I Have A New Blog


For multiple multiple reasons. Also, I've had this blog for a couple years. It represents a lot of my growth as a student. There's a lot of terrible stuff on it and art that doesn't look like my art as it stands now. I suppose I'm looking for a more professional blog that showcases what I'm doing now, not where I came from.

Also I am tired of having to constantly sign in and getting kicked off of my gmail account because of the CCAD email and then signing back in on gmail and getting kicked out of blogger.

Yadda, yadda

One day maybe I'll start actually typing out something consequential and meaningfull instead of constantly just dumping jpgs here. But today's not that day. Work is slow, have a wip and some old little things that I tweaked a bit. This is my last seven day work week working two jobs putting up with 9-12 hour days and trying to squeeze some sketching in before bed. Next week I'm down to 5 days a week with two days dedicated solely to art, at least I'm hoping.

Also, I swear I'm working on some four corner illustrations.

Quetzalcoatl Commission

Tattoo design commission for a stellar guy who came across my previous Quetzalcoatl design and wanted something similar. He also requested I color the inks.

I've been slowly putting together a store. Available right now are prints, but very soon there will be handmade sketchbooks, bookmarks, stickers, t-shirts, keychains/charms, and a bunch of other goodies.

Don't forget to stop by my facebook page for some free prints/sketches that I will be giving away in the next few months.

Epic things to come on the Facebook page over the next few months. I'm thinking maybe giveaways, free sketches, free commissions, etc. Should be fun. Hope you're along for the ride.

New Piece

What's better than sea monsters and vikings? Pretty much nothing!
I'd love some crits!
And yes, I'm finally working on something new. Everything I've been messing with in the past three months have been rehashed or finished pieces of really old junk, some sketches over a year old. Here's something new that I started a few days ago.

Have to give Madd props to Maria for her crits on this.

Rough sketch on tracing paper, and some sea monster squiggles! I'm still shaky on the boat in the composition. I can't find reference that I need of a historically accurate viking ship so I may buy a model.

Something Old

My website has been redone. Check it out here. Its pretty image heavy, takes like a second to load. Only thing I can think of that will avert that is dubbing down the quality of the images.

Been Awhile

Trying to get old things out of the way so I can start on new artwork. :D

Crit plz? I'm still unsatisfied with this sea monster.

Website layout

This was recycled from my editorial piece. Mike got the idea of turning it into my website stuck in my head, so I started playing with it with that idea in mind. I'm unsure how to make it work with the rest of the website; the various galleries, thumbnail pages, about section with all that text, the links with all the text. I don't really want to make a little scrolling table. I hate those things. Eh! Ideas would be appreciated. Hmmmm.

Arcade Fire comp

Does anyone know of any good inking pens besides microns, and maybe some brush pens? I heard about rapidographs but I'm not sure if I want to put that much money down right off the bat till I hear what other people think of them.

This was a piece for entrepreneurial that I wasn't able to finish. I'm going to redraw it, change the pose up, and actually put the lighthouse on it. And more fish. Needs more fish. So hey, I guess I'll call this a comp.

Mermaid & Wurm

I was thinking this could be on a tshirt. Or might redraw the pose and submit it to patchtogether.
