2010

So I have nothing new this week again. I keep a pocket sized sketchbook for those days when I don't feel like carrying my man-purse around.

Here are some pages from a year ago.






As for any resolutions, I really want to start working harder and doing more funny stuff. Also would like to say thanks to everyone who looks at my site. I appreciate you.

If I knew exactly where you were in the world, I would marry you and make lots of talented, artsy babies with you. You have a gift. You're nuts, mind you, but you have a gift.

Hey I'm just a high school kid who likes Circa Survive and I think you're style is so creative, new and amazing. This is a bit lame but I love the way wikipedia describes your work. I feel the same way. Anyways, I just wanted to say, you are an inspiration to me and you'd be surprised how many people you touch with your work. Keep it up and continue to amaze.

Postscript: It seems that mostmusical artists rely on photoshopping or some other computer program to create their cover artwork. I don't doubt that things are touched up before being put onto the cover of circa cds but really, I think the idea of just having someone paint something to capture the spirit of a series of 10/15 is a wonderful idea.
Thanks!

I found it ironic that no one commented on this one. I think your sketches are just as amazing as all of your other works, if not better. You're incredibly talented and should get much more recognition than you do.

I agree with emily, all your work is just very inspiring and amazing! I really appreciate your stuff, keep creating! And I also love all the sketchbook work you've posted, you should post more. :)

Thank you to both of you. I gotta start working on sketching more, I used to be so diligent about it.

I lost this particular sketchbook, must have left it at some bar/cafe several months ago. Its too bad that the phone number and e-mail address where never used on the first page.

Maybe I'll find it though.
