Howdy blogfolk, I'm on a deadline so I'm posting as I go tonight to help stay motivated.  Pencils are all done, now to vanquish colors!

"Path of the Feather" Pages 2 and 5!

More colors for a short comic I'm doing, which will be part of the book Reality Not Included. Stay tuned!

Dinosaur Spelling Bee

A flyer I made to for the BYU Museum of Paleontology, for a promotional event I'm helping to coordinate.  If you're in the Provo area, come join us!

War of the Worlds (a birthday speedpaint)

Thank you for the birthday wishes everyone!  I'm so blessed to have so many great friends :)

This is a speed-paint from last night, touched up slightly this afternoon.  For my birthday, my fiancee and I (and the Fiasco Crew ;)  ) listened to the old radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds, the idea being to listen to the descriptions and sketch/paint from imagination.  Way fun.

More Gorilllas!

More work for the Oz concept, redone from (link) to better convey Nikko's character.  Sam gave me some more notes on this one, which hopefully I will apply soon

Exploratory Fighter Ship Sculpt

 An exploratory sculpt for a short film I've been doing concept on (these guys).  I'll give you updates as I can, I'm pretty pumped for this one :)

Color Study: Nikko's Anguish

A redesign of the flying monkies from the wizard of Oz, incorporating some of their oft-forgotten backstory.  I kind of like it, maybe I'll come back and finish it eventually, but for now i'm leaving it rough

Cabbage Creature

1/2 man, 1/2 lizard, 1/2 fish, 1/2 cabbage–  a creature so beastly, it defies the laws of fractions!  This one was kind of stream of consciousness lol :)

It's October, and I think I may have monsters on the brain . . . hold on to your poppin'-corns, this may not be the end ;)

"Reality not Included" Illustration– Cowboy Centaur

Lol this one started as a doodle in class from a few months ago, I kind of liked it so I scanned it but never got around to posting.  I came across the scan of the pen drawing this last week and decided to paint it up :)

Along with the short comic I've been working on, this will be my contribution to the BYU comic compilation project "Reality Not Included".  Basically, students from the animation and illustration departments are coming together to make a rad art book to take to a big entertainment industry networking even later this year :)  We can use all the support we can get!  Our basic publishing appears to be covered at this point, but we can still use help.  If you're interested, we are still taking pledges up through October 13th at:

Our Kickstarter Page

Even if it's just a dollar or two, every little bit counts.  And there are great pledge incentives, from copies of the book to original art! check them out on the right side of the page :)
