Loony


Working in a small, dark room without any contact with the outside world I can relate to this guy. Another image from the Fishing for Terrorist card game.

Cottage Fish


I had to take a month off from the fish. I love sushi and all but that was a lot of fish. But now with renewed vigor they are back. Don't ask me where this guy came from but I have been thinking about drawing a fish with a building on his (or her) back for awhile.
I am currently working on compiling and laying out the first "Fish Book" (working title) which I hope to have completed sometime in the next month. Stay tuned.

What I draw for fun.


The finished piece for the sketch I posted a few weeks ago. I call it "Shoggoth in a Box".

Here's the pdf file of the newspaper that the article on me appears in. Check page 4.

Back from GenCon...

Well I'm back from GenCon and trying to get back into the swing of things just in time for me to get on a plane and go to Atlanta for DragonCon next week. Yeehaw!
GenCon was awesome, easily my best show yet. I had a great time talking to folks, selling some art, and meeting some of my clients that I know only through emails. The highlights of the trip in no particular order:
1) I got to hang out with Jeremy Mohler and Sarah Frary. Friends I made while at Wizard World Texas last year and have kept up with since. Along with my ol' pal Matt, the four of us shared a room. Late night/early morning Beerfest was awesome. You guys rock. Hard.
2) I met artist/writer/publisher guy Mark Smylie. Very cool cat, awesome artwork.
3) I got to play Starcraft 2! Hell yeah. It will easily be my all time favorite video game once it comes out which is supposedly sometime in 2008.
4) I got a genuine hug from one of my all-time favorite artists and all around cool dudes Steve Prescott. You rock my man, we'll definitely have to catch a beer and watch some football sometime.
5) I got 4 new pages done for my collaborative sequential sketchbook (check my website in the MISC gallery if you haven't seen it yet) with pages by Sarah Frary, Steve Prescott, Steve Ellis, and Mark Smylie took it back to Jersey with him to throw down on a page himself. This book is kicking much ass. Seriously. Thanks to all you guys who have participated. Much love.
6) I got to hang out with Larry Wickman and the gang at WEGS. The game was great fun even though (as usual) I was rolling like shit throughout. It was great to see and meet you guys!
7) I got a brand-new, spiffy copy of Red Dragon Inn which is my first box cover job! It really gave me a thrill seeing it and the promo banner while tables of people were playing all around. The fellas at Slugfest say that it was a big hit and they sold lots of copies. Suh weet.
8) Did I mention I got to play Starcraft 2?!
All in all a great show. Thanks goes out to everyone who came by and said howdy. We'll definitely see ya next year!

GEN CON INDY!!


I will be in Indianapolis this weekend peddling my wares at Gen Con! This will be my 5th Gen Con and after missing last year's I'm really excited to get back! I'll have a bunch of new stuff to check out, some new prints available and I have a few new pieces in the art show (that I haven't even shown here on my blog)! I'm excited to catch up with some old friends and actually hang out and network with some clients that I've never actually seen in person (the interweb rules)! Also there are a few products that will be debuting this weekend that have my stuff in/on them that I'm eager to see. It looks to be a great show! Of course I'll be taking my camera and will TRY to take some pictures to post here but we'll see how that goes...
So if you're in the Indy area this weekend come on by the artist alley and say howdy!

Me-Before-Braces Fish

Fe, fi, fo, fum...


Another one from the plane ride.

Creepy Hand.


Another one I freaked out the girl sitting next to me on the plane with. It's for a super secret project I'm working with my buddy Loren with. Not super secret, obviously, cause I'm posting it here.

Shoggoth sketch


A shoggoth sketch I did while on the plane going out to the east coast last week. I definitely think I freaked the girl out sitting next to me. Fun stuff.
