Best films of the year editorial illo

Here's a piece I did for the Washington Free Beacon celebrating their author's opinions of the best films of the year. Characters included are from the films Snowpiercer, Whiplash, Frank, and Guardians of the Galaxy. I'm sorry I haven't been posting more art. I've been doing many freelance projects, including one for Cartoon Network that I'm not able to share yet. But hang tight, lots more art is on the way! Happy holidays everyone!

The Road to Mount Doom

"Mordor... the one place in Middle-Earth we don't want to see any closer... the one place we're trying to get to... is just where we can't get."

The Evolution of the Movie Vampire

Happy Halloween everyone! For a spooky treat, I wanted to track the progression of how vampires have evolved in films from the terrifyingly ratlike Nosferatu to the near-superhero Dracula of this year's Dracula Untold. Vampires have often bounced between comedy and horror, and I tried to represent as many different iterations of this as possible. How did I do? Which movie vampires would you have included?

The Evolution of Catwoman(film and tv)

A tribute to one of the greatest comic characters of all time: Catwoman! I can't decide who I like better- Michelle Pfeiffer or Julie Newmar. Which Catwoman is your favorite?

The Evolution of Robin Williams

My tribute to the illustrious career of Robin Williams. Obviously, there are many, many more movies that could be included in this piece, but I tried to represent as many highlights as I could. This particular Evolution was quite emotional to draw. Williams' work was so meaningful to me, and a big part of my childhood. His death is a loss for us all. I'm not very eloquent at eulogizing, so hopefully my art will speak for itself and remind you of the joy you felt watching his films.

I am selling this piece as a print here, and for every copy I sell, I am donating $5.00 to the St. Jude Children's Hospital, a charity Williams was very passionate about.

Countdown to SDCC 2014

I'm extremely excited to announce that I'll be at San Diego Comic Con selling my books and prints. This year marks the first year I've had a table space, and I'm super stoked to show you guys new stuff! I've got all new goodies debuting at the show including this '89 Batman print, and tons of 5x7" character mini prints! I'll be at table F-2, sharing with the extremely talented Danni Shinya Luo, so pop by and say hi!

Rebooted: Ninja Turtles

A piece done for the "Heroes in a Half Shell" exhibit opening in 2 days at Gallery Nucleus. Maybe it's just me, but the over designed Michael Bay turtles have none of the charm and warmth of the originals, and that makes me kinda sad. I haven't seen the movie yet, but judging how much I hate the new Transformers movies, I doubt I'll enjoy this one.

Griping aside, the 30th anniversary of the Turtles IS pretty exciting, and Nucleus has a great show to celebrate this historic milestone. If you're in the LA area, check it out! It looks amazing, and the roster of artists is incredible. Info here.

Mystical girl

I was looking through a great book of artwork by legendary pin-up artist Gil Elvgren and wanted to take a crack at a sexy pin up girl. I don't usually draw these type of comic-book proportions, but I think it's a pretty good attempt.

Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

Wow, I simply can't believe it's been 25 years since Tim Burton's Batman flick came out. I remember it had a massive impact on me at the time, to say the least. It got me heavily interested in superhero toys and comic books, which I still love to this day. While I adored the Superman films, this one hit at just the right time in my adolescent development, as I started to crave something a little more mature than Adam West and Burt Ward's antics. I couldn't let the day go by without acknowledging this milestone somehow. What's your favorite Batman memory? Leave a comment!

The Super Fiends!

An original property, the Super Fiends are a bunch of misfit, would-be super villains who can't seem to get anything right. From the left, Drakor, Professor Brain, Baron Wasteland, Morphette, and Bionic Monkey Head.

Blue is the Warmest Color

I can't sleep, so I thought I'd illustrate one of my favorite moments from Blue is the Warmest Color. What a beautiful scene. If you've seen it, you know the one.

Hey guys, firstly, let me just say thank you SO much for all your support of my work. I'm actually pretty surprised so many websites picked up my ABC image and ran with it. If you'd like a copy of this work as a beautiful poster print, it's available now on my web store here.

30 Day Movie Challenge Day 28-Director

So, with all the craziness with conventions, my book, my prints and the lot, I completely forgot to finish my 30 day Movie challenge from last year. Yikes. SO, without further ado, here's Day 28: Director. It's not much more than a sketch really, but it's a loving tribute to Kubrick and his viral video pal, Brian Atene. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Mr. Atene, you have to watch possibly the most awkward video audition ever made:

And here's the whole thing all put together. Over two solid
weeks of work on this project, whew. I hope you like it, it was a blast to make! :)

The Ultimate Pop Culture Alphabet: GHI

This illustrated alphabet is a ton of fun to illustrate so far- I hope you're enjoying it!

(and yessss, I had to paint out He-Man's sword, totally forgetting it wasn't going to fit in the allotted space. Always plan ahead, kids. :P)

The Ultimate Pop Culture Alphabet: ABC

For my next series, I thought it would be fun to do my own take on an illustrated alphabet. I've seen other artists do this, and I wanted to take a crack at it. (In case it wasn't completely obvious: A for Ariel, B for Batman, C for Cobra Commander. You get the idea.) I hope you enjoy the series!

Kickstarter book rewards

I'm not going to post them all, but here are some of the dozens of commissions I did for people who pledged to my Kickstarter.
