This is a campaign I started on the day after the presidential election. It consists of a daily illustration featuring a inspirational quote and image created using 3 words from a random list generator. I mail out my original watercolor illustrations to people who sign up via email. Then postcard sets are made available for purchase in my online shop.
If you would like to receive an original "Share the Love" work, please email your mailing address to email@example.com and put "Share the Love" in the subject line.
In such times of fear and uncertainty, this is my small way of reminding people how important it is to stay positive and letting them know that there are still folks out there who care about, and will continue to fight for, those who need our support.
Since its inception after the 2016 election, the “Share the Love” program has grown tremendously! What started as simple mailings of original watercolor illustrations with positive messages (see our “Share the Love” page) turned into a mailing list of over 100 folks who receive a little joy in their mailbox 4 times a year.
So many of those people have requested that friends and family members be added to the list that I have worked diligently to create the “Pay it Forward” program so we can keep growing and sharing the love in HUGE numbers!
If you are interested in purchasing a 1-year subscription of mailings for friends or family members, please head over to our “SHOP” page, or just click here to be redirected. PAY IT FORWARD
Our goal is to reach 1,000 people by 2020! We’d love for you to come along for the journey :)

You’ve all seen them. Giant mugs of coffee in hand. Shuffling down the sidewalk in their old t-shirts and boxer shorts. Eyes barely open. No - not zombies… It’s those loving souls who are out walking their fur kids (dogs/cats) at 6am every morning.
I wanted to make an illustrated map of my neighborhood but also thought it would be great to pay tribute to these sleepy souls and their daily dedication!
A deck I’ve recently designed as an item to be donated to the silent auction at this year’s Southern Fried Gaming Expo. All proceeds for the event are to benefit Project Pinball which puts pinball machines in children’s hospitals. I am looking forward to having a booth at the event in 2019 with lots of game-themed artwork!
This project consists of a full range of products based on these characters. Fritz, a child that just never seemed to fit in, decided to go to his lab and create a group of best friends. From those experiments came Carl, Penny and Albert.
The friends can be found here in their board game, riddle cards, advent calendar and more!

I created this Advent Calendar in November of 2015, shortly after my dog Oliver's passing. I hand made 20 of them and gave one to each of the staff members at his vet clinic who had helped us so much in his final months.
In 2016, I plan on promoting a custom version of the calendar to local pet rescues as something they can give to those who provide forever homes to pets in need during the holiday season.
