Golden-fronted Woodpecker Illustration

Happy Tuesday!

When a birding enthusiast spots a new bird they have not seen in the wild before, they call that “a lifer”. Birders will add that bird to their birding “Lifer List”. My Lifer List is currently at 191 species. In a digital illustration series, I will introduce my birding Lifer List to you.

Electric Guitar Construction

15 Jan 2018 9:00am

For Illustration Friday, this weeks topic is “Guitar“. It reminded me to revive Project Electric Guitar from digital sleep. Originally drawn in 2013 and inspired by all those guitar gods…Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn… B.B. King… the list goes on. Taken from sketch, to screen to digital print, Project Electric Guitar is back in the shop for instant download. Happy Monday!

Design Rewind: Atlanta City Skyline

11 Jan 2018 9:00am

On January 2nd, the state of Georgia became 230 years old! Today, a look back to April of 2010 when I created the city skyline drawing of Atlanta, Georgia.

I utilize many tools when designing the layout of a new city skyline drawing. I look for everything ranging from maps, photos, online reviews of destination hot spots,and historical references. All of it comes together to create a “collapsed” skyline that hopefully captures everything one might need to trigger thoughts of that particular city.

Atlanta on Google Earth


Looking at midtown Atlanta from the north east area near Ansley Park proved to have a sweeping view of all the major skyscrapers I wanted to include. The above similar view is courtesy of Google Earth. After much plotting and planning… the baseline city skyline drawing of Atlanta, Georgia was born.

This skyline has since been used in many wedding invitations, moving announcements, and other various projects… including as a tattoo! 😍

You can download this skyline today to use in your DIY projects. I’d love to see photos of what you create with it.

Happy March

Named for the Roman god of war Mars… March is the third month of the year. 👽 It has 31 days and is known as the first month of spring in the Northern Hemisphere due to the Vernal equinox which occurs between March 19th and 21st of every year. 🌱
