Something is hiding in the patch of Shrek-Ears.


Springing in Springtime Portland. Been a while since I’ve ridden the Timberjack. I can hardly way for everything to dry out a little so I can get out onto the trails again.  


Oh dandelion, you’re such a dandy lion. The mark of summer is here and the sun is making everything and everyone go crazy. Bask in it’s light and warm as long as possible, for the skies of gray soon return to bring the rains and pains. Sure, it’s a weed, but it’s one of those […]


Dog-sitting Kylee and Loa. Kylee was so excited to see me, she burst into howls and was practically flipping. Spending some quality time with the beasts seemed to calm them down. Now, cool dogs walk away from explosions. But I don’t have any explosions, so here is Kylee looking cool. Doo-dee-doo.


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 […]


Even while spending my entire weekend in front of a computer monitor, I still found a moment to appreciate the birds in our front yard. Black-capped Chickadee.  


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 […]


The slightly bright and non-forboding antique build is a gentle reminder of repurposing old for new.  The Bakery Blocks building is now home to a dozen companies that bring livelihood to the area.


A real world example of what artists call “1-point perspective”. Notice how this road of petals disappears into a single point in the center. Billions of blossoms died to pave the way for a lady and her dog to “go walkies”.  


*Knock-Knock* Who’s there? *Knock-knock-knock* Who is THERE?! *Knock-knock-knock-knock* *knock-knock* Hmm. Bushtits aren’t very good at knock-knock jokes. We should probably replace that window.


We have decided to name him “Dirk”. He is Dirk the Deck Duck.


Draw the dog you want, not the dog you have. We also don’t have a dog. I spent most of this day working on a drawing project rather than running around taking photos of real dogs. Apologies for potato resolution of the potato dog. You should enjoy Patao_dog. We call him Potato-dog.  


  Back home at the Hunny House in Portland after driving for 2+ hours to get from Eugene back to Portland, I’ve spent the better part of my day, and well, weekend working on a series of drawings that I hope to share very soon. Just in time to watch one of the first buds […]


Second day in Eugene, wandering our AirBnB’s property I happen to come across this tiny house hanging in a tree. It made me think about our own tiny house, the Cozy Cottage in which we were guests of the weekend, and how small of a house a bird needs to be “happy” as much as […]


  Our first visit to the Cascades Raptor Center in Eugene, OR. We’ve been wanting to get over here for a couple of years now and finally had the opportunity to spend an evening with these amazing birds. This Gyrfalcon named Nike really grabbed my attention with her remaining eye and curiosity. From CRC’s website: […]


Yo spring, I see what you’re up to. Bring MORE of all this sunshine, flowers, spider webs, and overall spring time happiness.  


At the entrance to the Oregon Zoo, there stood a mountain goat. Its name unknown to most. As rain pelted its back, it eyed us with a dark stare, but soon something changed its posture. “The Mountains Are Calling and I Must Go!” Alas, our friend is still growing fat in the loving arms of captivity.


Peaking through the portal to get a glimpse of the world as it is. Or is this a reflection of what was?


Spring flowers and intentional BOKE. Bokelicious.


Going through some old sketches. 


The sun is out, it’s a GREAT day, and I’m staying indoors all weekend to work on personal projects.


One of my favorite photos from today’s product shoot. Get Inspired, Not Lost.


I’m always intrigued by the easy access of this roof. The razor wire only adds to the forbidden fruit of this rooftop and the magical views it keeps out of my grasp. When this building was designed and built, were the people of that era completely uninterested in exploring the bounds of architecture? Honestly, I don’t […]


Branching out with blossoms. Spring is Portland is pretty rad.


Fallalahlumeengohs. This was probably the first time I’ve been able to snap a pic during daylight hours and no vehicles parked in front of it.


One of our clients sent us an awesome gift of appreciation. Lesson learned: Photographing glass is tricky!


First thing this morning, we opened our front door to find a stunned Anna’s Hummingbird right next to the doorway. We can only assume it was in a territorial chase when it hit the front door and knocked itself silly.  At first, we thought it was dead, but after Audrey scooped him up in her […]


Upgrading my workspace. Sometimes processing photos on a laptop screen isn’t as satisfying as working on a 24-inch 4k monitor.  Photoshop/Illustrator/Premiere/Lightroom on one monitor, while watching Adventure Time on the other.


Something about the front of the Polaris Slingshot reminds me of “The Future” and/or a jumping spider.


It’s really neat to see Ride with GPS (my job) in the latest issue of Men’s Journal. Neat.


It’s been a while since I’ve been able to see parts of Portland from an angle well above ground level. It definitely helps me see the city and lights in a different way. Whatever is going down in Pioneer Square reminds me of the latter part of ET:The Extra Terrestrial when the federal/scientist/authorities put the […]
