• This past June, my family and I went camping in the mountains of Tennessee with some friends of ours. In addition to watercolors, I got to do some light painting/drawing. I’m not great at it, but my friend Albert (http://jurinaphotography.com/) directed me every step of the way to some cool…

  • Here it is; my magnum opus of construction paper. With the exception of the “comics code authority” stamp and the four heads in the Marvel Comics header, everything here is cut paper. I only gave in on those two things because I simply don’t have the tools or ability to…
