Roswell, New Mexico


I drew this portrait back in the fall of 2017. Last January, Warner Brothers Entertainment approached me about using a print of it as a background-set-piece in the reboot of a TV series, Roswell, premiering on the CW Network tonight! This sci-fi drama (retitled Roswell, New Mexico) involves extraterrestrials hiding amongst the citizens of this storied New Mexico town. If you watch Roswell, this image (along with other alien-themed artwork) can be seen on the walls of the Crashdown Cafe, a recurring location on the show.

You can purchased a signed print of this piece here!

Yoda


Yoda is one of the most beloved and powerful Jedi Masters in the Star Wars universe. He lived to be 900 years old, but his wisdom lives on throughout many galaxies. No doubt, "the force is strong with this one." This piece was inspired by a series called World Tour - in which I use maps as inspiration for drawing people, animals, and Jedi masters.  Prints are available here!

Cate Blanchett


This amazing actress hails from a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. She's so talented, her portrayal of Bob Dylan (in the film,  I'm not There) seems to embody Bob Dylan even more that Bob Dylan can embody Bob Dylan. Her name is Cate Blanchett, and she's one of the great thespians of our time.
