Reposting older sketches..
..I’ve always been in love with fairies..
Hanging out, drawing friends at bars..
..Old man I photographed in LA..
The year 2015 had lessons to learn – and 2016 is about getting back on track.
I’m looking forward to the future with open eyes and an open heart . I’ve moved into a new home, with new resolutions, ready to take on anything! Every day is another opportunity to push yourself – to become a better you.
The past month I’ve had some time to make more sketches… and started a book club with 3 girlfriends. All from the Valley, we love to read and started the club off with Brooklyn by Colm Toibin. I just finished I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou and thought it’d be cool to draw just her eyes because she was a woman with so much soul..
I drew Steve Harvey after his hilarious fail on National television. His face is too good not to draw!
Amy Winehouse sketch
Malala is still a work in progress….
This sketch is part of a series I’m creating…
I’ll keep posting new work since one of my resolutions is to keep this blog updated with new work, artists who inspire me, trips I take, and Beauty/Fashion ideas I can’t help but share. Thanks for checking out my blog and come back tomorrow for Makeup Monday!

Also, it’s my birthday month! I’m embracing 29 with a kick-ass attitude.
The year of PAU.
My friend Jonathan Latt wrote his first book The Geek, and asked me to paint the cover for it! He directed me to make a hand-drawn map of the World, with Dungeons/Dragons dice thrown across it, and the protagonist’s favorite killing knife set in a bird’s eye view.
He had me as a guest on his new podcast called Stuff & Stuff – an hour conversation with a person of his choice to talk about “stuff”.

Here’s a small photoshoot Stephanie Lynn and I did this past summer for DRONES Clothing — They have comfy fun new tanks and tees on their site – Check it out!
DRONES was created by the talented, super awesome homie Bryden Lando – raised in California and Hawaii – has a rad eye for what looks cool and feels great.
My last weekend in Chile was one of the best trips ever. Longtime friends from High School took me to a place called Los Molles – about 45 minutes North of my favorite beach Maitencillo. We got a house right at the beach with an ocean view for a fraction what you’d pay in California. No wifi, no TV – Just friends, alcohol, food, and music. Nothing to do but hang out with each other, talk , dance, and cook. We shut off the world and enjoyed being in a beautiful place with good people…something everyone should do once in awhile!
