Manifest Hope Gallery show in Denver

I'll be showing two pieces at the Manifest Hope Gallery in Denver next week. It's all part of something called the Democratic National Convention, which I'm told is a party or something.

You've seen this one below, but it always felt a little rushed to me (it was done on a very tight deadline), so I put in a few more hours on it for the show.

One of the key terms for the Obama campaign is change, so I came up with this to riff on that. It's gouache and my new favorite tool, ballpoint pen.

Anchorage Press 'Haiku You 2008' cover

Here's a cover for the Anchorage Press 'Haiku You' Haiku competion. I kind of just wanted to see a Japanese dragon in the Tlingit style, and the rest followed from there. There are also spot illos that go with some of the winning haiku poems. I'll post those in a bit.
