client work

Client: Hi, I need some help with my Mac. Every time I turn it on, it shows a question mark.

Me: That sounds like your computer doesn’t recognize a boot drive on your device. How long ago did this happen?

Client: Oh, I just bought this computer from my friend. Great deal! Less than $500. She also bought me a new hard drive for me. So nice of her!

Me: Ok, so when she installed the new drive, did she restore the data from the previous drive to the new one?

Client: I don’t know why she would do that. Also, I put in the drive myself. It should work!

Me: So you put in a new hard drive, and expected it to just work?

Client:  But it’s a Mac! It should just work, right?

Of the hundreds of Polaroids I shot at Sundance this is definitely my favorite. I wasn’t even supposed to photograph Kristen this year and at the end of the day I walked into my studio to start packing up and there she was looking at the wall of polaroids. “These are cool”. “Thanks, I’m mike. Can I shoot one of you?” “Sure”. I shot two frames and then she disapeared out the backdoor into an SUV. 

Simple study of Margaery Tyrell, done over stream yesterday. The recording is here if you missed it.

Please consider following my Twitch channel if you’d like to catch the next painting session! I walk viewers through my process and answer art questions live over the cam, it’s a good time.


Over the past few weeks I have had the privilege of working on a project for the Adobe Creative Cloud. My assignment was to create header art for tutorials surrounding Edge Reflow, Dream Weaver, Speed Grade, and Audition. The big challenge was to make images that did not literally represent the learning content but instead took on a looser interpretation of its subjects. I am pretty excited with how these came out, with how friendly the Adobe team has been, and to have gotten to work alongside some of my favorite artists and dear friends. Thank you AD Kendall Plant, the Adobe Cloud Team, and Erica Larson (my babe)!


So a while ago people were talking about ‘liveaction tv show, actors!au’ and i love imagining blooper reels for animated things, so my twin sister and I came up with this silly thing. Now seemed an appropriate time to share with the recent liveaction movie announcement. 

Marinette’s actor would be a total jokester

Kapow! Third color study done.

Am I learning yet? (I’m an old fart, go easy on me! Or don’t, I’ve had plenty of time to improve.)

Time to reward myself with hot cider for managing to finish a single task today? Sure, why not?
