When beginning an illustration project, I usually start with a prompt of some sort. For this process, I’ll use my work with the well known nursery rhyme “Jack Be Nimble”. This project began as a exercise at an illustrator’s intensive with Kristen Nobles, art director at Candlewick Press, but I won’t go into that (if you get the chance, take her class!). Instead, I’ll share with you the steps in how I create my illustrations.

I’m excited to be included in a great group show this Fall! My piece, “The Shawmut”, was selected to be in the 2014 SCBWI Illustrators Exhibit at the Washington State Historical Society, showing from November 19 – January 18. More details to follow!
Check out THE art show of the year in LA this Friday (October 3rd) at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery! Based on the comic book parodies of Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig (by Tom Neely, Scot Nobles and Igloo Tornado) – Henry & Glenn Forever and Ever – the gallery will showcase great work by a variety of artists, including yours truly. Go check it out! I will also have giclée prints available at the show.
Recently, I had the chance to work with the Seattle Times on Health Rocks, a NIE (Newspapers In Education) publication for kids, creating original spot illustrations relating to the five senses.
Check out the rest of the illustrations online or pick up a copy at Bartells Drugstores statewide (Washington). A selection of illustrations are below the cut.
New art print available this Friday and Saturday at the Greenwood Artwalk! Come get your arts and walk home with arts. Plus culture!
This troll doesn’t know the internet nor own a computer. He lives under a bridge and his smell is more offensive than his looks. Sumptuous 11″x14″ giclée prints on German etching paper available!
It’s been busy here at my studio this summer! I’ve been working with the wonderful folks at Plexipixel creating game art assets for HTML 5 games, and Woot Studio from the Great White North put together the Platformer Game Starter Kit (scroll down to “Free Game Art” for the art packs) with the art. I created the characters and animations for the following themes – Zombie, Day of the Dead, Fantasy, Gothic, & Underwater (Outer Space & Steam Punk were illustrated by the talented Laura Goldstein). The latest creations are the Backgrounds & Items, where I worked on environmental assets for Day of The Dead, Underwater, Gothic, and Fantasy.
I’ve posted some examples below.
If you are interested in learning and creating HTML 5 games, go download the Platformer Game Starter Kit at Woot Studios. The best part is that it’s FREE!
Many thanks goes to Vickyr Tamaru at Plexipixel for the opportunity to work on this awesome project!
My first children’s magazine illustration! The fine folks at Humpty Dumpty magazine hired me from a postcard I sent out. It’s out now!
