turtle bandwagon

throwing my take on these guys into the ring. my little boy has a TMNT coloring book and the line work is totally rad! and there is so much really cool fan art out there, too bad Mr. Bay wouldn't contribute

Hello Disney!

I started at Disney Interactive's game studio this last Monday. I'm joining their team concept team as a 3/4 view artist, primarily designing landscape and architecture to make the layout look pretty. I'm way excited for the opportunity and look forward to getting my butt handed to me daily by all the amazing art ninjas I'll be working with.

Goodbye EA!


After 3 1/2 years I've left Electronic Arts. It was my first job in the biz and I've really learned a lot. I enjoyed my time there and made a lot of great friends. I had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects with many very talented people. There's a lot I will miss about working there, but I've got my eye on some new opportunities.

Syndicate FanArt

Did this a while back, playing with isometric 3D and then painting a ton over. It was a good study in what shortcuts to use 3D for and what to do by hand in the interest of speed. 

I'm really excited for Satellite Reign to come out, I backed their Kickstarter and am totally in awe of the art they've released so far. You can still donate for packages on their website if you missed the original campaign. It's the spiritual sequel to Syndicate (EA has the IP locked away for themselves) by a lot of the original developers. If you loved the originals (90s power!) this looks to be everything you'd want in an updated reboot (unlike EA FPS reboot, great sci-fi shooter, just not Syndicate)

Check it out: SATELLITE REIGN

character study

fantasy genre character study. 

basically, i reference some concept that i like, then rif on the pose, and then break down the shapes of the costume to their basic design. if there's something i don't like, i change it and try to improve on it.

virtual plein air

I recently joined a new Facebook bandwagon, Virtual Plein Air. There are so many talented artists doing awesome work. I'm truly inspired everyday, and then I paint for it every once in a while...
The gimmick is that you surf Google Earth Streetviews and find something that strikes your fancy. You do a painting and post a link to the location. I love it. No thinking up uber-cool concepts, no magic mech necromancers, etc, etc. Just landscapes.

Here are some of my recent submissions.

Sorcerer's Apprentice's Apprentice

work has been sooper busy lately, drawing lots of fun stuff that i'll be able to show... one day

in the meantime a fan art sketch of Wren from The Sorcerer's Apprentice's Apprentice, which is a totally awesome comic Derek Hunter and Jason Young. great humor and a rad 'choose your own adventure' format, complete with reboots and parallel plots! CHECK IT OUT!

also, a really awesome read on Muddy Colors about checking your ego as an artist
