I was away, drinking homebrews from around the country, talking to some Swedish dude about how to manage homebrewing organizations...drawing in the margins, finding a new love for the music of All Them Witches, and drinking more beers again and again and again from Founders.

I was planning on doing some drawing today, but it kcked into higher gear when I saw this. I'm a fan of Surly. I know those guys. I've been pining to pen some bottle/can art for them for the last 2,000 years. I now have my chance. I make no assumptions, just going to put... Continue Reading →
This is the first piece in a new series I'm calling Necromancers. I'll let you draw your own conclusions between the series' name and the work. Prints and stretched canvases are available here. I will say that this piece, and the ones currently in the works, have given me a sense of excitement, engagement and... Continue Reading →

The older I get, the more I regret not keeping better... Continue Reading →

The surface/canvas will be wood boards (new or used, as long as they're suitable to draw on). The grain, texture and feel... Continue Reading →
After what feels like forever, I'm brewing beer and drawing. A bit of a drought. A professor of mine in grad school once pointed out to me that I make work and "act" according to the changing seasons; she wasn't wrong, and to this day, it holds true. The chill in the air, the changing... Continue Reading →
I was recently asked to do some illustrations for a story on fishing and beer in one of my favorite local rags called The Growler. The Growler is a monthly covering the MN and regional craft beer scene. Run by some good people, I jumped at the chance. Hell if my pal Dawson is gonna... Continue Reading →
