This is another commission that I completed for Smartsheet's "Photon" release similar to the Endeavour piece I worked on a few months ago. For this month's theme, I decided to go a bit more abstract....

I've been posting some daily sketches during Advent season on my social media channels. You can subscribe to any of the following feeds to see the latest pieces....

It's that time of year again! Time to pop bust out the ink and brushes for Inktober. Last year's drawings took me a long time to finish, I ended up finishing sometime in mid November. This year, I went with smaller sketches so that I could finish them in time especially given how busy life has been lately....

This is an overdue post, it's been pretty hectic trying to sneak in some blogging in between parenting, moving, and remodeling. Smartsheet commissioned me last summer for a piece based on the title of one of their monthly software releases. For this commission, I had to base the artwork on the title, "Endeavour." I reviewed some of art of their previous...

Earlier this year, I was interviewed by Paul Hong, aka Dreamlander, who does these great video interview essays on people and passion. He was able to record some of footage while I was tabling at ECCC as well as provide some sneak peeks into my messy workspace at home. I'd say he did a smashing job, although, the guy in the...

A while ago, I was introduced to the Character Design Challenge when I restarted my Facebook account. It's similar to the Sketch Dailies themes that I used to participate in except that it's a monthly theme and there's more of a format to the submissions. I tried to submit for some of the previous months' themes, but I would always end up...

Here's an old childhood drawing I did of a superhero. I went and redrew it, click on the post title to see the full image....

I've been enjoying the recent tribute shows that I've been a part of, and this next show is a special one. I had the pleasure of working on a piece for the City of Irvine's art exhibit called, "Walt and the Flying Bull." It's an art exhibit that pays tribute to an insignia designed by Walt Disney for the Marine...

Recently, I completed a series of pieces in anticipation for...

Another piece for Gallery 1988! On May 5, there is an opening show next week for a tribute show based on works by Stephen King next week from 7-9pm. My piece, titled "There He Is!" is based off of the 1986 movie Stand By Me when the boys finally reach their goal. It will be up on display from May 5th to the...

I recently submitted a piece for Gallery 1988's Memes show. It's based off of the Success Kid meme and even includes a cameo by you-know-who. The show will be next Friday, April 14 at their West location on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. If you happen to attend the show, snap a photo and send it to me![vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no"...
