Baby Sleeping Portrait Study

This piece is a study from one of my own photographs for a painting I hope to get to one day. Is it done with charcoal or is it digital?!

Interviewed on Kapow Comic Book Show

A little while back when Image Comic’s Topcow head Matt Hawkins was in at Kings Comics, the Kapow Comic Book Show did an interview with me about my comic book art (and hence on the 2nd half of the below youtube video):

African Animals Nursery Mural Painting

I recently completed this large African Animals Nursery Mural Painting (Acrylic on Canvas – 0.76 x 2.0m (2.5 x 6 foot). ). There are 50+ African animals in this large painting that needed to be bright, for a childs nursery and done in a weekend (usually dislike acrylic and stay away from but needed it to dry quickly).

The studies were made from my trip to Africa:

Hellboy at the Cemetary – Portrait Oil Painting

Really enjoyed reading Hellboy / BPRD so thought I’d take a crack at an oil painting verison of the character. Also wanted to pay a little more attention to the background on this piece than some of my other comic painting attempts.

Yoda on Dagobah – Oil Painting

I wanted to push a comic style painting a little more impressionistic and why not give everyone’s favorite Star Wars Jedi Master, Yoda, the treatment. This whole painting was done primarily with a just a palette knife.

Catwoman Crouching 01 Portrait Oil Painting

Recently completed “Catwoman Crouching 01” Oil Painting. This was the first time I’d tried a female comic character and I find them a little harder to do then their male counterparts.
