Laws of Motion

October 11th, 2015 A vector inspired by the song Laws of Motion by Man Without Country.


April 2nd, 2015 I decided I needed to learn how to use Inkscape. I took a friend’s painting and set out to recreate it as a vector.

Purple Wolf

March 2nd, 2014 I asked a friend what her favorite color was and what her favorite animal was. She said “purple wolf” and so I created just that.

For each day of June 2011 I decided to create a high-resolution vector image with colors and textures as the overarching theme. I think this will be a yearly adventure.

October 4th, 2007 Meerkats have always fascinated me. They have such intriguing and altruistic behavior. What better animal to vectorize?
