Character sketch for Matthew, of the picture book, The Worst Christmas Ever. Probably the most fun part of telling a story visually is defining what specific characters will look like in context of the story being told.

Autumn Leaves

Having grown up in the Midwest, I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the fall season. This illustration was painted as one of the spreads in the book, The Worst Christmas Ever. Although it never made it into the book, it remains one of my favorites.

Water Polo

Throwing back to the 2016 Olympics — The TV happened to be on while I was looking for something to draw.

If I had a smiling dog I’d name him Happy. I’d feed him cupcakes and Snickers bars — but that’s not a good idea because, Happy, wouldn’t be happy for very long… Maybe I’ll get a goldfish.

Bela Lugosi

I used to watch a show called Creature Features every Saturday night when I was a kid. It aired all the classic black & white horror movies: Dracula, Frankenstien, The Wolfman, The Mummy, etc. I painted this one on my iPad Pro in Procreate.

The Treehouse

If only there was a place I could go to find a little peace and solitude; maybe a cup of coffee and a doughnut… a slice of pizza wouldn’t be bad — I certainly wouldn’t turn down a bacon sandwich. Although, chips and salsa sound awfully good right about now. Hey is it lunchtime yet?

I was thinking about what to sketch when I saw this house in a movie I was watching.

The elusive double cheese, pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, supreme… Never draw while you’re hungry.

Drawing In Procreate

The video time-lapse replay in Procreate is a great way to show your drawing process. I know I’ll be doing this on a regular basis.

My iPad and Me — Or is is my iPad and I?

Either way, Procreate is my new favorite sketching app.

Drawing in Procreate on an iPad Pro

I might have had a little too much fun with this one, got a little caught up in the spirit of things.
