Every piece of art I create starts with a conceptual sketch and this is the original conceptual sketch I drew for my "Jazz Catz” piece. This sketch is one-of-a-kind and really demonstrates the thought process behind the finished work. While I was working for Walt Disney Feature Animation I drew on animation paper with a red pencil. I fell in love with how the pencil feels on animation paper so it’s still part of my process to this day.
This original sketch is drawn on 13" x 16" animation paper and does not come matted. It will ship rolled in a tube.
I’m madly in love with your style of art. I like to draw and paint myself, but mostly my love for your work is about the Mood and Imagined World it represents. I especially like the pieces that bring back the 1950s with indoor and outdoor scenes with people or cats. Your color choices are exquisite!
I'm a big fan of Tiki/Mid-Century art and yours has the particular "classic" look that I most appreciate. I also should mention that I'm a fan of the bowling style shirts, and the embroidered artwork rather than the usual printed was like icing on the cake.
Your work is brilliant! It reminds me of my childhood and a much simpler time. Those Atomic Siamese cats are just the CATS MEOW!! Can't get enough of them and surprisingly, I really like the simple ones with just the cat sitting on the egg chair. They just beautifully represent the iconic 60's era. I really enjoy the live video sessions that you have as it is nice to be able to connect with the artist and learn about the inspiration for particular pieces. Looking forward to your next one. Cheers!
I have been looking at your artwork on Instagram for a while! I love the whimsical nature of it, the nostalgic feeling of the cartoons, and the MCM themes throughout. I try to make my home a unique and happy place for myself, my husband, and my cats, and I think your artwork will be a nice addition. The couple in "Love Seat" also reminds me of my husband and I, so it was the perfect choice! Thank you for sharing your work with the world!
