Rincon is a gaming convention being put on by S.A.G.A (Southern Arizona Gaming Association.) on the 28th of this month.

It also happens to be one of my favorite places to go surfing in southern California.

At any rate, earlier this year I illustrated their new mascot...I'd forgotten I hadn't posted it yet.

So I drug out another personal project I had started but didn't have time to finish due to actual work; and finished it. I'm not going to explain much about it other than it is set in an post apocalyptic wasteland...mainly because I'm tired...

The Shadow Knows...

Who knows what evil lies in the hearts of men?

The Shadow knows.

While I was in my tweens my mother had bought my father a large collectors pack of old radio dramas for Christmas. Amongst the various serials was probably one of my favorite story lines to date, "The Shadow."

Wealthy man-about-town Lamont Cranston (no. not the guy from Breaking Bad...did you know there was a band named 'lamont cranston?" Crazy.) was really, in fact, a supernatural crime fighter. Ok. So an insanely wealthy, dashing, SANE, guy who has mental abilities that allow himself to move objects and render himself invisible...essentially a rich jedi who can date without whining like a little mama's boy?? Yes please, I want to be him.

This was initially started as a submission to enter a pulp fiction based art exhibit, but deadlines with actual jobs kept me from meeting that deadline... I started it close to six months ago and finally made the time to complete it. I really, really like this one. Please Enjoy.

I vant to suck your...MONEY OUT OF YOUR WALLET!!!


That's much scarier to me than someone wanting my blood. I've got plenty of scars on my arms where phlebotavampires have stuck's not nearly as bad.

At any rate, another cover for an old classic. Dracula! The first version I produced wasn't scary enough or pale enough for the publisher so I did a revision on it...and frankly, I'm glad they requested it.

The first one looked great!...that is, until I painted the second then looked at the two side-by-side...

Now the first just looks like a goofy, retarded, not-close-to-being-scary version of the second. Kind of like the difference between Edward Cullen and an actual vampire. Ah well. such is life.
I also threw in the hands which were the same before and after. I like hands.

I could make the joke that the original is with makeup...and the second without. But I won't.

...though I kind of just did....and it was horribly cheesy. But who cares right? No one reads this crappy blog anyway! WOOHOO!! Have a great day folks!

This is the second book cover I've done for the Malachite Quills Publishing company...and it didn't turn out half bad...

Little Sketches

I've got a small notepad I carry with me on Sundays that I do little sketches in. Nothing major here...just a few little guys. Most of these are pretty old too, I found some I'd scanned a while ago and figured I'd post them up. What's cool about digging up old sketches like these is that they're much like little journal entries...a mere glance at one conjures up where I was at, who I was with, how I was feeling at the time...The memories conjured up are fairly vivid as well, almost as evocative as coming across a nostalgic scent. I wonder why it's these little sketches that cause that within me, and other, more finished, drawings I dust off I can hardly remember ever working on. Odd.

Oh. A friend and I are starting a podcast soon....

The Darkling!!!

So some of you may remember this post...

It's my first foray away from film and television in a long while. It is finally out for the Kindle and the Nook! Go buy a copy!! You won't reget it...

Unlike that one night I had in San Philippe last summer...which is why I am now scared to death of eggplants and rubbing alcohol.

The spearman

So I've been working on developing a style for a graphic novel, and I don't know about you, but I'm really tired of the mainstream slick inking and shiny photoshopped color that permeates mainstream comics today. Not that there is anything wrong with it; it takes great skill to be able to put something together like that...unlike some other illustration styles...

If it weren't so prevalent and was the exception rather than the norm, I'd probably gobble it up.

I'm fickle, what can I say?

I like my comics to have some grit. So in that vein I decided to try black and white watercolor, which I can burn through like nobody's business, and color it digitally...which is also fairly quick to do.

So the first is the original black and white. The second and third, obviously, are the color...Unless you're colorblind...then you're probably glad I pointed out which is which...

yes...I use a lot of these...

Mysterious painting

So...I did a painting for a client...but I'm not going to give details about it yet...
