Gettin there :)
Here’s my most recent panel - I’ve been keeping this one under wraps because it was a surprise BUT i just spilled the beans! This panel references a quick lil sketch I finished a few months back.
Here’s a progress photo of my newest window :) I hope to finish up within the next couple weeks.
Went digging in the stacks tonight and found some nice old drawings of Mirav. Some of my favorite drawings are of her.
I honestly can’t believe how long I’ve spent on one individual piece - THATS SOLE PURPOSE IS TO BE STEPPED ON! - now i understand why you don’t see latch hook rugs anymore. Well, here I am! Bailing on plans, hunched over like a psycho binge watching Outlander and Battlestar Galactica, just trying to finish the dang thing…. here’s what it looks like, 7 months later…. 800 HOURS AND COUNTING!
Couple weeks into my new window. Its so difficult making progress when I only have a 3.5 hours a week to dedicate to glass works. Hopefully the tide will change and I’ll be able to spend more time in the studio.
Finally finished preliminary sketch for my next stained glass window. It doesn’t look like much now but just wait! More pictures to come…
This past week has been a test of endurance! Wednesday I finished my first stained glass window, Thursday night I worked on a 3 hour long pose of Tendai and topped the evening off with my friend Natalie at the Lone Palm. Then I tended bar at the 500 club Friday night, attended a wedding in Oakland Saturday, worked happy hour at the 5 on Sunday and started Monday morning off with a triptych of 15 minute drawings. Tomorrow I officially start my second window! more pictures to come :)
Tryin’ to hammer out the final design for my next window 👋🏽🕺🏻

Spent Monday morning drawing at 23rd Street Studio. Here are a couple sketches of our model Jeremy during that session. Full (15 min pose) Portrait (40 min pose)
Here's a new window in the works -
Each window i'm making is supposed to pair with one of my latch hook rugs. I would love to eventually sell them as sets and work on commission for unique homes and spaces. More photos to come!
Currently working on a series of stained glass windows to accompany my latch hook rugs. Here's another idea sketch for a possible window in the works! More photos to come :)
I've spent the past few months working on a few very special pieces. Here is a picture of one in progress in my living room. After putting in more than 125 hours i cannot believe it isn't even half way done! More pictures to come :)
Last week one of my favorite models moved back to Israel after modeling for 30 years in the Bay Area. Here is a diptych I made a couple months back. I feel so grateful for the past 4 years - thank you, Merav!
Quick lil sketch of Don taking an afternoon nap
I can't wait to unveil my new project!! Here's a lil hint :)
Happy to get back into figure drawing after being on the road. Here's a quick sketch from last week :)
Finally finished an 500 Club advert I've been working on for a while. If you're in the neighborhood come say hello! I'm behind the bar every Sunday from 3-8pm :)
