Here’s a recent drawing I just finished. I haven’t added any drawings in a while so I thought I’d add this one. It’s called “Gravity”. It’s on 18″ x 24″ drawing paper. The paper is more meant for dry media but I think it works well for pen and ink.
I wanted the drawing to have this swooping, continuous line that the eyes could follow and imagine what goes on after the paper ends.
I’ve added some new drawings to my website.

I want a warm summer day, some iced tea in a little glass bottle, my girlfriend sitting next to me, and my sketch book with a few (100 or so) markers. All of this, of course taking place outside, underneath the shade of a tree.
What the hell is all of this cold stuff?
I love llamas, they’re cool animals. This is a drawing I did of a llama. I used some markers with a paintbrush tip for the colors and my fine tip markers for all of the details. I’m considering doing more using this llama. Actually, I drew a template image first and then traced the outline (I was thinking that I’d want to draw more llamas in the future)
This is a piece I am working on. I had this photo that I took of one of my favorite places (Green Lakes State Park) and I wanted to experiment with it. What I did initially was split the photo into 3 segments (and created layers for each segment). I used Paint.NET for the image manipulations. Paint.NET is a very basic editor, not anywhere near as sophisticated as Photoshop. But I chose to use it for its simplicity and price.
Each of these pieces shows a part of the original image, obscured with a color, and a large block (or blocks for the center one) of color. The color space is used to show that there is more to the image than just the segment provided in the piece. For each piece, there are two other parts that are missing (from the original photo). I wanted to use bright, solid colors to give an otherwise natural photograph (it’s an image of a tree) an artificial and over-celebrated look. The solid colors provide a stark contrast to the nature of the segment highlighted in each piece.
Thank you for viewing!
