New Works

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. Got back to All Them Works…cheers amigos.

On it

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 my work out there and…

Slint The Red-Hooded (Necromancer 1)

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 fulfillment that I haven’t felt…

Revive

I’m proud to share that I have a piece/feature in the newest addition of  Revive – A Quarterly Fly Fishing Journal. Revive is another great online publication covering the places, art, fish, people and culture of contemporary fly fishing.  I’m honored to be a small part of what they’re doing.  Please check it out, and lose yourself for a while.…

Sketchbooks and Old Tables

Sketchbooks. They’ve been a part of my life like a security blanket.  I used to thumb through the stacked books of my brother and mother; secret spell books containing the elusive methods, magic, genius ideas and imaginations of artists.  I was hooked.  Still am. The older I get, the more I regret not keeping better track of the dozens upon…

Ghosts

I’ve had an idea for a new body for work bouncing around in my head for the last month.  I finally put pencil/paint to surface, and the idea jumped into life.  I’m pumped. The surface/canvas will be wood boards (new or used, as long as they’re suitable to draw on).  The grain, texture and feel of the wood will be…

Back in the Saddle

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 leaves, and the cold hard…

The Growler

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 write a  homebrewing column for…

Esox

Some drawings of the toothy predators that prowl my neighbor waters. Citizens be on alert.
