Drawing animals makes me nervous!  I had to start this one over, because something was just off… I couldn’t put my finger on what it was, but I knew something wasn’t right.  And if I am not satisfied, I can’t see how a client would be satisfied.  So, I did what any rational person would do.  I got aggravated and tore it up.  I sure felt better afterward, though!


Sharp Dressed Men

This one was a request.  Of course, with all that hair, I couldn’t resist! 

I rarely do more than one portrait per work, because I am a chicken-shit… I always worry that I am going to screw up the proportions on one face and have to trash the others.  I think it worked out ok, though.



Reference: A photo sent to me from the early-to-mid-40’s. 

This drawing will not be included in the book, as it stands.  More information on that later.

Remember, now is the time to get those Holiday orders in!  If you don’t have the budget for an original work, I have plenty of prints for you to choose from.



Freya Langford-Sidebottom did a cosplay/makeup art series for 30 days of Halloween in 2017. As SOON as I saw this photo, I knew I just had to get my grubby little paws on it. I might even dive into her photo reserve again in the very near future.

Remember when I said I don’t draw unicorns and fluffy rainbows? Yeah, I can’t say that anymore. Seems I have a whimsical part. What’s happening to me?


Risen [altered]

In the light of recent events, it has come to my attention that the last artwork I created may come off as a little insensitive. It was not my intention. I started that artwork before certain things happened. I didn’t fully grasp the situation during the drawing because I usually am focused ONLY on my work. So, here is an altered version of the artwork that is not quite as gruesome to sensitive viewers. I sincerely apologize for showing that artwork at a very inopportune time.

However, I won’t be removing the other work as it is part of my portfolio. This version will not be going into the book.

It’s October!  Time for some creepy art.  Kirsty always makes fantastic makeup just for the occasion!  You should check out some of her creations.

It was pointed out that this looks like the original character of The Crow by James O’Barr.  And yes, now that it was mentioned, it certainly does!  And I absolutely LOVE the movies, so the book will be mine.  I had never seen the original character until today.  I know, I know, shame on me!  But admission is the first step to recovery!  I will own the book, now.


Trent, again

This one, for very obvious reasons, will also not be going into the upcoming artbook.

This will be the second time I have drawn him.  Probably won’t be the last, though haha!  But I will give you all a break from this subject and continue with the book progression.



This one, for very obvious reasons, will not be going into the upcoming artbook. This was drawn for a private collector who is a very big Nine Inch Nails fan. I have been looking for a reason to draw this man for a long time. And I do believe the next piece will be of him, as well.  I already have the pose in mind.
