10 months of work to get the drawings ready for this deck. I think it turned out great. Thanks to Inkstone Design, Inc. for selecting me for the illustrations.

New cartoons from a recent show

Some characters I created while at the Christmas art show at the local University. It’s fun to create exaggerated features based on a brief glimpse of a person.

Yellowstone Drawing Workshop June 2010!

I’m excited to announce the return of Mike Sibley (my friend and mentor) to Yellowstone for a drawing workshop in June of next year. Some details include:

Dates:       12th -17th June 2011
Duration:  6 days, 10 am to 5 pm
Location:  Holiday Inn, West Yellowstone, Montana

  • Illustrated talk by a Park Ranger so we know what to expect and look out for during our visit to…
  • A full day in the Park with assistance on photography, taking that unusual but useful shot, and looking for elements that can be combined into a useful setting. And we provide transport and lunch.
  • Improve your photography – late afternoon sessions by talented Artist and Photographer Rich Adams beginning with the basic uses of compact cameras.
  • Visits to the nearby Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center to get those photographs that eluded you in the Park.
  • Five days of uninterrupted drawing covering drawing from the basics up to advanced.
  • AND all tools and paper will be provided. Just bring yourself.
To find more details and to sign up for the workshop, please head on over to Mike’s website:
This workshop is limited to just 25 artists to ensure individual attention, so head over now to the workshop page and fill in the “Keep Me Informed” details to make certain of receiving the newsletters.
I’ll be posting more details on the workshop and what to expect as an attendee over the winter.
I hope to see you there!
