In 2017 I participated in the 100 Days Project and drew 100 drawings in 100 days. This is a selection of some of those drawings. I am currently running a Kickstarter to help print a book of the drawings.
The Incongruities were a series of gently absurd creature paintings, initially created one per day during the course of a month. Once the month was complete I found myself returning to the theme again and again and series grew. This is a sample of the illustrations.
This project was born from the Inktober initiative which encourages artists to improve their inking skills. Acting on a suggestion from my brother, I started drawing animals at work every day for the month of October. To increase the challenge, the work was all old-fashioned and the animals were alphabetical and started with the same letter as their occupation. The project developed beautifully and in December 2016 I released a limited edition book of the drawings. It is available at my Etsy.
While most of my whimsical work falls into the Incongruities series, I have a few paintings that are of a similar feel but not quite in the series. This work is a mix of digital painting, watercolor, and oil.
This is a series imagining dragons hanging out in Portland. These works have been exhibited at Just for Geeks and Giggles 2014, at Fleeting States Gallery in Portland, OR; featured on io9; and were sold for a time at Powells Books in Portland. The Dragon of Union Station has been awarded both Director's Choice and Judges' Choice ribbons at WesterCon 69 Art Show in 2016.
