Sometimes you feel like your own art~

I was sorting through some old art scans this morning and came upon this drawing I made a few years ago. Somehow it seems appropriate for how I’ve been feeling these past few months. It’s not as dreary a palette as one of those Goya grotesques, and a bit more humorous with the character’s empty pockets, but the protagonists shares a similar dearth. Enjoy! I’m looking forward very much to its antithesis, with an ecstatic theme soon~

Kentucky Derby artwork is here!

The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow and as trainers, jockeys, owners and horses are making their final preparations, I’ve been busy putting together this year’s Derby chart for your perusal. With the exception of “Hoppertunity” who was a late scratch (noted on the artwork) , make your picks from this poster and you can’t go wrong. Is there anything to read in their postures and expressions? We’ll see soon! The poster is up at America’s Best Racing and also available as a print on my Etsy store. Enjoy!

Work for Hire~

I don’t often do work for hire, but occasionally someone who likes my drawing style will ask me to do a piece for them, based on work I’ve already made. This art was made for a business card for a woodworker/carpenter who admired my work. The idea was his, interpreted in my drawing style. I think it turned out well; I like the character’s dreamy and mischievous  look.
