My concept for this week’s challenge was based on my dad’s career as a paleontologist. Digging in the dirt and mud was a regular part of his job, and an aspect he enjoyed thoroughly. I had a bit of a setback with this image due to the huge snowstorm this past week, and an unintended […]
Here’s my second go at the Illustration Friday challenge. Both characters seem to be pretty focused in their own way! Although if this guy were really an accomplished yogi, the tiger would become docile in his presence instead of hungry…
My first map illustration for Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine was published this month for their regular feature, Happy Trails. (This one features attractions near Boone, NC.) I’ve really been enjoying this gig and getting to learn about some beautiful places to visit nearby. So if you happen to live in the Blue Ridge area, pick […]
Illustration done for a friend of mine who is an avid surfer and meditator. Gave me a nice excuse to look up the work of Jack Kirby so I could get that classic cosmic look.

Here’s a quick color version for the Kid Hercules graphic novel. My professor was really happy with the comic as a whole (we were only required to do a part of it) and has encouraged me to finish it and get it published. So hopefully I’ll have some time over the holidays to get some […]
Here’s a preview of my upcoming graphic novel entitled: Kid Hercules and the Gigantic Angry Monster Sausage. I’ll have more to post about it soon…
The assignment was to do something for a “Holiday Calendar” for the Richmond Times. Difficulty: no religious symbols, no Santa, no elves. Here’s the final along with the original thumbnail sketch below:
Some more random silliness from my Graphic Novels class. We each had to come up with either a villain or a hero, then we paired up into groups to have our characters duke it out. I came up with the Mezmerizer. (Pictured above.) He’s a villain. He wins in the end ’cause he’s got style…
