Tropical Flower Painting

Tropical Flower Painting

My wife recently redesigned our bedroom so I painted over the old canvas from our old house. She found this embroidered pillow and bought the coral paint based off of that. I used the Bird of Paradise pillow as inspiration for my painting and used some of the wall paint as well.

Pokemon Painting: Mew

Pokemon Painting: Mew

I’m not a painter but I like to try to make the art in my house. My son Ryker has a half Pokemon, half Super Mario room so I asked him what his favorite pokemon are. Mew was the easiest for me and as you can see in the gif, it took me a lot of attempts. I had fun with it, he loves it, and it looks pretty good from a distance :)

My Painting Process. This used to be an unfinished project that had his baby footprint stamped on it.

Squirrel

Squirrel illustration by Derek Mit

I am working on a children's book with my friend Derek Mit. It should be ready to order before the holidays, so save a few bucks for either the print or eBook. I will post the water color art soon.

The Raven

The Raven

I helped create this for my wife, Alyssa. She loves the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe and wanted something based on The Raven. So we shortened the text and used the best parts. I penciled all the lettering and she inked it. Then I drew the raven and grunged up the background and edges. Turned out kinda creepy, so now we have to find a good place to hang it.
