My drawings are created in graphite, charcoal, felt-tipped markers and colored pencils. Below are some samples from each media.

This piece was done on a 4 X 4' piece of paper. At the time, it was the largest artwork I had ever made. In the center is an eyeball, in which a graphite self-portrait is the pupil. Encircling the eye is a tree and dragon. Aluminum foil and waxed paper circles decorate the background.

This is a graphite drawing I did in my Elements of Design course at the RC College at U of M Ann Arbor. We were studying perspective. This was an actual hallway and drinking fountain right outside my classroom. I sat there the whole time I drew it.
During one of my drawing courses at U of M, we spent a lot of time drawing boxes covered with sheets and other white objects. I didn't like it too much, but looking back, I know I really improved my ability to see small gradations in value. I can also draw angles more accurately when replicating real-life scenes.

For a couple of my drawing classes, we had live nude models to draw. Figure drawing is one area I could use more practice in, but this was one of my better ones.
These are examples of my felt-tipped marker line designs. When I go to camping/music festivals, it is very easy to bring a sketchbook and markers, so all of these were created outdoors. None are pre-planned (except for the fact that I wanted the first one to read "Zappa") and are pretty much just random doodles.

This is an abstract colored pencil drawing I made for a friend.
