The MPDD program has been taking up all of my free time and I have been missing having a creative outlet. I’ve decided to take more cell phone photos. It is a simple, quick way to keep in touch with the artistic side AND practice my composition. A cell phone photo is also a reminder to stop and enjoy the process instead of rushing to the result. I pass many interesting sites on my commute, why not take the time to document a few? I am not going to be a purist and I’ll edit my photos as I see fit. Why not?
Made possible by my Mom’s inspiration (happy B-day mom <3) and my new functioning cell phone. Photos by Alexa Buter below.
Worked on Evie’s portrait over the weekend. More to come this week! Want to get it done before school starts. Babies are hard and always look like old men.

Meg Dullea, now Meg Stempel has been a dear friend of mine since the age of 4 or so. For her wedding I wanted to make a portrait of her and her husband Andrew. This is a super rough partial portrait I started before the wedding photos were released. Can’t wait to get started on the couple!
Submission for r/sketchdaily tall grass/blue grass post. I didn’t know how to start so I asked Felix to draw a scribble on the page and made a drawing based on it.
This does not look like the thermoform I was trying to render.
Been working on a portrait of Evie for my coworker Jenica. Here are a few progress pics. Probably halfway done.
So a weird thing happened to me the other day. I got a message via reddit from a member of the Licking County Ohio planning board. They somehow came across my dragster sketch I had started for my friend Josh and wanted to use it on a sign for their county. I said sure! Why not! I hope to encourage these strange internet encounters.
I use to doodle these circular messes. They were pretty fun. I should get back into it.
Rushed flier for Chicago Bike Buddies. Whoops! I forgot to export for RGB!
In one of my continuing studies classes we had an idea of an environment in a bus stop that would create heating. There would be these units hanging from the ceiling and when you interact with them they start to glow and heat up. It is meant to encourage stranger interaction as a way to keep warm at the bus stop.
Now all I can think of are two messed up blue balls. Anyway more work to be done.
