Pen and Ink Drawings

A birthday card for a friend

I had the privilege to work with my friends in the punk band Belvedere on the cover of their fifth album "The Revenge of the Fifth". Unfortunately they decided that a hand-drawn album cover didn't quite work for what they needed, but used my drawing as the basis for a digitally re-worked cover. I feel that this is the best pen and ink work I've done.

This is a detail of a work I made when my wife was pregnant with our first child. Every week I drew a life-size drawing of the progress of our child's growth in utero on tissue and layered them one atop the other on the painting. This was an interesting juxtaposition of layers of the work in progress.
