Digital Portraits

These are "quick" digital images that either were created to illustrate Mousebreath articles or were commissioned.

Sometimes I start these portraits in watercolor,scan them, and finish digitally.

Mosaics

I love creating mosaics more than any other art form.

I don't do many, though. The process slices the crap 

outta my hands,* so my DNA is incorporated into

every single one (TMI, right?). And, shards end up everywhere.

* Yes, I've tried gloves, but it's impossible to place tiny tiles precisely whilst wearing them.

Rainbow Cats

I often paint acrylic portraits of cats who've gone to The Bridge.

My substrate of choice is 6" or 8" square gallery-wrapped canvas

with a 1" drop on the sides. Here are just a few... 

India Ink, Graphite, & Pixels

This "Maritime Cats" series of images started off in analog form in India ink and graphite.

Then they were scanned and backgrounds were added digitally.
