On exhibition through the end of June at Powell's City of Books in downtown Portland Oregon.

In late January I was asked to do an art show at a book store. I had done a few there before but it wasn't until this show that I realized Powells printed books.
Why not make a coloring book to go along with a show?
The drawings and sculptures on display are inspired by the drawings in the book I made. The drawings in the book are inspired by space, mostly industrial space, exteriors of industrial space to be precise.
Places where things are manufactured have always been interesting to me. They are space that is created for a function. form follows, but yet it's still pleasing to the eye. I find that humorous, beautiful, and what you see on display is some form of translation.
