Had a chance to surf some amazing waves while in Maine, this place was out of the way and hard to find, deep water beach break. Shot a bunch of great pics, going to use in my Hinterland series.

Cyanotype “sketches”

Cyanotype sketch02Cyanotype sketch

Working with cyanotype on paper, the primitive photo process is simple and fun to work with, exposing the paper using the sun is interesting as you can actually "paint" by timing the exposure and positioning, here are a two examples from yesterday, these are available for sale as prints.

“sketching” illustrations


Working out some sketches for a children's book, been fun working in Adobe illustrator again, it's like riding a bike you never forget once you learn the basics. Going for an angular and blocky style in the characters, incorporating textures from my paintings for color, work in progress.

Illustrations with painting textures

Illustrations 01

Working on a series of truck, and vehicle illustrations for a childrens book, during the process I scanned and photographed a bunch on my paintings, and scraps from the studio, tweaked in Photoshop, then used as swatches in Adobe Illustrator to color in the parts of the firetruck and monster truck, next the police car, I'm thinking of using these painting textures for entire book.
