First transparency test completed. Printed Mysterio and the smoke out on two different transparencies and then layered them on top of each other.
I’ll be perfecting and experimenting with this hopefully to produce some really nice original framed work.

Wow.
I recently backed Ryan Andrew’s kickstarter for his comic anthology, Nothing Is Forgotten. One of the rewards I received was a personal sketch. I asked him to draw Blue, the main character of my graphic novel My Hero. I received his book today along with a nice note and this wonderful drawing. Words cannot describe the excitement and giddiness of seeing my own creation drawn by one of my favorite artists.
If you don’t know who Ryan Andrews is, check out his work at the link above!
Thanks again Ryan!

Red Bulborb
Pikmin has been one of my favorite game series of all time. I always get so excited when I find neat little areas in nature and think to myself, “This would make an awesome pikmin stage.” So I thought it would be interesting to have the creatures from the pikmin planet pinned and mounted. As you would find them in some insect collection.
Is this something you guys would want to see more of? Or should I just leave it at the infamous Red Bulborb? Lemme know!
And if you like what you see and you wanna see more, follow me!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

My four character portraits for characters from the recent Spider-Man movie. Wanting to capture the stark differences between the characters and their alter-egos, I created two images for both and allowed them to transition between each other.

You can get a better look at the individual portraits on my blog!

Process!

Just in case anyone was wondering what steps I go through to get to my finished piece.

1.) Loose sketch of the character.

2.) Trace over the sketch with a variety of pens.

3.) Layer in my base colors in photoshop.

4.) Fully render the piece.

"My Hero"

pages 6-17

When I was younger I filled up one of my favorite action figure with maggots, and then out of disgust, flushed it down the toilet. That bizarre incident is essentially what sparked “My Hero” into existence. Following my passion for story telling and love for comics, I decided to focus my efforts to write and illustrate a graphic novel.

I had one goal in mind when beginning this project: I wanted to create something I would love when I was younger. Using my action figure/toilet memory as a springboard I jumped headfirst into exploring what happened after he was flushed down the toilet. Ideas and characters I wanted to create overwhelmed me. I wanted to not only tell an interesting story but also allow it to preach the underlying message of hope. Hope has had a big part in my life and I wanted to reflect that theme in my book. The worm particularly is the representation of that idea. I based the worm and toy after my sister and I. She’s the biggest inspiration in my life and gives me hope every single day. We all need someone like her in our lives, and I wanted to emphasize that with the relationship between the toy and the worm.

Mysterio
"Mysterio? I think I had a bowl of Mysterios for breakfast." 
One of my all time favorite villains! Good ol’ fish bowl has always been a thorn in Spidey’s side. Using his Special effects background Quentin Beck has vowed to get even with the web crawler (while being as theatrical as possible.) Here’s to you Mysterio!
