Today is my mom's birthday! In honor of the occasion I give you - "Linda Means Beautiful" ... Happy Birthday Mom! https://www.etsy.com/listing/189313072/pen-and-ink-illustration-black-and-white?

More often than not, when I draw it is just with my pen. No sketching, very little planning, just sorta going with it. "Mandala" is a prime example of the results: https://www.etsy.com/listing/187506579/doodle-art-original-art-black-and-white?nc=1

"Taxidermy" (2013) . Highly detailed storybook illustration. I drew this as part of a challenge in my early days on DeviantArt. The only thing we had to go on was Taxidermy, that's it, no restrictions, no real rules. So I decided to put together an office and the fun stuff I would make should I be willing to assemble the carcasses of animals. I would make some funky stuff. https://www.etsy.com/listing/188311960/original-art-pen-and-ink-illustration?ref=listing-shop-header-0

Well that was quick. Pops original is officially sold. Limited Edition Prints are also available. https://www.etsy.com/listing/207328242/doodle-art-portrait-pen-and-ink?

I've had dreams about this place, I don't know where it is or why I'm there, but it's alot scarier than it looks: https://www.etsy.com/listing/188705990/architectural-original-art-pen-ink?

"Balloonheads" set of 2. So looking forward to the weekend, friends coming for luncheon tomorrow, new drawing pad and no requirement to sit at my computer... bliss! https://www.etsy.com/listing/178206686/storybook-illustration-pen-and-ink?

It's Friday night ladies and gents! I am doing standard domestic stuff, playing with kids, drawing and ... well that's about it. "Exile": https://www.etsy.com/listing/196139790/exile-original-art-doodle-art-pen-and?

"No Limits" original just listed: https://www.etsy.com/listing/207614655/original-pen-and-ink-drawing

"Ned" - a little Beavis … a little Star Trek. I am a stew of pop culture. https://www.etsy.com/listing/187687270/surreal-original-art-pen-ink?

Lots of drawing this weekend, and a listing of the "Festivities" original. I almost kept this one, but I just can't keep all of them I love. https://www.etsy.com/listing/207771530/original-art-pen-and-ink-drawing-surreal?

"MeeMaw" - a collaborative effort with my youngest (7 at the time). She was adamant about the horns and the hair and the mumu type outfit. Sweet dear little thing. https://www.etsy.com/listing/182871953/

Recently finished piece for "Miscreated Creatures" I haven't posted one of these in quite awhile, but they are my perpetual fall back project work for a HUGE encyclopedia of monsters. H.U.G.E.

"The Murder of Hypatia" just listed: https://www.etsy.com/listing/207968631/original-art-pen-and-ink-drawing Hypatia was a 4th century philosopher and astronomer, well renown and well respected in her time, right up until a mob of Christians killed her. Ahhh, the good old days.

Much props to my little one for again directing me appropriately, "Collaboration" https://www.etsy.com/listing/196148573

Sometimes I look at my 13 year old daughter ... and this is all I see. "Lethargy" https://www.etsy.com/listing/196461350

Okay, this is dumb, but I ordered 50 of these fine art cards from my printer and while they are absolutely GORGEOUS, I ordered the wrong size. :( So, I have 50 of these puppies that I'm listing in my shop. I don't normally sell cards, so this is sorta a special thing. These would make really lovely New Year's party invites ... https://www.etsy.com/listing/208303994/

"Water Bird" - just added to the sketchbook section of my shop! https://www.etsy.com/listing/208377498

Happy Saturday. The family and I are off to the 'Science Fest' to watch experiments, learn about research projects and generally enjoy the wonderful weather. Enjoy your day! "Hand Tree" - my very first oversized piece! https://www.etsy.com/listing/196471301

Finally finished, estimated time ... about a million years or really about 30 hours. "Wild Minded" - original now available in the shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/208538081 Thanks to you all for your constant support as I was posting my work in progress - that's really alot of fun for me and since ya'll seem to enjoy it too, I'll try to remember to snap photos more often! :)

A little naked late autumn tree. Another busy day of drawing, this one isn't new - but it's one of my favorites.

Happy Monday! While I enjoy a weekend as much as anyone else, I have to admit a certain joy to the routine of the week ... it helps that my job is great. Today's feature: "Delusions" https://www.etsy.com/listing/183542519

"Bear" off to a new home in the NorthWest!

Well, I just had a reserved order fall through, so the original "Pops" is officially back on the market!

For the next few days I'll be featuring items from the sketchbook section of my shop, some of these are pretty silly, but endearing - bear with me! :) "Talons"
