Nature of Water sketch

Here's the sketch for a painting I'm working on for the "Nature of Water" show at Gallery Nucleus next month. Drawing all those little guys seemed like a good idea until I realized that I'd have to paint them all.

Revised Comp

I realized that the monster looked too much like a giant kid and not enough like a monster so I tweaked his design a bit, which also made me make some changes to the color.

Twohead Show and Tell

Here's a Photoshop color comp for a new painting. I want to come up with a story about a kid who brings a twoheaded monster to class for show and tell, hopefully this gives me some inspiration when it's done.

Also, the "Cereal Killers" book was recently mentioned on Newsweek's blog and on I can't wait to see the finished book.

Marble Monster

Here's the finished painting of the "Marble Monster" that I posted about a while back. It's a bit bigger than I usually work, about 20x16 done in goauche.

Cel Vinyl Painting

Here's a painting for Andy Krelle's "The Vines Group Project." Friend and CSUF alumni Andy came up with the idea to link a bunch of wooden panels with a painted line. He invited a group of artists to paint on them incorporating the line into their image. He then assembled the finished panels on his wall for everyone to check out at his yearly barbecue. I hope I'm getting mine back.

Geek Love

Here's a recent painting done as a "thank you" gift for producer Scott Mosier. Scott helped organize and promote Gallery 1988's "Crazy For Cult" show in July. Owner Jensen Karp commissioned me to make a painting from Scott's favorite book, "Geek Love." This scene shows boy "Chick" using his telekinetic powers to lift and chop meat to feed the tigers at his family's carnival. His sister "Oly", an albino dwarf, looks on.
