Sad girls...

Here's a group of crying little girls done a while back, just in time for Christmas.

Table top design...

So this is a quick pass at a design for the top of a friend's new... let's say... gaming table. The final table stands about three feet tall, and is eight feet long and four wide. I'll be sure to take photos of the work in progress and some final shots of the finished painting. When not in use, the plan is to hang the table length-wise so it serves as some decoration on the back porch.

Possible Holiday Card...

Found this old photo a few days ago and thought it might make a fun holiday card. Maybe I can convince Betina to send it out. BEST. TIME. OF YEAR. EVER. Whoo whoo!

Some Concept Stuff

These are a few examples of a (failed... grrr) concept artist test taken recently. It was all done after hours over the course of a little less than a week. They're all at an early development stage, and done in a style I normally avoid, but I had fun doing them.

More soon...

Some color thumbnails and stuff...

Here are some images I made up for my little mini-pitch for the Cartoonstitute Shorts Program over at Cartoon Network. The thumbnails especially are really rough, but you can kind of see what I was going for.

The story itself is called (tentatively) "Big Sky", after the term Big Sky Country, and is a sort of cowboys-aliens-steampunk-mishmash of fun.

Anyway, hope you like. All the best to you and yours!

So here's some more older stuff. This time a bunch of random shots from The Granny & the Grizzly, my MFA thesis project from a few years ago.
Some are definitely better than others, but here you go.

It's Filler Time!

So, here comes the portion in every young blog's life when it gets the leftovers... the stuff no longer in the portfolio, but still coddled by the artist in a somewhat nice environment. These are, in short, the older pieces moving to the new retirement village. And the staff at this village will have their hands full, because I got a lot of this stuff coming.
This first batch is a bit of VisDev stuff done for a project of several years ago, based on Erik Larson's excellent novel
The Devil in the White City.
They're mainly digital photo collage with a bit o' painting mixed in.
More in a bit!

All right, all right...

After much trial & tribulation, we put up a new version of my portfolio website different from the design below. Although I was pleased with the look of the TV image, it just didn't allow enough space for the actual artwork being displayed.
Oh well.
The art shown is from "The Granny & the Grizzly", my MFA project from a while back.
Be sure to check out the new goodies:

Aside from that, work continues well, new posts are on the way, and I wish anyone who might actually be stopping in here well!

W.I.P. Portfolio Site Layout

Here is the new look for my website. It's still under construction, but the effect is there. Images will be shown, obviously, on the TV screen, with categories (e.g. BGs, Characters, etc.) in the knob section on the right. The little door on the bottom right opens up to show personal and contact info. Should be up soon...

Veev been ekshpektink you...

After much procrastination, here's the beginning of what I hope will be a kick-ass blog.
This is a little piece done over the weekend. The head was drawn in a sketchbook a while back, but I only recently scanned it and worked on it digitally.
Keep coming back for more, more, more!
