Okay one more deer thing, maybe I really like deers.
“Between the wish and the thing the world lies waiting.” — a line from All the Pretty Horses, a novel by Cormac McCarthy (1993)
This illustration is an old throwback inspired by a @casadecalexico lyric. (Btw, check out the photography of Brandise @antimodel , on an international tour with them now. Surreal & gorgeous, like she does.) Anyway, these sleepy bird-esques are one of the first posted drawings that I truly loved — I still remember the delight I felt when I’d finished it. This came to mind for me recently as I looked through my sketchbooks for potential business card art. It just fit so perfectly: the front-of-card layout (the back is contact info with a grid of misc. work), the reason I suddenly need a card, and all the generally delightful things happening. And it fits me, too — from back then all the way to right now. I am bird-esque... and also sleepy.
If you’ve read this far (haha), and you’re in Colorado, stay tuned for an event post — Twin Ninja Sake Saison (along with my commissioned beer can illustration) is hitting local shelves soon, and there’s an open launch party on Friday. Would love to say hello.

DAY 9/100 is another BABY HEAd. I'm really satisfied with the skin tones in this one.
DAY 7/10- BABY HEAD. I'm not very good with babies. I've held one or two in my life and it was nerve wracking
VOM 355/365 — 10 more days!
