A random portrait of an actual Trinity. The first shipped to buyer and currently the most successful shared drawings.

Experiences with this work includes: unable to do final touch-up because the drawing was accidentally sealed within the frame.

good times at work

Got stuck in an elevator on the 17th floor at work for nearly two hours. Just got home. Have to be back to work in 5.5 hours.

How are you guys doing?

Not that anyone views this blog, still... thought I would ask whomever comes across this.

.004 sketchbook memoirs

Monica Bellucci | 9.5x11" | pencil/graphite on paper
Quick sketch. I think I'm going to come back to this one and make it a portrait.

But I should get back to working on the Eiffel Tower.

Taking a break from the architectural details of the Eiffel Tower, with this 10 minute sketch of Megan Fox.
Yes, I'm slow like that.

Work and detail has slowed progress quite a bit. Patience right?

art. coffee. meditation

Art and coffee on a cloudy Saturday.
I go to bed late, and wake up early. I like to start my day with a cup of coffee, art, and end my day the same way. My form of meditation.

the colosseum

The Colosseum | 10"x8" | ink on watercolor paper

After six months of off-and-on work on this portrait, I can finally say it's complete. And just like that... it was sold. But made affordable, limited prints.

Work in progress a few months back.

 The Colosseum was a challenging drawing, but patience helped produce a rewarding finish, and confidence to challenge myself in the future.

**PRINTS AVAILABLE** 9"x8" mini prints $20 at Society6

Most of the times, I don't like my art, but once it goes on a frame, and on a wall... I get this unexplainable smile accompanied by goosebumps.

newly weds: day three

Newly weds | 9x9" | Color pencil & graphite on paper | In progress: day three
I'm going to be honest with you, I don't know what I'm doing. The more I draw, or try to experiment, the more I see that I need teaching, constructive criticism, someone to tell me what I'm doing wrong, and how to fix it.

I know I can be a lot better at this.
