I love my; Blazers, Portland, cartooning, and very busy art. It was a lot of fun going to the game and seeing people enjoy this poster first hand. Blazers and toons? I’m there!
I designed these pins for Nike's Air Max Day. These pins were featured in select cities. Chicago got the Chicago Dog. The taco for L.A. The pigeon, pizza rat, and the Air with the apple all for the Big Apple. The trolly *ding ding* for San Fran. These were such fun.
Portland Gear and I teamed up for some Rose City-themed custom toons. We collaborated on; a mileage post sign (featured on the beach towel), a Portland coat of arms, and a toon that featured the bridges of Portland.
I partnered with Genentech to create this mural to chart their journey to Class A certification. This was an interactive mural that had magnetic vehicles that charted progress. The paths go from the Oregon Coast up to Mt. Hood. This mural was 10 feet wide by 5 feet high. It was fun to hide Oregon history throughout this mural. You could get lost in it. My favorite element is Clyde Drexler dunking a donut over downtown PDX.
Sketchy People! I draw people of Portland (and beyond) exactly how I see them. I have my sketchbook and pens at the ready to get some of the citizens that do indeed, Keep Portland Weird! You could be next!

Gulls is a comic I have been drawing since 2007. It follows Marty Gull and his dreams of becoming a flock-star. His band never seems to take flight but they’ll take any gig they can, even if there’s no one there. Join the flock at: gullscomic.com

Minus Tide is a single panel gag cartoon. This comic washes up jokes from the flotsam and jetsam. Fish working in an office, tough sharks, desert islands - Minus Tide will keep ya on yer toes...and will make sure they get sand in between them.

Toons at Work
I've been lucky enough to express my toon style during work hours. Here’s some nine to five doodles.
Animated Music Videos
Gulls Comic has a musical storyline featuring a trio of Gulls and their band, Flawker Rawker. In real life, I've put together a three-piece band to give the band within the comic an actual sound. That results in music videos. Squawk!
Flawker Rawker - Doot da Doot
The first single. Doot Da Doot is about Pigeons.
Flawker Rawker - Bumpkin Gull
The second single. Bumpkin Gull is about a redneck gull.
Flawker Rawker - Garbage Day
The 3rd single. Garbage Day is about a gull's favorite day of the week.
Toons n' Tunes
If a gull were to play guitar...it'd be a Flying V of course. With an official Gulls Comic axe, I took my goofy gull songs, got a band together, and we’ve recorded two albums. Garbage Day was released on yellow vinyl and Flockstar on purple. I used my production background to create the decal die-line (bottom image) to adorn the guitar.
