What a beautiful set of pieces. Despite the change in time, your color palette complements in both pieces, making it logical and impact...

Great use of line. That's sometimes difficult with acrylics. I also love your composition sensibilities and color palette. Very holisti...

Art, stories, musings, and militant governance over a squadron of tiny granite soldiers.

I've always thought that stories were important. As tools, as communication, as exploration of ideas, it doesn't really matter, because I can't seem to stop making them.

Like loose change they slip out of my pockets and ring out when they hit the street, and and I'm always shaking them out of bedsheets and cereal boxes and from in between the pages of old books.

I think they are important, so I try to make my art (in whatever media), with a sharp enough edge that it cuts a window into those stories to let in just a little more light. That's what I think art is good at, and it's useful because it let's somebody else take a peek inside if they want.

So anyway, if you want, here is a story.

I take commissions, and pieces featured in this gallery are for sale.
Please message me here or at for more information.

Join me in a march across the expanse of the Internet, or at least on social media:……


Carter Magdelin - Dungeons and Dragons

A Dungeons & Dragons character commissioned by my brother

Carter Magdelin is a half-elf cleric. An acolyte of the goddess Sune, he wields a mace and a fashion sense that doesn't seem to preclude cursed objects.

Pen and ink. 2017
© Dungeons & Dragons is the property of Wizards of the Coast LLC, a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. and Carter belongs to my brother.

Penguins revisited
Coming back to my Arctic/Antarctic series for a friend who loves penguins. A copy/enlargement of this piece.

Adelie Penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae)
Emperor Penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) 

Watercolor. 2018
Wow! Has it been a long time since I made a journal. I'm trying to keep up momentum in 2018, with hopefully a consistent posting schedule, more social media participation, revisiting old stuff, and new formats I'm going to try like this one.
The goal is to feature my own work (And that of others) in sets to kind of draw the lines between works that might not have been uploaded together, inspirational stuff I've found, etc.

The short of it being: here's a piece with focus areas and angle shots. Does this work, and if not how can I do it better?
