Asleep in Love


15x20 Acrylic wash and ink. I used this as practice for the peices I did for "Life Comes in Pairs"

Life Comes in Pairs - Outlines







These are the outlines in ink for my pieces "Life Comes in Pairs" A show I did in Las Vegas, NV at Blackbird Studios (formerly Place Gallery). I showed on 9/3/10 and it was my first show. I was very hapy with the turn out and I'm thankful to have been lucky enough to show with great people and enjoy it with amazing friends.
Titles of each peice from top to bottom:
Waking to Her Love - Love
Lone Wolf, Lone Girl - Hate
A Life to Ponder - Life
Death Lives in a Snake Pit - Death
Wasted Years - War
Adrift at Peace - Peace
The themes range in 6 basic pairs that are essential in life, whether it be all internal on a personal level or external on a more global level. Symolism of animals, flowers and plants all coinside with each peice. More pictures to come.
Enjoy :)

This Town




I thought I posted this long ago, but now is better than never. Lawrence Goodwin, pen name of my very good friend David Small (who was also in a project called
Social Blonde Hair). He is currently writing for The Neave, and you can check out his work here: http://theneave.com/blogs/?uid=48 Please read his work and leave comments, it's UTTERLY AMAZING! I guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

This is a book design I helped create with the direction of Dave, of course. I own a copy, and I'm not sure if he still has it for sale online somewhere. It's a collection of brilliantly written short stories. I highly urge you to take a look and read some works, they can be found on The Neave's website.

Enjoy :)
