Joker Commission

This is pretty much the same as a Joker that I did in the past at the request of the person who commissioned it from me. I figured I would post it anyway just because I'm bored! ;)

Pair Of Jokers

Star Wars Galaxy

I am finally going to be an official Star Wars artist with the release of 'Star Wars Galaxy 4' trading cards from Topps. I will be doing 100 sketch cards for the set, and it is my first time working on a licensed Star Wars product. Very cool, very excited!

Indy Sketch Card

I'm going to start posting stuff on the blog more regularly. I've been posting more art on my deviantART page because it is more accessible to a wider audience of people, but now that I have categories set up here I will post more often. Here's an Indy card I did recently. Thanks for looking.

Cover Samples

I'm working on some cover samples to help beef up my portfolio. Ever since I started doing sketch cards on a regular basis, I haven't had much time to work on anything larger than 2.5"x3.5". This has been very frustrating for me creatively. I've been trying to do some larger pieces here and there, but unfortunately "paying the bills" has had to come first. I'm still working on sketch cards, but I am trying to put together some cover samples to shop around. I am also going to be working with some of the most amazing digital colorists I can find to make them even more special. This is the first sample. I'm posting the original line art and the gray wash for comparison. Thanks for stopping by!

Iron Man (Again)

This bad boy is up on eBay right now. It was kind of hard to let this one go. I actually like it.

Drew Struzan

I can't believe Drew Struzan has retired from illustration. I really don't know what to say about it right now other than "this sucks". Let's just hope he continues to produce art in some capacity if not commercially, for himself and his legions of fans. Here's to you, Drew Struzan. Thanks for the memories!

I am still trying to finish up all of my commissions, and work on my portrait skills. So much ambition, so little time!

Dark Knight Sketch Cards

Contrary to what Robert Downey Jr. and my buddy Avi thinks, I thought The Dark Knight was a pretty shweet flick. Yeah it was a bit long in the tooth, but Heath Ledger could not have been better. To celebrate my love for this film (in particular the Joker) I did a bunch of sketch cards based on the characters (in particular the Joker). Check 'em out!

Also, I'm working on some sketch cards for Marvel Masterpieces III which I will be posting soon. Keep checking back, and tell your friends. And as always, check my ebay store for current art auctions...

Did I mention how much I liked the Joker?

What I'm working on...

I just started working on 100 sketch cards for the Heroes Volume 2 trading card set for Topps. It took a while for NBC to approve my work for some reason, and therefore I'm about a month late getting started on these. I'm also way behind on commissions, so I am not going to be accepting any new commissions for a while. If anyone reading this is waiting for art from me... soon! I promise.

Full Time Freelance!

So, in an act of foolish defiance I went and quit my day job so I could focus on being an artist. Stuff was just piling up on me (Indiana Jones 4 sketch cards), and something had to give. My art is more important in the long run, so hopefully everything will work out. Now that I have no guaranteed income I will of course be pimping more art on eBay, and will have more time for commissions. Please check the link below if interested in purchasing some art.

I am still doing privately commissioned sketch cards for anyone interested. Unfortunately I'm forced to raise my rates to $25 for b/w, and $45 for full color. These prices include shipping ($5 extra for international orders). All sketch cards are done on 110 lb. card stock, traditional trading card size 2.5"x3.5". Paypal preferred. Contact me for details.

LOTR Masterpieces II out now!

The new Lord of the Rings Masterpieces II card set of which I contributed 106 sketch cards to has finally been released by Topps. I've been keeping an eye on ebay and various sketch card related message boards, and have seen a few of my cards have already been pulled. The LOTR fans are rabid collectors, and some of these cards sell for quite a bit. I'm really happy to be a part of all of this, and honored to be able to contribute to the fandom of this legendary series. Next up... Indiana Jones! This is definitely a fanboy's dream come true!
