This project was for the Anchorage Waterway's Council and was up on a number of municipal buses in October.  (I though I'd already posted it up, but I guess I forgot).

Life as Comics

I've got a new post up at my newly repurposed Illustration Alaska Blog about a set of classes I'm giving at three different Anchorage Library branches.  Check it out there or here's the flyer.

The Paper Posts

I tried to set the bar very high for this year's Christmas card, so I went with a paper-craft version of the family with my wife doing a diorama to go with them.  I won't go into all the details and I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, but it was a lot, lot of work and tedious folding, but everything turned out better than I imagined.  

If you want to take a stab, and why wouldn't you, I've included some color-your-own templates at the bottom if you want to have your own Post adventures.   

Here are the Post templates:

One of the other things I've been up to was Enzina Marrari's last curated show at Middleway Cafe, which was up from October through November.  I enjoyed these pieces a lot, especially with the Halloween theme, and made a decision to do everything, apart from the backgrounds, in Illustrator.  They were also printed on canvas, which made them really pop. Look for three of the four prints on Esty in the near future.  


If you have a moment in February, come check out the HOME show for the United Way's Walk for Warmth and organized by the Nerland Agency.  I haven't seen my actual artwork yet because it's in the process of being silk-screened for the event.  I haven't had anything of mine silk-screened before, apart from a few t-shirts, so I'm really excited to see how it turned out. 

HOME Poster Show

Snow City Café
February 3 – March 1, 2012
Opening: First Friday, February 3

"Our HOME poster show celebrates local artists and will raise funds for United Way’s Walk for Warmth. We created this event to honor local talent and celebrate the camaraderie in the art community.

HOME is a poster show inspired by how we individually define such a place or feeling. Each of us has in some way created a unique environment by the people, places or things that represent to us a sacred physical space or emotional refuge.

HOME features a collection of local artists’ limited handcrafted silkscreen prints. All proceeds will go to United Way’s Walk for Warmth, helping at-risk families stay housed and warm during the harsh winter months in Anchorage.

Admission is free and posters are affordable."

I've been especially remiss in posting up my work lately, mostly because I've been going from project to project.  I'v got a moments break, so here's a bit of what's been on my drawing board.  The first is for Liz Meredith's blog for her forthcoming book "Summon the Rain".  She wanted a picture of her as a young girl, doing her approximation of a rain dance.   

The other recent commission was for my friend Jessica Bowman's goddaughter based on a few pictures and a poem Jessica composed for her.

Sketches pt 1

 I'm developing a new series for an art show this summer.  I put out the all-call on Facebook and Twitter last week and I got a huge response, but I could still use more if you're willing to share.  Just send them to yoursquarelife at

I went to the Ak Arts conference this week, so I had some time during the inspirational talks to jot down some sketches.  I did find out my new Moleskin notebook is impervious to ink, so pardon the rampant smudging. I'll be posting up a few more sketches over the week.
