I am a writer and visual artist specializing in children's books and adult fiction. I show my visual art regularly and make my living as full time artist. Sketching and drawing are a crucial part of my job.
I specialize in book design, cartooning, illustration, painting, pencil drawing, phtography, publishing, storyboards, writing.
Emma holds a mug. I like drawing hands and faces, so why not have them closer together?
Sometimes it's not just the face that make the drawing, but the cloths that fit.

I ran a figure drawing class in Victoria, B.C. for a couple years. It was a lot of fun and my drawing got better quickly.

A fun drawing to do. I usually do a lot of crosshatching, but for this one I went for the smoothness, better to capture the light, I suppose, where crosshatching can be a little distracting. Or look like hair! As some have said.
Steve is a musician and head sound engineer for Microsoft in Seattle. I drew him after visiting, trying to capture a bit o the otherworldliness of his music.
