Dancing in the Street


Can you feel the heat? We're dancing at the party on Concrete Street! We got Artie on the left with a beer in his hand with a monster as his guest and to the right is Stan! With something disconcerting on the front of his shirt, too exerted to flirt with the girl by the curb - with her fresh pink dress and others dressed to impress, I like the one that's sitting shirtless with his belly well fed! We never said that this party'd ever come to an end - the sun is setting but no fretting we can do it again!

Finding Love on Sunshine Street


"Finding Love on Sunshine Street." I colored this pen & ink drawing using a Wacom pen & tablet with Rebelle by Escape Motions. This software simulates water on paper and reacts just like real paint! The interesting textures, drips, and bleeds all happen naturally in Rebelle. Wet color washes into neighboring paint, plus it has "undo," layers, as well as .PSD support - critical features for illustration work since clients often request changes. Rebelle is amazing. Highly recommended.

Rebelle is available at http://www.escapemotions.com and v2.0 should be out later this month with all the new features!

University Sketch Part 2


Found my dream pen once & for all: Pilot Custom 823 with FA nib. It's truly perfect. This is final line work for a rough sketch posted previously - the characters will be drawn separately and comped on top before coloring. Drawn from photo ref because I needed that exact location.

Ghost-Terrarium


My friend, the responsible thing to do...
When buying a new pen is to sell another two.
So then my friend named "Harry M." bought one pen,
And he asked me to paint a Ghost-Terrarium for him.
That's when I took the new pen to a Moleskine page...
And drew a family of ten trapped in a ghost-shaped happy cage!

Sunshine in the Sky


Three Islands. A paradise and a nice quiet place to go.
But alas, it's not in my fate because work is all I know.
I heard the call and chose to draw these drawings 'til I die,
To live by the pen, I survive by painting sunshine in the sky.
