A Recent painting done in October 2013. A practice piece in acrylics on canvas board of Yoda from “The Empire Strikes Back”. What I am proudest of with this piece is that I used no black while painting this. Acrylic on Canvas Board

A personal kaiju or giant monster design on mine, I imagine this as a giant creature with the body of a sea turtle and a coconut crab and the legs of a crab or something like it. Pencil and India ink and colored with gouache on Bristol paper.

Gouache colored thumbnails for a greeting card design. This is one of a few renderings in my sketchbook that made me decide to start coloring my thumbnails, since then I have gone back and colored previous renderings and have colored them ever since.

This was a study done for an assignment, I had to conduct some research on the Dodo bird and it's likeness because in my thumbnails each time I drew the bird it looked like a turkey. This helped solidify the attributes of the bird in my mind for the final assignment.

This drawing of a male Gorilla was done in pencil and ballpoint pen. This study was simply an exercise for my own amusement. I have been told that this is one of my best pieces in my sketchbook to date.

A ball-point sketch of a tiger.

An ink and wash sketch of Miranda Kerr.

An ink sketch of the Creature from the Black Lagoon that was eventually sold.
