Can’t decide if this is really dumb or really handy.

Small objects, rainbows, and chroma seem to be the clear favorites.

Merry Christmas friends.

Drove 40min for this β€œlight show”.


Now I have a real camera!
Thanks for all the tips and selling me your camera  @erikannis

This drawing has been in limbo since October, which was the last time I did any real drawing  in the studio cause work/family but I’m feeling this nutty pink plaid- that’ll anchor the top of the drawing.

Working on round two of these objects found while walking outside and then painted with gouache.
No idea where this is going but I did make @_b_crawford a killer set of Christmas ornaments.

Making a second round of each color

December so far. Work trip to Anaheim, introducing quick ink drawings in class, meetings, and the holiday assembly.

Took my class to see @taha_hey and @tiffanyj_art β€˜s studios today. 😍
Of course I loved this part where it feels like a Vija Clemins painting inside a glitchy fern.
Thanks @rootball2000 and @school33artcenter !

End of an era. The last of the #stringtowngrocery sanding sugar used up in holiday baking.

Our ornament collection is almost entirely handmade. My mom made these great felt ones when I was a kid. I’ve made a bunch and of course the little takes after her mom and grandma too.

Zelda’s first Christmas. So far so good with these kittens.

Thank you Anaheim for these awesome tiles.

Disneyland Grand Canyon diorama with projected rainbow.

My tiny seasonal curated online shop is updated for winter! Now through March it’ll feature my gloomy balloon drawings. They are rich, nuanced, and hollow and empty at the same time and would look perfect framed and on you wall in any room.

Follow the link in my profile to see the four I listed this morning.

Lovely fall day studio visit with Matt McConnville and Renee Van der Steldt

Nerding out on this chapter about the RISD Nature Lab while the little dances.

Sketchbook from the last two weeks. My interpretation of #Inktober was to limit myself to black and white for the month- a fun challenge for a color lover like myself.
