Nothing is better than
Going home without a reason
I look into the sky
And see the reason for life
Everyone’s born to die.
I created “Memorial Mirror” especially for Cruiser Dynamo’s Robot Art Anthology, based loosely around this verse from “Everyone’s Born to Die.” Other than commissions and practical job related duties, this is all I’ve been working on for the past two weeks. It’s mostly an experiment in coloring and brush pen techniques and a chance for me to do something different.
Happy Mother’s Day! My mom is the best of moms.
I’m having fun with simple little greeting card designs!
Butterflies for my fiance’s grandpa!
“Without You”—a small landscape
I have prints for sale on my inprnt store! If you want a print of “Fantasy in BUB Minor” or “Grood’s Walk Home,” you are in luck!
I make less of a profit from Society6, but you could purchase a sweet Bub throw pillow over there!

Holy Moly, I can’t handle all of the awesome people who started following me yesterday! Thanks so much for liking and reblogging “Grood’s Walk Home,” you are all the COOLEST. Oh my gosh.
Fantasy in BUB Minor
I found this file from last spring or summer, called “Lilac Dark” and was just glad that I had hidden another unfinished painting for the pleasure of finishing it later.
Painted to the tune of “Carouselambra” by Led Zeppelin, and the rest of the In Through the Out Door album.
Letters From a Friend
A letter is mailed on a rainy day
to a friend who always asks,
“Are you doing well?”
expecting nothing is wrong
imagining warm fires, minty grins
As if it never rains where they sit writing
There are no drafts under their doors, no unfinished thoughts.
And though you want to tell them
everything that is wrong.
Everything that falls down and cries.
You just sigh.
You just say “Yes”
David Bowie’s new album features a song called “How Does the Grass Grow,” and the more I listened to it the more I was completely sure that songs like that further cemented his place as my favorite artist in the universe.
So here’s a piece, not based on the history of the song or his intent, but what I pictured. Gouache on chipboard.
You should go read the lyrics. They are beautiful.
