Welcome to all the new folks who have joined my journey this year! I hope I will create images that inspire and delight you.

What’s New –

The web site is going through a major overhaul with a simpler new look and feel.

I have decided to handle all sales directly rather than use online shopping platforms and have ceased all online marketing. The reasoning behind these decisions was simple – they did not work.

Besides this website I will continue to share all new work on Facebook for friends and colleagues.

What’s on the agenda for 2018?

A Legacy of Forgotten Names – Documentary Film in production

Illuminated Animals – Pen & Ink Drawing Collection – ongoing

More making-of videos – ongoing

Re-Issuing Print Publication of my Children’s Book, WillowMouse

Several other ideas that are a bit too nebulous to mention at this time.

As always – I am grateful to have you join me on this adventure!

Until next time …

Letting My Imagination Run Wild

Secret Society of Pen and Ink Illustrators

Tonight I was thinking – what if there were Secret Societies for Artists much like the Illuminati, who passed down their knowledge and closely guarded secrets from one generation to the next? What would their seal look like? What would their secrets be? How would one become a member? Just imagine having the inner working knowledge of illustrators from the Golden Age (1880’s to 1920’s) or even before that! How they mixed their inks and fashioned their pens. What was their work ethic? How did they define aesthetic arrest?

Anyway – I had so much fun doing this – I just looked-up at the clock and it’s nearly 4:00AM!
