crate project - assembly required







the last two images are of the lid that I'm going to nail to the top. The pocket-watch painting is was done on board and then cut out. It's going to hang from the little frame in the the center of the lid and swing back and forth so that when you look through the handle/opening of the crate, you become "hypnotized". Lame? I'm not sure either.

postcard




A post card I sent to J.T. Steiny. Send him mail, he loves it.

from my sketchbook

website in the works

hello, hello,

I haven't updated this in a while but I'm on vacation right now, and I must admit that I haven't been very productive. However, I have started to get a website together to showcase my portfolio. It's just a welcome page right now but if you're interested click on the icon below:

an editorial piece



This long and narrow piece was done for an editorial assignment, my concept was basically about moving up in the world. It only took a couple hours because of the simple style. I plan to touch it up in photoshop, cuz it's going to print.

The photo's a bit blurry, but you get the picture. It will be split into three groups to make three postcards/mailers. I think it'll be cool.

more works in progress

aproximately 10 seconds later I spilled matte medium all over this couch. The pinkish oval panel on the left is for my "queen."



Gold leafing!

Here's the finish of the last one I was working on and some new works in progress. The bottom will be the "queen" of my little demented ladies.
