Triceratops Rocks!

I just finished up a new design called Triceratops Rocks!, created with ink on paper and colored digitally. I’ve made it available now on everything from shirts to rugs to comforters in my Society6 and Redbubble shops!

I originally made the Triceratops skull as a part of a mural at The Bakery in downtown Sioux Falls. I loved how it turned out and I decided right away that I’d eventually incorporate it into another more permanent piece. Well, here it is (finally) and I’m excited to continue expanding the series that I had started with Geo-rex Vortex!

For more on my process of creating these ink and digital pieces, see here.

8 x 8 Holiday Show

8 x 8 Holiday Show 2016

It’s that time again: FIRST FRIDAY! First Friday for the month of December is always especially fun-filled with holiday cheer in downtown Sioux Falls, so I can’t wait.

I’m participating in a group show at Rehfeld’s Art & Framing called the 8 x 8 Holiday Show. Artists were invited to create 8 x 8 inch sized original works to sell for $88. I created four new pieces for this show (two shown in the promo image above). Take full advantage of this crazy low price while they last!

I’m in fantastic company at this show so do check out the other artists involved. It’s a diverse variety of art styles and I believe there will be something to appeal to every taste. I’ll be at this reception from about 6:00 to 9:00 PM and many of the other artists will be in attendance as well.

An early happy holidays to you and see you downtown!

Autumn Equinox

Autumn Collie Card

Happy fall season to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere today (and a happy spring to the Southern Hemisphere)!

My Autumn Collie illustration that I created for a calendar last year is available as a greeting card in my Etsy shop. It’s printed on high quality natural off-white card stock and comes with a recycled kraft envelope. The original piece was drawn in black ink on paper and colored digitally.

Artist Reception at Rehfeld’s Art & Framing

Rehfeld's Artist Reception 2016

A huge thank you to everyone who came to Rehfeld’s Art & Framing for my First Friday featured artist reception! It was a perfectly beautiful summer evening downtown and a fantastically busy day for the arts in Sioux Falls. What a night!

I did some live watercolor painting during the reception. I didn’t get very far but that’s a good thing – it means I was too busy chatting with all the fine folks who stopped in!

If you didn’t make it to the reception, my work will be up front and center in the gallery all month long. Let me know what you think if you get a chance to take a look.
