Pet Portrait



Colored pencil pet portrait, 11×14 inches.


Daily UI #2


Here is my Daily UI challenge #2 design, a credit card form. I never tried designing one before, so here it is everyone.

The weekend is almost here, so I’m hoping to finish a couple drawings. Too bad colored pencils are so time consuming, but unfortunately, they’re my favorite!

Fox Drawing Progress!

Here is the progress I’ve made on my fox drawing. He’s getting pretty darn fluffy!!

Tonight Sam and I went to the Christmas parade, it was whimsical. They were throwing subs at people, and there the 1,000,000,000 people dressed as the Grinch.

I hope I can finish this thing soon! I have a pet portrait to finish this weekend, and a whole stack of Daily UI challenges to work on…oops >_<

Daily UI #1 ….and new blog

So, first of all, in case anybody was a huge fan of my old blog (Hello to the 3 people out there), I’m doing an overhaul, and starting from scratch here.

The old one started back in 2007, which is a little bittersweet, and I’ll still let it float around the internet, just not going to be updating it anymore.

As far as art updates for me, I’ve started a daily UI challenge, because my graphic design skills need a little help. The first one is a sushi sign up form.



And here is what I’m up to in the drawing zone….

And…just because I’m so excited about this….I’ve met the most amazing man in the world. I’ve never met someone before who is so passionate, driven, caring, kind, ambitious, sweet, understanding and funny. Life has been a dream since meeting him, and I look forward to every day we have together. 🙂



I think that’s all, I hope you enjoy the new blog!!
