Hugo and Hiccup – A story from the love of a father
Boy dog portrait illustration
Resurrected in a memory
Immortalized in an image
The treasures of being human
Through pleasure and pain
Good parents remain
A pillar of heaven
I am full of wonder considering someone’s journey and the privilege of portraying their posterity.
Whether happy or sad it’s a memory that can be redeemed through acts of kindness.

The Artist’s Journey
Story to come.
I am conscious God has given us everything to enjoy.
The illustration technique
It’s always a challenge to illustrate and control pencil leads from white paper to the darkest of darks *(Chiaroscuro) and capture the essence of a subject’s skin tones, torso shape, and personality.
I combine HB, 4b, and 6b clutch pencil leads with cross-hatching, finger rubbing, and special detail rubbers.
The art papers I use are archival, machine-made with 100% chlorine and acid-free cotton to guarantee long conservation and inalterability over time.
The high quality and wide range of these papers satisfy the demands of all professional artists and the most demanding amateurs. Ideal for watercolor, gouache, gouache, acrylic, ink, charcoal, graphite, and drawing
* Chiaroscuro (Italian for light-dark) in the art uses strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition.
