Here are some backgrounds I worked on. A friend of mine went to Ireland last year and is about to go back again soon. I was browsing through her photos and loved them, so I used them as references.

This one was driving me nuts... I didn't like the drawing very much and I painted the background with watercolor (not very well) and the foreground digitally in photoshop, just to see the outcome. blah...
I liked certain parts of it, so I broke it up into two compositions...

Sketchbook: Animals

Animals are probably my favorite thing to draw. I went to the zoo a little while ago and did some sketching there, some of these are gestures from the zoo and others are more developed sketches built off of the gestures.


Owls especially are really interesting to me, they seem to only have two expressions. I feel they look like they're either really pissed off about something, or just really surprised.

This wasn't from the zoo, there weren't any sheep or shepherd boys there, but sheep are cute!

on the streets

I can be a painfully shy person and I love anybody who can go out into the world, be who they want to be and do what they love to do.
so here are some illustrations of some street musicians, who do just that.
