Another Sort of Selfie—The Doodle Selfie

  This is a late-night doodle, which is also a selfie… It’s on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper that I made into a hand-bound book. After midnight my spelling is questionable, though at least I still usually question it.

More Hair—a Selfie

  I’m wrapping up the current hair series with a selfie. My braided hair of course. I don’t do selfies often. I have to stand in the bathroom and juggle pens and palettes.  I was frustrated late one night because my foot was in a cast and my vision was particularly frustrating. But there is […]

Television: Frank of Ireland

  There are some televisions shows I can’t really tell you about—you just need to experience them. To tell you specifics of “Frank of Ireland” (available on Amazon Prime) would be to spoil all the little and large discoveries you’ll make along the crazy, hilarious way. Frank is a 32-year-old would-be musician who lives at […]

Another Wizard

I started these wizard portraits working very small (6 x 8 inch page size), but this one, which is about 9 x 11, inches just sort of happened. It seems I can’t get wizards out of my mind. Now it seems many of them might end up being very large as well. We’ll see.  This […]

Pushing a Sketch

It’s very rare that I don’t finish a sketch. If something goes awry during the sketching I typically keep pushing just so I can see what’s possible. I learn a lot at moments like that. On this date I was using a granulating blue on a pen sketch of a little black dog. I usually […]

In Context: Some Relationship Advice from Ronny Chieng

Great advice from Ronny Chieng, when something goes awry and you and your partner have to get on with things— and then some pears, because there are always pears around to sketch.

The Puzzle of Starbuck

Update: If you would like to see me sketch and paint this portrait it’s an extra August 2021 demo posted August 15, on my Patreon site—available to Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscribers.   Look, I’ve read Melville’s “Moby Dick” three times in  my life—I’m not about to read it again. But that doesn’t mean […]
