Swamp creature fella









A concept based off of the Black Lagoon creature, rough design in PS and prototyped in Zbrush. Sad to admit I've never watched the movie though, what a great old horror monster - so weird!

If anything in life is certain, if history has taught humankind anything, it is that you should never, ever mess with a clown.

The Regiment


A character concept for a game idea Backstory. Basically it's about a Regiment stranded on some lost farout planet. More gritty old school sci-fi ( not post-apocalyptic). The stranded regiment would have to explore the planet to learn/cultivate the local flora & fauna for survival. Each character would battle the internal psychological stresses that come with being stranded & how you play would determine the relationships within the Regiment. Sort of like Survivorman meets the Wrath of Khan meets Land of the Lost. Maybe there are aliens? Maybe there is absolutely nothing? Maybe there are God-like amorphic blobs on the other side? Perhaps the Regiment will have to resort to cannibalism? Who knows...

No Way Out





I remember watching Night of the Living Dead when I was a kid and being absolutely terrified and fascinated by the movie. I was pretty stoked when I found The Walking Dead comic and
thought the AMC series did a pretty good job. Some serious crap goes down in the comics so it will be interesting to see how they approach that. This Rick Grimes is a little further down the narrative trail, with his chopped off hand etc...although I made him a little older and tougher perhaps...anyways, maybe I'll try doing a Zombie next...

Sullivan T. Dog


small acrylic painting of the ol' pooch. Pretty rough. 3hrs. I like oils way more but they are so toxic. It's snowing bad here so i was able to do this in my living room without the smell but I never think acrylics look as good...

Night of the Hunter


Just a quickfast tonal study. Did you know that Robert Mitchum was placed on a chain gang when he was 14? Words fail me to describe how cool this guy was...

Jungle Exotica

-Another poster for a Chaz Royal burlesque event that took place a little while ago. I wasn't really happy with how this one turned out, the layout is a lot more simple (boring) than my previous poster and the style is a little more comic-booky.

Alpha & Omega


Jared Deal is curating a group art show called "Shady Characters" in Brooklyn NYC. It's on July 28th at the " Live with Animals" Gallery. You can check out his blog for more info, ( I'm sure most of you already have ) - if not you can link to him on the left. There is a whole schwak of wicked artists taking part in this show....some real pro's...

I went with more of a theological route with " Alpha & Omega ". These two ladies are about as shady as you can get. The unanswerable questions of who started what and when its gonna end, and where the end is and when the beginning began is all a cloudy, uncertain, shady mess isn't it? The concepts of good and evil and the choices we make daily for an uncertain end, and perhaps an even more uncertain beginning elsewhere?

I tried to go as non digital as I could, so it's going to be a dual piece. One framed image of my original sketch on butcher paper, with an additional framed image of a really nice print on watercolor paper from an offset printer. A nice old school ink print done by some big shaky loud toxic metal machine! YO!!

Above is a black color seperation for the printing machine. OG art and the final Offset print can be see at the show! Check it out if you can!

15 Minutes of Fame


This little fella was done a little while ago. Several different versions of the same design..... I thought the middle one in the top row would have been a winner because it reminded me of a young Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber with the gap tooth and salad bowl haircut. Alas, looks like I was wrong... the client i did this for decided to go with something else entirely.... Looks like the ol' blog is going to be this feller's only fifteen minutes of fame.

Munnies



Here is a Munny I did for the "Show Us Your Munny" show at Voltage on Main Street last week. Its amateur-ish compared to the rest of them but I'm looking forward to doing another one at thier Halloween show. Thanks to Christian and Erica for letting me be part of it! Check out the rest of the wicked Munnies at the Voltage website...they are all for sale remember and nothing says "I love you" like a custom Munny to give to your Mommy on her birthday or other applicable holiday... check out Pats, his had a little accident.

Burlesque poster


I did this poster for a Burlesque show here in Vancouver. Chaz Royal, who is a promoter for Burlesque events, is doing a benefit show for Warchild Canada. Not a bad way to raise money for charity I say...count me in for a few dollars...

Family Iron





A twelve page pitchpack for Family Iron has just been finished, and its en route to a few places like MTV, Spike, and Fox, the comedy network.... Here is a little collected artwork from the pack. The sales window is a little narrow for an adult show like this, but the whole thing came out of just fooling around and having fun so it's a shot in the dark. We'll see what happens..at any rate I'm most likely going to do an animated promo ( when I can scrounge time) and just continue having fun with it. I got a lot of help from some friends like Adam Wood and Naomi Janzen, who helped me out with some of the writing, and also some great BG design from my talented pal Pat Pakula. Thanks guys and stay gold

Green toxic cloud

HEY LOOK!! It's a sketch....and then you can see the sketch all cleaned up!!! This design is from the Origin story of Doc Ferocious. The green cloud behind him could be for design purposes or it could be a toxic cloud of flatulence. Or it could be a cosmic portal. Or maybe a floating alien amoeba. Or it could be...er...never mind.

CEREAL KILLERS!!

This is an illustration I did for a book called " Cereal Killers" that Von Kreep from 1313 Midnight Creepshow is putting together. I was super fortunate to be asked to do something for it - because it's gonna be a killer book with other illustrations by Jay Stephens, Eddie Mort, Lilli Chin ( and also fellow comrades Garnet and Ridd) ..... keep an eye out for it in the near future and when i find more info about the date of realease i'll post it! Thanks Von Kreep!

More character sheeeet

This is from the same show that I posted previously with the geeky looking guy with the striped shirt squirting milk out of his nose. It was some show about magic. A little while ago I was contacted to do a whole schwak of these guys under super crazy time constraints. One of those situations where some guy wants lineup and pose sheets for six different characters that you have to design as well, all to be finished and cleaned up for the next day. Then you got to stay up till six in the morning pumping out crap like this and drawing horrible hands....then you throw up in your mouth a little....some of it may or may not roll down your chin....

FLOPPY FISH AND SOGGY WEINER

Another ultra quick post. These are a few panels from a storyboard I just finished. This gag has a guy lifting his hat off to reveal a fish floopin around! If that wasn't hilarious enough for you, just notice the pan downwards to reveal some kid with a soggy sandwich with a weiner on top. Comedic genius or cartoon cliche'? I'll let you be the judge....

Some character sheeeet

A character design with poses for some show that went nowhere. It was rushed and I drew horrible hands on it, among other things. I am really busy so I scrounged desperately for a quick post. Once I catch up with my work I'll post more which will be in the next few days....
