BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARDThursday, May 15, 2014
I'm back at work doing what I do best.. sketching.  Having cultivated 2 new bodies of painting work over the last year, I'm feeling accomplished on the exhibition front but somehow yearning to get back to the basics of what got me into art making in the first place.. putting pen to paper.  I'm working on a variety of new linework for upcoming silkscreen print releases, so keep your eyes peeled on the site.. New stuff is on the way!








PORTLAND MERCURY COVERMonday, May 5, 2014
I'm a few weeks behind on posting this but my "LSD" artwork from the 2014 Acid Print Suite made the cover of the Portland Mercury!  Super excited about this.. Since I moved to Portland in 2008, this is the third cover of I've done.. Thanks Portland Mercury as always for the shine! 

There are a few more LSD prints in my shop as well. Anyone waiting until the last minute to scoop one, now is the time!

I am happy with how this final piece came out.. "Adderall" is the name.. 32x45", graphite and watercolor on paper, 2014.  Safe travels to your new home!
