Brandon Werth! Photographer and Adventurer!!!

Brandon had just recently done my wedding photos and they were completely amazing!!!  Not only did he capture the magic and beauty of our special day in a way that can't be recreated by anyone else because  the pictures emanate his own unique vision, but because he has a personality that could turn any "smile for the camera moment" into a way for you to just feel happy you're sharing yourself with someone great.  I know that may sound weird, but I'm prone to fake smiling for portraits, and he always made me smile.

So this was my way of thanking him for all his hard work and spirit that he puts forth for all his clients.
Check his work out at

Also I illustrated his family Christmas Card because his family is AWESOME!!!

Bat Vision!

Again I want to apologizes for my infrequent posts.  I confess I have been working on things and forget to add them.  I was recently at Fallcon and had a blast and met some great comic artists! So here's some pics from the event and my doodles I did in my sketchbook before I spilt water all over my table... yep, I did...

Hwa Rang Do Martial Arts Commission

This is an illustration I did for the new place I'm working for.  I'm an After School Program Coordinator for the Teaching Knights of Tomorrow.  Aside from coming up with cool art projects every day I was asked to design a logo and created this.

Sketchbook from Big Horns

I was recently out back packing with my dad and brothers through the Big Horn Mountains.  I sorta injured my ACL ligament in my right knee so I ended up having a little time to sketch. At least that's one positive way to look at it!

Super Summer

So this summer I worked as an Art Instructor at the University Club.  I got to come up with art projects for almost everyday! The kids were super cool and really creative, these are a couple of my favorite projects we did.

This was a giant pyramid we constructed that was 6' tall by 9' square base!  I simply told the kids what the goal was and that it was up to them to work together to construct it.  So I had little influence to how they put it together.

Here I had the kids create a comic without the use of words.  The story could only be told through gestures, expressions, and view points.   This is one of my first kid projects and it's so fun to see how kids try to translate stories with only pictures.  Plus this really introduces them to building a visual vocabulary, so that they can us art and images as another means for communication...And comics are Cool!

Super Vegetables!  Kids created a vegetable out of clay then did a drawing of their veg. and described the health benefits if you ate it!  This project has the best combo of drawing, sculpture, and creative writing!

 More Egypt projects, this one they wrote their own secret message using hieroglyphics.

 Kids illustrated a song on watercolor paper cutting out layers and putting them together to finish their composition around the words.

Learning about weather, kids did an illustrated diagram of how precipitation works.

Ship in the bottle: with blue prints of their ship.

U Club mascot designs by cutting out Asymmetric designs.

Oooooh!  These planets turned out Awesome!!!

Natural Art Project:  I climbed down Summit hill with a machete and collected vines branches and leaves for the kids to create a sculpture together. It started out as sort of a "Lord of the Flies"-esque altar, and pretty much turned into a sweet fort.

Fort #2

Color Theory Hands: Primary colors creating secondary.

Another one of my favorites! Creating Space Themed Board Games.

Alien Puppets!

Life on Planet X:  A group project where a kid starts with an accordion folded piece of paper and starts drawing a landscape with an alien on it leading up to the next side.  Then they pass it to the next kid without them seeing the other side so that when the pages are all drawn on it creates a crazy picture.  Then the first kid gets to write what life lives on this planet and what its like there.  Oh yeah! drawing, group work, and creative writing all in one!
