Supa Dupa!

Hello friends!!

First off, thanks so much to all who have been showing support on Society6. It's going to help pay for a broken windshield :(.

Anyways, I just got a Wacom tablet after years and years of being frustrated whenever I have to hop onto my wife's computer and use hers. As frustrating as it was, I loved the fact you could get more realistic stroke effects and brushes. So to get acclimated to it, I decided to try it out on a sketch I did a while back for 10 Paces (not to mention it's been a while since I've done something for fun).

Here's the 2 options I cooked up. Enjoy!

I added a letter press effect to this option. See below for more detail.

Super quick, super awesome promo

Hello friends!

Society6 is offering $5 off + free shipping until DEC 8th! A deal soooo good I had to share. You need to use this link to get the code: The offer excludes Framed Art Prints, Stretched Canvases and Throw Pillows with insert. Everything else is fair game (even the mugs)! Here are some of the favs so far, but I will say my fav is the Double Thumbs. It's pretty awesome. Thanks so much! Have an awesome week and if we don't talk soon, an awesomer Christmas and super safe, super awesome New Year.

Long overdue update

Hello friends!

Sorry I've been MIA. I've been super busy running the studio on top of working on-site with a client that I've had zero fun time for personal illustrations for the past 6 months. Well, I hope to change that soon. In the meantime, as you're thinking about that special someone (yourself included) this holiday season or if you're just in need of cool art, why not pick up some great items from Society6? I recently updated my account to include some personal fav pieces I've developed as well as updated some of the older pieces for their new mug items (but there are plenty of other talented artists as well):

And this little guy has been moving like hotcakes!!!

I'd like to give a super humble "THANK YOU" to all who have been supportive on Society6, Twitter and Dribbble. You all are awesome!!

Monsters Inc X-over!!

So the good folks at the Pixar Times celebrated the release of Monsters U by calling for submissions for a Monsters Inc Mash-Up themed piece. There were some pretty awesome pieces submitted. I, unfortunately, missed the deadline because of too many projects, but I still wanted to finish my concept. Here she is in all of her glory. Monsters Inc meets X-men. Enjoy!

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a super long hiatus!!

Hello friends!

Sorry for the gap in postings. Work has been crazy busy (and The Last of Us came out as well). Anyways, the good folks at 10 Paces and Draw reached out to me and asked if I could participate in one of their sketch swap thingies and participate I did. I received a sketch by the talented Jesse Tise and I had to do my art thang all over it. Below is his sketch and my final.

Jessie's Sketch

Oh, and here's the sketch I submitted.
I went old school with a nod to Action Comics #1
 Thanks folks! Have a SUPER weekend! Yeah, I went there.

Hello friends!!

To say I was a fan of the Ninja Turtles would be an understatement. I bought Donatello before the cartoon hit the waves on CBS. I just thought it was pretty awesome that there was a turtle that was a ninja and it came with weapons to prove it. I made a body for Krang out of a 24" Rowdy Roddy Piper action figure. I even owned the near-impossible to find party wagon and highly unsafe pizza thrower. I also kept my TMNT comforter and curtains into high school. I think my mom encouraged it since it kept the ladies away.

So what's the point to that "tmi" rant on TMNT? I recently designed a tee for Threadless' TMNT challenge and it just went up for scoring! So if you like it, I'd appreciate a nice score or spreading of the word! Thanks folks!!

2 things

Hello friends!

Been working on a couple new things, but more on that later. For now, 2 things:

1) Society6 is doing their free shipping thing again (as always, certain items excluded)! You need to follow this link to get the free shipping however: **update - the free shipping period is over :( **


2) The high school rock stars at my church (which I help out with) are raising money to buy bikes called Zambulances which basically act as ambulances in Zambia. Sick folks who are completely treatable, often go untreated because there's no way to transport the sick to a hospital. So I want to do my part as well. I'll donate all proceed (minus shipping) for any prints purchased through Paypal (off to the side) to this cause. I'll even reduce my commission rate in half as well from $300 to $150 (though you can pay more if you decide) and that will all go towards these Zambulances. To read more about Zambulances, check the link:

Heck, while I'm at it, I'll donate anything I make from Society6 throughout the month of April towards the Zambulances as well. So go nuts my friends!!

If you want to know more about the commissions, click here. Here's a recent one done for a friend for her husband's Christmas gift. He loves zombies, ninjas and Ramen noodles. My kinda guy!

Let me know if you have any questions. Tell your friends! Have an awesome day!

Just Say No

People always look at dieting like it's a good thing. Well, what about those who get hurt in the process? Never looked at it that way, huh? Think again before you start a fling with Jenny Craig.

Needless to say, this little reminder of unseen evils is available right now at Society 6 AND there's free shipping (except on canvas, frames and pillow inserts) until March 17 but you need to use this link to get the promo:

The perfect way to say "I love you just the way you are."

One more Darth!!

So in celebration of the FREE shipping promo at Society6 (until March 17th), I went ahead and uploaded my second mini Darth since it was so well received at Wizard World and Threadless. Once again, to take advantage of the promo, you need to use this link to get there:

Finally available as a tee!!
  I also uploaded a couple of my wife's Threadless designs that should have absolutely been selected:

FREE Shipping at Society6!***

Triple asterisks!

1) Only on my stuff (and if you use the link below)
2) Excludes stretched canvases, framed art and pillows with inserts.
3) Promotion ends March 17th

You need to use this link: to get the deal. If you happen to miss that promotion this time around, just shoot me an email and I'll let you know the next time it comes around. After the 17th, you'll be able to find my site regularly through this link:

You may also be pleased to know this new Fantastic Four inspired print is available. Unless you hate FF, then you'd be pretty displeased.

So I'm going to be honest about this piece. It was originally intended to be submitted for Threadless' Fantastic Four contest. I had originally checked my idea to ensure no one had done anything like it and indeed, it was original. Fast forward two weeks when I actually get around to it. I'm about 75% completed and I get the feeling I need to check again, and BOOM, there's like 4 others eeeeerily similar. Needless to say, I wasn't happy and I decided to not submit mine. BUT, you can still get it over at Society6!

Thanks friends! Hope you enjoy!

Let the Love Out!!

As I was flipping through an old sketch book I came across a lot of ideas I had sketched out that never went anywhere. This one in particular I just glanced at and a different image came to mind than what was originally intended, but I still love it nonetheless. As I state in the Society6 posting:

It's no secret this is a rough world. I think we're to blame - all of this love waiting to be poured out onto others and we keep it bottled up. Let it out people!!

Here she is in all her glory (available in a number of options. Tees will come depending on if Threadless likes it)! You can't tell from the tiny thumbnail, but I gave it a nice letterpress effect. Enjoy!

A Gouda Day Even Better!

So just about a week after posting my "Have a Gouda Day" artwork to Society 6 (my wife was the inspiration for the graphic. Gotta give credit.), I was just notified that it was chosen to be in Urban Outfitter's online printshop! Pretty awesome news! Go check it out here:

Also! I wanted to let you know I finally updated my Shave the Whales page to include laptop skins and pillows! Check it out here:

Thanks for all of the Gouda Day love!!

New tee up for voting!! I give it two thumbs up! And I can still drive at the same time!!

Hello friends!

3 posts in one day?!! I can take the rest of the winter off now :).

Threadless just posted my latest creation for voting. Not gonna lie, I'm almost as happy with the story as I am with the graphic. Check out the shirt below and go vote for it to see the story!

Thanks friends!!

Shhh. Just shhhhh.

We all know that one person who seems to invite drama or always has an excuse for their latest folly. And I'm not saying don't be there for your friends, but sometimes, they tend to take it over the edge just a wee bit. That's where this guy comes in - their very own tiny violin to play. It was originally an idea for Threadless, but I didn't think it would translate as well for a tee so I went straight to prints and pillows! Pick it up over at Society6! Thanks friends!!

Mini Darth and More!!!

I've been on a posting spree over at Society6 lately. Someone had requested I add my Mini Darth pieces to my page and I went ahead and added the Darth Star, but while I was at it, I added some older unused Threadless pieces I was too fond of to do nothing with including my Gouda Day piece which I love!! What's great is you can get them on pillows and iPhone cases as well. The Gouda Day is a perfect greeting card. One thing to note is that they sometimes do promos where they offer free shipping. If you're interested in purchasing one, let me know so I can let you know once they run the promo again. That's it for now! Stay tuned for an upcoming "my new favorite" Threadless tee design. Hoping to get the green light today!

Everythang is JUST PEACHY!

Sadly, my Just Peachy Threadless design didn't get chosen. After 4 donuts, I got over it. I'm good now. I loved it too much to see it go nowhere so I added it to my Society6 Collection of Greatness (those are my mom's words, not mine). I'm a little worried though. In high school I depicted battle scenes of gore in math class. Now I have unicorns and things that say "Just Peachy" on it. I just lost man points, didn't I? I'm ok with it. I will tell you this, in just a few hours I'll be dominating the online world in Battlefield 3 and getting my man card back (in all reality, a 9 year old kid from Kansas will probably own the heck out of me)!

Anyways, here's the link to pick up some coolness if ye like!

New tee design! Inspiration? My sister.

Hello friends!

Long time, I know. I apologize. I've been busy with work and crafting this beauty (not gonna lie, I also beat Battlefield 3, so I was pretty much busy preventing a world war). This graphic came to be because of a texting conversation I was having with my little sis, whom I can fully admit is way cooler than me. She's one of those trend setters/jet setters out in Cali. It's part of her job. Rather than bore you with all of the details here, you can be bored by the full details of the story over at Threadless and while you're there, if you could vote for it, I'd be delighted. Absolutely delighted.

Here's a more detailed image below. If I get enough positive feedback I might post it over on Society 6 as well. Thanks folks! Hope you're off to an awesome week!!

Hope all is Peachy!!

Hey folks! It's been a long while since I've been able to post anything! Sorry!! I've been working developing some tee concepts and one is currently up for scoring over at Threadless! Click on the image below to go and vote for it or if you really like me and feel it would be great for me to keep a roof over my head, share it with your friends.

There's a couple more tees going on in my head and that are almost completed so I hope to have something else soon! Thanks mucho!!
