The above images are studies for big ideas. The creatures and objects that appear in these sketches have a special personality or look which I like to document for later works. I really enjoy desert and arctic landscapes, for they both seem mountainous and baron, but at the same time have so much life. Dogs and cats will always be favorites of mine, for they have such wonderful spirits and really make the world a brighter place for me. I love owls, foxes, bats, frogs…pretty much all creatures great and small! I enjoy drawing them and recording my experiences with them. It’s always such a treat to see one of these beauties in the wild and I truly treasure these moments.
