Another finished piece for my “birds of prey eating stuff” series. This is an immature Northern Goshawk with, you know…. lunch.
I’ve had my head burried in a pile of birds of prey for a larger project I’m working on with some great people in Chicago. For now enjoy this Red-Tailed Hawk and his adorable lunch.
A Black Bullhead Catfish. Another large format ink drawing from a series of native Louisiana wildlife. Side note- have you guys every heard of “noodling?” You catch one of these monsters with your bare hands by sticking your arm into its nest and messing with it until it tries to swallow you, then you wrestle it out by it’s own guts.
Recently I had the joy of drawing this American Splendor-themed ‘Save The Date’ announcement for my twin sister Harmony and her awesome (now) husband Michael. If you couldn’t guess, they are both huge comic book nerds.

Here are a bunch of crows that our aforementioned crow-hunting owl took down. I had a lot of fun with this one, trying to show the iridescence of their feathers without going too “Lisa Frank” was an enjoyable challenge. Illustration for Fur-Fish-Game Magazine.

Did you know that you can train Great-Horned Owls to HUNT CROWS?? And then return to you, and live with you as your awesome, terrifying pet?
This is Brutus, and he does just that. Illustration for Fur-Fish-Game Magazine.
From a recent series of musicians from New Orleans, we bring you King Louis. My grandma saw him perform live back in the day, and said he went through at least 50 crisp, white handkercheifs.
