Thank you very much! Great to hear that my FLIGHT comics still have an audience after all these years.
Hey there, so sorry for how long it took for me to realize I never responded to you. Thanks do much for the supportive comments, and thanks even more for linking me to your own work . Holy crap you’ve got some spectacular stuff! Definitely will have to keep in touch with you.

Although my official job in the Marine Corps is 4641-Combat Photographer, I generally try to keep this page a sketch/illustration blog, since I consider art my primary thing in life, whereas military photography is kind of a secondary skill that I acquired when I enlisted.
But while looking through some old photos I took during an unusual training assignment, I came across these shots I just had to post. This was during a backstage photo op with Nobuo Uematsu and his band The Earthbound Papas. These were taken in January 2012 at MAGfest.
Uematsu was a very merry guy, and his favorite beer is Sam Adam’s Boston Lager.
Girl reading at Crossroads Coffee in Richmond.

1911’s are pretty guns, but so strangely difficult to draw.

I see this guy at Crossroads Coffee all the time.
Don Carlos’ son at the Richmond Folk Fest. Didn’t catch his name, just had a minute to sketch him while my cousin was performing with them.
