A double page spread for my Nature Zine! I am probably doing the interior in black and white but thought it would be nice to add a bit of color to this anyway.

Another exercise for my editorial illustration portfolio. This one was a piece I created after reading about how a man made reservoir in Thailand brought about the extinction of a majority of species who lived in that area within ten years. There were a few articles on it but this was the one I first saw, over at the NY Times.

Another year, another batch of photos of my birds in the Christmas Tree! It’s been a busy week so far, have so many projects I want to work on and not enough time.

More sketches! These are from Tuesday’s visit to the Museum of Natural History, finally got a decent drawing of the buffalo.

More sketches from when I drew at the Museum of Natural History earlier this month! Done in SKB pen and I added some texture and color in photoshop.

Sorry for the lack of updates this week, but was spending a few days in NYC. Here are some sketches I made while in the Museum of Natural History last Thursday! And I threw in one I did of Bradley James from Merlin. Ugh, his nose is perfection.

Sketch dump time! Haven’t posted things from my sketchbook in a while so here you go. Been working on portraits, took a quick drawing trip to the Museum of Natural History on Thursday, and still addicted to Once Upon a Time. Also ordered a new batch of SKB pens since I’m on my last one…

This week’s Illustration Friday is Disguise! I had a lot of free time during the Hurricane since I lost power for two days and internet/tv for three, I managed to finish this piece Monday night. For this idea, I always thought sheep have the same shape as a bush so I gave a more camouflaged look here.

Dug out my scanner, here are some things that were in my sketchbook.

Got to draw for a few hours Wedneday at the Museum of Natural History. My favorite place in the world next to Central Park Zoo.

Some more endangered animals, peek at the abc book I’m working on. Debating whether I should keep scanning these or try to photograph them, I feel they lose some of their depth and luminance with the scanner. But it’s soo hard to get that nice crispness with a camera and tripod….

Sketches from today’s trip to the Museum of Natural History with Jess Yeomans. Discovered a new section I haven’t been to with reptiles and a group of Komodo dragons eating a wild boar.
