Excited to share the second batch of drawings from this year’s Inktober daily prompts. A little behind, but made it farther than last year. Couple drawings where I doubled up two days into one. More lazy than creative, honestly. There is a single “mash-up” time lapse video with most of the drawings from the past two weeks. Enjoy!

“Last year I participated for a few days before sputtering out.” – André, October 2020 Ten days later, I sputtered out. It’s Inktober season again (or as autocorrect insists, “ink toner” season), which means it’s time for my annual overpromise to create a drawing every day for the month of October. (Remember when I drew every day in 2018? I … Read More

Cornhole Boards 2.0

I’m excited to finally share some photos of my second round of hand-built, hand-painted cornhole boards. I made 12 more boards last winter (round one was 8 boards)—now I’m rolling them out for sale this summer. If you know someone who’s in the market, pass this along!

Third in a series of three! The First National Bank Sign that sits atop the building of the same name in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. I have to confess I did not know there were in fact three of them, all facing different sides of the city. This completes a series of pen & ink drawings of iconic Twin Cities … Read More

I prepared a short time-lapse video of my latest drawing; however, the best bit did not get captured–the edge of the bottle cap. This is the second in a series of iconic Minneapolis-Saint Paul neon signs (the first was the “Gold Medal Flour” sign that overlooks the Mississippi River). Third to come!

“Rebound Painting” makes it sound like something it isn’t… it’s just my first proper painting in a (very) long time. This is a view you may recognize if you’ve been to Jay Cooke State Park, just shy of Duluth if you’re coming from the Twin Cities. Have a look at my last “What’s New” post and see how the final … Read More

Trust the Process

It’s tempting to cut the paper and jump right into the big painting. After all, that’s where the magic happens in the end, that’s what you’re working towards and what everyone is going to see. But it turns out there are a lot of important steps that have to come before the real deal. I have learned about workup techniques … Read More

Two In, Two On

As usual, my plan to post regular progress updates on my summer project devolved into one big summary post at the end. At least I’m consistent. This summer, I finally executed on an idea that was sparked multiple years ago by a friend who commissioned me to paint scenes on a pair of corn hole boards (or bean bag toss … Read More
