Entries in Detroit Art (2)



It is that time again! Order your 2018 Greetings from Detroit Calendar! I have compiled my recent Detroit drawings into another calendar for your viewing pleasure all year long! This calendar features 12 drawings from the past year that I have created of different Detroit landmarks, places, and objects that strike my fancy! 

This year, I am doing something a little different with the calendars. I have decided to raise some money for a local charity that does great things.  The calendars will be $15 SHIPPED, and $5 from the sale of each calendar will go to an organization called Kids Kicking Cancer.  This Southfield, Michigan based organization works with children with disease and their families to battle the emotional and physical pains associated with that disease through meditation and martial arts. Their motto, "Power, Peace, Purpose," really speaks to the work that they do.  You can check out more of what this amazing organization does on their website, www.kidskickingcancer.org.  

Children with cancer deserve to heal, not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well.  As the old saying goes, "CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE!"  Please consider purchasing a calendar today, not just for the artwork, but for all the kids suffering with cancer or any other type of disease.  Let these children grow, pain free from the physical and emotional burdens that disease puts on them.  Purchasing this calendar will allow Kids Kicking Cancer to continue their outstanding work.  Every little bit helps!

There are 2 purchasing options for this calendar. The first option is for the calendar if you would like it shipped to you.  The second option is for if you would like to pick up the calendar from me, or we could meet at a mutual location near to me.  Please read the description near each button to purchase the correct option.  

This calendar would make a great Christmas gift for absolutely everyone! Or you could buy one, or two, or 8 for everyone in your family, especially those who now live out of state! PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW! LET'S GIVE KIDS KICKING CANCER A GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON!

Night Falls On A Phoenix Rising


"Night Falls on a Phoenix Rising"

I LOVE Detroit! And I LOVE Skylines! So needless to say, I love the Detroit Skyline!

I have worked in the city for almost 15 years, and I have seen the city change right before my eyes! Some good, some bad, and some GREAT!

This original piece is a small drawing, but it represents one of my feelings for the city of Detroit!

I don't want to talk about where Detroit has been, I want to talk about where it is going, where the Phoenix is Rising! I truly believe Detroit is being reborn! Detroit is rising from the ashes to be reborn into an even greater city!

I would love to hear your thoughts on this great city!

The original artwork is for sale. Prints are available as well. Please message me if you are interested in the original art. Prints are available at my web store at the link below:
