TWO PICTURES


Two pictures, ink wash and gouache.  Referenced from photos. They are okay, but not what I intended.

1 WEEK ON THE ROAD



 A new week comic. This one covers a trip through Olympia down to the bay area. The timeline of it gets super wonky, but I still enjoy it.
Now, I think I'm ready to make a book of all these week comics!

10,000 VIEWS!!! WHAT?!

HOLY SHIT! 10,000 VIEWS!

I've had a long running obsession with checking the viewer statistics on my blog. I know, that's kind of self-absorbed, but I'm really curious why so many people from Russian and China look at my art blog. Anyways, I checked after my most recent posts and it turns out I've gotten 10,000 views! This is awesome and crazy. I know in Internet numbers that's really not much, but for me as a person it's amazing to think that many people have checked out my work. Though, knowing the internet probably half of them are bots.

So thanks to everyone who views my art! I hope people enjoy.


 Some He-Man fan art.

THE ADVENTURE ZONE!


Some fan art for The Adventure Zone, my current podcast obsession. Looked at some other fan art, but I tried to do my own version of the characters. I really like my version of Meryl, the Dwarf in the middle.

SKELETOR AND SNAKE MOUNTAIN

A picture of Skeletor I made for a friend. Might do some more Masters of the Universe fan art, a big fan of their absurd character designs.

ZOO SKETCHES


 Some sketches from a visit to the zoo in Chicago. The zoo is always kind of uncomfortable, but it's the only chance to draw exotic animals in action.

Sperble Elite Slideshow

 Made a slideshow of the art of the Sperble Elite. Got the idea from Facebook, who constantly try to make me buy a slideshow of my own art from them. So I just did it myself. Here's the link:

Got a small wacom tablet, trying to learn to digitally color using it. Here's some of my attempts so far.

HOWARD THE DUCK

Another Howard the Duck. Reading the original Steve Gerber run. I think if I ever had to pitch a story to Marvel, it would involve Howard.

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.


(Imagine 'Goodbye Horses' playing along to the GIF)

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.

THE WILD HUNT


A picture I drew for a recent RPG session I ran. This is the wild hunt, a mythological hunting party led by Woden, a strange branch off of the Odin myth. I remember reading some myth as a kid where Woden carried the full moon between antlers mounted off his crown. Always loved that idea and wanted to use that visual.

FLYER, ODDJOB ENSEMBLE, PINE STREET RAMBLERS, ISADORA

A recent flyer, my first in quite a while. My girlfriend is playing this show, and had be draw this flyer in one evening. Once again, working under a time limit gives better results. You can see one line written in a different hand writing, some information I forgot to include that was added later.

An image I made for my friend's band, Extinction Grove. It wasn't the picture I intended to make, but the one that ended up happening.

Space Wooble

My latest painting. Based on an old sketch, I painted this in two days. Lately I've found that painting faster works far better. I'm more likely to actually finish the painting if done quickly, and it tends to have more motion and character to it.

SPERBLE ELITE HEADSHOTS.



A recent attempt at digital coloring a picture of the Sperble Elite. Below I included two earlier version: the original black artwork and the first draft of the colors.
