digital illusrations?????

oh no he didn't!! some of you might say?? Yes, I know... its a bit of a change but I've had a little while to do some experimenting and try something new. By no means am I switching to paint this way but as some of you may know, I am starting to venture into doing my own comic book. I want to be able to handle coloring in my own pieces. It's something I have been meaning to do for quite a while now, and i am finished talking about it so now I am and DOING it! Its taking me a little while to get something together since I am not a writer, and I tend over analyze everything I do about a hundred times over. So, please bear with me and I will have something solid for you and the rest of the world this summer. (in time for Comic Con!!!!)

{Please note} This piece is totally experimental, being my 1st attempt. (please forgive me)haha I just finished it today, but I wanted to share it on here first. i saved it for the web so it is a bit pixelated. many more soon to come...

Here is a drawing that got rejected for a tattoo i was going to do. The sheet in the second image was drawn in photoshop but i still liked the sketch. We went in a totally different direction, but I still like the drawings. I'm sure I will use them for something else.

This last weekend i took part in a show about comedians over at Gallery 1988. The show was a great success and there was an amazing turnout. This was that piece I made for the show of one of my favorite comedians/actors, Jerry Seinfeld!! this was a lot of fun and I hope do do a few more portraits soon.

The Amor Fati

Hey everyone! First of all i just wanted to say happy new year! It's been a crazy year and I am sad to see it come to an end. I hope this year is just as full of excitement and adventure. i wanted to take a moment and thanks for everyone who reads this and had been buying my artwork, you make this all worthwhile. This year i hope to bring even more to the table. Thanks and enjoy!!

I was recently asked to be part of a great magazine composed of many talented artists and writers from the Los Angeles area, called The Amor Fati. The people were really great to work with and i was very excited to be part of this book. This 3rd issue is about secrets and really does fit with the theme of a lot of my work. they used a good number of some of my older pieces which worked out great. thanks again guys!!

It is a little hard to find this book, since it is only available at local area bookstores, but they make it really easy to purchase on their site.
here is some info on the mag taken from their site...

AMOR FATI is a quarterly digest featuring the works of Los Angeles writers, artists, and creatives. In a city of disparate parts, our aim is to create an active platform for organic and challenging exchange that is not only reflective of this generation but brings a collective voice to an anomalous city.

here are a couple pics i took of my work in the mag.
