Some new art! Three new(ish) copic marker sketches of some original characters. I love Adam Hughes’s convention sketches, and you can see these are heavily inspired by him (except maybe with a little less cleavage). Like this kind of art? Check out my traditional gallery for more.

For anyone in the Bucks County/Philly area this weekend, come on out to Bucks County Community College’s first Anime con!
For the first time EVER I will be selling prints of some of my more popular pieces–including, but not limited to, Hunger Games, Marvel, Game of Thrones, and Jay and Silent Bob.
Check out the event here:
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.
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. For more Hunger Games Fan art, and other fan art, check out the Fan Art Page.
Official, it’s spring now. It’s still very cold out.
HOWEVER, baseball opens in less than two weeks. That is the official mark of spring.
I have some new work up. A couple make up pieces, and a new copic marker drawing. I have a lot of art that is almost ready for public consumption, so keep your eyes peeled. But not really, because that’s kind of gross.
Excuse me while I get a little philosophical.
I’ve recently expanded my repertoire of art supplies to include markers. Now I will admit I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to my art supplies. In art classes I favored oil paints and charcoal and pen and ink, with a few brief forays with chalk pastel. I liked the tools I was familiar with. They were the tools of the masters. I always thought, growing up, that markers and crayons were for little kids. I was absolutely wrong about both of them.
I acquired a set of Copic markers in cool gray, and another set of the warm gray. With a few splashes of sharpie thrown in, I’ve come to truly love the effect they create. I am in love with markers.
Expect many pieces in the future featuring my new-found love.
