I'm currently coloring a portion of my John Muir comic in prep for San Diego Comic Con (!) and am pretty thrilled with the results. Check out a portion below
My good friend and talented illustrator David Wilson http://www.downpourcreative.com/, just introduced me to the world of pen touch tablets and its blowing my mind. This is piece is 50 percent done (with a Panda City tablet) and so far I'm having a blast.
Recently, Adobe and Marvel teamed up to make a comic telling the origin stories of the super team The Avengers by way of Behance and art students. I entered, and can now officially say I'm one of the four. I don't want to spoil anything but am super excited about my character! Stay tuned to the Adobe Student's Facebook page for updates and previews.
Here are the first three pages of the thesis at 75 percent completion along with one color study.
Here's a piece illustrating the awesomeness of the Fantastic Four's best nemesis; Galactus! I did this entire illustration based off the idea of what it would look like to squeeze Reed Richards.
The thesis is under way! and has been for a while. It's a blast and the comic is starting to take shape.
In character design, a big part of developing a captivating character is establishing a unique silhouette. Lots of design principles come into play here such as straight and curved edges, implied line, use of negative space etc and this set of character sketches is meant to get me out of my comfort zone (details) and start thinking about the overall form. I chose the theme "henchmen" because its goofy and super easy to establish an over the top character. Hopefully I'll have the time to flesh more than one of these guys out.

Here is a piece telling the ballad of the meanest raccoon in the world.

Here is the final of the L.A. piece sans foreground people.
While digging through old work on my hard drive I stumbled across a freelance comic project. Here's a page out of it in color.
Im doing an editorial based on dinosaurs trying to fit into Noah's ark and have two rough drafts from two different angles. I'm also trying out color pencils and love the great sketchy quality so far.
Our most recent project for Professor Goldsmith's character design class was a single panel cartoon and I settled on a bit about tattooing loved ones. Right now the main question is, Is that mom or girlfriend?
Here is an illustration centered around the dangers of surfing and shopping on the internet. I've attached my rough concept piece and my first stab at color. There will be a bunch more as narrowing down my palette is giving me fits.
