Pattinson Batmobile

This was a fun project to work on. I got to see top secret photo’s of “THE BATMAN” (2022) movie car before the film released and then worked with Cryptozoic Entertainment to designed their new “Pattinson Batmobile” collectable… and it has finally made it to pre-order!! You can take a look at it here.

Stephan Ehl did the sensational 3-d sculpt. Stephan and I worked together previously on the Cryptozoic ’66 Batmoble collectable. He is one amazingly talented guy.  

Winterfest

Winter jokes from nine and ten year old kiddos.

Photographic Memory

Bob never missed a beat in any song… he had turtle-recall.

Baaa-d To The Bone

The job I’m currently working on tasks me with drawing a rock band made up of animals and the assignment said the guitar player was to be a sheep that’s “Baaa-d To The Bone” …so I used a band mate of mine from church, Nick Boycott for inspiration. Nick has been known to occasionally break into a wide power stance and shred out a praise song or two for us 🙂

Mr. Fuzzy

Fall has arrived and it felt like time to grab a needle ‘n thread and cobble up a Mr. Fuzzy.

Commissions

I will occasionally take on a commission from an individual person and this is one I did a few years ago. A really great story idea on this one!

The Brightest Thing In The Ocean?

I was searching through my email this morning and ran across this note that one of my publishers forwarded to me. The world would be a better place if we all encouraged each other this way 🙂

Samson

I haven’t done Biblical illustration in quite some time, but a couple of months ago I had the opportunity to do a whole series of illustrations for the story of Samson. It was pretty fun to be drawing Bible characters again!

Ole PumkinHead

So here’s something I think is going to be totally awesome. Rick Cantu is using a picture I did back in 2014 and turning it into a 3-D lighted sculpture. I love it. Ha! The brass tube front legs will be where he runs the wiring to light the head up and the feet, arms and miscellaneous other doodads with be mounted later. I can hardly wait to see this finished pumpkin light!

Camp Cale

Hidden in pine trees behind the outer banks of North Carolina, you’ll find a fabulous little place called Camp Cale. For years there, stories have been told around the campfire of the epic wilderness adventures that Old Joe and his pet squirrel Goldie have had. This year for the first time, campers are actually going to get to see what Old Joe and Goldie look like!

Shoeless

No need for shoes if you can go bear foot.

One For Old Time Sake

I got my start in the “professional” art world by drawing caricatures in amusement parks (you can read about it here) but I don’t really like to do caricatures because there’s too much pressure to capture a resemblance so it’s been a LONG time since I’ve done a caricature of ANYBODY… but it was kinda fun to do this one of a really good guy, Derwin Gray.

Hoggin’ The Biscuit

Sure, the pig was a pretty good stick handler, but no one else ever got a chance to shoot when he was on the ice.. he was a puck hog.

Early Riser

Fun fact… ducks typically get going very early in the day… usually at the quack of dawn.

Stuffed Teddy Bears

It was difficult to sell food at the teddy bear factory because no one was hungry… the teddy bears were already stuffed.
