Cooler fall weather means cozy, cuddly naps for the little dragons of Southern Michigan.

Dragon meets Dragonfly

Sometimes a drawing just doesn’t work out the way I want it to. And that’s ok. There’s some elements I like in this one and I could probably keep noodling around with it but it’s time to move on.

Tea Time

The Semi-Daily Dragon is back! With the new kiddo at home, quiet moments drinking tea with friends are few and far between. They doesn’t stop me from thinking about it!

Dragon vs. Swan

The kiddo requested “a dragon and a swan” last week. Instead of doing the easy thing and just drawing a dragon and a swan, I drew two kids, a dragon and a swan. Take that, lack of ambition!

Let’s Race!

Today’s Semi-Daily Dragon brings you moar #seadragons. Did you know that #sea dragons can beat their fins at up to 40 times per second? That’s super fast! Their fins are few and tiny, however – the fastest sea dragon swim rate recorded is only 150 meters per hour.

In the Weeds

I’m really into sea dragons lately. Seadragons are related to seahorses and come in two varieties: weedy and leafy. They are amazingly colorful, ethereal, otherworldly creatures and I’m smitten with them.

Aurora Borealis

Spend an evening star-gazing with someone you love and sing along with today’s Semi-Daily Dragons: “Summer days drifting away to oh, oh the summer nights…”

Let’s Play

It is a gorgeous summer day here in southeast Michigan. Now that this illustration is done, it’s time to play!

Helicopter Seeds

There’s a magical three day window in southeastern Michigan when the strong winds of late spring bring down showers of helicopter seeds everywhere. The single moment of their descent spirals through sunlight, blue, soft clouds, rough bark, before coming to a motionless stop amongst the waving grasses.
