The Stricken Oak

O.K. Sorry I have'nt posted in a while, but work's been crazy bz. But we had a Movie poster theme art show at Fox. This was my movie poster for Frankenstein. More of a teaser poster actually. In the story, there's an Oak tree in the Dr.'s courtyard. It gets struck by lightning and is split and burned. The Dr. realizes that lightning will power the creature. He often stares at the the blasted oak as a symbolic reminder of how his life has been broken.
Anyways, the show was a great opportunity to bust out the oils again. The piece was very well recieved. Thanks and congrats to Cyndi who dropped the highest bid and scored this baby. Thanks to Toby also for an awesome frame. This one sparked another new painting, coming soon. Peace.
Happy holidays everyone.

Kodaddy ( in color )

Here is the color version of my self portrait I did for the portrait show at Fox. It's one of my signature outfits as you can see: silver jacket, green vans etc. I added my cool guy shades cause Lorna thought it was wierd that I did'nt have eyes.

Liam, The Turtle, and The Frog

My hiatus is almost over. I know, it took a long time to start some new personal work. But I really needed the trips, the family time and the rest. It's been amazing. And now I am beginning a new series of paintings, and I have big plans for them. I draw inspiration from my son Liam. He brings joy to everyone w/ his spirit and enthusiasm. Having this time w/ him, at this age, and watching him grow into his character has been unreal. Anyways, anxious to bust out the oils and start painting. I'll post the finished ptg. when I'm done, but it'll probably be awhile, since I'm going back to work on Tuesday.

I was asked to posts these a bit larger. Here ya go.


Here are some Mech sketches I always liked. I did them from my toys. At my old aptartment, I used to let the neighbors' kids play w/ my toys on the porch. These were their favorites. I only have one of these guys left, and he's missing his toes. But he's still cool. I keep him at work.

Actually, Yosemite...

Actually, Yosemite feels more like this...The high country that is. Wusup to the other Patrick. You lucky bastard. I really miss this one.

Megas SB Panel

Check out this Megas storyboard panel. It's one of my favorites. He's about to reach towards cam ( filling frame w/ his hand) and pull out another robot's spine.

Plein-air Paintings

Portrait Of A Cloud

Open Road

Treetops, Washington

Leo Carrillo

Once upon a time, a couple of young painters hit the road w/ their French easels and painted along the way. We'd spend about 2 hours at a spot and whip out these plein-air ( I think thats how you spell it) paintings. We'd even sell some to locals for beer money and maybe another night or two. Here are a couple of those bad boys, freshly dusted for your viewing pleasure.

Head Painting

Awright, I'm cleaning out the studio as my hiatus slowly comes to an end, and I'm discovering a bunch of old gems. So I'll post some of theses babies as I dust them off. This is one of my favorite portraits. I love this model. How awesome is this dude? Great character!
