Sketching with Marker

This sketch was meant as a practice sketch for a painting that I have been meaning to do for some time. I took out my Tombow markers for it, which I don’t use too often. They are fun to work with as they have both a brush and fine line tip and I have about […]

Keeping Busy

I’ve had a lot of alone time on my hands these days. A lot of time without Internet or TV or movies. Naturally I’ve been feeling a bit closed off from the world. I should be getting “connected” again soon though, which will be nice. I’ve been really needing a mental break, so I am […]

My Purple Room

I’ve been spending a lot of time in this room lately and I’ve gotten it cleaned out enough to show you all a picture. Like I said earlier, the purple walls aren’t my favorite, but I really didn’t feel like painting them right now. And I am so excited to have my own space at […]

Central Park, September 2010 Virtual Paintout

Teapot on Trivet

With this drawing I was mainly testing out how graphite and watersoluble colored pencils look together.

I am craving a neat house — I’m still working on that right now. Please excuse the slow posting these days. I am working on drawings, but I am on a bit of an internet hiatus.

Portrait, in progress

Some time ago I wrote that I was working on a “secret drawing” and that I was scanning it in as I worked. It has taken me longer than I had anticipated because of all the other things I have going on right now. I then lost the will to keep it a secret so […]

High Productivity

This is a sketch I made of the ocean at low tide when I was visiting Ogunquit, Maine a few weeks ago. It was a nice mid week mini-trip and I took lots of reference photos. I will most likely start working from these when I finish the big drawing that I am working on […]
