This was done for an art contest to create a comic book cover for prequel comic inspired by the film INCEPTION.
I decided to give this a go because I love comic book cover art and contests always really push you to do your very best. Plus, doing likenesses isn't a strength of mine so it was an opportunity to really work on it. I think I got Cobb's (Dicaprio) likeness reasonably well but Saito's (Watanabe) is only somewhat recognizable. I do like the color theory for this one. It's different than the usual, which I always like to see.

So, in keeping with the magazine's vibe, I was asked to help come up with an ad for one of the patch companies my company owns. While sitting with my marketing director coming up with some ideas I thought to myself, "What do college guys like?" The answer?
But seeing as I wanted it to be funny and not insulting to opposite sex I decided to take that phrase literally. Thus was born this ad. Hope you get a little chuckle out of it.

As I've mentioned, I've been working on some portfolio pieces as of late and this one stemmed from a rough sketch I had done while doing an illo for author Norman Partridge's story THE IRON DEAD.
While I wasn't really going for an accurate interpretation of Norm's story, it's very obvious where my inspiration for this piece hails from. But then if you've read the story you understand that it's almost impossible to not be inspired by it.

First off, let me say that if you haven't read DARK HARVEST by Norman Partridge leave my blog right now, get yourself a copy and then come back. I'll wait here.
Now that you've got that out of the way, let me make you extra excited. Norm's got an all Halloween short story collection called JOHNNY HALLOWEEN coming out soon that has a prequel to DARK HARVEST. It's already up for pre-order at www.cemeterydance.com
I suggest you snatch up that bad boy early because if it's anything like Norm's last collection LESSER DEMONS, it's gonna disappear real fast.
All the best.

I decided to enter an art contest, not so much because I thought I could win, but because I thought it would give me an opportunity to expand my portfolio. So, here's a sneak peak at what I'm doing for it. Wish me luck!

Every year the MS Society has MS Walks that they use to generate donations to help further research into helping cure MS. My mother has started a team, which she has dubbed Sherry's Angels, that, with the help of her walker, will be participating in the MS walk this year.
Through my job I'm creating T-Shirts for my mom's team. Here's the angel I did for them with a few tweaks to the color just for fun.
If anyone is interested in the walk or just wants to donate here's the MS Society's website: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/
Or you can feel free to contact me with any questions. Any help anyone can give is greatly appreciated.
All the best.

On the left is the illustration I did according to customer's description and on the right is the embroidered result.
Over the next few days I'll post some of my older stuff but I'll try to get some new stuff up soon too. Thanks for stopping by.
