Blast from the past!


I did this black and white illustration back in the late 1980s for a client. Just ran across it and thought I'd share...

Super Alphabet... T-Shirts!!



I finally finished all of the Super Alphabet. Now it is available as a T-Shirt on both "Zazzle" and "RedBubble" websites! There is also the first poster version available on "ImageKind" website. All of these versions have no background art to mess with the viewing of the letters but the next version of the poster and T-shirts will have full color backgrounds. I'm also working on backgrounds for each individual letter for the book version. Help out a fellow artist and leave comments on a site that you visit. Thank you in advance.

Rocket Ship!


I rarely post photos on my blog but today is an exception.
I was at brunch with some friends (Jamie, David and Doni) who I used to work with at Microsoft this morning at Stopsky's Deli on Mercer Island. When asking for a latte they asked me if I wanted a certain type of art in the foam on top like a heart or something. I said I didn't want a heart but if they could make a rocket ship instead, that would be very cool.
And guess what? That's exactly what I got in my coffee. It was totally awesome and here's the picture of it! Thanks to David who took the picture on his cell phone!

Stopsky's del is awesome!!

RedBubble Feature the day before Father's day.



RedBubble was kind enough to feature my "Marbles on 3rd Street" painting on Saturday. It is an honor. I hope it brings more people to the site and to buy art. I know it's tough times out there and people have little money to spend on something other then the basics but artists suffer too. So if you have some time, drop by the site and leave an encouraging comment.
Thank you.

June 2011 NEW promo postcard...



Hey gang, this is what I'm sending out for this quarter to potential clients. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one. Postcards haven't been bringing in the jobs like they used to and I'm trying to figure out what to do next but for now these will have to do.
Wish me luck!
