My corgi, Oskar, likes to sleep in strange positions.
Some of us CLAW artists have made prints to sell the whole month of June at Destiny City. For every print sold, we are donating $1 to the Tacoma/Pierce County YWCA! We will also have door prizes and asking attendees to vote on their favorite pieces.
I will be also handing out free coloring sheets! It's a Wonder Woman win-win!
Hope to see you there!
I've been working hard on my latest illustration that I'm producing as a limited edition 11" x 17" print that be available for purchase at the Olympia Comics Festival!
The idea came after I watched the movie Hidden Figures. They kept talking about the "go/no-go" point of getting a ship out of orbit so it could land on Earth. I like to listen to guided meditations and one of my favorite ones talks about the "go/no-go" point in your gut when you know exactly how you feel about a choice or a situation. The way forward on this illustration came together pretty quickly!
The other day our GM ran us through a fun dungeon in the under dark. With his permission, I've tweaked and created my own version of this Dark Tower. For non-commercial use only.
This long forgotten watchtower looks over an abandoned battlefield--can be inserted into any under the dark adventure.

I've been working on a lot of continent maps lately and wanted to mix things up with a town map. As usual, I hand drew everything first, scanned it, and then cleaned it up and colored it in on Photoshop.
I provide my maps free for non-commercial use. Feel free to use them in your games! I love to hear how people use my maps in their games!

I had a great evening this week when I had a chance to explore some of the goodies at The Slater Museum of Natural History at the University of Puget Sound here in Tacoma. I know natural history museums can freak people out a little bit because they are basically full of dead things. But this is how scientists study and learn and by opening the doors to artists, we get a chance to draw something close up we'd otherwise never get to do.
When I walked through the door and saw this magpie, I knew I needed to draw it. I don't get to see many birds this close in person. The delicate feathers were fascinating to try and draw accurately. I mostly gave up on being accurate. Many of the other artists there were painting and drawing very realistic versions. I was impressed with their skill levels.
It was also fun to hang out for a couple of hours with like minded creative types: always a nourishing environment!
I can't get over how beautiful these quail feathers were. I'm looking forward to my next night at the museum!
