My Dad recently gave me his stamp collection from childhood with permission to do what I want with it. I’ve been fun making various designs with them. He had a whole bunch of various Queen Elizabeth stamps and after her recent passing I thought it would be fun to make various art pieces out of them.

I recently started sending international postcards to random people through a website called postcrossing.com. It’s a way for people to connect with others in a more personal way through postcards. Some people enjoy getting homemade cards or enjoy cards with stamps on it so here are cards I made for them.
My friend gave me this Buddha figure. I think we could all use a little Buddha in our lives 🙂
When we were on the rim of the Grand Canyon a couple of years ago we saw this most amazing California condor giving a show to a massive crowd slightly above it. It stood on that rock fanning it’s wings the entire time we stood there. I swear it loved having an audience. I took this picture and wanted to do an art piece of it. I finally got around to it this year.
School during COVID
This was the beginning of one of the most challenging years of my life so far.
There is an Egyptian museum in San Jose with some wonderful hieroglyphics. These are some of the symbols that I saw however the order in which they appeared were changed simply for artistic purposes.
Cosmo the Llama
This art piece was inspired by my two night stay on in a yurt on a farm. Cosmo is the llama on the farm and he oversaw the sheep and other animals there. He was a very mellow and cool llama; I strive to be like him. Cosmo is Cool.
We recently stayed on a small farm in the country in a yurt that had a beautifully painted ceiling. I was so inspired when I got back home that I needed to recreate the artwork in my sketchbook. So here it is… Yurt + ART = YART
