Terminator Stewie (the painting)
Finally got this guy photographed. Thanks to Bob and Jim for bidding. And a special thanks to Mike, who swept in at the last minute and dropped the highest bid. It's now hanging proudly in his office.

We're having a television theme art show at fox and I'm doing Terminator:the Sarah Connor Chronicles.I dont usually do the Family Guy characters, but who can resist Stewie as an ass-kicking evil android? I've atached the design of the Terminator girl as well and a small comp for the painting. Great to be doing an illustration again. Especially a nice scary one. I have one a week and a half to paint it. Just wrapped up painting for the day. This is a pallette I have'nt used in a while. It's gonna be a nighttime scene , so I'm using mostly cools, lots of cerulean and paynes gray. Will post when done.

Portrait Of A Flying Tree 2
This is the piece I did for the album cover theme art show at Fox. I thought this would make a cool cd cover. And I'm so happy that my good friend Mark Garcia scored this baby and put up the highest bid. This means I can still enjoy it at his pad when we chill, which is great cuz I'm kind of in love w/ this one. Thanks Mark!

Gygax Tribute Show at Titmouse
The guys at Titmouse are having a Gary Gygax Tribute Art Show this Saturday, August 22. Gary Gygax is the visionary creator of Dungeons & Dragons. My brother and I were avid D&D players when we were kids. My brother was a barbarian who got killed all the time, and I was always an elf. Playing D&D really stimulated my imagination and it was one of my 4 major creative influences. (The other 3 were: Star Wars, Robotech, and Comic books)
So I was pretty stoked when TSR contacted me to do a bunch of Dungeons & Dragons illustrations for various guidebooks and monster manuals. Here are a couple of my favorites that will be in the Gygax show at Titmouse. These were done for Ravenloft; The Shadow Rift ( the Gothic, Horror branch of D&D). Word up to Squirgy the magic user and all my elf bruthas out there w/ the crazy dexterity. And big thanks to Chris P. for including me in the show.

This guy is an old favorite of mine from back in the day. I sculpted him first and then I did this painting. I'll post a photo of the sculpture soon.

Here is some development work I'm doing for a friend. This is a bad guy, Mongolian gang. I was concentrating on various ( big guy ) body shapes. Then I started having fun w/ some of the outfits and armor. Check out #5's 80's hairdo.

Lorna, Liam, and the Pterodactyl
This image has lived in my imagination since last summer in Yosemite. I roughed it out yesterday and I cant wait to paint it. And yes, that is the lovely Lorna and Liam, my muses. I'm about to post a lot of cool, new work. I have lots of new paintings going on right now, and as I finish them up, I'll post them. So check it out!
Addendum: That's right , that is a Pterodactyl. Actually it's a Pteranodon. And here are a couple of fun facts:
- not a true Dinosaur.
- wing span of up to 33 ft.
- toothless, yet carnivorous!
- agile, elegant, and quite fast!
- used large bony crest on head to steer when flying!
- their brightly colored crests were used for attracting females and indicated readiness to mate.
