Reuben Rides the Rails now available

Hi Everyone!
My first full picture book, "Reuben Rides the Rails", is now available for purchase! You can order the books from Amazon by clicking here. Also, on March 6th, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis will be holding a "grand release" for the book. From 11 AM - 2 PM that day, the public is welcome to come to meet both the author and me during a book signing. If you come, don't forget to stop by the "All Aboard" exhibit to see the real Reuben Wells Steam Engine that inspired the story! Hope to see you there!

New Digital Piece

I've been working on this piece for about a month now, from the sketch to as you see it now. This has been much more challenging than my previous digital pieces. It was my intent for this to be a more finished piece rather than an experimental exercise. Thank you to everyone who has seen this piece in its earlier stages and given advice! I am very pleased with the result, and have found myself feeling more comfortable with with a few favorite digital brushes. I'm looking forward to my next digital piece! It is fun to split my days between traditionally painted client projects and my own personal digital work. Thanks also to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, for writing "Hound of the Baskervilles". The audio book has been entertaining me through all of my projects today, and between that and a cup of hot chocolate, I have had a very nice afternoon in the studio!
