I usually have no idea what I’m going to paint when I pull out my brushes, so I’ve given myself an assignment—to paint portraits of my houseplants. Thankfully my plants are very patient and will sit there and pose as long as I need them to. I’m going to list the original paintings for sale [...]

I just added a couple Easter cards to the shop! I think it probably makes Jesus sad each Easter when we put more emphasis on a basket-wielding bunny than on remembering the sacrifice he made for us. So, I decided to skip the expected bunny card in favor of something with a little more meaning. [...]
I just added a couple new Valentine’s Day cards to the shop—beetles and zombies! The whole lovey lineup is right here.

Here are a few of my most recent sketchbook pages and the process behind my Valentine’s Day card designs. I’m pretty sure I have the sense of humor of a 9 year old boy…
How about a peek at my latest sketchbook shenanigans? I’ve been doing some brainstorming for #5 and #11 on my Twelve by 2012 list.
I recently ordered new shipping stamps. Did you know that standard do not bend stamps don’t say “please”? That’s just terrible! I think saying “please do not bend” will make my envelopes stand out from all the bossy “do not bend” envelopes, and the postal workers will be inclined to handle my packages extra carefully. [...]
