If you used to follow me here on Dreampunk Geek I’ve retired this blog and created a site focusing on my art.  I’d love it if you came and visited me at

Here are a few samples in case you are interested:

Sweatshirt Girl Sketch

9 May

Home computer is temporarily out of commission so I’ve only been doing pencil sketches.

Exploring new styles.  I’m hoping to achieve a grittier look with more expressive characters.

Headphones Girl – a Portrait

Some more practice in Coral X3. Loving this program and how painterly it is, but so much to learn.

Wonderful Webcomics

20 Feb

I would just like to note that webcomics can be surprisingly wonderful.

Strays Online: Is a story I’ve followed for about a year.  The art is stunning.  The story is compelling and keeps me on the edge.  The best part is the characters.  (<3 Holland)  They are dynamic, motivated, and quirky.  I can’t help but love and root for them.

Here is a very short summary of the comic from the about page: Meela is a young, orphaned lupian (a race of people with wolf-like features) who is struggling to survive on her own. A chance encounter on less than pleasant terms teams her up with Feral, another lupian who happens to be a mute as well as one of the best mercenaries in the land, and who is not quite so welcoming of her forced company as she would like to believe.

A Redtail’s Dream: Is a new discovery that I’m currently in the process of reading.  Seriously loving the light hearted feel and dreamy atmosphere.

The story so far is about a magical fox who accidentally gets a man and his dog stuck inside the aurora borealis.  The fox sends the pair into the dream realm to rescue their friends and villagers who are stuck in a land of dreams.  (Ok, my description is lacking.  Check out the comic.  It is a lot cooler than I make it sound.  I promise!)
