In late 2011 I was introduced to Patty the Princess of Power, the Epilog Laser Cutter at MAKEatx in Austin - a membership based laser-cutting workshop run by the wonderful Eve and Kristen.  I'd had a few ideas in mind for years, but never actually finished producing them because I hadn't found the perfect medium.  The laser cutter is just that.  I began using it as an illustrative medium, instead of paints or pencils.  Every image is first hand-drawn, and my hands are on everything that I make, even if Patty helps out.  

Luckily, I found a couple of wonderful laser-cutting options in the northeast.  I'll be spending time at both danger!awesome in Cambridge, MA and at AS220 in Providence, RI.  I'm looking forward to not only continuing my own production, but also being around others who are using these amazing machines for creative purposes.  It makes it all the more inspiring.

26 RARE BEARS!

A few years ago, I had the idea to invent a bear species for each letter of the alphabet (oh, the things that come to mind in the wee hours of the night).  It wasn't until I was introduced to a laser cutter that I realized the perfect medium for this project.  All images are my own original illustrations, etched into quality wood.  Here's a sampling.  Click below to find the full alphabet and individual bears on my etsy page.
