I’m on YouTube now. I have been for a long time, but I actually started a channel for uploading art videos, and uploaded a time-lapse video of drawing last week.
I’m working on my second upload now, which should be posted today, tomorrow, or the next day. I’m hoping to post about one video per week, sometimes older drawings, sometimes brand new things.

Sunday, August 25th I’m inviting collectors, artists and friends to join me in an afternoon of food, drink, friends, and art. Work from 20+ years will be on view and available for purchase: prints, drawings, sketchbooks, paintings, mixed media. The event is at a private location in Claremont, CA. If you’re interested in attending please email me, there are a limited number of spots available.
Last week while doing dishes I sliced between my pinky and ring fingers of my right hand pretty deep. It’s been bandaged and healing but for a bit it was very frustrating to draw. This drawing was a bit painful to create and I think expresses some of the pain and frustration.
drawing: pencil outlines get inked, followed by colored pencil and then intricate ink details last. There are some times when I don’t sketch the idea out in pencil first, but lately I have. It takes a little longer, but it’s easier to see where one thing will go under or over another.
