Cafe Bustelo

Always drinking coffee for energy to draw,
'Cause having a big fam'ly leaves no energy at all.
So I brew my Café Bustelo for caffeinated wings,
And fly away with my Moleskine to draw important things!

Cafe Bustelo (sketch)


Dwellings CD Cover - Front

Illustration for Dwellings band CD cover. It's my favorite piece I've ever done, and with that I'm retiring from digital color... Going forward it's all about Moleskine and Watercolor. Back to the basics!


Pirate Ship (color)

My wife home schools our 3 boys. (Secular.) This will be 13x19 on the wall. Each boy has a marker and moves closer to rewards up top or toward the plank and into the monster's mouth depending on behavior.


Swimming with the Fish

Silly little people sitting happy on the edge,
With no one being careful - one's bound to fall off the ledge.
I'll hedge my bets and say the first to fall is red-hat Jim,
And that could be a tragedy 'cause Jim can't even swim.

So he sat there with that dumb grin 'til he slipped and fell right in,
To his surprise & quick demise that's when he found out something grim...
Those so-called friends were quick to laugh but slow to rescue him,
Jim's last thought was "With friends like that, one needs gills and maybe fins."


Aquarium Sketch

I expect color & value to bring some sense to this line work. Drawn with my Pilot Falcon SEF and Platinum 3776 Century UEF.


New drawing, Pirate Ship

First drawing with my new Platinum 3776 Century fountain pen. It's great for line art - the pen's a keeper!
