It has been a whole heck of a long time.  Having your first child will put a lot on hold.  I have worked on a few things here and there (including the Goddess of the Spring Thaw painting good grief), but for the most part, art has been on hold.

Well no more, I have risen up with a new heart.  Here is a sketch that I did for my friend Alli forever ago.  A sword wielding raccoon riding an alligator.

Persephone or Kore in Greek Mythology.  Proserpina (or Flora) in Roman tales of gods and goddesses.  Atégina in Spanish myths.  Hannahanna from Hattian lore.  Many names form history and traditions, but mostly the same idea.  Here is my take on it entitled “The goddess of spring thaw”, aka “I probably won’t catch any fish for a while”

goddessAnatomy sketch study for a piece I am working on called, of course, “Goddess of Spring Thaw”.  A conceptual fly fishing piece encompassing many things that make me think of what spring entails: mostly anticipation of summer.  Purple pencil on Canson tracing paper.

A few logo comps for Village Dental in the Denver Tech Center/Greenwood Village area

The logo is a tooth (obviously)  and I tried to incorporate a heart in it as well.  The meshing of design elements.  The second page I added a burst to see the effect behind one of my designs.

If you are in the Denver area at all Auguts 21st, come to this show it is sure to be wonderful.  I did the flier with pen and ink and washes of watercolor, with the type from photoshop (i know…).  It brings Aladdin and the King of Thieves to mind for some reason.
