Go out and enjoy the day and the freedom we take for granted!  Thanks to all of our service men and women who risk their lives to keep America safe and strong.

Ending the Year on a High Note

Newsweek\'s Namecalling Neoliberal This piece for Extra! Magazine (I think it’s for their January 2010 issue,) started out a bit troublesome, but I was thrilled to see how it ended.

A tip of the hat to those who hired me in 2009.  My hopes are 2010 will give me the opportunity to work with many new faces. I am excited to see what the new year will bring!

Happy New Year!

Here’s the latest cover I did for Extra! Magazine.  I just love working for them & Deborah in particular.  I never have to guess at what they are looking for.  These Extra! pieces are always a lot of fun!  Keep um coming!

Urban Tulsa Weekly

Top Tulsa ChefsI’m pretty sure this one comes out this week.  This was not one of my easiest pieces.  I generally get approval to move to the final after a sketch, maybe a few tweaks, but this one had 4 sketches before it was ultimatley decided that we would use my inital favorite.  All in all, I think it ended up ok.  I am really happy with the final colors.  I have found that the more I end up changing a piece the less I tend to like the final.  I wonder if this happens to other artists…

A busy few weeks!

Bush Says Farewell

It’s been a busy couple of weeks with two new pieces for Fort Worth Weekly, another piece for Spokane Metro and the beginnings of a new one for Urban Tulsa Weekly!  Loving it!

I am planning on taking the evening off however for a much needed break!  The kids have been sick so being nursemaid on top of Administrative Assistant, on top of illustrator has left me feeling a tad bit exhausted.  One evening to recoop is doable I think…

Well here is the 1st piece I did for new client Fort Worth Weekly.
