our limitless love

This illustration is now available exclusively at Disneyland’s Wonderground Gallery. I will be there signing on July 21, 28 and 29 from 11-1pm. I will also be performing live wood burnings the last weekend at Rushin’ River Outfitters inside California Adventure from 2-5p. If you can’t make it to Disney can take orders via email […]

Out first family ride

Two new illustrations were released this weekend with Disney. Both were inspired by my daughter – her first ride and her love of Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

thank you

love in the leaves

Drawing this reminded me why I love my job. Next week I will be at Denver Comicon as their special guest, I will participate on a slew […]
