How I Wood Burn A Vikings Pic

This is a short time-lapse video clip of me working on burning this Vikings piece that is based on the Netflix series by the same name. I am Swedish on my mother’s side so have always felt a real connection with that Norse ancestry. I really loved this series…watched the entire thing all the way through twice, lol! So, this piece is a “just for fun” project for me! See more of my projects…both for…

Custom Burned Guitar

I was contacted by a local guy who is working on a custom guitar as a gift for a long-time friend and band member. He wanted to know if I could burn some customization onto both the head stock/neck as well as a commemoration on the back. I was happy to do this burning and am excited to see the piece completed. My customer provided the instrument pieces, sanded down and ready for burning, which…

In Progress – Presidential Portrait – Donald J. Trump

This is my current “Just For Fun” project. It’s been awhile since I created a piece on vegetable tanned leather, and since I happen to have some on-hand, I decided this might be a fun one to work on. I’ve also been wanting to create a larger piece as an example of my portrait work. What better person than President Trump for such a piece? This one is 16″W x 20″H and that’s a standard…

Klaus Mikaelson Portrait

My current Work In Progress… Klaus Michaelson is my favorite character from the television series’ The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. I knew I wanted to create a series of burnings of several of the characters from both shows and it was no contest, for me, which character I wanted to burn first. Klaus is the bad guy you hate to love. He is capable of unimaginable evil and viciousness…while at the same time possessing…

Custom Cutting Board – Raffle Winner

I belong to several local Chambers of Commerce, including the Forest Grove, Oregon Chamber. They had an annual Chamber dinner, at which they conducted a raffle. I offered to supply a $49 retail value, custom-laser-engraved bamboo cutting board to one of the raffle winners. This board is the piece I created for a co-chamber member who represented Waste Management NW. He created this custom design, which I burned onto a 17″W x 12″H bamboo cutting…

Two Little Girl Jewelry Boxes

I was contacted by a local guy who was making two essentially identical boxes that he was going to turn into jewelry boxes as gifts for his girlfriend’s two daughters. He knew the images he wanted to use and the font style. So, I just had to put those together in a pleasing layout. He is a woodworker himself, so brought these to me as solid blocks of wood that he planned to finish and…

Severus Snape Portrait

Snape is my favorite character from the Harry Potter series. I guess I must have a soft place in my heart for the supposed “villian”…at least in some stories. Throughout almost the entire Harry Potter saga we are led to believe that Severus is someone to be feared. That he is a “bad guy” and out to get Harry and his friends. But in the end we discover that he is really the ultimate good…

Harry Potter Portrait

UPDATED: 3/20/2019 – I’ve added the finished piece. Of course, as an artist I’m never really sure when a work is really DONE. You can always add a little more shading here…a little more smoothing there. I’m sure I’ll probably continue to made subtle changes. But he is essentially done now and hanging on my office wall… Can you guess which character is NEXT in my series??? — I’ve been having a yearning to play…
