I've been trying to raise some money so I can participate in lots of exciting Chicago art things!
So, I've got a sale going on in my Etsy shop...

All original drawings have been marked down half price!
Take a look right HERE.

And hopefully I'll be adding some new prints into my shop soon...

It's time for some goood coffee...

Enjoying the sunny, rainy days...
We have been making a habit out of traveling to New Wave here in Logan Square.
It's a great place to sit a draw and drink some great coffee.
The following drawings were mostly made while lounging there.

"My Comforter, Soft As Stone"

"Coffee" (my very first gouache painting!)


Below, just two silly doodles....

Please Vote... and Contribute!

If you score my design with a 5, I have a higher chance of it getting printed!
Thanks, friend.


In other news, My mom's boyfriend is opening a hair salon called "Down To There"... a hair salon which happens to have an entire other room attached... which we decided to turn into an art gallery/boutique space... which I am in charge of curating! The entire shop opens in mid-June, and I'm still looking for artists!
