Last year, I created a cover for author Vincenzo Bilof’s Necropolis Now: Zombie Ascension. So, as is sometimes the case and something I look forward to, he asked if I could create the art for the book’s sequel, the now-released Queen of the Dead: Zombie Ascension II (go get it here). Most of my year […]
I think sketching is a very valuable tool for an artist. I use it for practicing my craft, which is important. I use it to doodle certainly, to just let the brain play as it will. I also use it, almost like doodling, to really let my imagination run free. No rules, no forced content, […]
Something that comes up from time to time is the need, as an artist and a designer, to have a portfolio to show someone in person. That could be at a convention, or a job interview, various places where having a portable way to show your work would come in handy. For many years, I’ve […]
On Thursday, I posted my newest ink/digital artwork, of Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin character from Star Wars. I decided today, while taking a break between art pieces (and while my internet is working) to upload this article about how it was created. I like to post these kinds of articles for a couple of […]

Just in case anyone out there wants them (I’ve had a question here and there on it), I saved a number of my art pieces as computer downloads.
Ok, so my “little break” was more like a couple of weeks. Add “extreme coughing from the lungs” to “Post-Las Vegas” and there you go. But I’m back, and this one is an interesting one for me. It’s one of the first art pieces that I really took something from, especially in the extreme […]
I’ve thought about it, and not only are these posts fun but they help me grow as an artist. In it, I pick an image from past art and give out my thoughts on it. I’m not really an expert (though I have actually had the classes), and what I say is merely how I […]
