so these have consumed my life for the last little while. they are for a final i have, for a story of mine. anyway, it's 4 in the morning, and i don't really have anything else to say.


Sadistic Satyr

A design for school. not completely done, but wanted to post it. hopefully i will finish it.




Casey at the Bat

This is an old baseball card I found... Ok, no it isn't. It is yet another illustration for work. It's for the story/poem "Casey at the Bat." I had never heard about it before, which may amaze some of you. There are actually some people with whom I converse that refuse to believe that someone could go through this maze we call life without ever hearing said poem... What the real question is, is how people go through their lives without listening to Celine Dion everyday.... I mean rock, yeah, hard rock... really, really hard... rock...


Awesome Artist

No new stuff today, but i just found an artist who is famazing. take a look at his site and got to his gallery. I hope it blows your mind like it did mine.



Ok, it was the Ogre

ok, so i really wasn't beat up by a group of hooligans... IT WAS THIS OGRE.... AGAIN!!!! this time in more detail and a more brutal ax/ battle wedge. It was scary, but the ax only nipped my forehead. and this could use a little more time, but i'm pretty done with it.


Not funny

This is what happens when you think you're funny and tell a group of kids to stop smoking at the mall.... let's just say i wasn't hating my insurance company yesterday...



so technically the bears (no not the Chicago...) come back when she is sleeping on their beds, but if i know bears, and i would like to think that i do, they would be a bit more upset if they came back whilst she was sampling their porridge... this girl had it coming and i want her to receive the full blunt of it...

no excuses...

no mercy...


3 Little Hogs

ok, they're not hogs, but they could be. but that's not even the question that needs to be answered here. the question that does is, is the lil hog who's building the house upset because his brothers are A) playing around while he is working, B) they're playing really awful music or C) he has to wear ridiculous, yellow over-alls? you tell me.



Some more bears, just having a picnic. it's what they do, they enjoy it, don't ask me why, we just do, i mean, they just do...


Bear... Oh my

After a glorious weak in California, i decided that a bear would be appropriate. this is actually a study for work, but it fit, so there you go... and i just like bears a whole lot.



is it a boy in a costume, or is it a sick angler luring in children unawares? who knows? well, there is one person that can tell you, and that person is me... but i won't tell you, no, i won't.


Another Alien

this guy is just a barrel of laughs. his sinewy limbs may be the last thing you ever see as you laugh at the irony of life.


Lunch Lady

Woke up in the morning, put on my new plastic glove.
Served some reheated salsbury steak with a little slice of

I got no clue what the chicken pot pie is made of..
Just know everything's doing fine down here in...

Well I wear this net on my head..cuz my red hair is fallin'
out. I wear these brown orthapedic shoes cuz I got a bad
case of the gout.

I know you want seconds on the corn dogs,
but there's no reason to shout.

Everybody gets enough food down here in the magical...



So i was walking around the other day and saw this ogre. i thought i had seen him before, so i confronted him and asked, "Excuse Mr. Ogre Sir, have we met before?" He replied, " Gargle gargle gargle gargle... gargle, gargle-gargle..." i then recalled that the ogre i had previously encountered wore his strap on the opposite shoulder and concluded that this was indeed a different one. an unfortunate mistake, seeing as how our conversation resulted in an axe fight that i ultimately lost. i did however have enough time to complete this digital sketch before he left with my right arm... i shall miss that arm....


Dium Dium

Pronounced "jum jum," is from the water planet Budgitkis. Dium Dium developed a taste for Soda on Earth while posing as the Lochness Monster after losing a bet to his friends. So addicted was he to the soda, that he ripped off his flipper arms and attached these hideous furry ones in order to captain a school ship that regularly visits Earth. The Ships abducts humans in order to teach anatomy and physiology... conveniantly, the Human usually works for a major soda company.

I still need to figure some stuff out painting wise, but figured i would post it anyway.


Ruby Bridges

this is the story of Ruby Bridges (click here if you don't know who she is). she was pretty remarkable. everyday for a year people would picket against her. it's disappointing to think people can act this way.


buildings... FROM THE FRIGGIN FUTURE!!!!

these are just some doodles of mine while my wife has been studying... i know, it's friggin summer. and i couldn't figure out how to turn off the flash on the stupid camera, so some of the black is reflecting a bit. stupid.


George Clooney

Attack of the Cloons Special Edition. but instead of making it worse, i kinda made it better... and it won't be released in theatres.... and it won't be the only available copy until there's an uproar and i have to bring back the old ones for release on DVD... and soon bluray....


George W Bush

3 postings. that's right, 3 postings of George W... i did come to realization about the dude, though, and it's just that: he's just a dude. ya know, people suck at their jobs. it happens. ya know, if sid doesn't make my big mac without pickles, i get a little upset, it's true. but whenever this guy screws up, well, thousands of people dies, but he's doing what he thinks is right.... right? i don't know... this sounded a bit sarcastic, and it was supposed to, but really, this guy isn't that bad... i mean, there's still satan right?


Miley Cyrus/ Hannah Montana

is anyone else as excited for Stadium of Fire as i am? (if you didn't know, she is performing for it. and if you don't know what "stadium of fire" is, a better life you lead....)


Britney Spears

We share the same birthday and both go a little crazy and shave our heads every once and a while. it's a birthday thing... you wouldn't understand....


This is my attempt at the woman we know simply as Chicago's Finest... and Oprah.


Another Dubya

so the person i was doing this for wanted more of a portrait rather than a caricature, so she got this. i'm glad i got to keep a little artsy.


The Original Dubya

This is my grandpa, Warren, the original W. he is the man from whom i received my middle name (my dad's first name as well), and this male patterned baldness i seem to be experiencing.

Tim dubya

this is one of me friends. enjoy.


Jorge Dubya

For a man that i don't necessarily see eye-to-eye with on a lot of issues (i do thank him for the $600 i just received) he was a lot of fun to draw and paint. and for my first attempt at painting a caricature, i feel pretty darn good.

PS if you noticed that this is different from the original post, you get bonus points. i took it down.


Nerdy Competition

so one of my classmates/co-workers/friends/lovers and i engaged in a little (not so) friendly caricaturizing of each other. i hope you enjoy it. if you get an itch, try to guess who it is.... PLEASE! the one on top is obviously me....


Long Black Veil

Listening to Dave Matthews is pretty much an every day occasion for me. So surprises in his music come very few and far between. i can pretty much play every air-instrument to everyone of his songs. but a few years ago, i got all of his live stuff up until that time (i think he has subsequently released a ridiculous amount of live albums) and branched out to his live-only sets, which usually are covers. my favorite cover is entitled "long black veil" which is an old country song which has since been covered by pretty much everyone (see wikipedia). anyway, here are some designs i have been playing around with for the different characters of the story. the woman needs a LOT of work. the emotion just isn't right, but spot on with the source i used.

and here are the lyrics to the song:

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
Someone was killed beneath the townhall light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me
She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me

The judge said son, what is your alibi?
If you were somewhere else, then you wont have to die.
I said not a word, though it meant my life,
For Id been in the arms of my best friends wife.
Oh, she walks these hills in a long black veil.
She visits my grave when the night winds wail.
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me.

Oh, now the scaffold is high, eternity is near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
And sometimes at night when the cold winds blow
In a long black veil she cries over my bones.
She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me.

Oh, she walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me.

Nobody knows. nobody knows, but me.
Nobody knows but me.

Robot... again...

robots are a lot of fun to draw... so i do it...


i did this little dandy for mother's day.


Orphan Works Act

No new work yet, but thought i should post about the Orphan Works Act. This piece of legislation is ridiculous. It takes away the copyright laws of artists and will make us register each and every piece of art we make through private companies. It is absurd. I have found this link (http://capwiz.com/illustratorspartnership/home/) which will send a template message to your respective congressman and senators. There you can also individualize your statement. Please take a moment and oppose this act.


Desert Dude

a character i made while doing a silhouette exercise from my character design class. the background is still a work in progress, but my computer is heading to northern california for some repairs (glad i got the applecare extension). it sucks i have to send it in (no computer for 5-7 days?!?!? WTF?!?!?) but at least it got me to post again and hence the plethora of posts

Random Sketches


These are some characters from my favorite TV show LOST



I know i just posted like a minute ago, but i figured that i may as well post these since i am still up. these are from work. my boss was out sick and i was between assignments so i did a bunch of samples and had a lot of fun doing them. anyway, i hope you like them for i had a lot of fun doing them.
