Something that just needed to be illustrated


I had some time to have some fun. This started as one of my roughs for the Animation Festival Poster. In the end it wasn’t Vermonty enough. I really liked the idea and wanted to see it completed. I also explored some different techniques with the clouds

The Vermont Animation Festival


I just finished the illustration and poster design for the Vermont Animation Festival. It was an honor and a joy to be able to work on this project. I got to work with some of my favorite people and come up with something fun.

For more information you can visit the Vermont Animation Festival web site.

It's National Bow Tie Day!

In honor of National Bow Tie Day I am posting the beginnings of a series of Illustrations. These are more of my Parade of Bow Ties. Each one created will be related to a specific location or type of animal. This is the start of my Vermont Parade of Bow Ties. It involves real or mythical creatures and things that relate to the great state of Vermont. This is something that is coming along slowly when I am not busy with other things.

Seen in the image: Beluga Whale, Rabbit, Loon, Moose, Chipmunk, Blue Heron, Hermit Thrush, Llama, Enfeild, Snowman, Ent, Raccoon.

New Illustrations for Package Design!



Just got a look at my illustrations for the Tucker Turkey Spices packaging. This was something my grandfather created years ago. It was an honor to be able to work on this for my cousin who is carrying on his legacy. My grandfather recently turned 101 years old.

Summer sketching in the Dark



A few sketches from Saturday night’s performance of Newsies at the Vermont Children’s Theater. I was using Procreate so I could better draw in he dark. It is still challenging to draw people while moving. I am working on it.

International Tiger Day


This was one of my explorations of different approaches and when I was doing a lot of tiger studies. I thought I would post it for International Tiger Day.

International Tiger Day “was first celebrated in 2010 and was founded at an international summit that had been called in response to the shocking news that 97% of all wild tigers had disappeared in the last century, with only around 3,000 left alive.” You can find out more about it at Days of the Year or do something by going to https://support.wwf.org.uk/adopt-a-tiger
