Charcoal Self-Portrait

I did this during my Junior year. The assignment was to draw ourselves but not to show our faces. I used black and white charcoal and grey chalk. Capturing my leather jacket was a challenge, but I liked how it turned out.

Jesus Shirt

I did this in my sophmore year in Mrs. Wilson's high school art class. It earned a silver medal at Nebraska State Visual Arts Competition. I did it in ink and used pointillism (thousands of tiny dots). I especially like it because I'm wearing one of my favorite T-shirts.


This is a scratchboard portrait of my dog, Quincy. A scratchboard is a white board covered in black ink. By using special tools, you scratch away the ink revealing the white underneath, so it's like drawing in reverse. It's a difficult medium because it is almost impossible to correct mistakes. I love how doleful Quincy looks in this picture. He is a great dog.

Good and Faithful Servant: Michael Reagan

This is the most recent in a series of ink drawings I did for my school newspaper. The illustrations were for articles about the lives of great Christian thinkers.
