I bought my first computer in '93 after having so many people tell me "my work was just perfect for the computer". Well maybe but the damn thing sat on a desk unused for 6 years untill it was no good to use. For the life of me I just couldn't grasp it. Then in '98 I got introduced to Photoshop and the light went on. I started creating some fun autos. These custom cars were my 'diving in the deep end and learning to swim.' Go over to my new gallery and have a look.

Antiques Roadshow 10th season poster
My relationship with WGBH in Boston spans almost my whole career and last year I worked on the promotion of their tv show Antiques Roadshow. Being a member of AARP qualifies me for just such a job. I created a 24x36 poster commemorating the 10th anniversary as well as a tshirt. In addition there was a postcard announcing the seasons wrap party. Here is the art Right now I am working on a poster and postcard for the 11th season. and will show it after publication.

Doodles at the cusp of consciousness
On the weekends I am a security guard at a local mill complex. I work the graveyard shift and am completly alone from midnight to 8 am. I have lots of time to sit and sketch in my sketchbook. Most times while drawing I nod off only to awake to a black blob bleeding from my pen onto the drawing and some odd lines I don't remember making. Here is last nights. Tonight shall bring another.
Don Knotts
Here is a portrait of Don Knotts as Barney Fife. I did it as part of a larger piece on news events of the year '06 for The Chicago Reader. Mr. Knotts passed away this year I am including the photo reference, my pencil sketch and the finish.
