Greetings and Salutations

Welcome to the newly redesigned! It’s bigger! More robust! Mobile friendly! Has the ability to comment, search, repost and share! I transplanted my old Process Blog into this site in the Tutorial section. Overall, it should be easier for me to update and incorporate new and fun things. I’ll be fleshing out the remainder of the old content as we go. Rest assured the paintings are all here. I’ll be adding content back into the Flyer section and adding a 4×6 Drawing and Sketchcard sections. There’s also plans to merge my Shop into the site. Hopefully, there won’t be any visible hiccups, but if there are feel free to let me know.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at the wild illustrative world I’ve immersed myself in.

Star Wars Sketch Cards

photo04Back in July of this year I had the fantastic opportunity to participate in creating a batch of sketch cards for TOPPS, specifically to be used for an upcoming STAR WARS trading card set; CHROME PERSPECTIVES: JEDI VS SITH. This is the first time I’ve ever contributed sketch card art for anything let alone for Topps and Star Wars. It’s was a big deal for me! I produced 56 cards in about 3 weeks. I put all of these sketch cards here and in the Sketch Cards section of the Gallery. Granted they’re only sketch cards and will be randomly inserted into packs, but it’s a start. I hope to be invited for more work with Topps in the future. As part of payment, I received 6 Artist Return cards that I specifically selected. I plan to have them up on eBay for sale soon. PATREON subscribers and those who have signed up for the NEWSLETTER have priority. Join in if you want dibs on the action. Stay tuned for details!

Podcast Interview: You Can’t Handle the Truth

I was invited to join the film review Podcast You Can’t Handle the Truth to review/discuss Crimson Peak and talk a bit about my art. Not too spoilery. Tangents run amuck though. lol

Have a listen HERE.

I have to stop saying that I did that painting in 2013. It was 2012! Golly, how time flies. I also found out that the film’s ghost concept designs were Guy Davis NOT Mike Mignola. So close. Lastly, it’s fun to point and talk art on an audio podcast. 😛

Thank you Sean and Aaron for having me on!

Drawing-A-Day 2014

October is here and the way I like to contribute to the Halloween spirit is drawing a horror character a day for the entire month… that and watch scary movies and eat lots of candy.

I’ll be posting them all over on the Patreon site. All the even days (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc.) are Patreon supporter exclusive content. To see those sketches, you’ll have subscribe. $1. Seriously, for a minimum of $1 all 31 days of sketches can be viewed. You can then either remain a patron, increase your support, or cancel your subscription at the end of the month.

HERE check them out.
