Here by known as the In-For Tree…I sketched this up one night as a wall hanger for a barren, life sucking, fluorescent filled, windowless project room I’ve been working out of at the day job. I took it and ran it through Adobe Illustrator and wound up printing it on our plotter at 48″ X 36″ and hung it up. I think I like it enough to offer it up as prints…Look for it on Etsy soon.

If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, you may have picked up on their use of ‘Hobo Symbols’ throughout this last season. Read about it HERE. Well, this spurred this idea a few weeks ago and last night, I sat down and hacked away at the graphic below.

I present you: A Hobo’s Guide to Fly Fishing

The 8 Faces of No Posts

Welcome to the new year and some new art…Expect to see some different thing posted over the coming weeks. Fair warning that it will not all be fly fishing related! These images are definitely a part of that “Not” fly fishing related thing I just mentioned.



I call them “The 8 Faces on New.” They were created one night while killing some time in front of the tv. All were completed on the iPad using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

Adventure and inspiration is wherever you happen to find it!


The piece below was done for Abel Reels as a new Tshirt design. If you have followed along for a while, you’ll know that I entered their “Reel Art” contest late last year…and came in second. But a few months later they contacted me about working on this.


This design is a take on the California flag and the fish within the bear is based on California’s State fish, the Golden Trout. The geographer in me took over at some point and I tried to incorporate all the varying geographic regions of the state within the bear. Enough talking…GO BUY ONE HERE!

Fly Fishing’s Venn Diagram

To honor John Venn’s 180th birthday, Google decided to make a handy dandy Google Doodle…And well, I needed to share this anyway and as soon as I saw the Goog this morning I new this was how it had to be done!

No matter how you enjoy fly fishing, be it from the surf, from the banks of a farm pond, right on down to your local river, or some far off destination I can only dream about…The excitement really happens the instant that fish meets your fly! That’s what this piece was all about…Enjoy

My wife leaves town for a couple of weeks, and this happens…My first foray into making a sculpture.

The Suspicious Fishus – 34″ tall and 35″ wide, the base and supports are rough cut mesquite, and the fish is comprised of maple and red oak. All the pieces were hand cut, sanded and fitted.

Just a quick update of some recent things that have been occupying what little free time I have anymore. I’m working feverishly on items for the Texas Council of the IFFF’s Expo coming up in June. Look for more on that later, but I would love to shake your hand at the event, so stop by the Destination Texas Fly Fishing page and get all the details.

First up…I joined Techshop, maybe the coolest place ever! Did I mention they have over a million dollars worth of tools at your disposal? These were cut using a CNC Waterjet cutter. This is just the beginning of the awesome that will come out this place.

Then I drew some stuff. I spend so much time in a digital realm that it’s always freeing to pick up a pencil and just ‘sketch’…

Wanted to share a little collaboration I worked on with Temple Fork Outfitters recently. If you haven’t heard, TFO released a new line of fly rods designed for throwing big flies at big fish. Musky in particular! You can read about it on Angling Trade

Through some friends in the biz I was put in touch with TFO and was asked to work up some ideas for a logo for the TFO ‘Esox’ rods. The image below is what we they decided on and ultimately went with. The top design will be silk screened onto the rods and the bottom will be used for promotional material.
