Today the Team Coco crew let me know that my artwork is now on Conan O’Brien’s website. I put together this mini collage the other day as part of my effort to start up a series of famous faces. I’d like to sharpen my illustration skills with capturing the likeness of well-known figures.
And I thought I’d share my favorite Conan quote with you:”Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.”

A few days ago I mentioned that my brother (an animator in NYC) and I worked on a 3d collage character study (Birdy). Recently I collaged a background for Birdy, and worked on some bark texture and a few collaged leaves. Above you can see what Birdy looks like in his new environment.
Above is another image of Birdy, although this time a filter has been applied to the image.Now all we need to do is animate the little guy and have him say a few lines.
The other week I got my copy of Papirmasse in the mail, which is a publication based in Canada that features prints of artwork alongside writing. I was thrilled to be part of the September postcard edition, and was happy to get ten postcard-sized prints of artwork in the mail. Just look at them all! Looks like I have quite a few more prints to add to my bulletin board.
On each postcard, there’s a print of a work of art on one side (above is a print of my “Snorkeling” collage).
And on the other side is a short piece of writing.
