The roughest of all rough sketches for one of the backgrounds I’m doing for Light Grey Art Lab's Great Personality show. All of the screens will have 4 frame animated gifs. CAN’T WAIT.
My super cool girlfriend, Leigh Luna, is putting together an exhibition with some of her friends called The Babe, The Bitch, and The Blueblood which is about female archetypes in fairytales. I got the Damsel in Distress. This would have been an easy show to do yet another fantasy illustration, but I really wanted to do something different. This is also the first piece I’ve ever done completely digitally, which I’m actually pleased with.
A collection of things that I didn’t think of.
This is where I put all of the stuff that I find inspiration in terms of imagery, style, subject, etc. Basically its a collection of everything I rip off. Follow it if you want.
Duck Tales! Woo-oo! I did this painting as a commission. I actually know next to nothing about the show, but it was fun to do! This is the painting after a bit of digital color adjustment.
Also, I’m super in the middle of something really really big that involves a lot of writing and secrecy, so it’s a bit of radio silence for a while, guys.
I completely revamped my website! It now actually reflects my current work PLUS you can read all of my comics for totally free. If free isn’t your jam, there’s also a little mini shop where you can buy the few books I have in stock.
Old stuff: I made this Porygon about a year and a half ago. I really got into creating fake 3D geometric crystaline structures in Illustrator so I kinda couldn’t not do this.
Finally got back to that spooky ghost cowboy animation. Enjoy!
My piece for the Rolemodels show at Light Grey Art Lab. This one’s been waiting in the wings for a while. Each artist was tasked with creating a fantasy character that encapsulated something about themselves. I chose an evil mage who wields awesome snot powers because at the time, my allergies had completely infected my brain.
The collection actually makes a playable (and fun) card game and all of the art is seriously a feat of impressiveness. Seriously look at these. You should for sure grab a deck for yourself, but bigger prints are also for sale here.
The opening reception October 25th and I will be there in costume, brave companions.
I talked with Lindsay Nohl about process and work and how to be a professional a few weeks back on the Light Grey Art Lab Podcast, specifically about my Ainulindalë book. Listen and enjoy and hear one of my favorite people, Anna Bongiovanni, say the complete opposite of everything I say!
Click to listen. I think the best part is at the end.
Also, they may have a few copies of my book left for sale in their shop, which would be THE ONLY place to get it right now.
Super rough dumb animation loop.
