The Shape of Maryland

Maryland has a lot of waterfront. You realize this if – like me – you decide to try to draw the outline of the state. Next weekend, I am playing two shows in Maryland at Delmarvalous Americana House Concerts and Macum Creek Concerts. You are welcome to join us. I drew two guitars on the […]

The Boots at North Star Mall

I drew a sketch and watercolor of the 35-foot tall boots installed beside North Star Mall in San Antonio. When I was a kid, these boots impressed me more than the Pyramids of Giza. They symbolized the heights of civilization– namely a 3 story mall that was a home for all my materialistic dreams.

Sam’s Burger Joint

New Year’s Resolution: I hereby resolve to play songs at Sam’s Burger Joint with my friends on Thursday, January 4, 2024. You can get tickets here.

Sideline Conversation

I drew a cartoon of what I learned from another parent last weekend (while watching my kid cover the goal in a lacrosse tournament)

Fork in the Road On Saturday mornings when I was a kid, I would watch cartoons for hours. My parents said if you watch too much of those, you’ll turn into one.

Beautiful Accidents I’d like to propose a toast to the people who made this day and every other day possible for us — cheers to our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. The 8 adorable people I sketched above are your cousins (we’re all cousins) and my great-grandparents. Somehow they got together long enough to make this conversation […]

Dosey Doe

I love seeing the neon sign of a welcoming place in the night. In my experience, all the people at Dosey Doe, from the sound engineers to the waitstaff to the owners, go out of their way to make sure folks have a great time any night you’re with them. We’ll be playing an album release […]

The Saxon Pub – Album Release Show on November 7

The Saxon Pub holds a special place in my heart. Here’s two drawings I made of it – the front porch of the entrance and the neon sign on South Lamar. I first saw Rusty Weir play here on a Thursday night in 1995. I talked to him after the show and told him I […]

The Post in Fort Worth on Sunday October 15

This Sunday, October 15, Mike Graham and I will be swapping songs at a great listening room in Fort Worth called The Post at River East. The show starts at 6pm. Mike and I have played a songswap together at this venue once before – last summer – and it was a pleasure. The folks […]
