Sword and Planet

Been reading Edgar Rice Burrough's Mars books. I'm so inspired! And so excited that Andrew Stanton is directing the movie.

This one is real pen & ink, not one of my digital fakeries.

Mouse Guard

Comic Con was a blast this year! This is the first time in years I've gone as a fan not as an artist hawking his wares at a table. I saw many great things, but one of my favorites was David Petersen's Mouse Guard.

I read through it on the plane ride back and it was so good I'm looking forward to more. If you like good stories and good art I highly recommend it.

Flapper quick study

It's not often I use Painter, and even less often for quick studies. But I wanted to capture some thick buttery brush strokes in this sketch.


A quick little castle painting. Tried to focus on atmosphere and lighting.

Cursed Village

This was the original sketch, done while in some boring meeting.

Free Sword

All you have to do is pull it out of the stone.

Night version.

Daidoji Chitose

Samurai are always cool. This is one I did a while back for Legend of the 5 Rings.
