Munny Customs


These are my custom vinyl toys. The sculptures were created with various Kidrobot DIY Vinyl figures. I used Super Sculpy to sculpt on top of the form and then they were painted with acrylic paints.

Heat Movie Poster


I was inspired by the posters of the Alamo Drafthouse and I wanted to create a poster for my favorite movie, Heat. This is my first poster design and my first time trying to work with a limited color scheme. I also did the poster for more practice drawing figures and faces.

Samurai Color Sketch

I roughed in colors to get an idea the direction I am going in. The next step is to apply the colors more cleanly and confidently.

Samurai Inked Drawing

Finally finished inking the Samurai drawing. It is 11" x 51"






Poster Design Contest

I recently entered a poster design contest (or was forced to enter it) for a chance to win tickets to the Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks concert. The contest was run by the Plain Dealer. I got 2nd place and won 2 tickets (a $300 value) and my mother (whom, I entered the contest for) will get to meet one of the singers.

Anyways, here is my entry for the poster design contest. I am hoping the Plain Dealer publishes them in their paper. Will post if they do.


This was my first time trying to combine scanned texture into a digital piece. I like the result and will continue to do so in future work. The faces are marker drawings (which I allowed filled with a watercolor texture in PS). The blue background and paint splatters are watercolors, and the brown/yellow texture is paper that I stained with a tea bag.

Samurai Tight Sketch Completed

Completed the tight sketch phase of my Samurai Triptych. Next I need to trace it onto a bristol board, and ink it. I imagine that will be quite intensive. Below is a picture of each piece of the triptych (each will be 11 x 17", as well as a picture of the whole piece. I am also chipping away at a custom mego style figure, which I will post some pics of after he gets some pants.

Samurai Update 3

Its been a busy week with a lot going on for me. Combined with that, I also got slightly sidetracked playing Arkham City (which I bought about 3 months ago, but finally had a chance to play it and it was as awesome as I hoped). I really only play about 1 to 2 games a year. I used to play a lot more but I don't have the time anymore. Next on my list: Zelda: Skyward Sword.


Anyways, here is an update on the middle piece of the triptych I am working on. Almost there. This is going to be the most detailed piece I have ever done. The nice part is that it is getting me back into the swing of things. I need to build a lightbox soon because they are ridiculously expensive and much cheaper to make. So hopefully that goes well.

Thanks for reading.
