These are some cute little clay circles I painted with underglazes. Getting ready to fix the paints in the kiln. Once they are fixed, I’ll glaze them and refire. These were alot of fun to make. My vision is to adhere ring backs to them and make some cute girlie muse rings. A super power […]
I worked on some ceramic tile magnets last night while watching TV. These small items are perfect to work on when I want to chill, but feel like doodling. The size is about 1.75 X 1.75. They’ll need to be glazed and fired.
Here are the set of 6 illustrations for the Seafood Festival website and print material. I am so glad I am done as it was a pretty large job. I am now recovering from a bad case of arm strain and carpal tunnel! lol.
Here’s the logo for the Pittsburg Seafood Festival I just sent out to the client for approval. Art is colored with pencil crayons and washed with odorless turpentine. It’s been awhile since I’ve used this technique as there seems to be more interest in the patterned ink illustrations I’m doing right now. I forgot how […]
This is the revised sketch for the Pittsburg Seafood Festival logo I am creating for this year’s celebration. It incorporates a lot of elements from the downtown area and specific items from the festival. Just waiting for approval before I do the final drawing and color it. Then the type will need to be added. […]

4 more Copic ATC doodles just completed. I’m going to work on a line of illustrations for note cards (Celebrate, Thanks etc.) Celebrate is the first.
Here’s my final illustration for the San Joaquin County Fair on one of the covers of the publications. It’s cool to see it complete with all the type on it.
I am making progress on the illustration. I have all the painting in. I’ve been working on it most of the morning while watching Wife Swap and Most Haunted. (Love that trash TV. *lol*) Now have to go back and build up the color in some places and add all the highlights and accents. The […]
Here’s my in-progress illustration for the San Joaquin County Fair for a friend of mine. I have all the lines inked in and ready to paint. There’s room for a masthead at the top and once painted and scanned the Fair logo and other info will be dropped in in Photoshop. I always scan at […]
I had to turn on moderation on messages due to some very annoying spammers. Sorry guys. Spammers suck.
I got a couple Copic markers recently and I was playing around with the brush end of them. (The Copic markers have two ends, one soft and fluid like a brush and the other chiseled and hard.) I like the way the brush allows a thick and thin line depending on how much pressure you […]
Here’s a set of ATCs I recently finished. All are finally colored in. Pictured are a couple journal cards, some new skellies and a flaming heart. All ATCs are drawn with ink and then colored with watercolors.
Just listed a Day of the Dead skull ATC on eBay. This is a hand colored linoleum block print. I carved the block, printed it and then went back in with watercolors.
A Way to Use Old Christmas Cards in Your ArtworkI recently took down a stack of Christmas cards. There are so many neat papers, foils and textures on the cards I hate to throw them away. Every year I go through each card and trim off the prettiest parts of the cards and throw them […]
First post of the year. I’ve been busy, what can I say. 🙂 These are a couple photos of my work that is in a gallery boutique in Campbell, CA. I’ve been there about a month and stopping over tomorrow to restock. There are alot of great artists displaying. From glass, to cards and jewelry. […]
