So for my first-ever Kickstarter, with a funding goal of $1800, I'm offering a series of oversized all-weather vinyl decals based on my illustrations of the D&D Chromatic Dragons! These die cut stickers are printed on a thick, durable vinyl that resists scratching, rain & sunlight. I'm offering seven designs that range from the adorable to the epic and insane!
So let’s do this!
‘Grab your swords, grab your shield. Find your courage, and weapon wield! Let your excitement be unleashed; For together, we’ll slay this beast!’

Five years ago, on this very weekend, I attended Wizard World Chicago. I bought a box of prismacolor markers and I did a silly little sketch of Superman. I told myself I was going to keep at it. I was going to practice hard, and just maybe I could go somewhere with this thing. So here we are, five years later, and still not working for DC or Marvel, but... oh, the journey that has been had!
So I snuck this pic of Superman, the Man of Tomorrow in
between commissions just to measure progress!
And here's the timelapse coloring of Man of Tomorrow!

Let the holiday gift giving begin!
Here's a tradition I started a few years ago. The holidays are a busy time, and during this time, I often find myself visiting restaurants and eateries much more often than usual, so as part of the festivities, I sketch 4x6 cards on location and leave a gift to a server for great service! So let the holiday cheer commence!
I'll try to update this journal will all of the Christmas shenanigans I come up with. :xmas:

Have a wonderful evening, stay safe, and don't let the boogie man bite!

Spooks come out for a screaming wake
Happy haunts materialize and begin to vocalize
Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize!"31 Days 31 Drawings - Inktober Day 31
And to recap, here is the rest of InkTober 2015:
Here is a red letter date in the history of time travel! Today is October 21, 2015! At precisely 4:29 AM, the preeminent inventor of time travel, Dr. Emmet Brown and his assistant, Martin McFly, with the help of the stainless steel integrity of a 1985 Delorean motor car embedded with a capacitor that, upon accelerating to 88 miles per hour, created a flux dispersal that bent the very fabric of space and time, hurling the pair into THIS... OUR PRESENT and THEIR FUTURE.
Happy Back to the Future Day! The future is NOW!
