I’m bad at this regular posting thing. But I have been doing new art, and even updating it here.
Check out some new pieces! Some digital art done with my Wacom Cintiq. Now that the haunted house is over, I hope to get back in the swing of doing these little color studies.
You can also follow me on Instagram for more sketches and more often updates. Also, pictures of my dog, because he is adorable.
You may have seen the sneak peek sketch a few weeks ago and figured out what was coming. A Storm of Swords was my favorite of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. So of course I’ve been super excited for the third Season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. In honor of this new season, I decided to do some Fan Art of Robb Stark. This was drawn in pencil, inked, the finished with copic markers. And of course, I used the wonderful Richard Madden as the model for Robb. He’s done a wonderful job portraying the King in the North.
Back from San Diego Comic Con!
Before I get down to business about the con, I’ve got some new art on the site. Here is just a small taste, so be sure to check around for more.
All right! Back to the con!
First, let me just get this out of the way: it was awesome and everything you will ever dream of. We met some awesome fellow fans and some really cool exhibitors. Everyone was just happy to be there. The good vibes were flying.
So, as some of you may or may not know, I hung out at the portfolio reviews on the first official day of the con (it went well, thanks for asking). While I was sitting there, I thought about how I wish I knew more of what to expect. Each con has their own way of doing these, and sometimes it can be exhausting keeping what’s what in line. I decided to do a write-up of the whole process. I’ve had a few awesome artists give me some helpful advice or materials along the way—shout out to Mike Deodato, you rock!—and if this helps anyone prepare I’ll consider it a job well done.
For some thoughts and musings on the portfolio review scene…. Continue Reading →
Things are in the works. Hopefully big things.
It’s been a busy spring. I designed makeup for and oversaw the work on two productions,and have been working on building up my comic portfolio.
We’ll be heading out to San Diego Comic Con this summer, so stay tuned for accounts of ridiculous adventures. The countdown has begun.
So, since you all have been so patient waiting for me to update, I have a lot of new art. Be sure to check out the traditional, digital, and fan art sections.
But since tonight is the season finale of Game of Thrones, here’s Cersei Lannister. Because who doesn’t love a dangerous, hot blond?
More Hunger Games Fan Art!
In honor of Oscar night, I decided to draw Katniss Everdeen in her interview dress. Suzanne Collin’s described it as being made with gem stones, and looking like fire, so I took it and ran. I wanted her to look pretty, but not sexy. Katniss says she can’t pull off sexy. But I still wanted it to function as a dress, too, and not be this wispy thing. Gem stones are not wispy.
So, the girl on fire dress from the Hunger Games.
Buffy and Faith, from Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This was a commission for a friend, but I really enjoyed putting this piece together. He wanted the two women and somehow incorporating ying and yang. So I took that and ran with it, having Buffy and Faith themselves being the symbols, and mirroring it with the sky and the fog.
And Happy Holidays.
This is the winning idea for my holiday contest. Kelly suggested Angel and puppets, and having been on a puppet kick since seeing the Muppet Movie, I couldn’t resist.
So we have Angel, surrounded by a crack team of puppets: Wesley, Fred, Cordelia, Lorne, Gunn, and of course Spike.
Joss Whedon is a genius, but the puppet episode is just brilliant. So I will piggy back on his brilliance to wish you a Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a wonderful new year.

Who doesn’t love “Hunger Games” fan art? First, Haymitch Abernathy. While I think Woody Harelson will do wonderful in the movie, I always pictured Haymitch looking a little more like Robert Downy Jr. I wanted to draw Haymitch inside the fence of District 12, with his alcohol in hand. Still strong, but haggard. Despite the wreck he’s become, he’s still determined to get Katniss through the Hunger Games alive. Second, Finnick Odair. Finnick is my favorite character. I drew him on a beach in District 4, trident in hand. You can’t not love Finnick, and his appearance in the Quarter Quell is my favorite. Finally, Alma Coin. I won’t say much about Coin, for those who haven’t read “Mockingjay” yet. I always pictured Coin looking a little like Sigourney Weaver. I think she would be the perfect choice.

I did promise there would be more “Hunger Games” Fan Art, and here it is. Effie Trinket, Primrose Everdeen, and Cinna. And Buttercup. I couldn’t draw Prim without Buttercup.
To me, Effie is the very picture of propriety. To convey that, I put her in Victorian inspired clothing. And I wanted her pink hair to be PINK. I never saw it as anything but bright pink. She’s in front of the Justice Building, doing her thing. Get ready for the reaping.
Which brings us to sweet little Prim. She had to be some one that was universally loved, that Katniss would give her life to save. She is the reason that Katniss volunteers for the Hunger Games in the first place. I hope the innocence I was trying to capture shows through. And that Buttercup is so ugly he’s cute.
Cinna. I did a couple of sketches of Cinna before I settled on this one. His gold eyeliner is my actually eyeshadow, so it’s very reflective in person. I placed him in front of the Capitol skyline, match in hand, because he’s the real spark that sets it all burning to the ground.
You can find more Hunger Games art in the fan art section.
Hello everyone on this rainy Wednesday—at least on the east coast. This unseasonal weather has definitely not gotten me in the Christmas spirit. So I’ve decided to draw some Christmas themed fan art. What kind of fan art, you may ask? Well, that is entirely up to you!
Head on over to the facebook page, and the person with the best idea will get a picture drawn. It must be awesome, and preferably from a fandom I enjoy, definitely one I’m familiar with.
Also, more Hunger Games Fan art will be appearing shortly. In the meantime, for more Hunger Games art, and other fan art, check out the fan art page.
