Welcome to my art & creative blog. I am an artist in the NY metro area. I create illustrations in watercolor, pencil, pen/ink and digital mediums. The subject matter of my work is mostly about the Outdoors & Nature, but you can also see other themes such as figure drawing, sports and cartoons. Comments and Likes are appreciated! My policy is if you leave a comment or ‘like’ my posts, I will happily check out your blog and do so in return.

I have an online store with some of my artwork for sale. Feel free to visit my store and take a peek. Please follow this blog or my instagram (@designosaur.us) for regular updates of my projects.

As a bonus, I enjoy creating Outdoor & Nature videos of my mini adventures on YouTube. It features canoeing, fishing, biking and hiking. In addition, there is pet turtle advice and gear reviews. Please visit youtube.com/siralbertus and if you like them, subscribe for more.

Thank you for visiting!

    Enjoyed browsing through your portfolio and blog sites. You are soooo talented! Loved the photos of your biking in the Catskills, the pets, and your various trips. Especially liked your portfolio with the winter scene and other nature scenery.

    We were thrilled to meet Bert, the Shading Art Director, at Pixar studios. What a friendly, down-to-earth fellow he seems to be. Also video taped his question-and-answer session after we saw the film he worked on, “WALL-E”. Did you see this movie?

    sorry, i just have seen yout entry on my blog now. so iam very, very sorry!
    thank you for the nice compliment on my about me!
    “Kunstlicht” is a event in oberhausen ( city in germany) where 18 places open their galleries one night! you can travel from place to place, all near together and you can show u paintings there. thats where i had my first exhibition in november 2009.
    nice greetings and take care,

  4. Hi, Al, would it be possible to use your 9/17/09 illustration of a blue crab for the back image on a limited run of t-shirts for a crab-feast at a co-worker’s house, this month?

    Many of us at National Geographic get together for a few bushels of crabs at our co-workers house on Kent Island, on the eastern short of the Chesapeake Bay in September each year, and I wanted to do a nice t-shirt for everyone to mark the occasions.

    Your design seemed very nice and appropriate for this purpose. Could you let me know what your fee would be to reproduce the image on 40 – 80, maybe as many as 100 t-shirts for this event?

    Is would have to be quick, though because its held this year on 9/17. What’s your size? We’ll send you one too. Could you supply a larger scan than is available on the web?

    Next year we’re hoping to get them done by Crazy Shirts in Hawaii – if we get the right design (your image plus wording) it might turn into something for several of our friends, who run restaurants on the outer banks, etc. Just thinking beyond the current project.

    Let us know, Cheers, Tom & Janne Puckett

    I don’t know why but your site feels so fresh to me. If I can smell it, it would be fresh mint leaves in a nice kind of way.

      I would love to see your abstract painting.
      Do you paint food as subjet matter?

      Your blog looks so professional with great healthy recipes.

      Thank you in return!

      • Oh than you so much!! No, I don’t paint food, just abstract with different shapes and mediums and bold colors. My style is similar to the big bold abstract styles like Kandinsky and Rothko. :)
        I look forward to visiting your blog :)
