Welcome to my daily sketch blog run primarily from my smartphone. I left a corporate job a few years ago to work in comics and on my Art. Follow me, my foibles and triumphs as I do what it takes to improve my skills and make it in the comic book industry. Hey, it's either that or crying myself to sleep and I think I'm too cheery for that ;)

Everyone’s favorite Cimmerian #conanthebarbarian #SavageSwordofConan

Did this pinup for the San Diego Comic-Con souvenir book submission. I went a bit Miami Vice/ 80s pastel for the palette. I did this because usually when you see Conan images, very warm tones are employed. I imagined the scene to happen on a giant outcropping of tourmaline. I had been inspired by crystal’s look on a recent Natural History Museum visit. This is one if my favorite recent pieces I did. It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it!

@RAHeight’s #Midnight Tiger Kickstarter is $388 from 100% Funding! #fanart #pinup

I did a quick sketch the other day for Ray-Anthony Height ‘s MIDNIGHT TIGER #3: End of the Beginning, on Kickstarter and RA wanted to post it on his Kickstarter page. Instead of just a quick doodle, I offered to do a pinup instead. Here’s the sketch layout, the doodle and the finished piece. Click here to support!

You know how I love to mess with the “S” #Superman @DCSuperman

I have loved drawing superheroes almost my entire life. If you follow this blog, you’ve seen me mess around with Superman’s design. This was floating in my head. The S isn’t quite right yet, but I wanted to get down this idea of the chevron design across the shoulder and chest area. It’s a composite of different outfits. I think Superman is a character that should be at the forefront of DC’s storytelling right now because the backstory, the crux of the character, is so within the zeitgeist of what’s happening worldwide.

Swing, Swing, Swing #spiderman

Working out some thoughts. One day, I’m gonna make that dream happen 😉 does Marvel still put out those free books for school kids?

@Pablothegorilla preview & touring info

2019 was personally a great year for me. Retro debuted at the Dances with Films festival. Siren’s Song with Andy Nordvall hit #1 on the Amazon Kindle in science fiction and fantasy illustration. We even broke into the print top 100 of ART! Pablo the Gorilla was funded and delivered on Kickstarter! It even sold out at my local comic shop. They’re on their second helping!

How is 2020 so far? Well, it’s going crazy!

I have 7 conventions on my schedule!

My first one of the year was Long Beach Comic Expo and I’d say it was a rousing success😊

Pablo and I got some shine on KTLA Weekend Morning News live from Long Beach Comic Expo!

Next up is Wondercon in Anaheim. Find me at Artist Alley table B-50 April 10-12th !

Preview of another collab with @brianluesang of @pablothegorilla & #GodloreComic

Why yes, that is a sword wielding Pablo the gorilla!

So much happening… @MikeKorpi

Hi friends! Long time no see! Let’s start with the fact I just finished a comic submission with my friend Mike Korpi and it’ll be part of bigger anthology that you won’t want to miss. I’ll fill you in soon!

Here’s the start of my next project- also with Mike! Well, I actually started awhile back but I’m drawing character concepts right now.

Can you believe January is almost over?! Yikes

What are people saying about @Pablothegorilla?

REVIEW : Pablo the Gorilla #1

To those who have been following the blog since the beginning, thank you. As this year winds down, I’m finishing work on some projects and starting on others.

Can you believe the year that happened? I’ve been very fortunate in these trying times to find a little shine and it’s thanks to everyone for the support.

Andy Nordvall & I saw our Inktober 2017 project, Siren’s Song, go #1 on Amazon Kindle and break into the top 100 in print for Sci-fi and fantasy art books. We beat out Star Wars & Legend of Zelda. We were in the Art top 100 with Basquiat. If you supported, be sure to leave a review!

Aaron Lindenthaler & I saw our short film Retro debut on the big screen as an official Dances with Films selection. The premiere was at TCL Chinese Theatres in Hollywood, California! How bonkers is that?

Can’t forget that Pablo the Gorilla came to fruition! Thanks to everyone who joined Team Pablo to see this comic through! I’m so happy and proud to have fulfilled this campaign. How insane is it to see a Dustin Nguyen variant cover too!

Starting off the new year will be an appearance at Long Beach Comic Expo. Pablo will start making the rounds at conventions this year as he got a late start at Los Angeles Comic Con. Remember, I’ll be sharing not only my schedule but Dustin’s coinciding ones too; so, be sure to grab a copy of his variant, get it autographed & thank him for supporting indie projects!

Check out this crazy con schedule for 2020!

Just because #themandolorian #naruto #narutoshippuden #babyyoda #Mondaymashup

Akats-yoda, anyone?

@brianluesang has a #crowdfund campaign on @indiegogo & needs your help! I did this piece & he’ll be inking it for his book Godlore vol.2 #collab

Check out Godlore Vol.2 on indiegogo! Brian will be inking this piece and I’m sure he’ll kill it. He successfully funded volume 1 on Kickstarter and needs your help to see this project through.
