Opal and the Floating Cakes

Opal and Tiny Cow walk into the bakery one morning to find all the pastries levitating above their heads. This is highly unusual, if you didn’t know.




A mystery in three parts! Dilemma, conflict, and resolution.

The fun: Creating a goofy mystery, experimenting with textures and light to convey distinct moods.

The challenge: isolating it down into just three images.

The result: I really want to have a tea party with aliens.

I look forward to making more stories with Opal and Tiny cow. I just love this duo!

New Photoshop Brushes!

I’ve never been a huge fan of drawing digitally, but then I downloaded a few of Kyle T. Webster’s Photoshop brushes and I’m addicted!  (Okay, that sounded sponsored, but I promise I’m not being paid to say this.)  They feel natural enough that I’m comfortable drawing directly into the computer (as opposed to my usual method of scanning a physical drawing and coloring/altering it digitally).

Here are some drawings I’ve created so far:


The following drawings were created for the Union Weekly at CSULB:


Here’s where to get these brushes for yourself!
