One of the perks of being at a comic convention early before the crowd gets in is sometimes meeting the artists I grew up with. Two mornings in a row I was fortunate enough to have a conversation with the legendary Howard Chaykin! I had a great time talking to him. He also asked to see my work and was very enthusiastic for it and was very encouraging. I also managed to get some sketches from him, one with The Shadow and some Buck Rogers!! He also said "I am smiling in your picture!"

Truth be told, and I know I'm gonna hear about this, I've never been a big fan of the Three Stooges. I like them. I watched them in TV as a kid but they were never my favorites. I much preferred The Marx Brothers or Abbott and Costello. But when the opportunity arose for me to paint these guys for a comic book cover, I jumped at the chance!! I rarely find myself "clever" but when this idea of breaking the fourth wall popped into my head, I just HAD to do it!! I'm also thrilled that this is seeing print and I was jazzed that a picture of it as well as my name was in the recent issue of Previews! The comic comes out in October by the way.

I still love Psych!! I have since it first premiered. If I remember correctly, the first episode was viewable for free on iTunes and I was instantly hooked. I got my wife onboard quickly and it easily became one of our favorite shows right up until it ended. We still quote it all the time and I think this picture was long overdue. I hope you like it.

I've always loved Space Ghost! The cartoons when I was a little kid, the Steve Rude comic book, and even the cartoon as an adult. I sketch him quite a bit too as you may have noticed. Here is a recent sketch from my book that I thought would be fun to color on my iPhone here and there when I had a moment or two. I still find it amazing that we live in a time where that is even possible!

I thought I posted this weeks ago but apparently I did not. My apologies.
Remember all those 80's movie commissions? Well they are all together in a special print and 100% of the proceeds are going to help many people. This art was done for my church for their summer series and the print will ONLY be available thru me at one of our locations. You don't have to come to service and I am not trying to convert anyone, but if you are able and want one, you have the opportunity. The funds are going to the Real Life Food Pantry which provides fresh, frozen, and non-perishable groceries to families in need. We have provided meals to literally tens of thousands of people regardless of their faith.
Prints will only be $5 !!!
Here is my appearance schedule:
July 17/18 Hunters Creek (mobile campus)
July 23/24 East Orlando
July 30/31 UCF(mobile campus)
August 6/6 Clermont (final weekend of series)
You can find addresses to all campuses and more info at:https://real.life/
