Now With Imagekind!


I'm Very Happy to announce that my prints and artworks are now available on Imagekind! Being a quality snob (especially when it comes to printing), I have long searched for an online service in which to offer prints to my satisfaction. I was thrilled with all of the options available through Imagekind. They allow you to customize your choice of print paper, matting, framing and even do canvas prints! If you don't want to be bothered with all of those details, you can simply choose the recommended selections I have already prepared for you! Prices vary from the economical to deluxe. I hope that you give my galleries a look and find something special to gift yourself or someone special this holiday season! As always, I would be honored to have my work hanging in your home or office!

Please know that I will still offer signed prints of any art that you see on my websites. Kindly contact me personally with your order. All info can be found at my site, here!

I Have To Admit...

Fall is not one of my favored seasons, but it sure can be pretty even on the greyest of days!

Happy Anniversary To My Favorite Flyboys (and Gals!)


In 2007, I decided to attend a kite festival in Wildwood, NJ and had my mind blown! I met the founding four members of iQuad and saw my first ever precision kite flying team! On FOUR lines no less!!! Little did I know that it was also a premier event for them as a team! I went home from that festival and immediately invested in a Revolution kite! I had dismal luck with 2 line sport kites in the past. Little did I know what I was getting myself into, but I HAD to try this! It was exactly the kiting zen I had been searching for!

Five years later, iQuad is celebrating their 5th Anniversary and 100th festival at the Borneo International Kite Festival in Bintulu, Malaysia! They have built their team up into a very well oiled machine consisting of 8 talented men and women with additional alternate members throughout the United States and Canada. Some of those amazing folk have gone on to form their own uniquely wonderful flying teams!


Five years later, I am obcessed with this sport and am a halfway decent "Rev" flier. I have met wonderfully creative people and made friends with fliers all over the globe who either already flew or had experienced The iQuad Effect themselves. I'd be insanely curious to know just how many people have picked up quad kite flying because they saw the magic of an iQuad performance.

I was quite honored when iQuad approached me to design their 5th Anniversary Logo! :D I wanted to create something appropriate that conveyed the fun and complexity of what they do. In my mind it also had to be as colorful as the individual personalities of it's team members.

I would like to wish the team a Very Happy Anniversary and most of all say THANK YOU for getting me off the ground!

Remembering 911


Remembering all those who perished and all who survived on this extremely sad day ten years ago. Time has finally given us a place to grieve, but many are still dealing with the after effects. May we find resolution to this insane mess some day.

I Won't Deny It

This is my most favorite time of the year...


The urge to firmly stay put is strong.

New Work From Mark!


I think this woman's nautical sleeve has got to be one of my new favorites that Mark has done! I've just recently gone and updated his web gallery with all kinds of new work. Go check it out! Summer is one of the best seasons to get a tattoo (and display them too)!

Ever Honor Our Fallen


In honor of Memorial Day I thought I'd feature one of the many cool patriotic tattoos done by my brother, Mark Leshock. He has the opportunity to meet many of our brave servicemen and women in his line of work and always puts in the extra effort to give them something special. Nearly every generation of our family has fought for our country. We remember them this weekend and all of our military overseas who fight for the right to freedom.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


I have always been very inspired by Celtic art and design. My personal logo even reflects that interest. The Celtic Nations have always possessed a wonderful joyful spirit rich in history, art and of course music. They are a strong hard working people who still found a way to celebrate life even during the toughest of times. I admire that. When St. Patrick's Day rolls around, that spirit is what I celebrate since I cannot claim any celtic heritage. May your shamrocks been green and not your drinks today! ;D

ps. For those that are Xm/Sirius listeners, tune into channel 45 today! :)

Happy Valentine's Day!


What would Valentine's Day be without a little bit of candy? My personal favorite of all are chocolate covered pretzels! Lucky for me I live in Pennsylvania where they originated in the USA from German immigrants and are plentiful! Pretzels even look like little hearts, so to me they make the perfect gift and expression of love at any time of year. My pretzel of choice comes from Tom Sturgis Pretzels, but visit any candy maker worth their salt and you'll find chocolate covered pretzels. My home turf was once filled with many different candy making families. Sadly they have been disappearing over the years, but a few great places are still standing the test of time. One such candy maker is Premise Maid Candies in Breinigsville, PA. Beyond their killer selection of fine candies and chocolates, they also provide a really wonderful atmosphere in which to shop. I can't resist the temptation of popping in there from time to time. During the non holiday season they also sell ice cream, coffees and both home made and local desserts in their cafe. It's fun to visit their old world shoppes located out in the middle of the beautiful rolling farmland. I love to patronize local small businesses who are doing things right!
