Rumble in the Record Store

Yeah, I’m back again with another doodle in the cheap sketchbook. What can I say? This torch that I found cannot be drowned. It seems that I haven’t enjoyed doodling this much since I was about five years old. Back … Continue reading

This is another of The Photo Elective series of photographs that Tina, I and every other illustration major attending The Philadelphia College of Art were required to shoot, process and print. My guess is that the notion of the class … Continue reading
