Reading with the Kiddos

July 14, 2016 — 1 Comment

It’s been a lot of fun to be part of the inaugural “Books and Music” summer series event at SwitchBack Coffee Roasters. I was invited to design the poster and participate in the event. Today I got to read the two children’s books I illustrated to a group of local kids, and leave behind some coloring pages.

Latest project: Designed and illustrated a promotional poster for the local “Books & Music” event here in Colorado Springs. Geared towards PreK to Elementary kids and their families, the 1-hour program includes dramatic reading of children’s books, followed by a local musician playing kid-friendly songs. The event is presented by SwitchBack Coffee Roasters and Pikes Peak Library District’s mobile library.books-and-music-poster1

Yeah, it’s only six months late—my caricature for a friend and climbing buddy. Daron bagged the last of Colorado’s 54 14ers on his 30th Birthday!

The Wellington

December 16, 2014 — 1 Comment

The Wellington pub located in Strand London, just across the north end of Waterloo Bridge. I saw this wonderful bit of architecture on my trip last April, but didn’t have time to capture it in my travel sketchbook. I finally made the time this evening to work up this loose sketch. A departure from my “normal” art, the exercise was cathartic, and a much needed retreat this week.

Here’s something I pulled from the art school vault for Throwback Thursday . . . a colored pencil drawing from my time at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
