Believe it or not, the two illustrations below (of Charles Knight paintings) are from a resume/portfolio that I've submitted. We'll see how that turns out soon. But the project provided a good chance for a retrospective of my childhood drawings, which are awesome!

Enjoy...and click to enlarge.

Laser dragons are serious business.

Notice the hilariously sinister weasel.

This makes one of my favorite books...favorite-er.
Note the torpedoes on the sub. They knew what was coming.
Duck bill = obvious affinity for water.

Here are some images from for the Puffin Foundation grant that I've been working on. These are part of a booklet on basic art anatomy.

Click on the veggies for your daily serving of fullsized visual-nutrition. These are the raw (pun!) veggies that I am incorporating into a nutrition poster which was conceived and designed by a friend. Teamwork!

And, speaking of "teamwork". . .

Art fight! .... Well here's the next element to go up on the mural. It's my take on the antics that a couple of disgruntled graffiti artists have dragged us into. These are pretty detailed images (Photoshop screamed and howled at the original file size,) so click through to see how artists argue.

This is spARTa!

Reasons not to create an outdoor mural during a Chicago winter - Vol.2:
-Three weeks of nerve damage in your fingertips
-The community support (as expressed in two instances of vandalism.)
-The glowing reviews from the Chicago Reader

Read all about it ("all" and "it" meaning specifically the story elements that publicly coddle the former artists persona,) on Chicago news-stands today!
