Come see me at Monster Drawing Rally TONIGHT!

Tonight is Monster Drawing Rally at the Portland Art Museum for its fifth year of local artists drawing. A hundred local artists will be creating art in one hour slots which will then be immediately available for purchase at $35 each. The proceeds will go towards the museum’s free school and youth programs.

I was on the waitlist for this as of yesterday, when a few slots opened up. Now I’m officially an artist participant! Woo! I’ll be drawing live during the second hour slot (7pm-8pm). The whole event begins at 5:30pm and runs until 9:30pm. I believe there will also be food and drinks available for purchase.

It’s FREE to ATTEND.

Come by, say hi, and pick up some fun art!

Also, here’s the Facebook event page.

Belated MerMay Art

Hello! I did end up doing some MerMay pieces this year, I just forgot to mention it here. This year I did fishy mashups of birds. Specifically, pigeon + fantail goldfish, crow + cabezon, quail + anglerfish, seagull + reef shark, and owl + moray eel.

Announcing, A Very Scalzi Christmas Book

Hey all! I can finally announce the awesome project I worked on earlier this year. I illustrated the cover and interior chapter spots for A Very Scalzi Christmas by John Scalzi, published by Subterranean Press.

I was honored, overjoyed, and felt incredibly lucky to get to work on another project with John and Subpress. It’s always a fun time working with these wonderful folks. This book follows the same format as Miniatures with a delightful collection of very short works of fiction. This time, as you may have surmised from the title, they are Christmas/Christmas adjacent themed.

Pre-orders are up over at Subpress and you can also read the official announcements on the Subpress blog and on John’s blog.


New Stickers! A Poll!

I’m planning on doing some more “team” stickers. My patrons had first choice, but now the poll is open to everyone else! What would you like to see?

Some Fuzzy Sea Fun

On April Fools’, the Monterey Bay Aquarium had a little fun with this tread about a fantastic woolly sunfish.

Of course, if any of you know me, you know this is TOTALLY in my wheelhouse. So, of course I had to jump in and play.

And here is the fluffy snuggle fish in all it’s glory. Thanks to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for the fun times!
