Last week I had a chance to go see the Norman Rockwell Exhibit at the BYU museum of art. I went with friends from my critique group. It’s so much fun to go to things like this with other artists. We had a great time analyzing the paintings together. This post is about some of th
Thrifted Frame I went to the thrift store and found some fun picture frames. This one is one of my favorites. It’s just so darn cool looking, despite the fact that it’s actually made of plastic. The red velvet was a little worn but some fabric paint took care of that. Pain
At the beginning of December I wrote this post about sketchbook inspiration. In December I committed to draw a sketch every day, and I sketched with a theme. This is me checking in to tell you how it went. First of all I have to give a shoutout to my friends Jen and Shawna. They were

Hello guys. It’s been two weeks since my last coloring page. Last week I was at Salt Lake Comic Con Fan experience selling prints. It was a fun weekend talking to everyone, and the don’t blink coloring page was a hit, as you can imagine. I also almost got ran over by Patri

Sometimes as an artist I wonder if I’m actually doing anything worth while or if I’m just selfishly spending my time creating art when I could be, I don’t know, feeding homeless people or volunteering with the boy scouts. Ya know what I mean? What kind of difference
I enjoy giving stuff away, and have meant to hold a new giveaway ever since I migrated my old blog to this new website. The lame thing is that was about a year ago. The cool thing is that I’m doing one now but we’ll get to that in a second. First For Your Info I have two s
Last Tuesday night my awesome friend David Wilson had Chris Oatley speak in the class he teaches at the Salt Lake Art Institute. Much of what Chris said got my brain a thinkin’ so now I’m going to share some of my thoughts with you. What’s your Next Creative Goal? Mo
Lately I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with this blog and other social media. Some of it seems be working well and some of it wasn’t working as well… Sometimes it’s hard experimenting with social media because in the back of my mind I think “I
