Current Conservation Magazine Cover

This one I'm quite proud of. I did this illustration when I was at Portfolio Center in 1993. Today I got my copy of the latest issue of Conversation Magazine and it's on the cover! I'm really glad to be apart of such a worthy cause. I'm in good company with past covers art as well. Several very well known illustrators have graced the cover and now me. Thanks to Society for Conservation Biology. Also, this has been on another magazine cover and won a Best Cover award back in 1995. An oldie but goodie. Check out some other past magazine covers here.

4th of July Fun

Had some fun on the 4th with the family doing art through a straw.

We all did a few and then went to see the real fireworks.

This is one I did I thought was pretty cool.

I thought I would try it against the dark sky in Photoshop. I like this one better, but the original in person can't be beat.
