Well I realized I haven't posted anything forever. I've been getting used to my new job, and working in the graphic design world. I am loving Kanab, but haven't been able to get out in nature too much besides a few hikes up the red cliffs around Kanab. Nichole is adjusting to her new jobs, as they aren't quite like managing a large apartment complex, but we're excited for the new start. Well I've been pretty busy, but really looking forward to putting more time into illustration and developing my style, and hopefully get an agent in the near future. I've been developing my style for years, but feel that I've started to focus in on what it is I really like to draw, and how to draw it. These are a few of my newest drawings, and will probably start adding some color to them. Let me know what you think, and what you don't. Thanks

You were man enough to pack it in weren't you......?
Well I got back from my backpacking trip to Uinta's. I wasn't in too great of shape, and it kicked my butt, but I did it. It was fun, and other than the mosquitos and my feet hurting it was Awesome. Lot's of fun, and the pictures tell most of the story. Our friend Cody works for the Forest Service, and joined us for a night. Well that's about it.

I started a blog for Utah Artists, and I wanted us to have a bi-weekly topic to draw something about. So the first subject was Little Red Riding Hood. I think I wanted to push the characters even more, but it was a first try. The Beach Party one is my latest designs for Del Sol.

Howdy, I have had this idea about doing Caricatures for people online. I found some pictures of some girls and did these Caricature/portraits. I'll keep toying with the idea, as I need to get my real website up and running to make it work. Then I have been doing some more illustrations trying to work on my style. So there are some more illustrations with that in mind.

We had to climb down through this rock to get down from the top.
This is my Aunt and Uncles house that we stayed at that night. It was really nice.
These are pictures of an old movie/tv set where they used to film the show Gunsmoke as well as other western movies. All the buildings were pretty functional, we used to be able to into them, but it's all fenced off now. After we had some lunch we drove out here, east of Kanab in a place called Johnson Canyon. Further up we saw this sign etched in the sandstone, as Johnson Canyon used to be the old Highway, so the sign was kind a like a billboard. The white cliffs are awesome they are part of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, you can see in a couple photos the HooDoo's of Bryce National park. ( A HooDoo is a large red sandstone spire)

These are a couple designs that I've been working on for the last little bit. The Dragon has taken me a while, but believe it is finally done, and the titan one is still just an idea for some upcoming conference in Alaska. I'll just keep on keepin' on.

I am really glad that I have this new job. I get to do cool artwork at work, and now I have the freedom to draw and come up with ideas and projects for myself at home. I really love illustration, and have started to work on a style that represents me. So These are some of what I am coming up with so far,
