So many Inktobers!

Inktober is my favorite time of year. The failed sketches falling from the trees, the smells of spilled ink, the burning sketchbooks...

I went with the theme of Vintage Monsters and Cryptozoology creatures this year.

Creature from the Black Swamp?

Flatwoods Monster.

Classic Ghoul.


The more benign Black Shuck. I prefer those stories of him saving lost maidens then his other hellish adventures.

A more manly Wolfman.

Vintage alien vs. newish alien. 

Chupacabra family.

King of Monsters, 1954 Godzilla.

Invisible Man.


The scariest of monsters-Nosferatool.


Jersey (Shore) Devil.

The misadventures of a shark named Jaws.

Akhlut, an Inuit wolf-orca monster.
More to come!

I haven't updated in A MILLION YEARS but I saw some other fantastic artists on blogspot and it made me want to revisit and revive my dead blog. 
This is what happened. 


A lot has happened since my last update! I'm working as a storyboard artist at Disney Interactive. 
AND I LOVE IT. My coworkers are so awesome and I love working on Disney Infinity and it's just so much fun coming into work each day. Being surrounded by so many amazing artists and storytellers is so inspiring. 
And so intimidating. 
But luckily they're all super nice and don't make fun of my love for dinosaurs too much. 

I will try to keep up this blog in addition to my Tumblr and Instagram. If anyone is still around here, that is...
Goodbye for now!

CTN in a nutshell

Sorry to all of you amazing artists that had to go through this. Truly. I'm an incredibly shy person which makes me an incredibly awkward person at times. 
For real though, CTN was such a blast. I loved meeting everyone and becoming inspired by all the amazing talent present there!

Several Stories

 Lately I've been just sketching at the end of the day's work to unwind before heading to bed. I don't start with a story or characters, I just start to sketch whatever comes and let the story evolve. Here are a few.

These little orca bird guys came out of some of the scribbles that I did. I’m sure they’re some little native tribe in the northwest. And they all have things they like to do and jobs in the tribe, like a poet, or a magician, or a witch, or a street performer. But they have one common enemy, and that’s Beaky there. I’m thinking he’s some scary story to tell to their kids to make them behave, about how he comes and gobbles them all up if they don’t obey their parents. But then it turns out that he’s actually real and does start to steal and gobble up people of the tribe. 

I was gesturing from rodeos to loosen up for a project I’m boarding on and this story about a kid who comes to the West from London and a Native American mustang just kept forming. Boy is not a cowboy. Mustang knows this.

 These two are Little Tawa and Koyemsi. Tawa is a Sunface kachina with a habit of exploring and dragging his friend Koyemsi along. Koyemsi is a Mudhead Kachina who’s supposed to be a clown, but instead is introverted and has somewhat of a temper. Tawa helps to balance out Koyemsi’s melancholy nature while Koyemsi keeps Tawa out of trouble. Sometimes. 
Also featured is an Angak’china (Long-Haired kachina) and a variation of an Angwusnasomtaka (Crow Mother kachina).

These were just done for fun, but I would love to hear any thoughts or suggestions that you would have. One or all may turn into something in the future!
