The second skateboard deck design I’ve done (first here), this was another board given to me by Zories Flip Flops & Beachwear that I started and finished at an event. I wanted to push my skills and the medium a bit farther than before, and I think this piece turned out pretty well. The design […]
I got it into my head to do a drawing of a witch. But I wanted to push the idea a bit further than a sexy girl in a pointed hat. I also intended it as an image for my growing selection of religious candles. I enjoyed (perhaps not the right word, but close) depicting […]
I finally got around to doing a full length poster of the knife thrower from my music-inspired “If This Hat is Missing…” piece, which completes the series I had done of all the thrower’s girls. The process was basically the same as the others (which I had to go back and re-learn to refresh my […]
