I couldn't make myself happy with this illustration, so I ended up redrawing it completely. The fifth scene I inked for my new book "The End Of The World", this details a scene in the Dupont neighborhood of Washington, DC, when, following the collapse of the central government, local militia's seize control using Army Reserve machinery. India ink and brush on Bristol board, 11" by 17"
Life is a rocky road. I've had incredible highs, including being featured in books, magazines, and touring all around the world. I've had incredible lows. The death of my wife. Brain Cancer. Totaling 3 motorcycles and two cars. A knife fight with a crackhead that almost severed my thumb. But ultimately, life is what you make of it. I'm currently writing horror short stories, I put out my first novel "The Black Seas Of Infinity" in 2011 via Anarchy Books, to be followed by my second book "Down Highways In The Dark...By Demons Driven" courtesy of Damnation Books sometime this year. Permuted Press picked up my debut novel for a reissue as well, featuring a new cover, a slight edit, and a range of available versions that include hardcover, softcover, and audiobook. I do a regular comic for Tattoo Artist Magazine, illustrations for TTA Press, This Is Horror, and Splatterpunk.
