Come see me! Holiday show time!

Hey everyone! As the holidays draw near I will be selling my art at a select few Portland events! Come by and say howdy! I will be fully stocked with Haunted Legs books, Teeny Press prints (FRAMED!), and lots of new signed prints for your walls! Hope to see some of you there!



The Making of Underwater Plunder!

Neptune_submission_finalI have a BRAND NEW t-shirt design up for voting on Threadless!  It is part of their “Nautical” competition.  My plan is for it to come in two color schemes – “Deep ocean” for guys and “Oceanside” for girls!  I could really use your help in voting for it in the competition!
