Due to social distancing, self quarantine and other factors, I'm going to do my best to create some live streams on my YouTube channel. These will be family friendly and hopefully fan driven explorations of drawing. I'm pretty open and interested in hearing from you all at home. To get involved - subscribe to my YouTube Channel and click on the notification button so you don't miss out on a live stream. I haven't done live streams before, so it will be a little bit of a learning curve. They may not all be available for playback afterward depending on how things go.
Latest YouTube Video Premieres tonight! Time-Lapse Warm Up Sketch of Seafaring Strange Guy with his Seagull
Hopefully you've been keeping up to date with my recent videos. Today brings the total up to five warm up sketches. I plan on continuing them or possible changing gears a little at some point. The speed drawings will not go away, but I may sprinkle some how to videos in between geared towards people who want to make comics or people who are interested in seeing the nuts and bolts of making comics as well as tips on drawing!
Please, comment below, on YouTube or on my Instagram to let me know what you think. I cannot create a community without hearing feedback. Until then, I'll continue to create content based on my own interests and hope to hear from you all. Thank you for taking your time and spending it with me and my artwork!
A new YouTube video is now live! Check it out. Thank you to Wombat.the.mad for suggesting the subject matter to help celebrate my one thousand followers on instagram! Enjoy!
Last week I uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel. I know its been a long time coming, but I'll try to keep posting new content. This week I sit down and draw out my very first D&D character, Stumbleduck. This is the first time I put pencil to paper and figured out what he actually looks like. I like the way he came out.
I already have a new video ready that I will be posting Monday at 4pm EST. Thanks for watching!
Higgins Inks asked me to participate in Inktober 2019 as part of their team. They also asked me to create a video on being creative. I chose to tackle the age old problem of creator block!
I had a great time at Terrificon last weekend. The fans, artists and vendors came out in storm! Big thanks to my friends Franco and Mitch Hallock for inviting me into the Aw Yeah Kid's Fun Zone. Drawing for kids and exposing all ages readers to my content is one of my favorite things to do. What do I like even more!? Encouraging kids to draw and thanks to Mark and Chris Mariano I got to do just that!
Shout out to Jamar Nicholas! It's always fun to have amazing people sit next to you at conventions and I was lucky enough to sit in between the Mariano Brothers and Jamar. I spent the whole weekend talking about art and technique with Jamar. I also had a great time discussing vintage game consoles with him. It brings me back to my days of podcasting with Brian LeTendre on the segment Cartridgecade which was part of Secret Identity Podcast.
Here's hoping next year, Terrificon will be just as filled with fun!
Today I posted about a book that I worked on in 2010 called, Curse of the Werewhale. I was aproached by my friends Chris Gugliotti and Jason Snair, two artists who had teamed up to create the blog, Artgasm. Both decided that they were going to create an anthology of stories that revolved around the legend of the werewhale (inspired by the well known werewolf).
On my Instagram feed, one of my followers asked how to get a copy. I am happy to say that you can still order the books as print on demand by clicking here. This link will take you to the publishing website LuLu. Enjoy and if you happen to own a copy, visit me at my next comic convention. Follow me on social media or visit my website to find my latest appearances.
A few images from the story that I wrote and drew.

Last weekend was New York Comic Con and I was lucky enough to get down there for two days to pick up a few books and have some fun with friends and colleagues. As usual NYCC was a great time, but this was one of the biggest years for pushing my artwork. My images were well received and the feedback was great. Below, you can review a few of my new portfolio pieces. If you are interested in hiring me for an illustration job, please feel free contact me.
