Part of my first project for Advanced Illustration this semester. We were told to illustrate 6 portraits of persons (living or dead) who we would want to have as "Facebook Friends."
My favorite of all the illustrations I did was of the United States' 26th president - Theodore Roosevelt. This guy was pretty much the most hardcore, kick-ass president ever. I'm reading a biography about him by Douglas Brinkley (fittingly titled The Wilderness Warrior), and let me tell you, Teddy was full of vigor and wit!
This was painted with Copic sketch markers on marker paper in a matter of 3 hours. I was SO HIGHafterwards...
And so it was, America had won her independence from Britain. But the young nation had little time to celebrate, for from the edge of the Universe came a frightening menace. As George Washing-tron leads America's armies into their first space war, the super genius Benjamin Franklin had discovered a way to harness the limitless power of the Patriot Atoms. Using his immense skills, he crafted a robot in his own image: Ben Robo. Together, he and George Washington, along with a time-displaced Lincolnvoy, must fight to ensure the future of America and Freedom. Go! Mechamericanize! Ben Robo!
Here's my latest painting, as well as my largest painting to date. It is centered around the theme of being brutally honest. Anyway, this is a painting of times square in new york city. At first glance, this may look like a fairly ordinary portrayal of times square, but when you look really closely at the advertisements, you'll realize that every one of them has a humorously honest slogan(www.facebook.com/media/set/?se… click the link to view the closeups of the ads). Ladies and Gentlemen, this is what times square would look like in a brutally honest society. Now, I know in this photo, it's hard to decipher the slogans, so I've included closeups inside this album. I tried to keep everything in canon with current pop culture, so that when we look back on this in 20 years or more, this will be an even better piece, and would be a rather quirky time capsule of present times.

The party of PCs from a Twin Peaks-inspired Eberron game I've been playing for the past several months. We just wrapped the whole thing up yesterday, and I drew this as a parting gift for the players, at the request of the DM.

Terios - Minotaur Cleric of Dol Dorn. Ashterothe - Valenar Elf Pursuit Avenger, follower of the Blood of Vol Argonnel Vanderhausen - Half-elf Ardent/Warlord (played by me) Niall d'Medani - Half-elf Monk and Inquisitive of House Medani Sariel - Eladrin Fighter (played by ~Dustin-Lechery )
This is one of the Illustrations appearing in the recent "RIFTS: Black Market" published by Palladiumbooks. [link]
The robot steed is manufactured by Bandito Arms and the steed is an amphibious unit combining a shark with a stallion. It has built in cannons in the nasal cavity and can utilize its tail fro melee combat along with its hooves. The underbelly has vector thrusters for assisting it underwater and leaping. In this illustration I chose to have it being piloted by a Rifts dimensional being known as a Loak.
