Fate and Junk

So last month I had an interview to teach a Fall class to little kids on how to draw anime. It was a good interview, but I didn't get the job. However I was offered a class teaching a storybook illustration class in the spring. Even though I got offered the other class, I was pretty bummed.

A few weeks later, the very week the Fall class was supposed to start, I got an email from Mongoose publishing about doing some interior illustrations for an upcoming RPG expansion book.
I spent three solid weeks illustrating for that. They liked my material so much that they offered me the cover illustration for their next book after. So I guess things worked out, because I would have never had the time to do those illustrations otherwise.

I can't post anything from those projects yet since they are as of yet, unpublished. Since this is a sketch blog, here are some random anime concept sketches I did back when I was getting back into the anime mood.

Broken Sword

I painted a mock up fantasy book cover, featuring a version of a friend's character for his birthday.

Monsters on my brain!

After that monster project, I have monster fever. I started this one a couple nights ago, just for fun. Hopefully I can finish it for the ol' portfolio

Just finished up the last of the monster concepts. Here are a few of them.

Working and Mega Man

So I finally got some contract work. I finished the first phase and I'm waiting for approval from the client. In the mean time I drew this Mega Man for a friend's B-day present.

The old man and working

I have posted some bids on various freelance sites recently. I'm really hoping to get some work soon. This is a piece I'm not quite done with yet. I still have a ways to go on his cloak and the head piece. Here is the old ink sketch it came from too.

Alien WIP

I sketched and started to paint an alien creature.


So I was looking through old email archives and I happened upon this old painter file from 1998.
This was probably one of the first digital paintings I ever did, before I even had a wacom tablet.
I feel like I haven't come very far with the exception that I probably spent like a month on this and now I could do it in one night if I put my mind to it.

war paint

Quick concept I drew last week and painted last night

and we're off...

I'm starting this blog to maybe get myself a bit more motivated and draw more. Hopefully I can keep things updated regularly. This first illustration was a page from a short story I wrote, that I pipe dream about getting published.
