Angels and Backhoes

I guess I’ve been on a bit of a observational drawing kick. Today I went to the Mountain View Cemetery, near Piedmont Avenue in Oakland to sketch some of the statues on the headstones there. Statues are fun to draw because they’re all about gesture and attitude. They can be tricky though because they are […]

waterfall in wine country

It may be a pretty tired cliche but nature is truly the best muse an artist can ask for. I went on a relaxing jaunt in the beautiful Napa Valley with a few friends today and took the opportunity to make some sketches at a waterfall at the end of the trail. The area was […]

they came from dreams

I have henceforth released the title of my next project… it is “They Came From Dreams.” It is going to be a series of illustrations totaling somewhere around 6 to 8 (haven’t quite decided that number yet). Thumbnails and sketches are coming together for what I am think should be an intriguing set of images […]

a night at the crepe place

Last night, I had the great opportunity to see live music… and capture some of it in sketch form! My brother Alex plays in a group called the Emily Moldy Band, and he invited me to see them play with another folk artist named Sean Burns and the Lilac Field at a little joint called […]

more concepts from another dimension

More concepts for my sci/fi project! They seem to be heading into more of a horror direction, via H.P. Lovecraft… and I am very much OK with that. The unknown is always the most frightening, so I think it’s perfectly suitable for this type of genre. Sci/fi horror blends have always been some of the […]

a few more extraterrestrials

      I find aliens to be a uniquely enjoyable creatures to imagine and create. There are no definitions or boundaries for what they can be, so it’s actually quite a challenge. More often than not, when aliens are depicted in popular culuture they don’t look too much different from ourselves (two arms, two […]

figure studyin’

      Figure drawing is something I always try to get back to when time allows for it. Ideally, I prefer to draw from life… but as most artists know naked folks are a hard crowd to contact on a whim. As a result, I work from anatomy manuals, and the stellar photography they feature is good […]

Future King goes live!

Yes, those are frames welded from STEEL. Future King entered the world stage this last Thursday at a gallery in California College of the Arts in San Francisco. The evening was superb all around, complete with input from art directors from Mother Jones, Wired, University of San Francisco, the De Young Museum of Art and […]

new project!

Been sketching some character ideas for a new project that’s currently marinating in the creative cooker… I’ve been on  a bit of a sci/fi kick recently, and I realized it’s been quite some time since I explored the genre in illustration. After watching almost the entire first season of the original Star Trek, (I’m traditionally […]
