I get up at 5:30 AM tomorrow, pick up my traveling buddy, and cruise to NY to be wed.
And it will be blissful.

Illustration Friday: "Jungle"

"Child" by John Bjerk

Longtime friend and all around superman and photoshop mentor, John Bjerk, has an online portfolio showcasing his amazing work in various venues. I worked with John at the BJU Press for several years during my highschool career and most of college.

This piece of his here, I can point to as changing the course of my artwork.

My Portland Kitchen

A sizeable area of the Portland Studios kitchen is now under my direct influence.

A certain amount of materials have been displaced by the recent construction in the front of the studio and the kitchen space bears most of the weight of it.

My aim is to make fantasic use of this space for my work today.

Blue Mino + gouache

weird minotaur painting that suffered during the scan.
