I recently completed this illustration. My challenge to myself was to recreate this image based off of a picture I found using only shape layers and layer effects. I wanted to see if I could do it, and the end result is an (almost) infinitely scaleable image. 44 shape layers, no pixel layers, no smart objects.
An illustration from a while back. I haven’t had much opportunity to make things for blog posts, at least not that I can show yet. On the plus side I’m done with taxes. Now I want to watch Guardians of the Galaxy again…
I made a shoe. Under Armour Curry 1. Go Warriors!
This is from a while back while I was still teaching myself some C4D. Now that I don’t have access to that program anymore, I guess it’s time to learn Blender. For now, enjoy a shark that started out as a cube.
I apologize for the lack of posts recently. Katie and I have been busy trying to get all of our things from California to Oregon. It’s an adventure we’ve been hoping, planning, and dreaming for the last few years. Cheers to a new year and the possibilities, hardships, challenges, triumphs, and learnings that come with it.

To celebrate a day that we thought we would get actual hoverboards, I created a virtual hoverboard in C4D. I decided to go for a technical line drawing feel. Still have a few more things to iron out, but it looks okay from this angle!
Back in high school I tried to get into 3D by making LEGO renderings in Bryce. I’ve currently been attempting to teach myself (with the help of YouTube) Cinema 4D, and I figured I should probably start with LEGO again. It’s been a lot of fun to play with a more powerful program, and to know a little more about photography and lighting than I did before. Here’s my first Cinema 4D model, I’ll post more as I finish and learn more.
I had never really watched Futurama until Katie and I started it from the beginning not long ago. I’ve really been enjoying the humor, characters, character development, and animation. To celebrate, I made this ship illustration.
Finally getting around to posting an illustration that I finally got around to making. I’d been tossing this idea around in my head for a while, and it took me a while to get it done. Now it’s taken me forever to post it, but here it is! Also, I’m still not sure how to decide if I should call it a buffalo or a bison.
It’s always a little frightening for me to ask someone to do a portrait. I’m grateful that Linda wanted to shoot with me, it was great to chat with her about life and photography. She has such a different perspective on life, and it was amazing to get a glimpse into some of her experiences.
