Shiny new ideas for a shiny new year


Hi! I know… it’s been a while. I’ve been a bit distracted from regular posting due to a chaotic December followed by a an influx of shiny new project ideas.

Soon, I hope to share artwork from a new graphic novel project and a freelance logo project I’m working on. Right now I’m knee-deep in concepts that simply aren’t ready show yet. So instead, I’m getting back on the blog wagon with a blast from the past. This is a piece I did 6-ish years ago. I guess you could call it a surreal, abstract, mixed-media piece. I used markers, pens and pencil.

As a result of my shiny new idea syndrome, my NaNoWriMo novel will be marinating for a while – which I think is ok. I’m hoping it’ll give me a fresh perspective when I return to it. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to sharing my new projects as they come to fruition.

Happy belated 2016!  I hope your creative projects – new and old – are evolving in exciting new ways.

Perception vs Reality – 24″ x 24″ acrylic on canvas


Back in January of this year, I finished this earth-tone, surrealism-inspired canvas. The idea behind the piece is our perception of the world around us versus other people’s perceptions and the way our environment and other people influence our view.

I primarily used acrylics, but also used fine-art markers and spray paint.
