Old West Book Series

I’ve been super busy this year working on a really fun project. I can’t say too much about it because it has not gone to press yet, but in a nutshell, I’m cranking out a series of westerns as fast as I can… and… Continue Reading “Old West Book Series”

Parking Issues

This guy is desperately trying to get back to his spaceship before the parking meteor runs out. Another iPad/Procreate/sketchbook page.

Spaceman

Day three of dumping Procreate sketches onto this site. Here’s a spaceman… and you know what ya gotta do when you see a spaceman… ya gotta park in it, man!

Outa Control

My social media is totally out of control. I’ve got some things posted here, I’ve got other things posted there, I’ve got some internet sites with absolutely nothing on them… probably not the best game plan for your “internet presence” so I’m going to… Continue Reading “Outa Control”

More Sermon Notes

The other day at church the pastor was trying to explain that the Greek word for hate has a couple of different meanings. One is that you just kinda don’t like something… the other meaning is that full blown super dislike you have for… Continue Reading “More Sermon Notes”

Importing Images Into Procreate

I’m old school when it comes to drawing. I still enjoy using a pencil and paper, but I love to apply color digitally. I’ve been posting 30 second videos on Instagram lately of some quick color sketchbook stuff I’ve been doing with the Procreate… Continue Reading “Importing Images Into Procreate”

Experimenting With A Post

Since I’m currently trapped inside my house because of the weather, I thought I would experiment with making a blog post using my iPad instead of my computer, so here we go… I’ve recently been doing a lot of painting on my iPad using… Continue Reading “Experimenting With A Post”

Barnabas

I scribbled this guy out last Saturday as I was waiting for the football games to start. He’s one of my favorite characters from the game AC-Odyssey, Barnabas the sailor man. I still had time to kill, so I added some color and a… Continue Reading “Barnabas”

Elder Scrolls Online

I play a game called Elder Scrolls Online where I occasionally have to save the world from infestations of dragons, monsters and various other unsavory creatures. One of the things I like about the game is it allows you to construct your own custom… Continue Reading “Elder Scrolls Online”

SketchBook Cowboy

Super busy right now. A quick color study from my sketchbook. I’m currently in rigorous training for the Tour De Donut… which basically means I’m on a first name basis with the folks at the local donut shop.

Brand New Old Stuff!

In 2011, I got an INSTAGRAM account, but never really used it because it was a “phone-only” app and extremely difficult to post artwork with, but I just discovered a workaround and now I can post artwork directly to Instagram from my computer. Now… Continue Reading “Brand New Old Stuff!”

Cataract Surgery

I just had cataract surgery on both eyes, so to give them a trial run I whipped up a creepy little leprechaun in honor of this weekends Notre Dame – Ball State football game. I live about an hour away from both schools, so… Continue Reading “Cataract Surgery”

Painting Ms. Dorothy

I was working on a “LIZARD OF OZ” job and whenever there is high concept involved I have to do a LOT of fast, throwaway sketches to figure things out. Most of these quick ideas never see the light of day… but there was… Continue Reading “Painting Ms. Dorothy”

Top Secret New Project!

I just met with a talented group of creatives in their Arkansas studios and I’m excited to announce that we’ve come up with a brand new comic book project! It’s top secret, but I’ve been given permission to share some of the notes from our… Continue Reading “Top Secret New Project!”

CockRoachZilla

Back in May I did character design and concept work for another Clarks Pest Control commercial. This time a giant cockroach invades the city and he’s way too much for the army to handle… better call Clark! I love the way Clayt Ratzlaff  breathes life into my little two dimensional pictures.
