Crimson Short One

Image
I got a teaser from a sculptor in the UK last night. And it was awesome! Several weeks back, a fellow artist on DeviantART contacted me in regards to my Red Dwarf picture. I was so flattered and intrigued about having someone interpret my work into another medium. I sent her what I had and then waited. It was worth it! I can't wait to see more and now the wait is going to be so much harder!




Update 9/2/11: Caitlin generously shared another head shot! Check out Rimmer!





Update 9/4/11: And in quick succession, here's the Cat!

Vworp Vworp Game Board

Image
So I thought I would give a peek at what I did for the second issue of Vworp Vworp. I actually did it twice due a bit of miscommunication. It happens. There was no malice or anger involved it was just one of those things. I was just really happy to be thought of to work on the project.


So here is the board as it will appear in the magazine. Mostly. Some type and fonts may have been changed but otherwise here it is.


While I have not seen the other boards to the game, I think four parts make up the entire game board, I did find this glimpse on the web.




Here is what I originally did. I have to admit to being totally unaware of what  a "Weatabix board" was. Probably because I grew up in New Jersey and not the UK.


And finally, here is a bonus. After getting the news that I would have to revise my initial design, I had a happy accident when the game play layers were turned off. I thought it made a decent desktop. Enjoy!

Eighth Doc Re-Colored

Image
So, after constantly reading about the Doctor Who exhibition in London and seeing lots and lots of stuff from the exhibit on line and such, I was surprised to see this picture of the Eighth Doctors costume from said exhibit.



Now, many of you know that I have a fondness for the Eighth Doctor, if not his sole TV movie outing, but I was, to be honest, completely shocked to see the colors in this photo. Some of you may not know that I have a problem seeing greens and that may explain some of this, but I could have SWORN that his outfit was shades of gray like I have depicted. No body has called me out on that fact either so it makes me wonder if I am alone in my thinking. Let me know. Chime in. I want answers!!!

It was actually pretty easy to duplicate my file and change some colors in my Photoshop layers to make the adjustments, and it actually looks pretty good. But then again, I have that green problem! So for the completest out there, here is a modified version of Paul McGann as the E…

Harry Potter

Image
If you noticed, I have done two other posts about Harry Potter. Both were iPhone paintings and not done with, ...................well, ......."my style". My wife Mindy and my son have been watching Harry Potter movies almost non-stop for about a month. They LOVE them! I like most of them too. My wife has read and re-read the books as well while I have not read one since the first one. Not because I didn't like it. Just the opposite. I read it before they started making the movies and when I saw the first one, I walked out disappointed because I had lost all the moments of suspense since it was a faithful representation of the book. I decided that I would wait for the movies first from that point on. Now, you can argue that I didn't get everything out of the movies that I could have since the books are so much denser, but being a visual person, I would rather experience the visual interpretation first, and then get more out of it after reading the books. I am very gla…

It's finally ready! Several months ago, I was graciously contacted by Colin Brockhurst to contribute  to the second issue of Vworp Vworp. A Doctor Who magazine that is packed to the gills with awesome!! It was a lot of fun to do and I hope to be able to contribute something new and original for future issues. I can't wait to get mine!!

Hurricane Who!

Image
So I have finally taken the plunge and purchased my table for the upcoming Hurricane Who convention here in Orlando. This will be my first time venturing out into the public to push my nonsense onto the masses. Well, I hope the masses. Maybe a few. Maybe my wife will stop by my table. Anyway, it's from November 4th to the 6th and information can be found here:

I will have several 11 x 17 prints for sale (remember, DON'T BUY THE STOLEN BROWN BACKGROUND!) as well as original sketches used to create the pics seen here on the blog and even a 50 page book of my work! I will post updates about the progress and the preparation for the show. So by all means, come to the show if you are in the Orlando area!! It's a great time to be in Florida then too!!



Portraits of ............me.

Image
You just can't go to art school and work in art studios without getting your face rendered at least once. Sure, you may have had the assignment of a self-portrait, but I am talking about having your cheekbones lovingly rendered by your peers while you are in a meeting, working at your desk, at lunch, what ever. I have been lucky (?) enough to have been captured more than once and have been very blessed to have been given the original as well.

My good friend Ryan was a master of drawing classmates back at Ringling. Instead of drawing the model, on most occasions, he would be drawing the kids across the room from himself. He always kept a quickly rendered piece of crap of the model to flip to should the teacher be strolling by. Ryan also did very unforgiving caricatures. To block him from drawing me, I would almost always sit right next to him. It was too obvious then to keep turning his head and not get caught. When Ryan finally did get caught in front of the whole class was one of…
