Makin' Like Audrey!


This sketch was drawn a few days after
watching the Fred Astaire/Audrey Hepburn
classic "Funny Face". No attempt at a
likeness here, obviously, just an impression
left by the lithe and lovely Ms. Hepburn.

Dust #3

Here is a sneak peek at a new project I have
been working on for a publisher called Dust Press.
It's a Bible based comic series called Dust.

I was brought on board to do the cover pencils
for Issue #2 and full pencils for issues #3 and up.

Below is the cover art for issue #3: Seven Sons.
Inks/colors are by Jack Snider.


Here is an art progression of the opening page.
The credits are the same as above.


Dust #3:Seven Sons is nearing completion
and will soon be available for purchase. It, as
well as Dust #4: The Glory Departed, can be
pre-ordered here.

Tiki Magazine Art Show!

Aloha, Dukes and Wahines!
I am taking part in a big art show sponsored
by Tiki Magazine. The show opens on September 13
at the Planet Rooth Gallery in San Diego.

I will have four original paintings in the show,
including "Tiki Beat A-GoGo".

I am quite honored to have been asked to be involved
in a show like this. There is quite a roster of tiki art
heavyweights gathered for the event and to be counted
among them is amazing. Anyhoo, check out the
ultra-swank show poster below for full details:


Mahalo!

Fun with Ink


A bit of a brush & ink
improvisation. Just
letting it do what it
do and then jazzing it
up with the digital
jimmy jam.












This is a lowly sketch; elevated in stature
by the ol' ink treatment. Snappy!

Malcolm


Malcolm is a Martian
(A guy who comes from Mars)
He's a goofy little feller
who travels twixt the stars

He has a lot of eyes, you see
and many legs to boot
and when he gets to telling jokes
he really is a hoot

and skip and jump and run
He also likes to eat small kids
with ketchup on a bun
