Well I’m eleven months into my a year in art challenge. I just completed posting the month of November. You can see it here. One more month to go. I have so enjoyed this project and I look forward to sharing what I will be doing in 2017.


Okay if you’ve been following this for any length of time, you know I love to draw creatures and I really feel led to help people to find and use their creativity. As part of this I have begun creating a line of adult coloring books and I just released a new one today. I take my creatures and put them into Kaleidoscopic patterns. It’s a lot of fun to do and yields results even I did not expect. What jamming is for musicians is what doing these books is for me, unbridled creativity and self expression. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed making it. Click the cover to get yours.

One of the things that has brought me a lot of joy lately is illustrating adult coloring books. I became enamored with the mandala style, but my images have nothing to do with anything but creating multifaceted fun images to color. For that reason, I call mine Kaleidoscopics. One of the things I love about this style is it’s quite mysterious. While I may have some idea what the final piece will look like, I never know until I assemble the final piece. The reason is simple, I only ever draw an eighth of the image, then mirror it over and over again. the same basic thing that happens in a kaleidoscope, hence the title I love to see the final image. I design these to be highly detailed, challenging and fun. The book is available now through Amazon.com and at many of my speaking appearances.
I hope you like it.
