Seasons of change.

Last week our little house on 221st street sold. While on a bike ride soon after, it hit me how many big seasons have happened these last few years! Pets come and gone, two kids, a pandemic, two book deals, and many more ups and downs. Whoa. I had so much fun staying up lateContinue reading “Seasons of change.”

Popsicles.

Last week the heat was surprisingly tenacious here in BC. My kids and I gathered on a beach towel in our backyard after they had jumped in their kiddie pool for the 76th time. I brought out popsicles for them and smiled as they dripped gleefully all over themselves, reminded that even though 2020 hasContinue reading “Popsicles.”

Blippi’d

My son Hudson is OBSESSED with Blippi. Can all the Mamas & Papas raise your hand if you have a toddler who is requesting to watch Blippi AD NAUSEAM?! (Send wine and headphones.) My only appropriate response to this is to draw him in his glory wearing Blippi’s garb. Even when he asks for hisContinue reading “Blippi’d”

Inktober 2018

It took me into November – BUT I DID THEM ALL YOU GUYS! With two kids and lotsa work, this was a flippin’ feat. All sketches done on a Moleskine sketchbook, using a mix of pentel brush pen, pigma liners, colerase pencils, pencil crayons and markers.

My story for Dark Glass Theatre’s “Trespass”

Instructions for a life: Pay attention.  Be astonished.  Tell someone.  I grew up in a large Pentecostal church, baptized days after being born. God and Jesus were always a huge part of my life. My youth was full of Christian conventions, church summer camps and Friday night youth groups. I always believed the church wasContinue reading “My story for Dark Glass Theatre’s “Trespass””

Robson-inspired sketches

Since I have been home taking care of Robson the last few months, AND trying to keep up with my full-time gig – doing any additional sketching seems like a pipe dream! BUT… once in a while, I am able to carve out a precious hour or two to do some art for myself. HereContinue reading “Robson-inspired sketches”

Another letter to Baby Chomiak: She will never say “I love you, Daddy”.

Hello my little one…. it’s me. [We will teach you about Adele when you grow up a bit!] I can’t even believe you are already 28 weeks along, and growing so strong inside of Mama’s belly. Wow, you are doing so great little bean! First let me thank you for a precious gift you haveContinue reading “Another letter to Baby Chomiak: She will never say “I love you, Daddy”.”

A letter to Baby Chomiak

My dear sweet little bean, You don’t know it yet, but you are so entirely loved. These past few weeks, the word miracle has taken shape inside of your Mama, and I have had the honor of having a front row seat to the unfolding of it all. Let me tell you a little bitContinue reading “A letter to Baby Chomiak”

I’m gonna be a Mom. :D

We announced our big news on the social medias today, and I did this little illustration for the occasion. Our hearts are dancing, and we breathe in these moments of joy after a long journey.  😀 😀  

A Kids Book – Work in Progress

For quite a while now I have been working on illustrating a kids book with a friend of mine who has written one, and figured out all the publishing details. My life and work at the studio has kept me very busy and has made this project go very slowly…. but it is getting thereContinue reading “A Kids Book – Work in Progress”
