The Beard - In Photographs.

It was only right that we document S's beard before it was downsized. These photos were taken around 5 months in, with minimal trimming.

Don't let the wax fool you: that moustache was unruly.

And a couple shots of the sunset that same evening:

"Shed - WV" - Farewell, Autumn.

After a wonderfully lazy vacation and quiet, no-turkey day at home, S. and I are in the spirit of Christmas. While we don't necessarily go for the shopping madness, we've already dragged out our decorations despite the lingering warm weather.

Now we just have to find a Christmas Tree!

Here is a little drawing to commemorate the passing of Fall, and all of the beautiful colors that come with it.

"Vintage - WV" - A Gift.

Best of luck to Stephanie & Heath as they settle in to their new life together as married folk.

It was a challenge finding just the right objects to suit her style, but in the end, I think I made the right choices: antique perfume bottles in an array of colors, nestled in a bold black & white fabric. I hope she enjoys the finished drawing as much as I do. I'm just honored to get a smidgen of wall space in their home. =)

"Treasured - WV" - Guitar Illustration

Marker & colored pencil on marker paper.

Paper Size: 5" x 5"
Image Size: 4" x 4"

This is a drawing with close-up detail of one of my guitars. The instrument was given to me by my grandfather when I was a teenager, and though I'm more apt to pick up an acoustic these days, it remains one of my most beloved keepsakes.
