I never posted this up on this blog, but I thought I'd share a piece that I illustrated for the National Geographic Magazine for an article about the endangered Juan Fernandez Firecrown Hummingbird. It appeared in the September 2007 issue...better late than never. Hope you enjoy!

So sorry for the long absence...I think it's due time for an update. So, recently I had done some contract work for a company called The Trail of Painted Ponies. (The company originated in Santa Fe, New Mexico as a public art project that invited over a hundred artists to transform life-size fiberglass sculptures into beautiful works of art...now it's a distinguished collectibles company.) I had the opportunity to complete three designs for them, one of which became part of an autographed series (Summer 2008) - Stagecoach Pony...the other two are part of their Holiday collection - Twas the Night Before Christmas and Wooden Toy Horse Pony. From concept to reviewing the last sculpts and samples of the figurine, I had a great time working on these and I look forward to working with this company again in the future. In the meantime, you can check them out at your local Hallmark store or at the following websites: www.trailofpaintedponies.com or http://www.paintedponiescollectibles.com/index.asp. Now, go get yourself a pony! =) Thanks for dropping by!
