Art Alley, Rapid City SD

This is an 11x14 drawing of an alley in Rapid City, SD. It was rendered in Prismacolor markers, Copic Markers, white Sharpie, and a G2 Pilot pen. It was my first attempt at a cityscape, and it was a lot of fun! The part I like best is the wall to the right. The parts I wish I could re-do are the bricks that make up the road, and the towers in the background.

South Dakota watercolor

5x8" watercolor painting on Canson paper. March 2014

5x8" watercolor. 2014


This is my first real animal portrait, and it didn't turn out too bad. It was drawn in white prismacolor and black graphite pencils on grey toned paper.

11x14 prismacolor and graphite pencil

This is a portrait of my son, done in graphite pencil and prismacolor pencil. The eyes are finished with a copic marker. There are some things that could be better, but for the most part, I love how this turned out!I liked the self portrait I completed earlier last year so much, I wanted to try another in the same style.
