I can't wait for the jokes & mockery that generations down the road have to say about music from the late 2000s.

Hot Dogs

Hot Dogs are awesome. So are bathysphere type diver helmets. Oh, and ray guns.

The comic Carnivàle de Robotique is coming along nicely. The inking is 75% done, and the color is getting there! Two to Three weeks more of coloring, touch-ups, and late nights!

Fiat 500

I love the shape of these Italian cars. What I don't like is the color I chose, but I guess thats expected when you haven't slept in 30 hours.

They also race in these things, at least my dad tells me.

Midnight doodles

Sometimes when you draw the same 7 robots over and over again, you need to do something else so that you don't go crazy.

Disgaea 2 Mothman (or half of him)

I love space, it just sucks I won't be around when we take to it

The only thing keeping me sane now that the sun is down sooner
(I haven't had a good idea to put in here at the moment. I was thinking "This sketch book sucks" but that would be too easy (or hard on myself))

Beep Beep Boop *zrrrrrrt*

So as many of you might know, I recently got offered two jobs: a one-shot 22 page comic, and another short graphic novel (I think its somewheres about 80 pages), both about robots.
I just recently finished up my last freelance job with Columbia University doing page layouts and making graphs, and am now working on the one-shot, seeing as how I don't want the robot characters to trickle into each other while working on the two at the same time. (Mixing two people's creations together sometimes never works out for at least one party involved.)

Anyways, I'd figure some quick sketches of the cast of the robot carnival characters might tie you guys over for a bit!




Remington Thunder

And as a bonus, I remember telling some people that I owned the orginal Charles Barkley vs. Godzilla comic.
well, here's my proof!

Dubbed by many to be both the Worst, and Best comic story ever.
(Actually, I'm not sure how much that is true.)

Dog Days of Summer

Sorry guys, but summer has been a bit too fun this time to spend a lot of it glued to a piece of metal.
But, alls I can show for it is a glimpse of my sketchbook. I hope to have a few more up by the end of the month,
seeing how I got my first freelancing job a day or two ago to finish out.

What better way to cover a bar doodle gone wrong, is a collage...of sorts.

I still haven't come up with a name for this guy yet. Chubby, and friendly sea monster, with the 9 to 5 duty of fighting off other monsters, in the old Godzilla type way.
(Alls I got is Tikkle, but the name reference is probably way too obscure for anyone to notice/care)

Long time no update.

Been trying to get my life organized, complete my portfolio, fixing & updating my website, and prepare for the work world post-graduation.
Anyways, a few new pieces.

A character design for Captain Ahab of Moby Dick, if it were to be turned into a animate kid's film or television show.

An excerpt from Shel Silverstein's "The Generals" poem

A spot piece for Jack Prelutsky's poem "The Flotz"

And last but not least, freshly done...

A piece for an upcoming book by Josh Frost called "100 Ways to the Dark Side."

Been a few weeks since I last updated, All because of this:

(photos stolen from Kaitlyn McCane, I hope she doesn't mind)

The hanging of UArt's Illustration Senior Thesis Show, or simply put, the ELY.

(This guy, I don't know what he's doing here. Probably having a seizure or something.)

A nice 4 hour hanging process. Luckily, nothing went too terribly wrong. But if you're reading this, and are in the Philadelphia area on the 29th, you should come check it out!

Anyways, here's a new piece done for Megan's portfolio class.
A spot illustration dealing with the unknown deaths and disappearances of Honey Bees across the US, which can
poise to be a huge problem if it continues.

Ink and Watercolor.

Doodle Monsters

Steve scribbled some garbage onto a piece of paper. I turned it into a quick monster doodle.
