snacks n’ strokes — july 29

Come paint a masterpiece and eat like royalty at Snacks N’ Strokes on Tuesday, July 29, to raise money for the American Heart Association!

It’s a $20 minimum donation (per person) to join me, the fantastic Amanda Dyer and any friends and family you invite as we walk through the painting process to create either a 16×12 bold Nashville skyline or a homemade nature scene. Don’t consider yourself an artist? Have no fear! Amanda and I are excited to glide you through the process while you dine on delicious treats!


This event is open to all — So, invite your friends, family and coworkers and make a night of it! We will be meeting at 5:30 pm at the Immanuel Nazarene Church off Charlotte in west Nashville on Tuesday, July 29, so just come on over after work prepared to paint!

RSVP here so we can be prepared with your snacks and art supplies!

All supplies will be provided. You will go home with a wonderful new work (created by you!) to spruce up that wall that just needs a little something at home. Or, hey, this could be a perfect gift for that loved one’s upcoming birthday. Who doesn’t love a handmade painting as a gift!

So, come give to a great cause and eat snacks and paint. It’s gonna be fun. And again, no skills necessary. We’ll ease you into it before you even realize you’ve created something cool!

Here’s that RSVP link one more time, and yeah, we’ll see ya there.
Godspeed, wonderful friends.

broadway in nashville prints available now!

Round II of the Broadway in Nashville prints are in the shop and available NOW —

I did a round of 50 prints of this painting last fall and they sold out in 8 days. (!) I’m still astounded by it really. But, I’m proud to finally have another round ready for sale!

These are 18 x 24 inches, hand-numbered in a second edition set of 100, and signed on a 1 inch white border around the image. These are printed on a high-quality paper in Franklin, Tn (close enough.).

These are available now for $40. You can order one online, or just email, tweet, or facebook me if you are in the area and want to avoid shipping.

Don’t forget, these make great gifts. Send someone a little piece of this beautiful city!

Weddings are the coolest. They’re so close to dreams; it’s unlike anything else. All these people that you know and love from so many different stages of life all are joined together to just celebrate and dance while the rest of the world pauses for an evening. Magical stuff.

So, I am always excited when someone asks me to contribute something artistic to their wedding — even if it’s just a sketch or two. In backwards chronological order, here’s a few illustrations I had the privilege to create for some wonderful friends on their special days.

Justin & Jessica Neill — May 18, 2013.



These two awesome tech geeks just asked me to throw their names up on the vertical plasma at their warehouse venue, so I thought I’d have a little more fun with it. (Plus – This was an excuse to give my new Kuretake brush pen a whirl. Picked one up immediately after discovering Ryan Andrews’ stuff. You should read this comic of his.)

Jonathan & Lindsey Hays — June 8, 2012.


Terribly sorry to someone on ETSY. My sis, Linz, sent me a link and it was a basic, “Can you do this? But make it me and Jonathan?” So, I obliged. This modern style juxtaposed nicely with their rustic, outdoor wedding. And it suits their new place well I think.

Paul & Katie Tucker — August 6, 2011


Katie the crafting fiend built basically everything but the building and the people at her wedding and reception. Amazing stuff. She and Paul asked me to outline a basic tree for the intention of a fingerprint leaf guestbook to blossom as each guest said hello. And now it’s planted as a nice memento on their wall.

So yes, if you have any painting, drawing, illustration ideas for an upcoming wedding of yourself or a loved one, say hello! I would love to make you something for the very special occasion.
