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.

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).
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.
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).
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.
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.
