Phoenix Comic Con 2016

For anyone in the Southwest planning to attend Phoenix Comic Con in a few weeks, I’m happy to announce I’ll be exhibiting there for the first time! I’ll post my specific location closer to the date, but in the mean time I’m really looking forward to having the chance to meet some of my fans outside of LA. Happy humpday!

"Captain America: Road Trip"

I came home right after I saw "Civil War" and had to make this. I call it "Captain America: Road Trip." Marvel, can you please make a movie where these three guys just drive across the country fighting crime on their way to iconic tourist spots? I need the bromance to continue. I think we all do.

Happy Mother's Day

"The Hands of Time" - I'm always looking to push my storytelling and my craft so this year my Mother's Day tribute takes a different approach from my usual fare. I focused on hands because as newborns one of the only things we can do to interact with the world is to reach out aimlessly in what must be nonsensical haze. And because one of the very first things to reach back and let us know that we're not alone - that there's someone there to catch us, to reassure us that things are going to be ok - is our mother's hand. That first touch is one of the most important social contracts we make, and we can only be so lucky to be able to return the favor. To reassure our mothers when the nonsensical haze begins to surround them that they are not alone - that there's someone there who's thankful for everything they did and that we'll be ok thanks to them. Thank you, mom, for everything that you do!

"Standby Me" Series 02 - Bad Girl Edition

Don't you just hate it when your friend keeps checking her mirror instead of paying attention to you? I felt inspired recently to do another pairing of my Disneybounding series "Standby Me" but this time with a bad girl twist. Here's a modern take on The Evil Queen from "Snow White" and Lady Tremaine aka the wicked stepmother from "Cinderella."

"Small Dogs" Kickstarter Update

The first proofs for "Small Dogs" children's book are in, and I got to review them in person with my client rep yesterday. They're looking good, and I just have to make a few tweaks that only my eye can probably see as I want to make sure the artwork is printed as great as it can be. Thank you to Kickstarter and to everyone who's supported this project for allowing me to even get this far in the process. I can't wait to share the end product with all of you.

The Boys of Steel Are Back In Town

The boys are back in town! The boys are back in town! This is my tribute to the Supermen of media, to the different yet iconic live action incarnations of Superman throughout the ages. Who’s your favorite? There are even a few little easter eggs for all my fellow diehard Supes fans. Here's to Batman v. Superman! Also I've been super busy (pun intended) getting ready for WonderCon this weekend where this print will debut so I hope those of you going will stop by. Thanks for all the support!

Superman and Batman: Yin and Yang

I first created this Superman Batman Yin Yang concept as a commissioned sketch at #WonderCon 2014, and then painted it the following year. I thought it'd be the perfect piece for me to kick off Batman v Superman week especially since it highlights them as allies on the same side as opposed to the, you know, typical Hollywood formula of making the heroes fight themselves first until the villain makes them set aside their differences *cough Avengers cough*. Either way I'm excited to see it, and I'm hoping the movie really captures the mutual respect and admiration they have for each other.

"Small Dogs" Kickstarter Shirt Goal Met & First Sample

I'm happy to say that thanks to everyone's continued support we've reached our second stretch goal for "Small Dogs" meaning that all the shirts will be printed on the American Apparel tri-blend fabric from my chosen shirt company. I'm also happy to announce that I just received the very first shirt sample with the tri-blend printing, and it not only looks great but also feels great! If your pledge doesn't include a shirt but you would like one, you can upgrade your reward tier at any time. A big THANK YOU to all of you who've shared and supported this campaign! Stay Small :)
