I employ a variety of subjects, mediums, and techniques to represent that which, previously, had remained unseen.
Currently operating under the banner of Xiangbala Studio, I've been illustrating since the late '80's, and have been published in books, games, and magazines, as well as on billboards, CD's, murals and textiles.
Once upon a time (and "back East"), I worked as Sharayah Press, doing Renn Fests, Celtic and Scottish Games, and hundreds of SF/Fantasy conventions.
Between 2010-2013, I lived in Changsha, China, studying traditional Chinese ink painting, book and product design.
I'm much more into character development and conceptual art now days, exploring how the applications of different mediums react to each other in ways to deepen the work. Also, I'm currently working on a fourth book (long over-due)!
2014: "One Year After: A Sketchbook." 183 sketches with annotations
2007: "A Life of Ravens" by Alex Ness, with illustrations by Mike Grell, Alex Shiekman, Josh Howard, myself, and 23 other artists and photographers.
2006: "Ink: Images and Essays from Bob Giadrosich." 18 years of gaming, book and magazine illustration.
As always, thanks for looking!
