About Me

My photo
A little about my artwork: I interpret the words written on a page by telling the story behind the story working with pen and ink, watercolor and Photoshop, I fuse old techniques with modern ones to create a world that every drawing can speak to a child or grownups.

"Struggling with what to illustrate?
Try this: Start with a CHAIR. What kind is it? Where is it? Who uses it? Why? Build from there.…"

Raven Found a Lunch

 
I have been documenting on twitter the process of "Raven found a Lunch"
It's how I work as an artist from sketch to finish artwork.
 I thought it would be nice to have it all in one blog post
 
 
mumble...curse, ERASE!!! more mumbling... "Everything okay?" Yep
 
Watching ink dry :)
I work with Waterproof India ink I usually start with a wash of ink before watercolor is added.
 
 Watching watercolor dry
 
Still have time to F this up ;)
This is the stage that I could take the illustration too far and ruin it or not far enough.
 
Not this time
