For our vacation time this year, Rachel and I took a short camping trip with our good friend Brook out to Lopez Island, WA. Brook had been before, and so he showed us some of the best spots. We camped at Odlin Park, just a mile from the ferry terminal once you get to the island – and from here we drove around the island and explored. The locals are very friendly, and almost always wave to you from their…

Rachel and I did some charcoal rubbings one night and this was my drawing. A girl peeking out from behind a curtain in a doorway. I love the quality of charcoal on paper.
This was the first 6×4 inch sketch that I did on the sketch pad my wife’s family gave me for my birthday a few years back. I had fun trying to draw the cracks and lines in the rock..using the white of the paper as much as the graphite.
One of my mini sketches I did on a small 6×4 inch sketch pad. I’m a detail person and enjoy trying to pack as many details into a small space as I can – not to overcrowd an image – but to give it subtle depth. My greatest challenge in this image – which I’m not sure I really overcame – was to give the proper contrast between the cliff in the foreground and the valley below it. You tell…
A quick sketch of a fantasy street drawing. I played with perspective and varying line weights. I was kind of going for a ghost Venice town sort of feeling. It makes me wonder what the city would look like with water in the center street..and boats etc. The kind of sketch that stokes the imagination.
I drew this design as the initials of both myself and my wife (Calvin & Rachel) as I was driving down to visit my fiance at the time. I ended up incorporating the design onto the front of our wedding program. I actually managed to draw most of it while riding on a Greyhound bus down from Vancouver to Washington – bumps and all.
I did this drawing for a class project at Emily Carr University. I entered it into the year end art show, as I felt it was my best work outside of what I normally did at the time – namely 3D work. The message of this piece to me is how our society has built such a massive and complicated infrastructure – economically, industrially, corporately – and yet for all of this accomplishment, still spiritually we are deprived and empty…
This is a quick pointillism experiment I did during an Art History class in my time at Emily Carr University. Slightly abstract/slightly concept art style.
This was my first serious digital painting after buying my Wacom Tablet. I wanted to draw something ethereal and yet with emotion. I focused on lighting and texture in this image. The clouds were the most fun to do and I think turned out well with a sort of wispy/ominous feeling. You can see the progression of my work in the images above.
