I'm finally getting back into some long overdue commissions that piled up after the recent death of my father in January. We were very close and on top of taking care of his estate it was an emotional roller coaster that left no energy for anything but the bare necessities of life. Thankfully he always taught me that despite being in pain "life goes on", and so in that spirit I'm hitting these overdue commissions. Hard. First up is Princess Leia Organa, sketched up for the daughter of a childhood friend. Below are some work-in-progress shots and a timelapse of the piece from my Instagram account. https://instagram.com/p/0HombqyTzV/

Summer Art Dump: Custom Gaming Mats

Talk about a dream gig! This series of 6 custom painted play mats was commissioned by my homestore Madness Games & Comics for their 2014 Star Wars X-Wing Miniature Tournament. mat_full

It was a bit surreal walking in on game day and seeing dozens of games going on right on top of artwork I was working on just a couple of weeks ago. I still get giddy like a schoolboy when I see my art being used for something cool and unique like this.

madness_gaming_matsHere a couple of videos from my Instagram account of the finished pieces in action.

We've moved, again.

We've moved, again.

I've made another move, this one in the really real world. The house I was renting got put on the market and I had to move on shorter notice than I was expecting, and so I ended up about 10 miles farther North, in a little town called McKinney. A town I just so happened to be born in. It's on all kinds of "Safest City" & "Best Suburb" lists, and I'm happy to report that the restaurants on the revamped Downtown Square do not disappoint.

I've been back to work about two weeks now and finally have a moment to stop, catch my breath and update the site a bit. Speaking of, there are about a dozen new pieces in the Commission gallery with more coming soon. I also had time to play around with some watercolors during the packing process and did a few practice pieces including the Dark Phoenix you can see here.

Oh, and those commissions are now officially open!

In the ongoing quest to document my process and gain art fans through YouTube I've got another timelapse/speed drawing video in the can, this one of  everyone's favorite illegal alien, Superman. The Man of Steel. Clark Kent. Kal-El. The original  Man of Tomorrow.

This is about 4 hours of work and was completed 100% on the pixel-box. The initial sketch, which I didn't record, took about an hour or so. You can see the finished piece here.
