design number 2


now available at john's tex-mex!

series!

i just wanted to impart unto you the fact that i'm in the beginning stages of making a very exciting series. i will be illustrating twelve of the most endangered animals in north america, and i am so excited! if anyone has any preference of animal, tell me! i think i have narrowed down a fair part of the list:
-blue whale
-red fox
-black-footed ferret
-california condor
-sea otter
-wolverine
-gila monster
-volcano rabbit
-vaquita
-chiapan climbing rat
-...
-...
i am still have a little bit of a hard time thinking of amphibious/reptilian animals, and i wouldn't mind another bird. if anyone thinks of something, clue me in!

i am really looking forward to doing other continents in the future. that will give me even more of an excuse to finally draw the world's cutest animal:

sketches on my wall

painting for sara (in-progress)


here's a painting that i am currently working on for my dear co-worker, sara. it's such a simple painting, but it has been causing me lots of block. the detail photo i took didn't really show the background, so i took out the color via photoshop. i better finish it soon so i get to start wearing the gorgeous garnet/labradorite bracelet she made me in exchange! soon, sara, SOON!
let me know if you want me to stick with the red/orange/soon to be added purple palette, or if you want me to veer towards a cooler palette.

disgruntled wegmans customer


this lay-dee was awesome. i wish i could have given her a hug as she grumpily sat and waited.
the scan looks dirty thanks to my attempts at frugality (aka drawing on both sides of thin sketchbook paper).
