The 6th illustration for my new book "The End of the World", this details the scene where one of the two protagonists, retreating from a wrecked vehicle, takes a strange side step only a wooded path that is garnished by hanging corpses.

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"

4th drawing for my new novel "The End Of The World", illustrating the scene where one of the lesser alien races stumbles across and are destroyed by a wormhole. Ink and brush, 11" by 17".
Third illo for my new book
It took awhile, as I decided I didn't like the original and entirely redrew the piece.
This illustrates a scene where an old man, part of an oligarchy that has survived the fall of the US, is betraying the human race in return for a promise of life eternal. Brush and India ink, 11" by 17".
The End Of The World Book Cover
Al Liptik did an amazing job designing a few different covers for my new book based off my painting “The End Of The World”.  This is the one we decided to go with, and he’ll tighten it up before sending me a high res image.

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. Check out my stuff, you might not hate it. or the latest updates on instagram!
