i did this series of tech pen drawings of my cat, stormy, after moving back to LA and realizing I need more cohesive artwork on the walls.

cat #1 is stippled, cat #2 is scribbled, cat #3 is vertical hatching, cat #4 is a topography-like scribble (please click the image to enlarge). all were based on a single photo taken of stormy 2 days before we moved back.

Here is a charcoal drawing of 3 fruit bats on a giant leaf. Also a prismacolor drawing of a chameleon, a 1st anniversary present. It took much longer than expected…


i made these amigurumi food items for my friends, who all loved them. the fish taco and banana were made without the assistance of a pattern, but i think they still turned out adorable.

the cactus has got to be one of my all-time favorite amigurumi creations. the other thing is a venus flytrap, which didn’t turn out so well because usually there are more than one of them in the pot. the pig is angry!

i love making these little amigurumi items. the (life size) phallus was a gift for a friend and the toaster is around here somewhere..

i really enjoy the company of my cat, stormy. he’s a 3-year-old scottish fold and comes equipped with the most utterly vacuous expressions on his little face. this crosshatching is based on a photo i snapped of him while he was nestled atop my chest.

i showed up to the drop-in class once more (about 2 months later) and by chance, the same model was there. still, he is very trim & fit and fun to draw.

i was so excited to hear that the local arts council offered a drop-in figure drawing class for a paltry $12 (for three hours!). i had decided to forego the smudgy, messy chalk pastels, opting for prismacolors as my medium instead, and was pleased with the result.

the first drawing was done to commemorate a potluck hosted by my friends (i neglected to take  a proper picture). the second – well, i just like sushi, ok?
