Team Small - Meet Tolson

This is my friend Maria's French Bulldog Tolson originally from Russia! I'm a sucker for anything with big ears! Thanks to everyone who's submitted their dog to me. Aside from this fun activity I'm in the middle of preparing for WonderCon 2015, finishing a new painting, and trying to launch a new project off the ground so hang with me. In the mean time hope you enjoy the cute dogs :)

Small Dogs - 'Smallifying' Dogs

I've been 'Smallifying' dogs that I've come in contact with and it's been a lot of fun. As a former dog owner, I know the love people have for their four-legged kids, so it's been fun for me to combine that with my love of art into something nice for them. And now I'm extending that offer to my fans because I've always been appreciative of every fan interaction I've ever had.

So if you have a dog that you'd like to be 'smallified,' please check out my other site for all the info.

Stay wagging!

Sketchbook Time

I've always liked the expression 'raven-haired beauty.' It just has a nice ring to it :)

Sketch Time: Special Work Meeting Edition

I love meetings because they're a great time to sketch my coworkers. Here's my friend rocking the school teacher look. Just keep drawing, just keep drawing!

Sketchbook Time!

Some unsuspecting sketch victims waiting to get their car washed as well. Just trying to capture at least one iconic thing about each person.

Best. Gift. Ever! A Life Size Superman Cutout!

I'm a grown man and I can't describe how much I freakin' love this gift. My friend was hosting an event where they used these and she snagged this one for me at the end of the night. How cool was that! Here's to never letting go of the child inside all of us! Cheers!

"Small Dogs" - Meet Bella

Bella is the beautiful but mean leader of the big dogs. They don't take too kindly to small dogs and she's not shy about letting them know it either.

Happy Valentine's Day!

If we were all bears I'd imagine we'd be giving each other stuff humans holding hears for Valentine's instead. Hope you have a good day!

"SMALL DOGS" Revisited - Meet Winston!

Winston is a shy Dachshund who'd much rather watch the History Channel on the couch than play outside in the dirt. He's an incredibly smart and well-groomed pet, but not really that much of your typical dog. He'll follow you to the ends of the Earth, but you can trust that he'd much rather read about adventures than actually go out and have them.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Returning to WONDERCON 2015!

I just got confirmation that I'll be returning to WonderCon again this year. I'm so excited as it's one of my favorite shows, so I hope you'll get to join in on the fun. I've got some exciting plans for what I'll be doing this year including new artwork, more giveaways, and other interesting ideas I've been toying around with.

The show takes place April 3-5 in Anaheim, CA and typically sells out well before the actual show dates so be sure to get your tickets soon. Website link here for your convenience :)

Stay tuned for more updates!

Even Predators Need A Health Plan!

I got the idea for this gag while joking around with my friend the other day. The joke will only be apparent to fans of the movie or to people who are at least somewhat familiar with the mythology, but I'm ok with that. I grew up loving the original "Predator" movie and actually used to draw my own versions of the character. So in a way this illustration is for fans like me.

In case you're just 'dying' to know what the joke is, I'm still happy to explain it. In the movies whenever a Predator is injured beyond recovery and about to lose, they are supposed to initiate a self destruct sequence using their arm-tech thingy that detonates after about 30 seconds. So naturally the poor Predator patient has no insurance to cover whatever he may have come to the doctor for, so the doctor in turn initiates the self-destruct sequence for him.

It really is a shame that I live in such a highly developed country and yet proper health care is practically unattainable.

"SMALL DOGS" - Meet Chester

Chester is a portly Pug whose passion for people food is rivaled only by his love of comic books. He becomes Seth's friend when Seth moves to the city and helps him understand what it's like being a small dog. Happy Monday, everyone!

"Small Dogs" Revisited: Meet Seth

Meet Seth. He's one of the friendliest Chihuahuas you'll ever meet and just can't wait to be big like the other dogs. Poor little guy though doesn't realize yet that he's a small dog and that small dogs sort of tend to you know...stay small. Happy Friday, everyone!
