I just got confirmed… and cemented into the 2016 San Francisco Zine Fest in Golden Gate Park. Last year was my first year behind a table. This year, the super fun one-day event is on Sunday, September 4th at the County Fair Building. Table number and times to follow. I’ll have all the Art-o-ramas on the table… plus some prints, and coffee cup art.
I did this recently for my brother’s wedding. Murphy is their pooch.
I will be giving a series of Sketchbooking Workshops through the Monterey Museum of Art in late July and August of 2016. In the three workshops, I will cover, sketch-journaling… info-sketching, and urban sketching (in the wild). I’m looking forward to sharing my years of sketchbookery to others!

I create and publish a zine called Art-o-Rama… It publishes 6 times a year (every other month)… and the latest issue is all about one of my favorite subjects… coffee! Mmmm… I love me some joe.
Past issue topics include:
My love affair with Ireland, RLS, “Eat, Drink, & Be Merry” (how they partied in Dickens’ time), what it’s like being “under water”… and so much more! I started the zine back in the fall of 2012… so there’s many a’few!
