Psymposia

I’ve been doing some work with Psymposia, a very smart, devoted collective of activists, writers and artists working to raise awareness and hopefully change some attitudes about psychedelics. Their new magazine is still in its nascent stages, but some articles...
Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders

Here’s Bernie Sanders, back when his handlers didn’t make him comb his hair. I really enjoy creating vector portraits. Although they can be somewhat time consuming, I think I actually prefer doing it this way over digital painting. My fellow BAI...
Birthday Portrait

Birthday Portrait

Last fall, Jimmy MacMillan–AKA head honcho at Friends Records–asked me to create a surprise birthday portrait for someone. I was pleased to do it (and it’s about time I posted it up here), so here we have local live-music documentarian and...

#10: Palms

#10: Palms

#9: D. Johnson & Kitten

When I asked friends what kinds of illustrations they would like to see, (interesting op-eds, celebrity portraits, anything really) I got a request for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. There was no suggestion that a cat be incorporated, but those giant shoulders...
#8: Hibiscus

#8: Hibiscus

I took some photos of a gorgeous hibiscus plant near my work and took a stab at drawing it. Little did know that there are literally hundreds of different hybrid cultivars of this ubiquitous tropical flower, but a little research has lead me to think this is a Spin...
