I have been doodling with watercolor crayons and pencils. They have their uses, but I wouldn’t use them for more than doodling at this juncture in my life. I love them – but I have not mastered them. This is my concept for Hoss. If you don’t get the reference, you are too young. Dan […]
There’s a lot to say: I am working on a Statement of Purpose, a working plan, and I am overhauling this webpage. I am also dealing with a broken foot and having to climb the stairs to the loft where my studio and all my art supplies are located. The business plan is forming. I’m […]
(You’ll have to click on the image for a better view – I sketched on tracing paper.) I spend a lot of time in books and searching images on the Interwebs. The ideas I have don’t always match what the animal I choose thinks (they do have opinions!). In the case of the above photo, […]
This is pretty much the state of things here. I have my Kindle and my cell phone, but it takes a huge effort to climb the stairs to the loft where I have my stand alone and all of my art supplies. I will be like this for most of the summer. It sucks for […]

I have been working on a few “tribute” critters. They happen spontaneously. I find an animal I am fascinated by and a composite of photos that I can work from. Then I ask myself if this critter should be: A) just an animal in it’s natural habitat, B) an animal in cosplay: faerie, sci-fi, superhero, […]
I stalled out. I admit it. I hit a wall. I need to update this website and it scares me, even though I have three books on “how to” and I have been assured by friends that it isn’t that hard, especially if you’re even a little bit tech-savvy. I stalled out because I got […]
My most recent minis have all been dogs. Doesn’t this guy just scream, “POPEYE!” Ahoy there, Popeye Dog! This brindle Skye Terrier just cries out to be Sherlock Holmes. And this Irish wolfhound?
