Pipe pattern

A pattern I did because pipes interest me. This came out pretty alright, even though I had a crummy day. I hope to keep making as many patterns as possible during my teaching practicum, although it is a lot of work so I don't know how well it will go. I also hope to do some more portraits, although that is what put me in the crummy mood in the first place so we'll see how that goes too.

Chemistry Pattern

This one is a little more complicated, I wanted to do something that wasn't just two interlocking shapes.

Sword Pattern

In keeping with my pattern stint, I decided to do some swords and shields. I'm really just doing things that pop into my head, which is why the subject matter is all over the place.

Vampire Pattern

A vampire pattern I did in Illustrator. I should clarify that I like Dracula and Nosferatu, not twilight.

Pattern 1

Skulls and bones pattern I did in Illustrator. I really enjoy doing patterns, they're a nice diversion from realism.

Turtle Logo

A logo I did in Illustrator

Self Portrait

I haven't done very much realistic painting so I decided to try it out.


A couple of lizard pieces I did. Ink on Bristol

Book Illustrations 2

More from the same series

Book Illustrations

This series was done for a friend. The Illustrations were meant to resemble a more primitive woodcut look. They were done with ink on rives heavyweight paper.


These were some flowers in a very nice garden near Beverly.


This series was pretty fun as well. I did a lot of drawing from life over the summer, I find it makes the pieces more natural.


These are just some studies I did of my roommates cat in ink. Around this time I started to try not sketching and going straight in with the ink. The result was fun, and spontaneous.

Fish Series

This is a watercolor series I did, also following the three piece format.

Dog Series

So I haven't posted anything in a Looong time, but I suspect not many people follow me anyway so it probably doesn't matter. I have done a fair amount of work this summer, in both traditional and digital mediums. This piece is ink, one of a series of threes I was doing. I find that making three pieces at a time keeps me interested, and also produces a good amount of work.

invisible man

cover for the invisible man I did for digital illustration


quick drawing of the view off a deck


some bird studies



Did these in my digital class. I liked how they turned out, especially since I hated illustrator at first. Sorry about the weird proportions on them, for some reason the files don't agree with my computer.

senior show

did these all at once just for a few extra pieces in my senior show

color test

Just a few quick things I did whilst messing with color

natural science sketches

oh look at that, I guess I can upload more than one image at a time...silly me, that concludes the sketches for now
