Circle of Circles.  A simple template of circles that I'm filling repeatedly with the classic rainbow pencil - 4 color lead; red, yellow, green and blue.  Each composition is dependent upon the amount of each color in the pencils' irregular lead and however the pencil is sharpened.

Flock to get Hooked

 Bomb it.  The newest art installation:  a legal stencil.

 Commissioned by Hooked on Colfax Cafe (3213 E. Colfax Ave.) owners Scott and Malissa Spero, this new flock joins the neighborhood hooked on the warmth and affection of the baristas and coffee.

happy birthday to my sister and to me

I didn't put this post up on my birthday because... well, I had to send Erin's gift to her before I could exploit it on my blog! So, back to some of my drawing roots, I made a drawing for my twin sister that (I think) speaks to her soul (and frankly speaks to mine too).

Erin's always had a fondness for the complex and beautiful celtic knots, so I bit the bullet and figured one out. Saturn finds a place in the work because we're 28 this year - Saturn's orbit is 28 years long. So, here we are again, Erin - two fish swimming to find our place in the world; two birds in free flight toward the stars. I should mention that Erin always loved raccoons when we were children, so inevitably, I love them too. The curious face, turns to see what is.
