Holy Cow!

This is a sketch I did a year or so ago that I always meant to go back and finish. That hasn’t happened yet, but maybe someday…

Here’s To Yew

…just throwing up a different picture to let everyone know I’m still alive…

The Weaselopolis Juggernaut Tribune

A high school kid was looking through my sketchbook the other day, got to the last page of it, looked up at me and said, “man, there’s some pretty, uhm… weird stuff in there”, and I said, “yup, kinda scary isn’t it?”

I cannot sit and do art for eight solid hours, so I take occasional breaks during the day and play an online game called Ikariam. Ikariam is a Risk game on steroids. Based on ancient Greece, you build your own little civilization, pillage other peoples stuff, and work with others to keep from getting pillaged. I have met people from all over the world playing this game.

Over the course of this last year, Ikariam has inspired a lot of the artwork that I’ve posted on my blog. I’m in the process of taking that art and turning it into a daily paper for the folks I play the game with. I’m creating a mythology of my pretend city on…

The Weaselopolis Juggernaut Tribune.

…uhm, yep, kinda weird, right? Hey, I say the weirder the better! You might enjoy following along and seeing how I “repurpose” a bunch of last years blog art into this brand new… uhm… blog newspaper thing…

Creatives can find inspiration in some odd places.

A Tutorial For Jeff

My buddy Jeff just got a Wacom Tablet and asked me for a few pointers on digital painting. Jeff was my youngest sons hockey coach when we lived in Texas, and fearing a vicious cross check from him if I didn’t comply, here is a little tutorial…

…well, it’s not so much a tutorial as it is me rambling on and on, trying to string several words together in hopes they will somehow form complete sentences.

My Sunday Sermon Notes 03/28/10

Contrary to popular belief, I do diligently take notes during Sunday sermons as you can see here…

Goofy Joke Pictures

My favorite kind of  job is drawing a goofy picture for a goofy children’s joke. What did the rooster say when he got into the very hot shower?

HOT-a-doodle-DOO!

Life Is Tough

There’s an old John Wayne movie called Sands Of Iwo Jima where Sgt. Stryker says, ”…life is tough, but it’s tougher if you’re stupid”. I kinda like that…

Periodic Table

There must be nothing more exciting than to discover yourself in the Periodic Table Of Elephants

Giant Slayer

Tough Old Cowboy

A tough old cowboy told his grandson that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a pinch of gun powder on his oatmeal every morning.

The grandson did this religiously to the age of 103. When he died, he left 14 children, 30 grand-children, 45 great-grandchildren, 25 great-great grandchildren, and a 15 foot hole where the crematorium used to be.

Rohan Pulling Guard

Grimwood of Rohan had studied all the Saruman game film and was ready for Super Bowl Sunday…

What we have here is your basic one eyed, peg legged pirate possum selling fake Rolex watches to unsuspecting tourists…

Frazetta Tribute

I was a freshman in college when I first discovered the artwork of Frank Frazetta. I immediately tried to imitate it (as if that could ever happen) and quickly discovered there would only be one Frazetta.

The other day I decided to put my spin on one of my favorite Frazetta pieces, “The Silver Warrior”. I wasn’t trying to copy it per say, just doing my take on it.
