A Rupture of Robots: Sketchbook Volume One 

I am SOOOOO SOOOO EXCITED to present my first sketchbook 'A Rupture of Robots'* - a hefty 178-page tome of wacky ROBOT-themed Ink & Marker Drawings, originating from a 'Sketch-A-Day' experiment I have been conducting on my Facebook Art Page for the last few months.

This project has been a labor of love and I am really delighted with how the book has turned out. Part art-book, part sketch-book, part-coloring book, this book is a great holiday gift for all ages: Adults will love the humor AND the humanity of the drawings, and kids will find it amusing, inspiring and fun to color! Plus, it's completely mom-approved!**

And for fun, here's a time-lapse video of me drawing one of the sketches in this book.

Happiness Is... A Cup of Coffee 
A Whimsical Art Book for Coffee Lovers 

This is my first full-color 'Art-Book', featuring 43 paintings from my whimsical 'coffee series'. Over the course of the last two years, most of the original paintings from this series have found new homes, making it no longer possible to enjoy them in context of each other. I therefore decided I needed to make this book to recreate the joy of looking at the entire series all at once.

This is a great gift for anyone who loves humor, art, and coffee. And for once, you can actually have a real 'coffee'-table book on your coffee table! :)
