Updated WebSite is Now Live!


At the beginning of the year I set a number of goals with regards to illustration work. Freshening up my web site was one of them. Over the past two weeks, I have been working on updating my web page. It now matches the brand I created a year ago and has more recent work. There will be more to come!

I welcome any feedback and thoughts. This is an exciting time for me with some new projects on the horizon.

You can see the site at barclay-studio.com

The Vermonotaur


The Vermonotaur (vərˈmän ə tôr)

This is a personal project I have been slowly finding the time to work on over the last few months. It has had a slow evolution from concept to bow tie guy to a full illustration.

The Vermonotaur is an ancient creature that roams the forests of Vermont. Part man part moose, this docile creature secretly helps the sugarer by checking taps and collecting sap.

Cambodia Sketch


This last February I had the incredible opportunity to visit Cambodia for research on a project I am working on and to take a group of students in a sketching class. Today, I gave a presentation on the trip, showing my photography and sketches. This is the first of over 50 pages of my sketches. This is of the Temple Banan just outside of Battambang. The woman was sweeping leaves away form the temple.

And Now For Something Completely Different


For the ART Squared Exhibit I like to explore other artistic venues. Last week as I was walking to my office, I was struck by the simple beauty of the light and shadows on the floor. The work is now hanging in the exhibit.
