Plumkins

Sugar-Plum-Pumpkin-plumkinsHere are some fun little critters that I call the Plumkins! Nothing better than flying purple pumpkins with fairy wings and glowing eyes. This idea came to mind when I tried to order a Pumpkin Pie Blizzard from Dairy Queen and stumbled over my words, saying “Plumkin Plie Blizzard.” You never know where the great ideas might come from!

Samurai Tinman

Samurai Tinman Wizard of Oz Cartoon

I had an idea for a new take for the Tinman from The Wizard of Oz. What if the story took place in China and he was an old samurai warrior? Even a samurai needs a heart… <3

Rocket Raccoon & Groot Fan Artwork

I really enjoyed the new Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy movie! I think that whole comic storyline has a great cast of characters. Of course, the two coolest characters would have to be Rocket Raccoon and Groot! I have been working on drawing and painting this illustration on and off during my free time between work and freelance projects. Finally had a chance to finish it tonight. I have been playing around with more textures, to give my images a more unique look. Enjoy!

Cartoon Alien Critters

Cartoon Aliens & MonstersIt was time to let loose a little and just have fun drawing some silly, zany characters. I decided to draw some cartoon alien critters after being inspired by the show, Wander Over Yonder. I think what makes them work well is a medley of shapes, sizes, and proportions- to keep it interesting. I have always loved aliens and all things SciFi. I really have fun doodling this, and now it’s making me think about illustrating a silly children’s book about aliens. Maybe a counting book? We’ll see…

Snowy Owl Book Illustration Artwork

I have been admiring snowy owls recently. They are beautiful, extraordinary birds. I just had to draw one, and what better way to illustrate one, than in flight with the moonlight on his back.

Cute Cartoon Little Dragon Character DesignI’ve been sketching a lot of dragons recently, and this is one of the cute little dragon characters that came out of it. I went ahead and took my sketch and painted it in Photoshop. Still trying to think of a perfect name for this little guy.

Poker Related T-shirt Illustrations

 

A new client is starting a clothing line that is themed around poker. He asked for me to come up with some cool ideas and design some illustrations for his first tees. Here they are… One is a Photoshop painted t-shirt design, and the other 3 are more basic vector designs (for cheaper printing options).

Comicon Scrapbook Product

ConQuest Character Design Creation & LogoThis is a cute, vector fantasy knight character design, logo design, and packaging/layout design I created for Con*Quest comicon journals. They had a great idea to make comicon and event scrapbooks, to put all your memories into. I love the idea and everything came together very well.

Conquest Scrapbook Pages Design ArtworkAnd here’s a collage of some of the pages and how the book looked in the end. They are getting a great response and the popularity is moving quickly! I really loved being in charge of the whole development of this entire project: from cartoon character development, to logo creation, to page illustrations, to final layout and presentation.

For these, the client wanted simple 2-color designs, that looked like a rum label, hot sauce, and a restaurant. I had fun getting creative for him on these.
