Pioneers Of Geospatial Imaging, Ink Lines

For my black linework, I use a combination of brush/ink for initial lines, Adobe Illustrator, and Manga Studio. First, I draw directly over the pencil lines on bristol board paper. Then, I scan the art into Photoshop.

Pioneers of Geospatial Imaging, Pencil Drawings

One of my projects as a Planet Labs Artist in Residence is going to be commemorative portrait drawings of people that inspired others to push things far enough so that we have the ability to take photos of the whole planet from space. The first set in the series will be those that pioneered imaging of the planet in new and strange ways.

2015, My Year in Review

Every year I'm a little more flabbergasted by how fast it goes. It's the very end of November as I write this and there's still a small chunk of the year left, but in a blink that will over too. Part of it is just being continually occupied with projects, I suppose. To that end, 2015 has definitely been my busiest year as a working artist. So much happened both professionally and personally. Right now I'm still riding the wave of gratitude and tryptophan from Thanksgiving, so I'm feeling introspective I guess. This year I've learned a lot about community, family, letting people in and letting some people go. It's difficult to outline everything that happened, and some stuff you wouldn't believe me if I told you anyway. Here are some highlights.

I've written a lot of these recaps over the years and it seems like I always end it with, "Who knows what 20-- has in store??", but this time I don't think it's ever been more honest. I honestly have no idea what's going on next year beyond parts of January. I hope it's as interesting as this year and maybe even just a little better. I wish my friends, family, and community of local weirdos the best for the coming year. I'm just glad to be here. Talk to you soon.

X-Arcade "Space Race" Cabinet

Earlier this year, I designed an cocktail arcade cabinet for X-Arcade. Photography just came back today, and I have to say that I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!
