Though an architectural illustrator specializing in formal hand rendered architectural illustrations by profession, sketching and drawing is still the true root of all visual creative development. I have found myself filling spare time in a lawn chair with a sketchbook in my lap recording life around me in ink. Whether that be a blood pressure monitor at the doctors office, a garbage can at the end of the driveway, a baseball dug out, or a request from my children, if I'm looking at it and it's the most interesting thing around, I soon find myself with pen or pencil in hand putting it in the book.
Though this page is dedicated to these quick urban sketches, you can find my formal work at
You can also see other work at where some of my work is offered for sale as greeting cards.
