Happy Father's Day Eve with "Con Dad"

Happy Father's Day Eve! One of the funnest things about doing conventions is seeing all the different kinds of people that come up to my booth including the parent/kid combos. This piece entitled "Con Dad" combines the more modern day younger 'Geek Dads' that I've seen at cons with the age old tradition of dads being the default pack mules everywhere they go. To all the dads both young and old, may your backs remain strong! Happy Father's Day 2016!

"Good Evening, Miss Lane" - Superman Tribute in the Style of Disney Legend Eyvind Earle

"Good Evening, Miss Lane" - My tribute to the iconic interview scene from the original Superman film inspired by the aesthetic of Disney legend Eyvind Earle. Considering most of Mr. Earle's work is of nature with virtually no architecture, it was definitely a challenge extrapolating his design language from those beautiful landscapes into what could potentially be an animated Metropolis. Up, up and away!

"Small Dogs" Is Going To Press

"SMALL DOGS" Update: I'm happy to say that earlier this week I was able to sign off on the new patch proofs I received from the printer which means that "Small Dogs" is going to press! Yup, after a few rounds of adjusting the color settings, I can finally get the book printed at the quality I wanted. I'll be obtaining all the other cool rewards for my Kickstarter backers in the mean time but if you'd still like a copy, you'll now be able to get one after I receive them. THANK YOU to those of you who supported the campaign and made this possible!

"Bat Boys" - A Tribute to all the Batmen of Film and TV

"Bat Boys" - My Batman themed celebration of all the live action Caped Crusaders from throughout the years - Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and who can forget Ben "Guns Blazing" Affleck. It's also got a bunch of little nods that any true Batman fan will appreciate like shark repellant spray, Wayne Tower, and even the infamous Bat nipples. Will be available on my online store soon!

"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!
