Rumors of my dimise have been greatly exaggerated. I’m still here! And in perfect time for her birthday (today, Apritl 4th), here’s Tarder Sauce AKA Grumpy Cat! She’s so cute and grumpy. Like me, but in cat form. Just kidding. I’m not so cute and fluffy. This was a lot of fun to work on, especially [...]
Yay! More cats! This time it’s Venus, the Chimera cat! Actually, according to this National Geographic article, it might not actually be chimerism, which is what happens when two embryos fuse together giving the animal (or person) two different sets of DNA, but whatever the cause might be, you can’t deny that this is one stunning feline.

I’m baacckk! It’s been a while. I took a bit of a long break there, but now I’m back with a double portrait! This time around it’s of one of my best friends cats whose names are Marshmallow and Oreo. They are such cuties (and with such delicious names!)

Painting 18 of 30: Ava and the Bird Man I’ve currently reading a book called Swamplandia! (the exclamation point is really essential) by Karen Russell and wanted to do an illustration to go along with it. The story takes palace in Florida (how could it not, with a title like that) and revolves around a [...]
Painting 15 of 30: The Catbus is Here! I recently watched the new Hayo Miyazaki movie The Borrower Arrietty which inspired me to do this piece. If I could only watch one person’s movies for the rest of my life, it would probably be Hay Miyazaki’s (if you haven’t seen any of his movies, do [...]
Painting 11 of 30: Bluebeard I was brushing up on some fairy tales recently when I happened to stumbled upon the story of Bluebeard. It was probably the only story that always scared the living daylights out of me as a kid. I think I made him a bit young looking thought…
Painting 8 of 30: Surprised Falcon Sorry for not posting this yesterday, I was on an all day adventure and didn’t get home until late at night. This is actually two separate pieces that make up the same piece, I just combined them in Photoshop against a plain background. It’s collage and acrylic. When I [...]
