The Hours Between


the hours

“The hours between 12am and 6am have a funny habit of making you feel like you’re either on top of the world…or under it.” Quote by Beau Taplin. Sketch from my sketchbook, with digital filters and extra bonus digital pasties…

Pink Haired Girl



Pink Haired GirlSorry that I’ve been MIA… The last few months have brought a lot of changes, so I’ve been extra busy and trying to adjust. I recently got hired to be part of an art team in addition to all the other things going on! I’ll save that story for another post…

For the last three weeks, I’ve been dealing with the flu and pneumonia, so I haven’t been doing any work. Watched plenty of Dr. Who though… 😉 Just picked up my sketchbook again the other day… Here’s one of the sketches I managed. It’s colored pencil, marker, and gel pens. Hope you like it! Looking forward to painting next week!!!


Life Without…

A collaborative sketch with Scottish artist, Sean Fleming

A collaborative sketch with Scottish artist, Sean Fleming

Life without art, life without love …is nothing.  Another collaborative sketch between me and Scottish artist Sean Fleming, done while I was traveling. This one I’m now adding color to and will post another pic when it’s done.  I love the push and pull of working together on a piece. Looking forward to doing more.

It’s Sunday, so I must confess my Ed Sheeran addiction…

pencil drawing ed sheeran fan artBefore I assault you with my backlog of dark, moody paintings, I thought I’d ease you into things with something a bit more peaceful. This is Ed Sheeran, a singer/songwriter from the UK, who is fairly new to the music scene. I find him inspiring because he is a driven, self-made (musical) artist who’s seen his efforts pay off. His music is mostly anguished folk/pop/hip-hop and resonates well with my tortured soul. 😛

This is a pencil sketch from my sketchbook, with digital filters added. (I sketched this from a photograph, which didn’t have a source attached, but if I figure it out, I’ll post it here.)

Update: Here’s a nice, brief video summary of Ed’s career, created by James McConachie:
