I finally figured out what I wanted to do for backgrounds and I’ve been working on finishing these cute cyptid watercolor paintings and getting them online. First up is the Yeti. He’s probably my favorite of the bunch. I used hand drawn mountains in the background because I want each of the backgrounds to be Read More
I love Halloween and I especially love ghost stories so I had to do a ghost design for the holiday. I ended up doing a monochrome purple painting. I’m happy the design looks great on a bunch of stuff! I’ve got more Halloween designs ready to paint and clean up too.
Here’s the next cryptid in my Cute Cryptid series. Say “hi” to the Yeti! He’s mostly done at this point. Just needs some pen work to really complete the picture. This painting was done in watercolor using only three colors.
I’m working on a series of cute cryptid paintings. I’ve always loved scary stories and cryptids are usually pretty great at being scary. But since I like drawing cute things the most, I decided to make them cute obviously. I want to make them into stickers, but that might change later. For now, here are Read More

Here’s some polar bears trying to keep warm. Illustrated in watercolor and pen. The winter here in Minnesota has been unusually mild so far. We’ve only had a handful of days get down to what I’d call “normal” for us. That’d be around the single digits, down to about -10F. We’ve had so many Read More
A new watercolor painting today. A bear with a sweet tooth. Lucky for him, the bees don’t seem upset.
This is another result of watching too many nature documentaries. Even some of the nature docs like to call them “the unicorns of the sea.” They are really fascinating creatures though so I can see why so many people love them. I personally find myself loving all the arctic sea creatures. It’s amazing what Read More
I love drawing cute things! I watch a ton of nature documentaries too so I feel like it’s only natural that I keep painting cute animal pictures. This is a baby harp seal which you’ve probably seen pictures of before. So cute! I couldn’t resist painting that happy face. It’s very much winter in Read More
