Beach Blanket Bloodbath

Art trade for Andrew Barr's Beach Blanket Bloodbath About a year too late, but I finally did it. Drawing sexy pin-up girls doesnt come naturally to me. I tend to draw the kinds of women that show up in the movies that MST3K watch (like Racket Girls).

End of the Year SALE!!

Ive got a big life changing payment to make by January 10th. Looking over my savings Im a bit shy of my goal. So with that in mind, Im running a last minute end of the year sale!

Found a brand new 7x10 mixed media sketch book so I'm using that special size for this.

$10.00 color 7x10


Buy two sketch cards, get one free!

Add $5 for shipping to your order.

Im running this til the end of year along with the $10 off sale I started last month.

Take advantage now since Im gonna be real busy in the next few months and commissions may have to take a back seat if not be put on hold all together for a while.

Thanks everybody!

I went to the crossroad
Fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroad
Fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord above "Have mercy now,
Save poor Bob, if you please"

Emperor Zombie

Last night I tweeted asking for a subject. First one was for "zombies". Here's the ruler of them all, Emperor Zombie from Mike Mignola's Amazing Screw-On Head.


Krampus is a mythical creature recognized in Alpine countries. According to legend, Krampus accompanies St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) during the Christmas season, warning and punishing bad children, in contrast to St. Nicholas, who gives gifts to good children. When the Krampus finds a particularly naughty child, it stuffs the child in its sack and carries the frightened child away to its lair, presumably to devour for its Christmas dinner.

Catgut and Rum painting

Like doing these chunky digital paintings. Good practice for when I get a chance to hit the canvas with real acrylics.

I am the Devil Bird

I did the cover for my buddy Jesse James Freeman's novel Billy Purgatory: I am the Devil Bird available now for your Kindle and your Nook.

You can also order a print of it here.

Adventure Time...

...C'mon, grab your friends,
We'll go to very distant Lands
With Jake the Dog,

The Adventures'll never end,
It's Adventure Time!
