My Work

Here are a few projects (new and old) that you may like to know about.

  • Patty And The Stump

    During the 2016 election cycle, when the RNC found itself in Cleveland, I was working on a fun children’s book that had an allegorical bent to it.  “Patty and The Stump” was written by Spike Manton and Tim Clue and is available for sale on Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle format. Can you figure […]

  • Silly Rhymes For Belligerent Children

    Trace Beaulieu (MST3K/Cinematic Titanic) literally tapped me on the shoulder and asked me if I wanted to work on a book with him.  Being a card carrying member of the MST3K fan club, I couldn’t resist.  The result was this wonderfully creepy tome with nods to Dr. Suess, Shel Silverstein, Tim Burton and more.

  • Geek a Week

    Geek A Week was a one year art challenge started in March 2010 to attempt to connect with 52 influential geeks from different disciplines (art, movies, TV, computing, science). A trading card portrait complete with stats was created each week for the featured geek.  By actually connecting with each geek, it completed the requirements for the […]

  • Monster by Mail

    In 2007, I started drawing and selling monster drawings to pay for the birth of my daughter.  I sold over 700 monsters for people all over the world and have created a ton more speed drawing videos of the process.  I still draw monsters if anyone wants them. I also have brought guest artists to […]

November 14, 2016

If you were at #Blizzcon earlier this month, you probably ran into two Murlocs handing out papers for the new Hearthstone expansion. Those two Murlocs were created by my CreatureGeek co-host, Frank Ippolito. Frank and his crew did all the heavy lifting on the project, but he asked me early on in the process to do some concept sketching for the Murlocs. This went from initial design to costuming to how the suits would actually work. They actually used some of my ideas in the final construct. You can see a pretty comprehensive video of how Frank and his team assembled the final Murlocs at Tested.

They turned out fantastic and I’m happy I was able to work on them in some small way. Let me know what you think!

This was a cover for the Adult Coloring Book I worked on that is not going to be used.  I really liked it, but the feedback was that it looked “too professional” I get that.  Still a great cover though.  Get the coloring book (with the new cover)  here.

July 26, 2016

Here are the first images from an allegorical tale I am currently working on loosely based on Trump called “Patty and The Stump” by Tim Clue and Spike Manton. Trump of course, is the Stump. I’m pulling a lot of influence from Berke Breathed on these images. His pseudo-political cartoons from the 80s were a part of me growing up and his work influenced me greatly. I hope that shows through. It’s a fun little story, not TOO overtly political and hopefully will be out pre-election.

July 16, 2016

In case you weren’t aware, The New Ghostbusters came out. I’m heading out to see it this weekend, along with a lot of other folks.  But I’ll be watching extra close because last February, I was hired to do some concept sketches for the movie!  I was among a dozen or so artists who was hired by Rick Lazzarini from amazing FX house The Character Shop to flesh out some concepts for the creative team.  Rick has been posting a lot of other concept art from that session and comparatively, my stuff looks really bush league.  However I am proud to say that I believe I was the only artist in the group who provided some early concepts for the proton packs and traps.  I always felt that the traps in the original movie, while iconic, needed to have windows to see if the trap was full or not.  To me, the flashing light left too much open to failure.  Actually seeing the entity in the trap so you knew not to release it was important.

I’m not sure they incorporated my idea into the final design.  They did re-design the traps to look more canister-like.  But at the very least, I brought something new and interesting to the table.

It was a real dream come true and I hope to do more of it in the future. I’ve been dying to share my work for more than a year now, so I’m super excited to have you all see it!  If there are any big Hollywood types out there who would like to employ my artistic services on their next film, hit me up!  I’m open, yo!
