SKETCHBOOK IS HERE!Tuesday, August 18, 2015
So very excited to announce that Sketchbook is now available to the public!  This has been a project a long time in the making and I couldn't be happier to share the results with you all! This is 216 pages of sketch madness sandwiched between 2 hard covers.  Published by Tank Theory.

SKETCHBOOK RELEASE PARTY!Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Portland Peoples!
Please join me at the White Owl Social Club for the Sketchbook Release Party! Thursday, August 20th is the date and 5pm is the start time.  I will have a table set up where Portland Kickstarter backers can pick up their books and other backer reward stuff.  Those in the area who missed my Kickstarter campaign but want a Sketchbook will be able to purchase them as well.  This will be the last time to purchase the book from me in person before they become available online and to the public.. So come on down, get yourself a book and raise a glass with me as I celebrate the release of my first pubished book.

There will be goodie bags for the first 50 people to come buy (or pick up) a Sketchbook.  Music provided by two talented local DJs, Survival Skills and Morning Remorse!  Sponsored by the oh so delicious BTU Brewing and Tank Theory Original Artifacts.

Hope to see you there!

DRAWINGS IN BOOKSWednesday, July 22, 2015
I've been doing a lot of drawing in books lately.. Lots and lots of books. Every day, I try to get 2-4 drawings done in Sketchbooks in preparation for shipping.  Here are some of the drawings that Kickstarter backers can expect to receive in their books!
