Who's that casting devious stares in my direction?

Actually, she was just looking at the laptop sitting in front of her.

Four and Twenty

Ladies in a pie... what's more to say?


Detail shots below, click to enlarge













I had the girls and the pie drawn from the beginning but I had some trouble figuring out what the background was going to be. I eventually decided on the branches because of how they bring out the nest like feeling of the pie, multiplying the different meanings and associations that the viewer can pull out of this.

New Header

While I've been playing around with digitally coloring my sketches I decided to finally make a title image for the blog. I used the last sketch from this batch on the left side and drew some whiplashy things for the background. A little play time in photoshop, and there it is!

I recently took a ferry ride to see some of the galleries on Martha's Vineyard. It was a fun little day trip and I got a chance to draw a few of the elderly folks that also happened to be on the ferry. This guy above looked like he could have been me in about 40 years.
This is Phil from Arizona, on the ferry with his wife, Norma. They looked like they were enjoying their vacation. They must have been on some kind of organized tour because they arrived at the ferry with a whole bus load of other elderly folks.
