series of four ink drawings i made for an event a couple months ago, but just got around to scanning. they're supposed to be sad, but somehow in the (frantic, last minute) process they ended up bright pink, which i realize sort of undermines the haunting, mournful mood i was going for. oh well. i really like pink a lot. =)

thumbnail links to the images (and accompanying emo-poem about the conflict between origin and destination) at my website gallery.

For the last few months i've been sitting in on the interview tapings for the radio show American Country Countdown, then doing pen-and-ink drawings from my on-site sketches. Here's a new batch!

I've been making an effort to get better at likeness recently, in response to feedback from portfolio drop-offs. these are a few attempts at portraits. thumbnail images link to the illustrations at my website.

i made this for a show at the Burien Art Gallery in Washington. nine layered panels (sort of) tell a weird little original fairytale about a frog prince, and his sister's adventures in home-surgery. my current personal project is adapting it as a graphic novel =)

it's my second carousel book ever (the first being a loving tribute to doctor who). this time i sewed the various layers together at the foredges, rather than gluing them, and i think it worked better. the images are ink+brush and rapidograph pen directly onto the paper, bc i have limited access to printmaking equipment, and i've been using nib-pen for everything recently and am sick of it.
