The Great Decapitator

Here's a drawing I started over a year ago. I began inking before really considering the composition (a bad habit I've been trying to kick) and, discouraged, set it aside for many months. Finally I came back to it and finished what I started. I learned a lot and I'm happy with parts of it, but not so much the sum of 'em all.

Demon Fan Sixty Nine At Demon Mail Dot Com

Yet another demon head, this time with a naughty angelic passenger. This was another that I initially posted with digital coloring but recently added watercolor to the original.

Donkey watercolor

Here's a donkey I painted for a design project Megan was working on. First image is the original, which turned out looking a bit too 'fantasy'. I photoshopped it a bit and handed it over for megan's project (second image).

My latest watercolor

My latest watercolor also happens to be somewhat of a leaping demon (screamin'/full of semen). An exercise in limiting myself to 3 tubes of color (red, yellow, blue).

Leaping demon

I've posted this before with digital coloring, but I'm not sure if I've posted it since I painted it with watercolors. In any case, here's a demon leaping up with an art nouveau circle pattern that was a bitch to draw.

A few outliers

Here are a few images from last year I believe. The first is a pretty crude triptych of a wizard procession approaching a strange castle, inspired by some Clark Ashton Smith or Lord Dunsany stories i'm sure (ink on cedar panel). The next is a drunken sketch I did in illustrator using my wacom tablet. The third is an illustrator sketch I did over the Pillars of Creation.

Here are a few


Some 'projects' here for ya. First is a logo I did for Peter's band Bloodmoon. Second is a poster I painted for a radical show they had on a mountain in SLO. Since the poster was a composite of two separate paintings (text and mountains), I decided to not let the mountains go to waste and paint a background for 'em (last image).

Some fuck-arounds from the past year.

Clumping these fuck-arounds into one post because they weren't meant to be. Some of them are drunken sketches, fungal ink-blasts or palates that I decided to paint over. Give em a whirl and try not to hate 'em.

Linoleum and rubber block prints

First print is a linoleum block print inspired by Goethe's 'The Sorrows of Young Werther', in particular the theme of a specific location's ability to conjure emotions. The second is a rubber block print of an elf, inspired by elves. I apologize for the underlined text, I simply don't know how to get rid of it.

New watercolor

This started out as a test page. I sat down to try out three high quality pigments I had just got and ended up getting sucked in. Beautiful, expensive, tiny tubes of paint.
