A Small Story

I made this for my 

daughter’s first 


Four safari animals, 

just hanging out 

and thinking 

that they’re 




that they’re hiding 

behind each other, 


that they look like 

one enormous safari creature

that no carnivore would 

dare mess with. 

Safari (9x12 print)

  • • Ink drawing & digital color, printed with archival inks on heavyweight watercolor paper

    • Size ~9 1/2"x 13", with lots of room for trimming for mat and/or frame

    • Inks are water soluable, so keep away from moisture (including rain, sippy cups, and salivating pets)


    I work almost exclusively in my sketchbooks, in pencil or pen or crow's quill, then scan in the drawing and apply color digitally (color involves lots of trial and error). I like to work in watercolor vs. digital watercolor, but it's painstaking and somewhat stressful, so I need to keep working at it...
