Digital Art: Old Man Darkness Revisited

Last year, I created a tattoo for the great author Michael T. Huyck, Jr., based on an idea he had (see it here). Being that it was for a tattoo, I created it as a grayscale piece to keep things simple. As I’m approaching my visit to the World Horror Convention in Portland, Oregon, I […]

Here at the end of the line

Mixed Media: Here at the end of the line

I’ve been wanting to work in more color with my inks, and I’ve had a number of ideas run through the old noggin. I thought it would be fun to try an experiment with ink and color, so I started in with a sketch of a skull. Not just any skull, of course. I thought […]

Ink Art: Waiting for a turn

Sometimes when I start a new personal piece of art, I don’t necessarily have a direction in mind. I might have a general idea, or a smidgen of something in my head. In many cases, such as last week’s ink (see that here), I know exactly what I want out of it. With this new […]

A Limit of Endurance

Ink Art: A Limit of Endurance

A few things have been rolling around in my head this week. First, the fact that my son used up all of my larger watercolor stock. Second, there have been a lot of Lovecraftian and “King in Yellow” ideas in my brain, probably because I binge watched True Detective the week before. After picking up […]

My Digital Art: Abashed The Devil

I’ve written quite a few blog articles for the Apex Book Company, and every so often I’ll add a piece of my own art to my writing. Sometimes it’s a pre-existing piece, and every so often I’ll create a brand new piece to go with the article. The article I wrote for them in October, The […]

New Art: Old Man Darkness (Tattoo)

Awhile back, I was lucky enough to finally meet an author in person that I’d known online for a number of years. Then the author, Michael T. Huyck (go visit his site, people), asked if I could do some tattoo art for him. I’ve had the question before, but I’ve never made it to the […]

New Acrylic Painting: Hadrosaur-ish

I’ve been working on a number of projects, and one of those is to expand the offerings that I’ll have at my Spectrum Live booth this coming May. To that end, I’m trying to create a number of small acrylic paintings to have there. I’ve also wanted, for some time, to try my hand at […]

Of Unusual Things and Monsters

I was recently looking around my office for a reference for a piece I’m working on, and after a short search I came up with what I was looking for. But when I was done I came to an interesting conclusion. I sure do have a lot of stuff. Now, I’m sure many artists, writers, […]

The new painting: “Consequences”

Though I’ll try and get better pictures of it once it’s dry, I decided to go ahead and add my newest acrylic painting to the site. I call it, Consequences: I’m really having fun with acrylics (and inks for that matter), but they are far different from my digital pieces. I sort of just let […]

Color sketching and fun with Photoshop

I’ve been picking away at a color sketch in Photoshop, and I think it’s finally done.  I try to do pencil sketching, ink and crosshatching practice and Photoshop/digital sketching and manipulation each week just to get new ideas rolling around in my head.  Sometimes they work, other times not so much. I’m also trying to […]
