My brand new website and home, http://www.freckleshop.com has just launched!
This is my new REVAMPED, smartphone-friendly, easy to navigate portfolio site which includes personal work, animation and paintings as well as past illustration assignments and game art.
I am planning to phase out http://www.happypix.com over the next few years…but for now, check out my new home!

I’m very proud of my latest custom portrait. It features an amphibian riding couple and their dogs in period clothing. This one is set in the backdrop of the wondrous thermal features of Yellowstone National Park!

Woo hoo! I just completed another custom portrait for some friends who wanted their family to be represented as Totem poles in the Alaskan Wilderness.
I’ve been commissioned to create a series of illustrations for an installation at the Valdez Museum in Alaska celebrating the Alaskan bush pilots of the 1930s called “Get Ready to Soar!”. This is great fun for me as I LOVE researching and drawing airplanes. Here is a sample of the “teaser” poster I designed which advertises the exhibit.
Before my brain explodes trying to get a handle on how to work with all this technology that keeps distracting me, I thought I’d put in a plug for my fabulously neglected Etsy shop. I’ve had it for 3 years now, but only recently have actually tried to promote it. (No wonder I haven’t sold anything…doh!)
The main items for sale right now are individual alphabet letters. I created the original painting series way back in art school, scanned them, cleaned them up and repainted them using “digital” brushes.
They are each 8×8″, printed on beautiful archival Velvet Fine Art paper, which has the look and feel of a cold-press watercolor paper. Each print is hand-signed by me and offered for sale at the bargain-basement price of $18/each or 4 prints for $60 (not including shipping).
The prints are bold, whimsical and vibrant and I’ve been trying to market them as a “great addition to your kids’ bedroom”.
Well…we’ll see what happens…..
Stay tuned for upcoming children’s growth charts…but only if I can figure out how to correctly load roll paper into my funky printer.
