Ol’ #6: A Past Future In The Present

Ol’ #6: A Past Future In The Present

Recently I had the good fortune to paint the cover of Steampunk Tales #6. It so much fun to work in a genre that I really dig. I like to describe Steampunk Tales as a ‘Digi-pulp.’ They are really taking a great format that has propelled so many story tellers and illustrators forward from theContinue Reading

Illustration Friday: Muddy

Illustration Friday: Muddy

This topic put me in mind of “the Big Muddy Mississippi”, the Blues Man, Muddy Waters, both of which put me in the mind of the “Delta Blues.” In response to these, I put down this free hand watercolor in about an hour. Quick and loose, I used as muddy of a pallet as possible.Continue Reading

It Figures…

It’s all free hand, so it is what it is.¬† I’ve had some recent inspiration reading the July issue of Imagine FX magazine, especially the Justin Gerard article. I reallyContinue Reading

One can never tell where things are going to go next! A friend of mine has a mother whose something of an entrepreneur. We were introduced to each other last year and she hired me to do some simple story boards for a PSA for her company No Kiddin’ Condoms. This year, she was onContinue Reading

Steam-punk Wizard of Oz

Steam-punk Wizard of Oz

One of the projects for the Illustration Master Class in Amherst MA was to create a cover image for a steam-punk retelling of the classic “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” Conceptually this combination of two worlds is ripe with possibilities. It is an area that I hope to mine for a few more pieces. TheContinue Reading

Comic Book Gold

Comic Book Gold

This newest project is turning out to be quite a lot of fun. Recently I was approached by a company (who’s name will be revealed at a later post) to do some faux comic book covers. They had a series of seven specific characters in mind from the start and have given me a roughContinue Reading
