I for the most part always have a sketchbook on Hand. On the train, in a meeting, sitting around waiting , etc. Here is some selects of my personal favorites.
A JOURNEY WITHIN THE PETROSPHERE
I wanted to create a series in the stye of a field guide. The only catch being the crazy things I see within my mind.
Made these in photoshop using : polygonal lasso tool / paint bucket / and layers.
Then switched over to illustrator.
Been making these with basic sketch book, drawing them on the subway and such, then making them animate with my i-phone

I am Vain! So I draw Myself.
Sometimes i don't look like myself.
Sometimes people draw me, and that always makes me laugh.
ART WITH FRIENDS
One thing I really enjoy is collaborating with others. I took the initiative to reach out to my friends to start doing drawing collaborations.
It dons't matter if you think you can write or draw. It's just the act of doing it together that often results in some truly crazy shit that you normally wouldn't have thought of on your own.
It also serves a reason to just stop overthinking and make something.
People stop me while I draw on the subway and ask about my work. I wanted to create a business card that captured the essence of what I was doing. So I decided to make custom cards on water color paper, on which I could draw a unique picture on the spot. I decided to take it one step further and place two circles in the same spot on every card to create a connecting element.
Hand cut water color paper to size. Used my logo stamp, and then hand write the StephenPetronis.com on the backsides.
After Creating the cards. I turned 1 of them into a template. 2 circles in the same place. Every card will have the same 2 circles in the same place.
