AutoZone and ArtsMemphis...

...are two entities that have interesting capitalization. They are also center stage in this fun little drawing I made this morning. I feel like I have to emphasize MORNING because I woke up at 6:30, which is something I haven't done since I worked for a moving company. By the time I got to the AutoZone HQ downtown, the chill of February had worked its magic better than any expresso shot could have. When I checked in, I was listed as a "performer" working with ArtsMemphis which, after good half-hour, felt like a bit of a misnomer. Granted, I was technically performing, furiously doodling away at my easel- however, context makes a big difference. In the sleek downtown entrance lobby, I exuded the kind of electricity that one enjoys from watching a badminton match on ESPN5. That said, it was still fun to draw and I thank ArtsMemphis for the gig and AutoZone for letting me slap ink around in their front door.


This was a birthday gift to my sweeter-than-all-get-out girlfriend. I surprised her with it a few days ago and she loved it (Thank goodness!). It was quite the task to get it printed, most of it involving multiple bike trips to find a place that makes decent color prints. Surprisingly, the local Kinkos gave me pretty good results, considering they gave me free reign to adjust the print settings on their computer.

When Hypertrichosis Becomes a Theme...

These were long overdue for posting. I finished the first one when I had some free time at work, and it was suggested that I make some more. The next thing you know there's an odd looking family of four.
