I spend a lot of time sketching for my own enjoyment and relaxation.
I specialize in graphic design, illustration, pen and ink, technical illustration.
Drawn in my moleskine sketchbook with a fountain pen. I am having so much fun with my women in armour series. Can you tell that she has leather armour on? I am not sure how well that is conveyed.
For the past years I have been mainly painting in acrylic. But since my last show I have taken this time to return to my love of drawing and am mostly experimenting. I am using fountain pen for the first time and really enjoying it.
An experiment to see if I could represent decay using line. I learned a lot.
This is the other half of Return of the Polar Bear, a drawing in my moleskine. It is after Pieter Bruegel the Elder, an artist from the 16th century. I began it as a way to try out his intricate use of line and hatching. The subject matter altered some along the way - his etching didn't have any animals, and of course mine had to be all about the animals. I also simplified. It turned out to be a wonderful lesson.
My family used to go to the same cabins at Netart’s Bay every year for a week at the beach. A happy memory.
The cat on the left goes by Claude, whereas the name of the one on the right is still unknown.
When your own son calls you anonymous, you probably don’t exist. He likes to be funny on greeting cards. Hahaa! Usually my doodles are a one to two day thing. I continued adding to this one over a period of a couple weeks. Life has been a blur lately. It feels good to be able to post something again.
A biomechanoid wolverine.
Canis latrans. Coyote. Something different than my regular Australian animals and plants. Much like the fox I always felt there to be something romantic about the nomadic wandering animals like the Coyote.
Inspired by sweet Willow from „VanCatMeow“ the travelling Cat.
Illustrated with Ink and Ink-Pens on Paper.
The endangered Black-footed Tree Rat or Djintamoonga is a native found in the northern regions of Australia. One of the country’s largest rodents, they are threatened by local extinction due to the presence of invasive feral cats and habitat change.

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.
In his seventies, this guy was a great model. Fun to draw. Lots of character.
