This is for our recent theme for the sketch-o-rama blog.
With my "final" piece I wanted to go for more of a children's book feel. I also wanted to add some type that would complement the illustration and I knew I wanted it to be somewhat decorative. I've been messing around with type lately and successful or not, I've been enjoying myself. I wanted to go for a foresty look for this one, let me know what you guys think, might still need some tweaks. I will add color to this and post it in the near future so keep on the look out!
The other image is just a compilation from my sketchbook to show you guys what a spaz I am! I enjoy exploring my ideas and a new one constantly pops into my head sometimes in the middle of drawing some other idea/concept. This can sometimes frustrate me because it impedes my ability to take anything to finish, anything that I am not getting paid for at least !
I would love to hear your guys thoughts on this subject, how good are you guys to committing to an idea. I got a feeling a lot of people out there are like me and love to explore things, come on guys help me out here, I feel like a freak sometimes=)

This was a fun piece to work on. Us at Sketch-o-Rama, decided to do Star Trek as a theme due to the summer movie. I decided to do a comic page for a change. I tried to focus on the coloring of the piece, because I think I would do a good job coloring comics one day. The gag is kinda stupid but it was quick and a ton of fun, hope you guys dig!
The deal with this character is that he is the most competitive fetus in the world. The only draw back is that he is a freaking fetus and can't really play any game well!!! Bless his heart he tries as hard as he can but his slimmy gooey fingers and limbs hinder his ability to compete!! One day fetus will win at something but for now...YOU CAN'T WIN FETUS!!!!
Introducing the cutest/meanest dog I have ever met!!
>>The Blog is now done!! I might change the banner if I can think of something better but for now this is it!!! Hope you guys like it, any feedback would be appreciated. And if you like what you see please sign up to follow the blog. Thanks!

Hey everyone, it's been a really long time! I have been working, but also enjoying summer and being extremely busy. I will be making more frequent posts because I have a lot of stuff to share. In the meanwhile the Cleveland Art Museum just opened it's East wing and It's pretty amazing with works from Picasso, Van Gogh, Degas, Warhol, Gauguin and more. Amazing stuff!
Also they have a good variety of classical statues that are great for sketching. I did this sketch from a furniture piece I found really interesting. Hope you guys enjoy and I will be posting more soon!
+New Sketch-o-rama piece coming soon!!

Thor painting I started a while back, this version is about 50% finished, more on this one later.
This piece is big! about 24x36. The drawing is barely getting somewhere but I am excited about the possibilities for this piece. I will make a post for this painting soon!
This is the skate deck I finished for a group show here in town. The skate deck is going for $600.00 if anyone out there in internet land is interested.
Here is a taste of the personal projects I've been working on lately. I am back on the painting groove and I haven't felt this way since college when I was doing my senior thesis. I have a lot of people to thank for this new rejuvenated passion for painting but I won't name then here, you guys know who you are. Hope you guys enjoy the sneak peek and please drop me a line to say what's up. I am planning a solo gallery show in the fall so Im cranking, wish me luck!!

Hey all, some of my fellow artist and myself are starting sketch-o-rama back up again. Sketch-o-rama is a theme sketch blog where other awesome artist put up cool pieces based on themes we assign each other, mostly redesigns of cool characters we all love. The theme I came up with recently was to do a redesign of Cobra Commander. I'm talking about the way you envision the ruthless leader of Cobra, the most evil terrorist organization of all time!! This dude should be one badass looking bastard and personally I don't think giving him a serious breathing problem and a skin condition is quite enough for the leader of all this evil! Here's my take, hope you enjoy and I can't wait for everyone else to jump on this one!! PEACE!!!

Hey guys, so I'm trying to update this blog regularly so I'm shooting for at least once a week!
This is a book I illustrated based on a show I worked on called Sushi Pack, on air on Saturday mornings on CBS!
Working on this book was a TON of work but worth it now that it's out in book stores everywhere so pick one up if you are hanging out and checking out some books!
I'm sharing just a few of the 16 spreads I did for this book. The book is a step into reading book meant to teach kids early reading skills and it's based on an episode from season 1.
Buy one here on Amazon if you care to pick one up and show some love!!
I hope you digs and let me know what you think of course=)

I have made a resolution(non-new years) that I will try and post something at least once a week. I will put my blogging into overdrive and start producing work like I used to. If you guys have any suggestions for themes they are more than welcome! For now this is a hulk study with me experimenting with photoshop and brushes. This took me around 30 min and it was fun. I know it is random but It was an impulse thing. Let me know what you think. Peace!
