hey look!! more thumbys! can you see the thumbnails I have already painted? i can:)

I have been drawing little thumbnail ideas at work and here are some of them im not sure which one i should take to a finish next ill probably have to just flip a coin

Monday, October 27, 2008 not so irritated today so i wont go crazy with the media and what not...anyway this image started out as a wizard fight but it turned into a vampire attack.. please tell me if you all feel this image is as good as the images on my web site or if its lacking, i would appreciate it...

hey look a new poster! its been on my web site for a little while but it was the only new image i had saved and ready for the internet..all the others i have finished aren't saved with the right resolution...but anyway...who is fed up with the news on TV? i know i am... the media is supposed to be non-bi-est (just tell us whats happening) but are they?....NO! do they say anything about the two wars we are in right now? or how the people in wall street are using the taxpayer bail out to give themselves Massive bonuses and parties? nope they are too concerned with how much the want-a-be vice presidents new wardrobe costs (which is a ridiculous amount of money) but who cares? they don't mention how Obama is connected with radical socialists or how he gave 800 thousand dollars to Acorn the corrupt company charged with voter fraud or give McCain any coverage at all? nope... lets report on Sarah Palins' firing of a corrupt trooper and her daughters baby and we'll put a negative spin on it.. the good news it both candidates are getting equal coverage but the bad news is the bias of the media is horribly one sided when it comes to positive and negative spin...I'm not endorsing ether of them running for president, but it is funny how the media is focusing on the vice president and all the negative and difficult questions she has had to answer on one side and not asking them to the presidential runner on the other who i feel most likely couldn't answer them any better for the same reason.. lack of experience...and lets not talk about McCain at all..its almost like the presidential race is Obama vs. Palin not McCain. the Media is Ridiculous and frustrating.

Hey everyone, you are looking at the newest member of Illustration Mundo. Illustration Mundo is a Illustration networking site where people who need Illustrators can go to look at cool art and find someone who can paint in the stile they want. I added a link to the site and if you click on my name from Illustration Mundo it just takes you to my web site, Kinda fun.

I don't know Ann, Harry potter would make a crap load of money no matter when it was released and I think that part of the reason they moved the release date was the fear that the Vampire movie would take some viewers away from the 6th movie of Harry. but I'm with you, they most likely felt the movie would do better in the summer...crazy greedy people...don't they know I want to watch it now??...anyhoo here is another painting, I was real pleased with the border I think it turned out kinda cool. the writing on the scroll says "the deeds of the saints 7" in Latin, I liked the way it sounded so i put it on.

Harry Potter!!! I was so annoyed that they decided to move the release date from this November to next summer. and all because some romantic vampire movie is coming out in November! like it stands a chance against Harry Potter. So this is my tribute to Book 7 and Harry's escape from Privet drive.

hello everyone... here are two logos I made for Challas Id high school, they were fun to draw. they wanted a male and a female viking so there could be equal opportunity for everyone. I tried to make them as non-violent as possible being for a high school and all, but I had to go for a sword with the Girl Viking-et. I haven't done anything in just black and white for a long time. I usualy always go for the entire-full-color painting now a-days. so it was nice to just draw something to a finish.

New website up and going

Ha! my new website is finally up and running! you can visit it at the link off to the side. I have a few quirks to work out like shrinking some of the images to get them to load quicker but that wont be hard now that i have everything else uploaded. so check it out and tell me what you think, and I should be posting more often now that the site is done and I'm back off of summer break.

Its been a while sense my last post I've been running all over since I've graduated. I've been playing around with friends and i went to visit family its been a lot of fun but I've not been on my computer much. I've been sketching some and painting a little. here is a new poster I have been working on. its been fun its not as refined as some of my posters but it was fun to do. I have been working on a new web site a lot lately too its almost done. hopefully I'll have the new website up and running sometime before next month Ive had my super-computer-friend-Larry helping me by writing all the code for the new site based on my design, thanks Larry. Ill have a new post when i finally get my new web site up so everyone can go over and see it.
but its not ready yet so you'll just see my old site if you go look now. the old site wasn't too bad but it was thrown together very quick so i would have something to show when i went to new York last summer. so now that ive had more time i hope the new site will look more professional

Hey Check out the illustrators partnership link on my page here (its under the cool illustrators links) and send a letter to the senators about the orphan act its a messed up bill that will take the copy right protection away from artists and let anyone infringe on the copy right without any real penalty. the link to the letter is on the main page and i think it is a good idea for artist to let the government know its a bad idea.

also you can check out Marcelo Vignali's blog (its under the same illustrators links as the partnership) there is a massive debate going on over there about the orphan act and its really interesting, check it out

more BFA stuff

here are some images from my senior show. a few CD designs and a poster. Static-X was one of my favorite posters to work on. It was a lot looser than the other posters and it was a lot of fun to paint so fast and not so refined as the other posters in my show.

Harp player

I made it in to the Society of Illustrators Student show this year with this poster I am real exited. Its funny because its not one of my favorite posters, i it made for my bfa show and some of the other posters I liked alot better like the Hendrix poster and the weev poster i also liked the voodoo poster better but thats how it gos some people like some images and not others its cool how everyone has there own unique opinion.

like mike

this is a political assignment we were to make an image about the presidential election
sense I didn't like any of the candidates i went for a faceless candidate, you can probably guess who it is.
