This is a project I did recently for a client. The idea came from some illustrations I did when I was in Germany of women with castles on their heads and villages in their clothes. I thought it would be cool to use this whimsical technique to incorporate a person’s interests into their portrait. My client’s wife, whom I was doing the portrait of, just graduated from the University of Washington and is going to be consulting developing countries on their marine policies, this being a major part of her life it is the main theme of the portrait. She also adores her dog, and is from Kenya, so I included a mini portrait of her dog and adorned her with jewelry from Kenya.
Seth built a beautiful custom frame to go with the painting. I believe it was out of African Mohagony. I am really pleased with the end result!
This year my mom and I are going to be participating in the Alzheimers Association Memory Walk. My Grandpa has been suffering from this horrible disease for the past several years and our whole family is feeling it’s effects. As part of our team’s fund raising efforts we are putting on a spaghetti feed. Entry by donation, all proceeds going to the 2010 Memory Walk.

This is a business logo I designed for my dad’s upcoming website bestdealsontents.com. I think the name says it all. So, if you find yourself in need of a tent, check it out!
Two sweet little puppies I had the pleasure of painting this past week. Oil paint on maple.
Once every two months I do a little comic for Pet Connection Magazine. Usually about dogs. Which is funny, since I don’t actually have a dog. I have cats. But when it comes to personality and comedic timing, I just find the K9 community a bit more inspiring.
I just thought I’d share this little painting I did for someone who couldn’t wait for my current show to come down in June. I really am very pleased with how it turned out!
I just recently started working on a series of comics for the Pet Connection Magazine. This is a new venture for me and I am having a blast!
