Did this for fun while watching a movie last night. Ink & brush on paper.
Ink & chalk on Rives BFK
This is what I did Saturday. Ink & Posca Pen on paper.
Here is the finished product for the Doomed Astronaut. Between 10 and 15 hours. Farber Castell Pitt pen & FW acrylic ink on bristol. 11″x17″. Let me know what you guys think.
This will be the first print that hits my Etsy store. I’ll keep everyone posted on that.

Oh my, two new posts in two days! What are the chances of this happening again? (not good.)
Here are some new scans from my current 3×5″ moleskine, the poor thing fell out of my pocket Christmas eve and was drizzled upon for about ten hours before I found it in the driveway Chrismas Day. HOORAY FOR THE HOLIDAYS! =\
Luckily the damage wasnt’ as bad as I would have thought other than some slight rippling of the pages. A bit of Photoshop trickery was used in getting some of the imperfections those waves caused during scanning.
Sniff the flowers
Hello all, Not quite so long a gap here as usual. I’m putting up a mix of stuff here. Some of it is from before the last post, some new, and the big finished piece was started over 6 months ago only to be picked up last Thursday and finished over the weekend. This is in addition some freelance work I’m doing as well, so I have been keeping busy. I’d love to hear any comments, so fire away if you have any.
This next one is a big finished piece. I had lots of fun with this, especially the brain pattern in the trees in the background.
and as an added bonus, I’m adding in a portrait of yours truly done by the talented Johnny Segura. Check out his work here: http://auronasia.deviantart.com/
Here’s more proof that I haven’t been totally lazy over that long gap in posts.
Some of these were made from reference photos provided the Octolady herself, Rupa dasGupta. If you haven’t seen her stuff yet go check it out immediately. http://anoctopusaday.tumblr.com/
Ok, here is a whole gaggle of new images. That sketchbook that I started a couple posts back, well this is the end of it. Next post will be stuff from a new one.
And last but not least are a couple pieces of unfettered fanboy goodness. The Eva was done the night before cyphacon, and Tetsuo was done while hanging with my buddy John Davis at his table at the con. They are both ink and white gouache on pastel paper (plus just a touch of green on the EVA.)
I’m going to try to stay on a much more consistent updating schedule, but I think i say that a lot, so we shall see.
Finally updating. I’m putting a pretty good chunk of stuff up today. This is easily the biggest post I’ve put up here so far.
(As always, click the images to get to bigger versions for your viewing pleasure.)
Starting off with a piece I did for/of my good friend John Davis. Sorry it took so damned long John, I hope it was worth the wait.
Gouache & Watercolor on paper
This represents about six and a half hours geeking out with a new mechanical pencil on a Friday night. Good god my social life is a sad sad thing.
Graphite on Bristol board. 11″x14.
Here is a new scratchboard, featuring my favorite carrion eater.
And now a bunch of new crap from my 3″x5″ standard & watercolor paper moleskines and an 8″x5″ moleskine. Some of this stuff is actually drawn from life!
Ok, well here is the start of the new moleskine.

*bottom page – Gouache
Hello all. It has been entirely too long since my last update. In that time lots of sketches have piled up, so this will be a big one. This will wrap up my previous moleskine. I finished it off a day or two after the new year, but I don’t care, I’m counting it as #3 filled up in 2010. I’m going to try to do more this year, and the beginning of the next book will in the next post.
*Gouache on the left, water color pencil on the right.
And that is the last page. Next post will be from the new book.
I’ve been on quite the crab kick lately, so I thought I’d share.
First up are a couple color sketches using Farber Castell markers & Ink.
This guy will be going on to become a digital piece later. Trying to play up the contrast between the cuteness of the crab and the fact that he would gladly eat your tender bits if you happen to drown in the ocean.
In honor of the sketch night I wasn’t able to attend due to a munchkin sleepover. Here is the flash as requested by Kobi Sonnier.
Micron pen, ink & brush & cool gray copic marker.
Here is a tree guy I did for fun. His name is Leaf Erikson. Ink on paper. 12″ x 16″.
(I’ll be doing a background and colors digitally on this piece later. I’ll post progress as I make it.
