I like to draw and paint colorful illustrations while playing the banjo and wearing Chuck Taylors.

Taking a break to play around with some watercolor in my sketchbook. The brown paper held up well with very little wrinkling.

Hey! If you have a few minutes, I did a fun interview on Inky Girl's blog post. Check it out.
#BookADay : FARAWAY FRIENDS by +Russ Cox, Russ's picture debut as an author/illustrator (Sky Pony Press). Russ was kind enough to answer Three Questions for me today: http://inkygirl.com/inkygirl-main/2015/5/29/three-questions-with-russ-cox-advice-for-young-writers-and-i.html Includes advice for young writers & illustrators, a wonderfully nerdy drawing he sent because it looks like me (AND IT DOES), tigers, and upcoming projects.

Synopsis of FARAWAY FRIENDS:
Faraway Friends is about Sheldon, a would be astronaut, and his sidekick Jet, who are looking for a lost friend through a space adventure only to find a weird alien creature and its furry friend.
