free napkin with every order!


Blanco, Texas cafe. While filling my truck gas tank for $2.20 a gallon, I noticed this cafe. The shoe polish graphics on the windows have such a great sense of humor, I just had to sketch this place.

Wimberley Valley in the evening


After lots of traveling since August, it's good to be home for a while. This is a sketch from up on a ridge, very close to home.

fish fountain, State Fair of Texas


This fountain is in front of The Women's Museum at Fair Park in Dallas. Fair Park has one of the largest collections of Art Deco buildings in world. In my opinion, it is one of the finest places to visit in Dallas. Fair Park hosts the State Fair of Texas, and it is open to the public year-round.
