Today is my birthday and the launch of an online store where you can find my original art for sale. Now you can purchase the inked originals of some of my pieces that I’ve sold colored prints of such as the Nazi Zombie and Oogie Boogie. Check it out here: ONLINE STORE
This is a piece that kind of just rushed out of my head and onto some bristol in less than a day. I haven’t done a segment talking about process in years so consider this the relaunch of the “Anatomy of” series I once had going on Myspace when that was active. See this blog through to the end to get the full experience please. If not, just skip to the bottom to see the finished...

That Old Familiar Feeling - Figure Drawing

So many interesting moments happen within the rearranging of scenes and dialogue balloons! I...

I am currently updating my presence all over the internets to better optimize my search engine...
Possession - Self-portrait
This is a brand new self-portrait I made using Manga Studio. It was colored quickly in Photoshop. I really like how Manga’s default inking pen looks so authentic compared to any brushes I ever used in Photoshop. The transition to this program was pretty rough at first, but I have adjusted. It only took nearly a year of putting off learning it for me to buckle down and get serious about using...
I'm Not Done - 005
Back to using Manga Studio. New portrait WIP. I get so bored with standard portraits so I like to transform myself.
