ORANGUTAN

My friend suggested I add the lipstick to this picture. I love how it instantly transforms a pretty normal primate painting into something quite strange and creepy.

ART WALK

I displayed my art as part of the First Friday Art Walk in Nevada City. I was showing in a chocolate shop, which sounded like a bad fit to me, but as soon as I saw my work in that setting I realized it made perfect sense. My long running drive to paint with neon and pastels, and as much bright pink as I can fit in a picture made it go really well in a candy setting.


This was my most successful art show yet. I sold five paintings and lined up two potential sales in the future. I also sold a couple graphic novels and a dozen or so zines. I really appreciated how well this all went, and have no complaints! Also I received the greatest backhanded compliment of my life: 'oh, your art looks just like my 11 year old's!'
At this event I also premiered a new mini zine my friend Pat and I made together.  It has four titles and is about a boy and a frog. good stuff.

DESERT DWELLER

My first two page spread! From a comic I made years ago. I was long unsatifised with the printing quality, so I'm making some digital corrections to send it off to the printer for another run of copies.

MY MONSTER AND ME

An old sketch I made into a painting. Quick and fun project. I think I want to do a children's book in this style someday.

 Having Sperble Elite stickers printed. I wanted to use the cover image from the Sperble Elite graphic novel. Unfortunatly, the image needed a ton of work. The text was too big, the image was cut off if cropped into a square. The final image is what I settled on, the others are some work in progress examples.

ON THE EDGE OF A VOLCANO AND OTHERS


 Some recent Sperble Elite images. These first two are actually homages to He-Man illustrations. I had a 
 of a slump where I couldn't draw creatively for a minute, so I started doing these reference pictures. Turned out to be a lot of fun.
This one is a cutaway image of the Sperble Elite's Lair. Always a big fan of these cutaway pictures.
