Updates.


My new year's resolution was to post more and maintain this blog better. It is still a goal of mine, but I am still super busy teaching and coaching, that if I do have spare time, it is usually used for sleeping and/or drawing. I did another cover for Damn Handsome and the Birthday suits, and I will post that as soon as I can.

The book is finalized and has been on sale for awhile. I am working on spreading the word on it. Any suggestions?

Here is a minor project I am chipping away at for fun. I was in 3rd or 4th grade when pokemon first came out. It is an extremely addictive game and one of my favorites. After finishing the book and scrambling to get all of my teaching plans figured out, I just wanted to do something fun. I decided to do some fan-art. I am normally against doing fan-art because it is somewhat un-original. So i tried to put my own spin on these characters, while trying not to deviate much from their original design. I am trying to draw them in my own style, whatever that may be. I also have plans to expand on this drawing (like a triptych x 10, where all of the drawings will combine to form a huge drawing) while I am tossing around ideas or have a creative block, or just want to have a little fun.

I am currently mulling over some ideas for what my next book will be. I am thinking this summer I am going to do a wordless book. I had the idea of doing a dinosaur book, just because who doesn't like drawing dinosaurs, but I think I want to do some surreal and different than what I have been doing. Maybe some sort of web-comic. I want to do a wordless book while I research my next written book (possibly an illustrated history for the Mothman or the Ghost and the Darkness). So we will see where it all goes.
