“My Tail is delicious!” Sure, Mrs Squirrel. Delicious. What other lies do you have to perpetuate on the delicacy of squirrel anatomy? Squirrels aren’t exactly known for their honesty.
Bewick’s Wren Peep-Peeps. We found this nest so exposed but we had to get a quick photo. After the snap, we quickly covered the nest as it should have been and left it alone as much as possible. It’s so funny to see a nest with live hatchlings, so upclose, and below eye level. I […]

Starting month 5 with a simple snapshot of one of my bikes with a mural. I haven’t spent much time with the better camera in the last couple of weeks as I try to finish off some other creative projects that have taken me far longer than anticipated. This mural can be found at 15th […]

Another full weekend of drawing, tracing, rendering, and making vector art. I haven’t spent this much time on an art project in such a long time. It feels AWESOME to see something start to come together. I can hardly wait to share the full project with the rest of the world soon. Also, my first […]
