In preparation for the opening of my show tomorrow I have made this short film. Incase your not already aware based on my months of posting on the subject tomorrow in Florida my gallery show Equality and Individually opens. This is a group art show with myself and a group of chimps that live in a sanctuary in Florida. It includes five collaborative paintings that I did with the chimps and the show is designed to raise money and awareness for chimps that spent there lives in cages at medical laboratories and are now living a free life in sanctuary.

Chimp Sketch of the Week #36


Dorothy was a 13 year old chimp that recently passed she lived most of her life in a laboratory but luckily was able to live a very small part of her life in sanctuary.

Dorothy was born on the first day of spring in 1998 at The Coulston Foundation in Alamogordo, NM.  Coulston loaned Dorothy to another laboratory when she was very young. After Save the Chimps took over The Coulston Foundation, they were able to secure her return. Dorothy made the journey to Florida on her 13th birthday.

To find out more about Dorothy and make a donation in her honor to help other chimps in need visit Here 

The portrait of Dorothy below will be available for purchase soon. This portrait along with many others, including some done in collaboration with chimps were created to raise money and awareness for chimps in sanitary and laboratories around North America. I will be having a joint art show with the chimps in Florida this May. More on that soon…

Chimp Sketch of the week #35

Art Rage

This image was done on my friend Monika Manieckis iPad after an amazing lecture at the Society of Illustrators that she gave including a demo of her painting a still life. After the lecture a few of us went for drinks and I got my own privet demo. When I sat down to draw something what else would I make. Essentially this is a finger painting. not my best work but this was fun...Thanks Monika!
