I thought it would be interesting to give you all a little behind the scenes look at how I do some of my work. What seemed like the perfect opportunity occurred when I was working on a page I recently completed for my book. I can't show you the whole page, but I've chosen a closeup of the detail of the rug(and kitty coincidently).
First, I work up the final sketch, as follows.

Most people who know me know that I love Predator. And Alien and Mad Max, etc. But Predator is especially awesome. And I have some big plans for him, when I find the time. This painting is what I hope is just a precursor for some serious awesomeness to come.

Urban Threads, an online company, asked me to be their feature artist for the month of March. They took my friendly little cupcake design and turned it into a machine embroidery piece that you can buy on their site. Plus, they've posted a nice little bio about me and included links to my sites. Check em' out! Urban Threads

This is a wedding present I made for my friends Geoff and Karen recently. Geoff crashed with me one summer in college. I pretty sure the only time I witnessed him do any laundry those few months was the week before Karen came to visit. This smelly sock monkey is in honor of him.
