I know I've been MIA for a while and in case some of you are thinking I upped and quit art and moved to the mountains I wanted to share why. A little while ago I got offered the opportunity to illustrate a children's book for Simon & Schuster's Kids label which I've been working on over the last few months. I can't say much more about it right now but I understand it'll come out later next year. In any case I've also got some really fun ideas brewing in my head that I can't wait to put out really soon. Happy December, everyone!

Don't forget your Fast Passes! "Standby Me" Series 01 and 02 ready for Long Beach Comic Con this weekend as well as on my site's store. I've been waiting to see how these two would look side by side and I just love their contrast especially their color palettes :)

Trying to sketch more every day to get away from all of my digital “cheats.” It’s amazing how used to knowing how easy it is to fix things in Photoshop that I’ve gotten lazy when it comes to my drawings. Oh, the hands are a little small? Well, I’ll just lasso them and increase their size. Easy on the computer but in a real drawing you have to erase them and draw them completely over. Makes you more disciplined to get things right from the start.

"Hey, Little Guy." I don't really know where the specific storytelling inspiration for this came from, but I knew I wanted to capture a quiet moment between pilot and small desert creature in this "Star Wars" themed piece. It was also an opportunity to do a low contrast dusk lighting scenario painting which I've been wanting to do for a while now.

Well that’s a wrap for San Diego Comic Con 2016! Thank you to everyone who stopped by my booth and welcome to those of you who just discovered my blog. And a BIG THANK YOU to Emily and the team at HitFix for interviewing me. It was a huge honor! I’ve returned to my “normal” life now more jazzed than ever to create some cool art and stories to continue sharing with you all. Until then, I’ll be posting a few pics (mainly cool cosplays I saw) that I think you’ll like as well :)
