Just a Few More to Look at.

Since it's been so long I'm going to to just post as much as I can find.
 This was the cover picture for a Coloring Book I did of some friends that got married.
And here is a sketch. I think I did this to try out a new tablet.
And here are just a bunch of early American History pictures.

Possible Project

I can't give too
many details at this point but here is a picture I did as a sample for a new project.

Never Too Early for Halloween!

I've been working on making these paper dolls for Halloween. I would would like to have them finished before September this year so that they can be available for the month of October. I want to have a little boy and little girl available in Magnets so that they can hang on the fridge and have enough options to have a new costume most of the days of the month.

Busy with Business.

 As I see my recent illustrations I am reminded of a quote from the "Muppets' Christmas Carol"
 Say it with me now.   "Business. You will love business. It is the American way!"
 "Oh, it is the British way!"
 It seems that everything I do these days is related to business and finances.
 You'd think that with all I learn about it that I would be a heck of a lot better with my own business and finances.
Oh well, I guess there's nothing else I can do except trust to my skill and luck.

Halloween is almost here!

Hello my friends, Halloween is once again almost upon us! Don't for one second think that I skipped out on doing some Halloween illustrations this year. Here are all of the pictures that I made for work.
I bet you never knew that you can turn honey into gold! Well, you can't. But, apparently witchy bees can.
I think that a living mummy that could sting you and fly would be much worse than the regular kind.

Although, this is what it was going to look like originally but, my boss thought it was too scary. Too bad. :(
Here is a little costume for one of our icons.
Here is what the original icon looks like carved on a pumpkin.
And here is the hive.

As you can tell this has been a busy month for me. I got lots of Halloween fun is for work. Yay!

Goodbye to old friends.

It was sometimes a challenge being the youngest in my family. My bed time was before my older siblings' bed times and I was always afraid that if I went to sleep that I would miss out on something and my older brothers were always watching some movie (that I really shouldn't see at that age) that I really wanted to see. I remember watching plenty of movies from the hallway to the living room. As I've grown older and have started taking closer looks at myself, I've realized that I am still in a way afraid of missing out. Right now I am feeling this quite strong because I have some friends that are moving across the world to Falmouth England. I met them at BYU-Idaho and they have really pulled me up the ladder with them. I said goodbye to them the other day and I am sad to see them go. I really wish them the best of luck and want them to do well but I kind of have that feeling that I used to get when I was a kid and I was told to go to bed while my siblings were still having fun.

Adam and Erin Taylor have been very inspiring friends to me. I met them in our Narritive Illustration class at BYU-Idaho. Erin has lots of amazing raw talent and Adam is very bossy (in a good way) and has always pushed me to try harder and get better.

It has been an honor for me to be invited into their lives. It was a growing and fun experience to be able to do and show our BFA projects together.

It has been great during all of the times I have been doubting myself to know that they have had my back and that they believe in me and my abilities. I really have been blessed with good friends. I just want to wish them the best! And I want to let them know that I know that really I am not being left behind but because of them I can now fly high and this is an opportunity for open doors for them and me!
