Baby Pod Sketch

Baby Pod Sketch art
Well, it’s been a bit longer than I like to go without posting…so I decided to post one of my sketches. It illustrates the Illustration Friday topic “BABY” from a couple weeks back. The baby in utero is visible to the outside world through a window, similar to a submarine window, or a space bubble on an astronaut’s head. Keeping with the space theme, baby and mother stand outside a baby pod–an incubator of sorts that is a cute abode and a birthing station that doubles as a rocket. This image was inspired by the birth of beautiful baby Olive Radford!

Coming up next: I have a few projects in the works currently…a couple magazine illustrations, and a painting that will be the start of a new series I’m working on that will feature abstracted far away locations.

Portland, Oregon!

Had a fantastic time up in the Pacific Northwest, enjoying Portland city life, luxurious digs, flavorful meals, shopping, and so many gardens.

Portland is a foodie paradise. Dinner at Red Star Tavern started with cooked oysters stuffed in their shells with crab and spinach, this aged Prime Rib Filet with Blue Cheese sauce and home-made onion rings, completed by champagne-watermelon gelato with waffle cones and milanos.
