Drawings - Portraits & Figures

I've been drawing all my life, mostly with pencils. Recently, though, I've been working with charcoal and digital watercolor. I love illustrating animals and drawing portraits. I am currently working to improve my figure drawing. I have recently discovered the joys of computerized art programs, and am having a lot of fun exploring their capabilities.

I have an online comic at and a personal gallery site to allow people to track my development as an artist at

I am available for freelance work.

This weekís Gratham Tales webComic ( is a tribute to those loved ones Iíve lost recently. I like the idea of having a place where I can go to commune with those who have passed on.

I tried something different with the coloring this week. Instead of just filling it in with color, I watercolored it. Love the way it turned out. Iím thinking of adding the comic (minus words) to my webCards site ( because I think would make a very nice Thinking of You card.

My webComic, Grantham Tales, updates every Wednesday. Stop on over at to check out what's going on with the animals of Grantham Meadows.

This site is union run and approved by the bunnies of Bunnies Local 6.

Keep exercising
I did this drawing for my dad as a card to encourage him in is new exercise program. He has a lot of back and nerve problems, but has found a gym that he likes, so I wanted to do something to show support. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Start of something new.
This is a big step for me.
After years of sketching and scribbling on whatever was handy, I've decided to put my artwork out there for others to see.
I'll be updating and changing my pictures once in a while as new things are created.
Happy Holidays.

Keep exercising! - ink and digital watercolor - $n/a
