Part of my survival rests on gigs between shows. I don't do as many illustrations as I used to, not that I don't want to just that my work seems only to be commercially viable on other planets. So occasionally I go into commission mode. My most greatest thing would be to get a really big commission from a rich party so that I could do my life's greatest big painting but I will also do great smaller paintings for those not quite so rich. Email me at if you are interested.

Don't want to give away too much but I'm working on a completely cool project with the Boise Contemporary Theater. It has monsters. This is just one page of many showing first doodles. Probably all that I'll share until I get the go ahead to release stuff. MONSTERS!

We Love Our Pets

Sometimes a quick study develops into something more. As I worked this painting on a piece of birch it started to do things that I liked. I worked a little harder and now wish I had done it larger.

The NPR 2013 is now on sale. I had the honor to be a part of this. Sales will support NPR and that is cool. Here is the link to buy:

Field of Fire

This is me just trying to get better. Another sketchbook thing made into an illustration. I built this from an autobiographical story. My brother was something of a pyromaniac when we were young. He burned down a few things. I remember walking away from one of our lizard hunting fields and all of a sudden when I looked back the field burst into flames. We ran. My bro swore he didn't know what happened.

Do you remember the Fish and Game poster I did a little while ago? Well I couldn't just leave the painting the way it was. There is something wrong with me.

Things Between Paintings

Once in awhile as I work on paintings I'll take something from the sketchbook and make a little illustration out of it. Since it's been a week since my last post I thought I'd show you all one of these that I particularly like.

Sketch Excerpts

 I noticed it creeping up on a week since my last post. Trying to stay regular here and in life. Instead of sketchbook pages I thought I'd sort out the madness and just give little excerpts this time. I realize those whole pages can overwhelm and literally burn eyeballs out of their sockets. By the way I'm working on several paintings at once so the updates are fewer and farther between, as if you are really paying attention.
