I also love comics and I have too many artists that I like, but I am a huge fan of Adam Hughes, Amanda Conner, Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, J. Scott Campbell and Olivier Coipel just to name a few.

Personal Quote: Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and to hear the lamentations of the women.


Christmas Cats
12" x 16.5" on bristol board using fluid acrylics.  Something a little different.  I couldn't quite get this done in time for Christmas, just finished it tonight.  Hope you guys dig it!  It is greeting card size so if I res down, it will fit a 5 by 7 card with a quarter inch bleed.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and happy new year to all of you!  I hope 2017 brings everyone joy happiness and success!
I am currently writing and illustrating my own children's book.  The first four pages of line art are finished and I have posted them on my art blog.  Overall I have more than 30 illustrations to create.  This project should take me at least a year to complete.  I will post the finished illustrations here on my deviantart page as well.  The work is quite different from my bird and nature paintings but I hope you guys dig them.  I am still undecided on whether or not I will color the illustrations traditionally or digitally.

Here is the link to my art blog and the first four pages of line art:
