Just Keep Drawing! Just Keep Drawing! Wonder Woman Edition


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"


"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.

That's a Wrap for San Diego Comic Con 2016


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 :)

Jaime Jones Studies




These are two studies inspired by modern day master Jaime Jones that I did based on his Barbarian piece (the third in the set) for my Experimental Digital Painting class with John Park over at Brainstorm School . It was an exercise in studying his use of edges and mark making, but I thought it'd also be fun storytelling wise to use these exercises to illustrate the moments leading up to his shot.

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!
