Unlike all the others, this one of course is completely unachievable since the space program has been canceled.

This is the first of five images that I created to decorate my son’s room. He has been here for 4 months now and I am just now getting back to my blog… I’m hoping that you find these images so darned cute that you will forgive my absence.

This was sketched up for last weeks Random Words Art Challuunge. The words were Brain & Craft. After thinking about what I was going to do for about a week it finally hit me 20 minutes before it was due. The thought of the scarecrow “crafting” his own brain out of clay was the first thought then the rest just followed. It was also voted as the favorite from last week so thank you to everyone that voted for me.

OK so here is my contribution to R-WAC for February.
The word was Medieval so after going through various Dragon and Knight themed ideas, I decided to go with Robin Hood instead… and for no reason other than it sounding like a good idea he is going to square off against the Sherwood Sasquatch.
Overall I like how last month’s came out better, but this one will do.
The word for March is SOUTH, so check in every Wednesday at R-WAC to see my progress.

I was finally able to sit down and finish the Batman & Joker Commissions I started a few weeks ago, and here they are.
For these I used my Pigma ink pens to do the main inking of the characters, then I went over the whole thing with a really loose and rough ink wash to give it a really gritty feel. Finally once all that was dry (and after the paper was re flattened from water warping) I added color using Prismacolor markers.

On January 1st, 2011 (1/1/11 should have waited for more ones on 11/11/11) a couple of my friends got hitched. The bride saw a pair of wedding shoes online that were customized by an artist in a very unique way. She sent me the pictures and asked me if it’s something I thought I could do. Not wanting to say no to a bride to be (I think that’s 7 years bad luck or something) and seeing this as an opportunity to not only give her a one of a kind wedding present, but to try something new and out of my comfort zone.
So I asked her to make me a list of her and the grooms favorite things and used those ideas to decorate them. After making a mess of the “practice pair” of shoes by trying various paint markers and such I ended up using Sharpies. I found them to feel the most natural for me and they also gave the shoes a consistent hand drawn look. After I was done I put on several coats of protective fixative spray. The photos were taken by their wedding photographer.

Devilishly Dark & Beautifully Crafted since 1666. Diablo Dark is the fictional beer that goes down smooth!
So this is my entry for last weeks Random Words Art Challuunge. The random words were DARK / BEAUTY. Not sure why, but instantly I got an image in my head of a hot devil chick with a dark beer.
This image is available in my Zazzle Store on a variety of products.

Voltron: United And Drawn is here! I received my copies this week and I must say this book turned out great! I am really impressed with the quality that 5finity puts into their products. I have worked on several Sketch Card sets for them in the past, but this is the first time I was asked to create a fully finished piece of art to be published in a book.
The book can be purchase through Amazon.
“5Finity Productions, in association with Moonstone and World Events Productions, presents the first ever official art book based on the classic animated series VOLTRON: Defender of the Universe! An endearing blend of fantasy and mechanics, this legendary series/brand fused itself with social and pop-culture history. To many genre fans, VOLTRON was the original transforming robotic action series, and introduced an entire generation to the world of Japanese-style animation. A mix of official brand history, original artwork, fan memories, celebrity testimonials, and more, this book proudly celebrates VOLTRON's influence today - and beyond!”

Started working on a commission of Batman & The Joker this weekend. This is where I am at so far with them. I still have some tweaking to do before I move on to inks and color. Also, I would like to shout out a thank you to my buddy Cory for being such a good sport and posing for some reference pictures.

This is my entry for last weeks Random Words Art Challuunge. The words were RADIOACTIVE / BUTTERFLY. Which to be honest I had no clue what to draw until my buddy Andrew gave me this idea. I didn’t have time to finish it but I still like the idea a lot and I think that someday I will…maybe.
Random Words Art Challuunge is always looking for new people to submit art each week. Check it out, it can be very inspiring at times.

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend! Hope you didn’t get into too much trouble… oh you did…i see…well maybe this will cheer you up a little! everyone meet…
This is the first piece of art created for the other blog I co-founded, the R-WAC Art Deck . My goal is to make all the art I create for this group look like a campy retro movie poster. We have to create our art based off of 1 random word a month, which was Future (as you can tell I really dug deep…not). Shallow idea aside I am really happy with how this came out and I can’t wait to get started on the poster for next month.
I have also made this image available in my Zazzle store on a variety of products which you can see here Futura on Zazzle.

Zazzle: First of all, I’m sure some of you are aware already that I just created my first shop on Zazzle. You can check it out here My Zazzle or by clicking on My store on the menu bar over there.
Squidoo: I also created my first Squidoo lens which you can view here Squidoo Lens. Some cool things include my recommended graphic novels and a section where I discuss some of my art idols.
R-WAC Art Deck: I have also teamed up with 4 other awesome artists on a project we all created together. The idea is that each month we draw a word at random. We then have 1 month to create a piece of art that represents that theme. Each week all post an in progress shot and talk a little about our process (I post all my updates on Wednesdays by the by) The goal is for us to have enough art to create a deck of cards that features 54 pieces of original art. Check it out here R-WAC Art Deck. While your there check out the weekly “challuunge” at the top of the blog, that one is open to anyone who wants to participate.

This Angry Little Viking was my submission in last weeks Random Words Art Challuunge, the words were OLD / VIKING.
If you have not been there in a while go check it out we made some changes and are always looking for more submissions. If you have never been then I will give you the run down, every Friday we reveal 2 words, you then have 1 week to create a piece of art in any style you wish using those 2 words. At the end of the week all submissions are voted on and the winner gets his/her piece featured in the Winner’s Gallery as well as the privilege of choosing the next set of words. Hope to see some of you there!
Also I have created a product line featuring this little guy in my new Zazzle store which you can find here 3ddevine on Zazzle

This is a Flyer I did for my friends The Reagan Years back in October. They were playing in a bar called The Owl Club and wanted to have the flyer reflect that…and the singer has a weird thing for Owls…I'm looking at you Billy boy!
