Monica Vitti


I constantly watch old movies on FilmStruck. The hairdo's rule in the 1950's.

Ornaments


This is a drawing I did of my in-laws Christmas tree ornaments, layered one on top of the other until I formed a mountain.

New Ceramic


This is my latest ceramic in progress. I finished the painting on greenware. Now it goes into the kiln for the first firing to see what happens. Fingers crossed.

I've Made Contact


Most kids or young hipsters won't even understand what this is. This is an illustration joke. I've made my drawings look as if they are photographs on a contact sheet. What is a contact sheet, you might ask? It's sort of like a rotary phone dial. Something commonly used a century ago. When one used to take photographs, they just didn't instantly appear in a folder in your pocket. You used to have to do something called, waiting. Once your photographs were taken, you brought the unprocessed film to a print shop. A day later you got a contact sheet. That was rows of tiny images printed on a single page. You'd use a magnifier type object (loop) to suss out the ones you desired. Then those selects got printed out, after more, you guessed it, WAITING. Half my life in advertising was spent hunched over contact sheets. So this advert I did for my new book is targeted at older folks. People who would know what a subway token is.

Let's Meat In The Dog Park


Ohh how cute. Can I pet your doggii...? WAIT, that's actually one of those things I buy shrink-wrapped in a supermarket. Ew, I don't like thinking about those things as animals with feelings and families. BUT, can I pet the other one? Ohh, ew wait, that's one of those things that I can buy in a bucket at KFC. That drawing is not right because it tries to get me to think of THEM as animals with feelings. I'm going to unfollow you. Me gobbling down a body part or two of one of those things at a drive-through, fast food window is perfectly fine but you making that drawing is GROSS.

A Most Well Known Camera


My camera makes people want to take up the hobby themselves. It is an inspiration to many. You can see the results of my hard work in my new book.
