Professional Horseshoe Pitch (sort of)

Horseshoe Hero

An old friend of mine pointed out that I had the perfect spot in my backyard to build a horseshoe pitch.  About a week later, he said that we should build one and it appeared he put some thought into it because he started sending me specs and pics of other pits that he had researched. The drawings he sent …

Racing Portrait

Corso Hero

This was painted in photoshop using a photo reference of a friend of mine on the track. The goal was to try and convey the vivid colors, the action and the speed of this moment. I didn’t bother putting the background in, i felt like it detracted from the subject.

Subwoofer Box Plans

Subbox Hero11

This is a set of plans that I drew up for a sub woofer box that I built for the trunk of my Altima in 1998-ish.  Now that I do all my drawings on a Cintiq, I look back on these plans and realize that even though the medium I work in is different, the process is still the same …

This one is the first in a series of two drawings of this statue. There is something liberating about drawing from sculpture. The sculptor has already thought through the process of how to simplify complex …

Anatomy Practice

Skull Hero1

After all the years that I’ve been drawing, anatomy and bone structure still remain at the top of my list of things that I would draw if I didn’t need to worry about making a living. Working the human skeleton into more basic geometric shapes and stylizing features of bones still brings me a large amount of satisfaction.  Whenever I …
