The Real Woman

Several months ago I created a series of work called The Real Man (since turned into a zine).  It was about the juxtaposition of masculine and feminine, making fun of the stereotypes typically forced on men by depicting them and then depicting a parodied version of that stereotype.  Now I am working on a series of Real Women, with the same goal in mind.

Mushroom Forest

Right now I am working on a short graphic novel project with a friend of mine.  We're just getting started with it - this is a color study for the jungle mushroom world that part of the story is set in.

Steampunk Alien

This is my first excursion into oil painting for quite some time.  I'm currently taking a portraiture class, and our first assignment is to take an image (this one was based on several images I photoshopped together) and paint it using the right value (light to dark) but wrong color.

The Chickens

My family has recently adopted several baby chickens.  So cute!  I decided to do a series of chicken 'baby portraits' as a Mothers Day gift for my mom.  The scanned chicken portraits don't show the watercolor wash over it very well, so there is also a photo version.  The pieces were all done with FW acrylic ink and a crow quill pen.
