Brotique: 67% Body Fat

" I know it's time to hibernate, but I still think 67% is a little high!"

This is my latest submission to the Brotique Blog. Brotique is a group of children's illustrators & writer's. We get together a couple times a month and critique each others stuff in hopes of producing magnificent children's stories. I'll put a link up to the site and the blog as soon as I can.

Portrait of Grandpa Shoell

This is a pencil drawing I was working on for Jackie's Grandpa. He asked me about a month ago to draw his portrait in pencil. He passed away two days before I finished it. He was a great man, and we will miss him very much.

A much needed update

I think a wooden beaver would have plenty of trials in it's life.

An assignment for school. The assignment was "If these walls could talk"

Another school assignment, I was supposed to paint something from this decade that would be recognized if found 100 years later. I went with guitar hero.

I've been playing with washes lately, this painting was done in water color.

location, location, location. A little comment on the real estate market, sometimes you get what you pay for.

Black & Whites

I finally have some time to upload some new stuff. I've been playing with ink a lot lately, so here are a few b&w spot illustrations.

BFA Project

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I just got done hanging my senior show at the Harris Fine Arts Center (HFAC) at BYU. I haven't got any of them scanned, so I can't post them yet, but if your in the Provo area feel free to stop in and take a look. I've also got three pieces hanging in the student show in the same building. Hopefully now that I have a little more free time, I can scan my other paintings and keep things a little more updated.

p.s. I recently had the opportunity to go with a group of students down to Zions National Park. The trip was payed for by a grant from Avalanche; they are a video game company owned by Disney. We were down painting and sketching to get reference which we will use later to do a background painting that could be used in a video game. You can track our progress as we get ready for a show that we'll be having in the end of May at
