ARCHIVE: November, 2010
Trying some design ideas for Freedom. This is Fort Burgoyne, the main headquarters of the British Army and Gentleman Johnny Burgoyne in Boston. It is situated atop the Boston Common and has a 360 degree view of the rebellious city. It is the largest, most well-fortified fort in the British Empire, and is also where [...]
Just some character concept sketches for Francis Marion, a player in Freedom.
There’s this really great card game called 45′s that I haven’t played since I was in High School. It’s a game of the Merrimac Valley. I’m not sure if it was born here, but I certainly have never seen it played anywhere but here. Funny, because it is a really great game, up there with [...]
Phoebe and Billy, meet the internet.
The Ale House in Amesbury is an excellent place to drink beer. Not the best place to draw, but a good place to drink up. Gives this sleepy little town a bit of oomph.

Just got a new, quite large, watercolor moleskine for my birfdee though, so I’m endeavoring to do more of the observational sketching that’s in me blood. The first page of a sketchbook should never be a masterpiece, [...]
I don’t know about you guys but I hate going to the grocery store. HATE. Luckily for me, Liz loves going, so while she shops I can just sit in the car and draw the splendor that is our modern consumerist society. I’m not thrilled with how this one came out. Trying to be a [...]
We’ve been talking about this for a while, Liz and I. I can’t quite remember how it all came about, but somehow we decided we were going to one day have a farm, with all the animals and babies included. I drew a picture of it for her birthday, and am now sharing it with [...]
