As soon as a warm day arrives after a frigid winter, I take the opportunity to canoe kayak with a friend. It is early Spring, but is the water too cold to catch any fish? Check out my latest video! Plus, there are Robins exploring the grass, looking for yummy treats. The early bird catches the worm, right?

Thanks for watching!

drawing: giant tortoise

March 6, 2022

I’ve been meaning to draw a Galapagos Turtle for a while. Here, the Giant Tortoise finds a lone berry tree. The tree is just big enough as a snack for this big turtle’s appetite.

A friend of mine is going away to college, and I will miss her. She is smart, bubbly and full of energy. Loves to tell me drama stories about life. But best of all, her smile is infectious.

I do a drawing to bid her farewell. She is standing at the foot of the famous Arches, because she loves to travel and to hike too. My illustration symbolizes her free-spirited attitude and to wish good luck on her new adventures.

drawing: the kingfisher

February 22, 2021

While I was fishing the other day, a bird, perched over the water, caught my eye. At first, I thought it was a Blue Jay because, well, it was blue, and it had a crest on its head. But then, it made a nice subtle chirping. Blue Jays actually make a loud alarming sound. So I knew this bird was different.

I continued to fish. An hour or so later, I saw the bird again. This time, the bird had a Bluegill in its mouth. The bluegill was almost as big as the bird itself! I suddenly realized that this bird is a Kingfisher!

I’ve seen nature shows that featured kingfishers and how good they are at catching their food from the water. And here it is right before my eyes. In honor of the sighting, I just had to draw the cute little bugger (when I got home).

Sorry to get so excited but I always wanted to see this amazing little bird in person. Plus, I am a birder enthusiast AND I love fishing. Birds that are made for catching fish are a win-win in my book :)

sketch: yellow perch

December 12, 2020

The Yellow Perch is a fish species found in North American rivers and lakes. They are a beautiful fish adorned with orange fins and a tiger-like pattern on its body. They are a cold-water fish, so they can be enjoyed for sporting well into the winter for ice fishing. Yellow Perch are probably the best tasting freshwater fish too, especially cooked in a fish fry.

This is my sketch of a Yellow Perch in all its vivid glory. I feature my drawing in my fishing video on my channel, about panfishing with fake maggots. Check it out if you haven’t already! My video is action-packed!

illustration: zombie dog

October 12, 2012

In the spirit of halloween coming, here is a drawing of a dog of the dead. He is very, very hungry… for brains.

A couple of years ago, I did art of a zombie guy and a zombie girl. Looks like it’s becoming a series of spookiness.

On a side note, New York Comic Con begins now. So, stay tuned for a posting of some of my photography at the convention that I will share with you.
