Cons and Free Comic Book Day!

In the last two weeks, I have been doing some fun stuff! I was invited to show my work at the 2nd Annual Montgomery County Comic Con. I had a great time meeting new people and even did a panel. The panel was on ways to make money while being an artist. Here are a few pics!

Then this weekend, I did Free Comic Book Day at Amalgam Comics. I had lots of fun and met new friends!!

Monsters and More!!!

Last year I was introduced to the fine folks at A few emails later, I was able to start work on the "Monster Roster" section of their publication, Issue 6, Vol 2. The idea was to flesh out the skeleton of a long dead sea creature from a "Red Sonya" picture. Here is the illustration from the "Red Sonya" picture.

I studied many vintage fishing illustrations to prepare for this. I don't think they helped all that much. Still, I had a good time making this monster. It is a mixed media illustration, mostly acrylic paint and ink pen.

Also, because all of you seem to be enjoying the first Marilyn Monroe series, here is number 3 of Series 1.  Please note another series is on the way.

Another week in and out! What did I do?

It's the end of the month, and what did I get done this week?  Well, outside of reading...I finished an 8 in. x 8 in. caricature portraiture of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  Also, thanks to the generosity of its owner, I was able to get a better photo of a recently finished painting--you might recognize it.  As always, prints are available.

In the Last Week!

What is a week in the life of the average artist like? I don't know... Still, here is what mine was like. Last Friday I hung out with the great folks of "Why You Should Vlog" and I had a great time as always! Here is a preview of the first video and a preview of the next to come!

Later that weekend, I made a very special delivery! I finally finished a 17 in. x 17 in. acrylic painting to its new owner. This is an Impressionist style painting of Sherlock Holmes & John Watson at night called, "Les Lampes à gaz fantomatique echouent à vingt pieds."  

On Saturday I went with a group to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The "Beyond Caravaggio" exhibit was one of the best things I was able to see. I saw lots of wonderful things, like a possible family member from arts past!!!

Me and my dad on the train!

Hanging with Mr. Caligula!

Look at my terrible posture! Me and my long-lost cousin!

As this week starts, I will be working on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Prince. So keep reading!
