The Building of a Burger

Sometimes my drawings come with 
not only my thoughts,
 but with the drawing's "noise".
Here's how one drawing for a Weber job developed.

Corporate Story Telling

Where did the idea for a corporate promotional book,
 "How to turn a Sows Ear into a Silk Purse" come from?
One day I carried my 24"x24" watercolor around in my portfolio.
Some time later, 
this is what I did for them:

Small Towns

I've been called a Cross Categorical Artist, which seems to fit.
Yes, I do more than just draw.
I bring a wide range of creativity to projects.
is leading me into paying some interesting attention to other small towns.
Here's the first WhiteLine print from my Dodgeville block.
15.5" x 23.5",right off the block, it no longer feels like paper, 
but a well slept in bed sheet. It will look really good once it's flattened.

Road Construction Map Making

So, sometimes one must get creative with what one does with their abilities.
The News-Sickle-Arrow  Editor, Erin Vander Weele, wrote a good article to accompany the front page map.
A work in progress, the Black Earth Creek wasn't yet blue.
On May 21st, a full page of map was published
in the Summer Times pullout section
of the Isthmus. Wisconsin's alternative newspaper.
55,000 of them!
Now there are postcards...
Contact me if 11"x17" prints on acid free art paper,
giclees up to 30" wide are desired.
Yes, I freelance.
I can be hired to draw a map for you.

Map making for road construction

I've been working on deciphering
the road complexities 
of the US Highway 14 (Main Street) Reconstruction
that began this month.
Not knowing it was happening, 
I wound up getting very lost just trying to get a cup of coffee,
and then got lost again on the way out.
Since I've got this ability to render visual order to chaos,
I thought I'd make a small, easy to understand map for CrossRoads Coffeehouse,
which grew, and grew, and grew some more,
until now it's almost officially printed.
I want it printed by Trout Days!!
