A Tree Called Life by SpaceTurtleStudios
A Tree Called Life

Wedding present for my friends. The text reads:

“here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the secret that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)

From ‘i carry your heart’ by e.e. cummings

Watercolor & colored pencil, ~11 x 17″
Bedazzling Butterflies by SpaceTurtleStudios
Bedazzling Butterflies

Painting for this year’s annual “Naturally Inspired Paint-Out” at the Indianapolis Zoo. The weather was fairly terrible, so I camped out in the greenhouse and painted some butterflies.

Colored pencil & acrylic on paper, 11x14"

I'm an artist and illustrator based in Indianapolis. I primarily work as a children's book illustrator and am currently lead artist for the independent sci-fi game Weirspace ( which will be launching later this year.
Hello again everyone. As fall ends and we head into winter, I thought I'd give a brief update about what I've been working on lately.

I attended Awesome Con Indy at the beginning of October. Unfortunately it was... much less awesome than advertised. Attendance was very low and the weather was pretty cold and miserable. Sales were also very slow. It was definitely disappointing, but Indianapolis hosted a lot of new events this year and I suppose not all of them could be successful.

October was extremely busy as I was juggling several part-time day jobs and I was kept working for several weeks straight with few real breaks. In the end, I quit two of the jobs and now am back to working one day job and spending the rest of the time doing freelance illustration.

Speaking of which: I am working on several projects right now. All of them are very exciting, and... unfortunately all of them are also very secret. I promise I will tell you all about them as soon as I am able.

I am not often on dA anymore, although I will continue posting finished pieces when I can-- I have no plans to abandon this gallery. But if you are looking for more frequent news about my art, you can follow me on these other websites:
