This is an album cover I was asked to do by a friend stepping into the music business. I took his idea and threw in my own idea of doing a play or rather an all out recreation (for better or worse) of a page from the classic 'In The Night Kitchen' by Maurice Sendak.
I really wanted to try and finish up with watercolor but it probably would have turned out to be more a disaster so I held off until I get some more practice in and went digital. The original page it came from is at the bottom.
His name is Josh Everhart and he has some fun stuff, you can check him out here http://josheverhart.bandcamp.com/

A sculpt of Sqwar I did a while back. He has since lost some elements of this design but still relatively close to what he is now in my story. He got pretty mangled in the firing ( cracked arm, feet, everything lol ) and I never could get him repaired fully so he ended up another unfinished project that I would like to revisit with better luck.
He's about 8 inches tall and heavy as a brick literally lol.

I've been using my Wacom tablet pretty heavily lately for comic layouts, which has resulted in me feeling a little detached from the traditional pencil and paper rough work. So I took a break and messed with this project I've been wanting to do of Greek mythology inspired cards. This is Hestia goddess of the hearth.

Been sick lately so I've only been doing some light quick stuff. I think a story where Lucien meets the Snorks is absolutely necessary haha.
Family doodles, I did a funny sketch of my cousin for his 29th Birthday but didn't get a chance to scan it in. I'll snag it from him later.
