late show with stephen colbert

Recently I had the great honor of having my artwork selected to appear on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Every Friday they show one portrait of Colbert (dubbed Fan Art Friday) immediately after the monologue.

On Friday, May 17, 2019, my art appeared on the same stage as Mr. Colbert. I cannot adequately express how much of an honor it was to have my work share the same stage as one of my comedy heroes. Here is my iPhone video of the moment. (I haven’t been able to download a better resolution video of it; if you can help me find it online somewhere, please let me know.)


discarded couches of portland, amazon delivery edition

For the past few weekends I’ve been delivering packages for Amazon. It’s been an interesting experience, and one of the perks is I get to spot a lot more discarded couches! Here is the first dispatch from the field. These couches come from literally all over the city.


monster truck monday

For whatever reason, I’ve been drawing monster trucks a lot lately. I’ve never seen one in person, but of all the land vehicles, they seem like the most fun to draw.


recent coloring pages

Per LQ’s requests, I’ve drawn up a whole new batch of coloring pages. These characters are featured in Thomas & Friends, a decades-long saga about the trains (and a few other vehicles) that keep the beautiful island of Sodor running.

Feel free to print and color. Please share your results with me! These are not for sale in any way since I do not own the rights and have no wish to be sued by Sir Topham Hatt.


notre dame

In the year 2000 I had the great fortune of seeing Notre Dame in person.

When I studied abroad in Scotland I took a short trip to Paris, and wandered the streets without much of a plan. I turned a corner and there was Notre Dame, just sitting there as though it wasn’t one of the most beautiful things in the world. Of course I knew better

Later that night I met a friend and we sat inside the cathedral while the organist played Christmas music. I could feel history as I’d never felt it before. I believe in the importance of art, and of place, and this is possibly the best merger of the two.
