Advent Illustration 2

December 3, 2015

Jury duty involves quite a bit of sitting around in absolutely boring rooms.  Not so good for scanning images, but great for sitting and inking.  Also pretty good for learning American dialects.  It was a drug abuse trial.  Hours spent hearing ‘payinn’ and ‘peeill’.  Translation: ‘pain’ and ‘pill’.

Cat-mint Conversations

June 12, 2015

Rogues Gallery of Cats

June 2, 2015

It’s a Rogues Gallery of Cats.  Who knows what they are really up to!  Even though it is June, not December, I am wishing for santa baby to bring me a wide format scanner, as this image is only about 2/3 of the painting.  There is a landscape on the bottom that had to be […]
