Fierce Beard : Vote Soon

I've been putting together some designage (not a word) for my friends at Classic Barbershop. And I decided to upload one of my faves to Threadless T's website and see how it does.

When the time comes, I hope you'll vote for me...It hurts my feelings when you don't.

SOLD: 'Step Before Peace'

Very excited to announce that 'Step Before Peace' has been sold! This one was not easy for me to let go of, ironically it's major theme is about 'letting go.' However, it is on it's way to a very good home and I could not be more delighted.

To see more of my paintings, visit Lansing Art Gallery.

Tiny Tease

Something new is in the works... But it is so new that I can only give you a small taste.

Art of making friends

Worry Doll by Josie age 11
My friend (who's really my sister's friend but I totally stole her to also be my friend because she's awesome) Doreen and her daughters came over to visit last night. This artistic family brought me some goodies from their latest creations.

Her oldest daughter Josie made a 'worry doll' that celebrates Albinism (my daughter's genetic uniqueness). I traded a small tiger drawing for this beautiful little doll and happily added it to my collection of cool stuff.

Doreen, a jewelry artist for Katalyst, hand-crafted this adorable cuff bracelet to fit my scrawny wrist. Not only was it great to catch up with this charismatic family, but I'm also enjoying my new pieces of handmade art!

Wine & Stein Design

My design for this year's Wine & Stein at Potter Park Zoo is a celebration of the mighty Mandrill. They have the best crazy eyes in the whole zoo, so it was time that they received a little of the spot-light.
