Every year I try to get one of these out in time for print, process and mail. It seems like a task when everything else in the mix like Christmas shopping and working around our daughters schedule limit the time. Despite all that it's a fun project to partake in and one I always feel satisfied doing annually. I think if I didn't I'd feel more guilty than not! Well enough of me griping, here's our annual family Christmas card featuring our new addition in the company of our two feathered friends, furry feline-son Le Roy and us of course. I hope you enjoy it!
Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year!

Here's a sketch of the main character to my story that Ive been working on. It's my first pass on the character and I can already see a lot I'd like to improve on. Overall the concept is there and I'll be sure to post more of my development as I continue on.

Here's an idea I've been wanting to illustrate for a while. Being a big Star Wars fan I've always wanted to draw my own rendition of Darth Sidious/Emperor. The idea came to me one day at work while on lunch and like many other ideas, I sketched it out as a thumbnail and tossed it into my personal concept morgue. I also wanted to get this done before May 4th as it's international Star Wars day as well as our first born's due date! So here's to Star Wars and to a new generation I'll be passing on a piece of nostalgia to. May the 4th be with you!

My wife just turned the big 30 and we held a surprise party for her at one of her favorite restaurants, the Keg. Here's an image I made that was later printed as a card that everyone in attendance signed. You'll notice the cake is rittled with little icing icons that represent milestones and roles she's had through these past 30 years.

Here's a more resolved col erase pencil rough of the Fyre Draek. In retrospect I've decided that I may keep the screen left hand and human as they were in the initial pen sketch. I think it makes for a better pose and composition. I'm currently doing the linnear work in flash and once thats done I'll be rendering it in Photoshop.

I've been pretty impressed so far with the results I can get using PITT artist pens. I've been enjoying sketch book work moreso than usual since it doesn't require me to be throwing down a bunch of lines to get the tones I want. I sketched this page over a day or so of dabbling. I've been flushing out a bunch of ideas for a story I have that seems to be filled with endless possibilities.
