"Photographs, T-Shirts, key chains, refrigerator magnets, and even shot glasses are great ways to remember important events and special places you’ve been to in your life.  For me, I turn to sketches and drawing to help me make a memory that will last a lifetime. If I take a look at any one of these drawings, I can tell you exactly where I was when I started this drawing and what inspired it in the first place.  Most of the these drawings have a theme of a specific location, but some were inspired by my past and are a bit more complex. Not too complex though, I’m not clever enough to come up with something as amazing as some of my favorite artists including M.C. Escher or Salvador Dali. These pieces have helped me cement amazing memories and perhaps they will also help trigger treasured memories for others."
