A Happy Robot

Psychologically speaking, this picture just appeared out of nowhere. It's just a simple painting of a robot traipsing through the forest as it comes upon a monarch butterfly in mid skip.

Birthday Present + Portrait = Explosions

This is a quasi-family portrait of Lacie,Hugo and I that started as a joking sketch (link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lacierunolfson/634475786/ ) but was requested by Lacie's mom to be turned into a fully painted portrait for her birthday present.

It's meant to printed out at 11"x17"
