Standing on shoulders. That’s art. . This zipper donkey costume is something I sketched back in 2012. I saw it in a Juxt magazine. Maybe? Regardless, it was fun drawing him again. . Smoking is bad! . #draw

Windy Boulders 24”x14” . . Sorry about the crop. @instagram isn’t the ideal platform for wide landscape. . . This is my latest illustration. I live in Houston, TX and it’s hot, hot, hot! I guess I’m dreaming of deep water soloing. . . I hope everyone is having a great summer. . . #art#illustration
