My grandpa gave me his grandfather's pocket watch today. So much cooler than the apple watch.

Here’s what I did this weekend! I’ve had an urge to make this ever since I visited Seattle a few years ago. Also, this prop will show up in a future project of mine. Check it out!

Kite

Kite Scene Finished!

Well, usually silence on the blog means I’m not making a lot of art. However, I’ve been spending so much time making that I haven’t been able to share it on my blog. Recently, I finished the kite scene of the “Boney” book. Here it is! More to come very soon!

Sneak Preview

I’ve been getting ready to shoot a scene from “Boney – A Real Crack Up.” Obviously there are no characters in the scene yet. I’ve been working more on lighting and placement of the props, but it’s starting to get me excited!

Making of the Ice Cream Truck

Well, I’m currently working on a children’s book written by Karen Myrick, a nurse practitioner and faculty member at the Quinnipiac University School of Nursing. I’m very excited about it! Every now and then I’ll be posting to the blog here showing some behind the scenes photos. Today, a pretty minor prop in one of the scenes that I had a lot of fun with…AN ICE CREAM TRUCK!!!
