I was having some feelings and had some free time. This is not much more than an experimentation in illustration. I’m getting used to drawing with a tablet and loving it for the ease. The barrier to entry is fairly low with only a decent knowledge of Photoshop and a $50 tablet required (here’s mine).Read More
Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.
This piece was commissioned by Downtown Cornerstone Church. It is common to worship God through music and the preached word but they desire to teach the congregation how to worship through other mediums, including the visual arts. I so appreciate that. This is part of that initiative.Read More
Over a year ago, I got married. We worked really hard on the aesthetics that went into the event and I never shared it.

But we survived, miraculously frostbite free.Read More
It is crazy how you forget the magic a year held. Looking back, I see such an abundance of incredible moments that, at the time, didn’t feel as special as they look now. I’d like to work on observing and being thankful for what’s happening right in front of me but even if that isn’t entirely possible, an exercise such as this brings so much joy! Maybe I’ll do it again sometime but this year, I’m going to try to just live it.Read More
