Sketchbook






The weather is absurd. It’s so windy I rescheduled lunch plans and refuse to leave my house. Gusts up to 50mph. I feel like I’m back in New Mexico. With my newly freed afternoon, I thought I’d scan in some sketches. I bought a very nice leather sketchbook on my […]

Sunday Sketches





This is the beginning of a new series titled That Face When... The moment I saw Ms. Clinton make this face, I knew I wanted to do a series of powerful women with "that face." The face women make when they just have to sit there and let a man get it out of his system.
