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!”

Ecto One

Ghostbuster Ecto One concept art I did for the folks at Cryptozoic a while back. Squashing a mile long 1959 Cadillac ambulance limo down into a cartoon compact size was a challenge to say the least. The preliminary 3-d renders are by the amazing Stephan… Continue Reading “Ecto One”

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!”

Coin Flip

I threw a little color onto a referee that was in my sketchbook.

1966 Batmobile Collectable Statue

This was a fun project I worked on a few months ago. The good folks at Cryptozoic saw a picture I did of my very first car (a 1970 Opel Kadette) and asked me to do the same sort of thing with the old 1966 Batmobile from… Continue Reading “1966 Batmobile Collectable Statue”

you want me to do WHAT??

I don’t often get asked to do background scenery… well… to put it another way… I have NEVER been asked to do background scenery, so I was pretty nervous when I was tasked with developing six backgrounds for a quirky board game, tight focus, pan through film shot…… Continue Reading “you want me to do WHAT??”

Snow In The Forecast

We’ve gotten by pretty easily this winter here in Northeastern Indiana, but with snow in the forecast I think it’s time to settle down in front of the fireplace, turn on the NFL playoff games, open the garage door, crank up the Snowbot and tell it to… Continue Reading “Snow In The Forecast”

Playing Some Weird iPad Football

I’ve been playing a quirky little turn-based strategy game on my iPad that pits teams of dwarves, elves, rats, and miscellaneous unidentifiable creatures against one another on a football field. One of the neat things about the game is the ability to customize your team and my… Continue Reading “Playing Some Weird iPad Football”

1970 Opel Kadett

My very first car was a pale yellow, 1970 Opel Kadett… basically a tin can with custom installed Cherry Bomb mufflers. It’s best feature was a gigantic, state of the art, AM-FM/8 Track/Cassette stereo that cranked out more horsepower than the poor little 4-cylinder engine ever did. Sadly,… Continue Reading “1970 Opel Kadett”

Summer Grilling

Another snippet from the book I’ve been illustrating. I finished the art, sent everything in to the publisher and the book is due to be printed and available sometime this fall.

Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus 2

Over the years, I have purchased several types of styluses in a futile attempt to turn my Ipad into a fabulous, portable, mini Wacom Cintiq. I have finally come to the conclusion, (sadly)… that’s just never going to happen… but Wacom is making the Ipad… Continue Reading “Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus 2”

Doodle United Drawing Club

I belong to one of those internet drawing clubs… you know… the kind where a drawing challenge is assigned every couple of weeks and you try to do something really clever with it. A few challenges back we were assigned “pumpkins” and while the… Continue Reading “Doodle United Drawing Club”

Guardians Of The Galaxy

I still have not seen Guardians Of The Galaxy, but it’s on my “to do” list… I have it written in right under “make varsity football team”…

Digital Painting Class This Fall

I was recently asked to teach a digital painting class this fall at Huntington University. I have agreed to do this and I’m looking forward to sharing what I know on the subject. Being able to take the idea in your head, put it… Continue Reading “Digital Painting Class This Fall”

Today Is May 4th

Today is May Fourth, so for all the Star Wars fans out there… MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU.
