 http://sidelinedaddy.wordpress.com/ to see the comic strip

As a parent, coach, former athlete and artist, I wanted to create a humorous slant to a serious issue that plagues our communities nationwide resulting in negative experiences for our youth.  The issue: negative cheering at youth sporting events.

As an artist I created Sideline Daddy a character that combines the worst of all the horror sports stories I’ve personally been involved in, witnessed and heard wrapped into one crazy parent.  The comic is meant to be humorous, vulgar, using senseless cursing and violence at times that may seem over the top.  All of this with purpose to show us SD’s how ridiculous we look and sound.

The next few weeks I will share my book on sideline daddies.  Don’t be a Sideline Daddy!!!!

I’m proud to announce that for the fourth straight year I will be hosting free art classes for the youth of Denver at the Eloise May Library.  This year’s theme will be Grow to be: Dream Reality and I hope to take it to the next level.

This year I’m looking for a little financial help to advertise the program, purchase supplies and give a free art kit to each participant. I look to give each student a sketchbook, colored pencil set, sharpener, and any other cool swag I can secure from companies.  To Support I’m offering $25 8×11 limited edition prints of

For the past few years I have been applying for public art projects, only to be rejected a few 100 times. I feel I was turned down not because of art but my lack of public art/free standing object experience.

About two years ago I started look for an artist who has experience with public art experience.  I’m proud to announce after an extensive search I’ve partnered with sculpture and welder Wayne Collins.

Wayne not only brings the ability to bring my ideas to the world of steel but brings more than 15 years experience in iron work and fabrication!

With our mutual love for art look for Wayne and I to maze out the public art community on a nationwide level in 2015!!! STAY TUNED in the new year!!!

Thanks Washington Redskins!

This will be the maze used in the Washington Redskins activity book to promote literacy. My second year participating in the publication was a challenge. Because the way maze-ing works I had to play with a few things to make the spear standout. This is their alternate helmet.

Although it was tough I love how it looks. I want to thank the organization for believing in my style and giving me an opportunity to provide art for the youth of the D.C. area. Hopefully my Broncos will see the light and hire me to maze out the Bronco!
