here are some random drawings from the sketchbook. tombstones have been a constant theme lately. let me know what you think.


the saddest unicorn

i have recently been exploring some new characters and ideas in my drawing, etc. i definitely have a lot of tweaking to do but i am really enjoying them. especially my newest friend, the saddest unicorn. he is actually a binicorn cause he has two horns. he's a social outcast and most likely a political prisoner. i'm still working on his background story . . .



ironically, with all the work i've had to do on my art school application i haven't had a whole lot of time to just focus on creating more art. but here is one item i've mustered.
homoerotic cowboy with watercolor on wood.

penitente canyon and kittens

so sorry for the vastly overdue post. i am embarrassed to see only one other post for november. things have been pretty busy with not a lot of down time with internet access. i also like to spend a lot of my down time sleeping/sitting in my big wonderful bed.
that being said, let's dive into a random assortment of photos from the last month:

at the beginning of the month montrose
got a much needed bath. kate made the
valiant effort and was quite successful.

one saturday katie, charis, ben and i went
to rainbow's end monte vista and picked up
these sweet sweaters. i also managed to find
a polaroid camera, a skateboard and a radio.
all for less than 25 bucks! what a steal. this
photo was taken right before katie and i
went to see across the universe, now one of
my favorite movies ever.

a couple weekends ago kate and i brought
montrose to penitente canyon, northwest
of alamosa, along the san juan mountains.
the three of us had a blast jumping around
the rocks, enjoying the sun and the view.

we've had a few family dinners recently including
multiple soup nights and this evening of tortillas.
will is a master with a rolling pin.

two new additions to the monterey menagerie
came a little over a month ago when a couple of
mangy alley cats found their way to my heart.
above is tink. she is tiny and wily and meows
a lot. below is taco or taquito. i love him so. he
is an adventurer, explorer and trash chaser.

so thats really all i have to say about my life right now. ive got a few adventures lined up including a balloon fest in gallup, new mexico and a winter journey to st.louis, missouri.
with my grad deadline fast approaching and big thanksgiving and holiday events lined up at la puente i am pretty busy, crazy and excited. more updates and hopefully more art to come.

all hallow's eve

last night we had a little get together at the monterey house to celebrate halloween. it was fairly low key with a few interesting costumes. here are some highlight photos.

michael wore a pretty hideous mask.

amy, ben and charis of the voldemort house dressed in a
rockies theme. amy was a dead rockies cheerleader, ben
an umpire and charis a world series loser. oh, i mean,
rockies player. sorry rockies, but the sox are it.

katie and annie claimed to be in costume
but im pretty sure they were just HOT.

andrew was a zombie cow back from the dead
to eat the flesh of his own. that's why he had
mcdonald's wrappers attached to him.

much of the party was devoted to mastering
some hot dance moves. here charis shows
us the money.
