s Next for Earth

An unexpected human pause for Earth Day’s 50th anniversary is giving us a view we don’t often see.

Silent Stars and Nighttime

These themes emerged while I was creating new giftable art for the annual HARK! holiday show and sale at Kaleid Gallery.

Ever-Changing Tree Cards

I got the idea of making linoleum prints of a base object that I could vary in simple ways with markers.

Self-Portrait with Untapped

I created this sketch for a self-portrait show at the Art NXT Level / 33 Contemporary Gallery space in Chicago.

Bronze Warriors I & II

These two are random sketches based on a couple of interesting frames I found. I started with the owlish mask of what became the first weary warrior woman.

Boondocks Triptych

I figured if the comic were going today, Huey and Riley would be Black Panther fans so they’re doing the Wakanda salute here…or trying to.

Flaming Carrot

It’s been a little while since I’ve drawn in a comic style, so I decided to go for one of my standbys: Flaming Carrot.

Loki I & II

Inspired by the flame effect of these frames, I created a couple of illustrations in ink and colored pencil based on a painting I did in college.

Trilogy of Shadow Puppets

These frames reminded me of the soot around a fireplace so I created these three illustrations of shadow puppets.

Prior Art: Mixing

Mixing is the last of seven technologies I’ve explored in Prior Art: analog media manipulation and vintage virtual reality.

Prior Art: Reel-to-Reel

Reel-to-Reel is the sixth of seven technologies I’ve explored in Prior Art: analog media manipulation and vintage virtual reality.

Prior Art: Transfers

Transfers are the fifth of seven technologies I’ve explored in Prior Art: analog media manipulation and vintage virtual reality.

Prior Art: Zoëtropes

Zoëtropes are the third of seven technologies I’ve explored in Prior Art: analog media manipulation and vintage virtual reality.

Prior Art: Typesetting

Typesetting is the first of seven technologies I’ve explored in Prior Art: analog media manipulation and vintage virtual reality.

Belva Lockwood

Again, in the spirit slightly odd vintage photo captions, she was described as “famous lawyer and bicycle rider.”

Waiting & Watching

This chunky wooden frame reminded me of the aesthetic of Bruegel’s earthy illustrations or Goya’s creatures.
