• Still Life

    Greetings all, I just wanted to post a few of the production stills and a couple other images from the political comedy series, “Embeds” that premiered recently on go90. Thanks to a friend I got a call from their production crew looking for some local art for set dressin. Even though the work only shows…

  • I’ve never been much for politics, but…

    When you’re asked by the production team for a new polit-com from Megyn Kelly, “Can we use some of your work for our show?”, you say, “Why not?”. So there you have it in a nutshell: My Artwork. New comedy. Political incorrectness (we can only hope). Here’s the trailer. I hope it’s good. Megyn Kelly-produced…

  • Thank You, Masked Man

    I had the opportunity to help someone today. I feel some shame in writing about this not because I’m ashamed of doing what I did, but because I believe making such acts a public event cheapens the act itself. I believe receiving undue praise for being a regular, decent person can lead to expectations of…

  • Panoramapalooza

    I’ve been loving me some horizontal formats lately… and graphite or charcoal on toned paper. Maybe it’s because I was such a huge movie fan as a kid and I wish the world was filmed in Ultra Panavision. Maybe it’s because I have this huge roll of gray-toned paper I’ve been sitting on for a couple…

  • A Touch of Gold

    I’m throwing my hat in the ring (a couple of times) for this year’s Des Moines Arts Week festivities. My first go-round will be with a group exhibition at the Salisbury House called, “Le Garage Hermetique”. I’ll get deeper into that in another post. Believe me… You’ll want to see this show. As for myself I’ll…

  • The Goddess Gets Some Color

    Got a chance to start laying down some color this week. It’s a work-in-progress so odds are there’ll be some significant changes before it’s all over. I’m trying to limit myself to 3 or 4 sessions to completion. Going to give it a few days to dry while I work on other projects. Hoping to…

  • Le Garage Hermetique

    Nearly finished with the underpainting for this little ditty that will be going on display at a group show in June called, “Le Garage Hermetique”. The theme comes from the title of a serialized comic by the artist, Moebius, that was first published in the French magazine, “Metal Hurlant”… or as we know it in…
