A few people have requested it, so I decided to make my quail painting from a couple months back into a print. It's 5x7, making it easy to frame, and printed on premium matte paper with archival inks.

Recently added a few new hats to the shop. We’re finally getting a few colder days here in LA. I’m still planning on retiring my knitting needles for good at the end of this year. For now, I’ll still be making things until the yarn runs out.

Sometimes when I get stuck on what I should paint, I revisit old ideas. I thought about how popular my dumpling pieces for Grumpy Bert's Red Envelope Show were and decided to do a different version of them. The pieces from the show sold and no prints will be made from them, so I thought this newer variation would be great for anyone who wants to own a similar piece.

I've kinda been obsessed with mice lately. I've been putting the little guys in almost every one of my drawings. I think a lot of has to do with feeling small. So, often times, I'll depict the mouse being helpful or kind to others. I think even the smallest acts of kindness can make a huge difference in someone's day.
So here's a little mouse bringing his lion friend a little luck, because we can all use a little luck sometimes.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I've been working on some new ceramics for the shop. Working with clay has been an old love of mine, but due to lack of resources I haven't been able to do it for a while. But now I have access to my friend's tiny studio, so I'll be making more new stuff soon. The first of many new ceramics to come is this Puppy Face Dish. Available in the shop now!

Here's a sneak peek at one of my new pieces for Co-LAb Gallery's one-year anniversary show, Hey Ladies. The show opens next Saturday, February 27th 7–10pm. So if you're in the LA area, stop by!
I also plan on giving this blog a little bit of a long-overdue makeover. It's time for a new look.

One of the things that has been on my to-do list for a while has been re-doing my Hello Hotcakes card. It was one of my favorite cards in my shop but I wasn’t happy with the image quality. I learned very quickly that colored pencil doesn’t really scan all that well. As you can see below…
I still have quite a bit of work to do on it, including the final lettering and final line drawing that will give it structure.
