Well, Everybody...
Exciting news!
I've put up a brand spanking new Website / Portfolio!
Here is a taste:

Go have a poke around and get familiar with it... there will be a quiz.

Anywho... now for the sad news... I'm not going to be updating this blog anymore.

I know.. I know... it was a tough decision to make. I'll keep it up so you can still come here and look around for the sake of nostalgia. However... in it's place I have uploaded all my old blog posts to my new blog! located on my website. So, you can still get your regular dose of insanity.
Plus... you can also follow me on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook. So... yeah. It's been good times.

Turtle Warrior In The Rain

It was raining today.
I love listening to the rain tap on my window as I work. Sometimes I toy with the idea of moving to a city where it rains a lot. Like, maybe Seattle. Maybe I would run into Fraiser. If you know of any other rainy cities... let me know.

Anyway... I did this warm up of an anthropomorphic Turtle Warrior climbing a mountain in the rain. It's always fun combining animals and fantasy... always.

Blooper Ninja

I started drawing Blooper from Super Mario Bros. (ya know, the little white squid guy who squirts ink)
for the More Tentacles blog.

But as I was sketching I couldn't resist making it into a ninja mask.

So... Blooper Ninja... with a bottle of ink.

... yes it is weird. Did you really expect anything different?

Man, I just started wondering if it's all squishy in there?

Finished Percival Pundragon Cover (w/ text and title)

Here is the finalized cover for The Legend of Percival Pundragon: Chapter 1 - The Mushroom Prophesy

Things are coming along and I hope to have the Kickstarter campaign up soon.

On a side note... I played Hero Quest with my two boys (7 and 5 yrs old) last night. That was hilariously fun. They really got into it and started theorizing and strategizing.

Space Babies Are Out There

Behold... something completely messed up and weird... which is something I never do...

anyway... I call this piece "Luring The Space Baby"
I did it for the More Tentacles art blog. Go check it out and submit something!

I am also Pleased to announce that this bad boy is available as a 13" x 6.5" print on my store
Go here to purchase it. Couldn't you see this hanging up in your office, you hallway, or even better yet... the babies room!

And here is a nice close up of that adorable baby.

And... if you want some music to listen to as you contemplate the vast meaning of this fine piece of art work... check out Jim Guthrie's awesome song, Ballad of the Space Babies from the Sword and Sworcery soundtrack.

Cute Little Wolverine... the X-men kind.

yep... after doing the cutsie Ninja Turtles I couldn't resist doing Wolverine in similar fashion...

... speaking of fashion, for such a tough guy, yellow and blue is a rather pansy color choice, not to mention the blue undies (even though I did).

Anyways... watch yourselves, and The X-men are cool.

Some Line Art for a new Percival piece.

Here is a work in progress piece for The Legend of Percival Pundragon.

This piece features the first actual view of King Tortle! the main antagonist of the story. Don't he look mean. Wait... he reminds you of somebody? I hope so.

This was a fun piece to work on. I always love drawing people in peril. That could be a whole series... "people in peril". I'll look into that.

Anyway... I'll post the color version in the near future.... stay posted as I post postings.

oh, and you should go read the story so far: on Facebook or Comic Fury.

Tentacle Time... in your face

Here's an ink Drawing I done did for the MORE TENTACLES BLOG!!!!

Yes... that was in your face... but it's in his as well.

I don't often do Sci-fi pieces. Typically fantasy creatures and characters come out of my brain more readily.

Eat it fantasy... sic-fi is serving lunch today!

... after thinking it over just now, Having some tentacle creature stuck to your face would be terrifying. Not too bad if you had a helmet on... but without one? It would be like drowning in a sea of Bologna... yuck.

ink Doodle of Newt!

Doodle of the character Newt from my comic: The Legend of Percival Pundragon.

I did this one with a blue mechanical pencil, Micron 05 pigma pen, and a Pitt Cold Grey III Brush Pen.

This just screams for me to animate him running. Maybe someday I'll get a round to it.

Thank you Jake for a delicious bit of art.

More Tentacles piece - H.P. Miyazaki

Here is a piece for the More Tentacles Community Art Blog!

it's kind of what would happen if you put Hayao Miyazaki and H.P. Lovecraft in a blender.
...and yes, it is a little disturbing.

I must say that Miyazaki makes fantastic movies! and H.P. Lovecraft writes completely insane stories!

and then, here's the original ink drawing i did.

Gnomes for Norma

Well... Here is a commissioned piece I just finished.

So... Norma, this one is for you. Let me know what you think.

Tentacles and Video Games!

I have two treats for you today!

First... is a piece for the More Tentacles Blog.
I called it   First Incision.
For some reason I couldn't stop singing the Cat Stevens song (covered by Sheryl Crow) First Cut Is The Deepest... go figure.

The second piece is for The Legend of Percival Pundragon (my independent comic). A character illustration of Percy and his shroomling guide Newt.
You can read the ludicrous adventures of Percival and Newt in two different places:

Enjoy... Gratsi

Steam-punk Pinocchio Ballet!

Thought I'd share the latest bit of Client work I did.

This was for the same client I did the Oz Ballet poster for.
Definitely a fun piece to work on.
I always enjoy doing something dark and gritty with plenty of texture and wear and tear.
And I must say... Steam-Punk Pinocchio Ballet sounds quite interesting. Quite.

I'll post the completed version with text and everything at a later date.

one more thing... PAGE 9! is up of the Percival Pundragon Comic. Go Check it out on the
Facebook page
or Comic Fury page.

Percival Pundragon Page 8!

Page 8 is up for reading!  ... and yes... I do think you should go read it.

Read it on The Facebook Page or The Comic Fury Page, whatever floats your banana boat.

I've been really enjoying making this comic... It let's me do what I love: Tell a ludicrous story full of corny jokes and puns, make comments of popular culture and media, draw outrageous creatures and characters, and just plain enjoy being weird and geeky.

anyway... if this guy doesn't convince you to go read it... than I may have to send Mr. T. over to your home for a little personal persuasion.

Ninja Turtles! with a Print!

yep... I thought it was time to do another Ninja Turtle piece. Enough of my comic... for today anyway.
Two versions... the popular version with different colored masks that I'm sure most people would be used to, and a second for the die-hard comic fans. Yep... in the comics the masks are all red.

Prints are even available of these pieces at MY STORE

Percival Pundragon Cover WIP... and page 5!

Here's the finished line drawing for the cover of The Legend of Percival Pundragon, chapter 1.

This was really fun to show a few of the different characters and creatures in one illustration. I also wanted to hint a little more at the video-game influence of the comic book (He's pulling a "Link" with that wooden sword for those not familiar with Zelda)

Right now the first 5 pages are up for reading.... for free!

Percival Pundragon is now on Facebook!

Percival Pundragon is now on Facebook!

Percival Pundragon is the story of a boy already living in a fantastical world, who is thrown into an even more fantastical and strange world. The story is full of references to old video games, roleplaying games, movies, music, geek-culture, and anything that tickled my fancy at the time of writing. Let's be honest though... it is really just an excuse for me to be a goober and draw weird creatures, characters, and situations.

I'll be uploading a page a week from Chapter 1 of the book. Speaking of which...

Page 4 is now online for reading! you can read it on the comic site (<<< by clicking on that there link) on on the Facebook page (<<< click on that link) in the "Chapter 1" photo album.

Avast Me!

I like Pirates...
I think most Halloweens as a child consisted of me dressing up as a pirate.... yeah, I mean yar.

This is for the More Tentacles Blog.

Percival Pundragon Promo Post

I tried to put as many "P" words in the post title as I could. Yeah... I was stumped after 4... pathetic.

So's anyway, I've been working on a project for a while now and it is about ready to be unleashed on the public.

I'll show more as zero hour comes closer.

I'm perma-stoked about it. (Thanks Elder Robertson for teaching the term "perma-stoked")

Keep checking the blog for more info.

Day of the tentacle... Retro time

Growing up I had a friend named Jason.  He was my computer game friend.

Playing with him usually went like this...

I'd come over to his house

He'd open the door and say "hey" or something similar

Without a word we would then walk down to his basement (possibly stop in the kitchen for a snack on the way)

We would then both sit down and play the computer game that had been tickling our fancy for the past few days.

I remember it started with floppy disc games like Summer Olympics and then moved on to more sophisticated games like Lode Runner.

Later though... our bread and butter became the awesome cartoon style story adventures like Monkey Island, Sam and Max, and the above little gem Day of the Tentacle

yeah... we wasted a lot of time.

I do think we played air hockey once.

Anyway this piece was done for the tentacle blog.
