While on my Miami vacation, I went to the zoo about 5 times, to sketch and take pictures. I feel I have to promote the zoo a bit here, because when I went there, it was kind of empty. So here are three cool things about Miami Metrozoo: You buy a general admission once, if […]

I think I’ll make a silkscreen print from this… Please click on the image to see the full size. Update: Just finished making a silkscreen of this illustration. You can see it in the work section of my site. The registration is a bit off… and had some problem washing off the emulsion. I’ll have […]

I thought I’d try an illustration for “illustration friday”, to practice working quickly. I did the drawing in about a day, with no reference. I wanted to just get this illustration done as quickly as possible…sometimes I overthink things, so here I decided to not think at all. This week’s suggestion was “chicken”.

This is a question I’ve been wondering since I’ve received an email from Communication Arts reminding me of their illustration competition.

Still don’t have a scanner this week, so I can’t upload some new sketches I did. Here’s a book review instead (my first)!

I’m on DeviantArt

Posted by on Jan 1, 2011 in News | No Comments

Decided to put up a page on DeviantArt. I initially resisted the idea because it seems like the bulk of deviantart is populated by teens who like to draw fanart (whereas i’m not a teen and i haven’t done fanart since college). But after the insistence of one of my teachers, c.m butzer, I thought […]
