Slippy J Caricature

I've been telecommuting from over 1000 miles away these last few months. With the help of skype, ichat and other wonderful sites like dropbox, this has been a fairly easy transition! While video chatting, I took a screen shot of a fellow coworker and decided to do a caricature from it. Hope you don't mind Slippy ;)

The Ikari Secret shirt design competition

I've made a shirt for the Threadless design competition. It's up for scoring for 7 days. Perhaps you'll recognize the code for infinite lives in one of my favorite childhood games, Ikari Warriors. If you like it, I would like you if you rate it :)

thanks!

Owl Drawing

I had a pic of an owl on my desktop for the longest time just waiting to be drawn. I got tired of it taking up the real estate so I finally did it!

New Website

I've messed up my goal of at least one post a month already, but it's for a good reason. I've been hard at work programming and creating my web site for my flash animation and illustration portfolio! Click on the image to check it out and let me know what you think :)



I've also decided to post links to previous versions of my web site I did years ago, but decided not to use for one reason or another. The main reason being that web sites should be simple and to the point and I felt these were becoming a bit too elaborate ;) At least now they have a home and all that work wasn't for nothing.

Version 1 circa 2005...



Version 2 circa 2007...

Lake Shelbyville

I inked this as an X-mas gift for my Dad. Its taken from a pic of our summer trip to Lake Shelbyville, IL. We had a great time, camping, fishing, and just hanging out. My Dad and I have a lot of good memories on that beautiful lake, and it was sure nice to be back after many years away. The good thing about living far away from your parents is that when you do get together you really enjoy and appreciate your time together even more.
