Exciting times!

2 min read
These are exciting times my friends! June is upon us!This year has been busy and absolutely flying by...but that's what they say about having this much fun!

The game I have been creating art for since last year is currently having a very successful Kick Starter campaign. We are fully funded, but there is still time to buy in to this game and get a great deal before it is released for full retail. It is called "Netherworld's Edge" and you can check it out here: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

I also just released the fourth page of "Lollipop Handbook" with Atomic Paw Press, which is available here on DA, and also on our home page lollipophandbook.com/
We have some fun content planed for our Patrons this month too, which you can see at www.patreon.com/lollipophandbo…

I also have a super secret project that is coming along really well, but I'm afraid I can't say much about that...

Lots if cool things in the works!

New Web Comic!!

3 min read
HI everyone! My friend and I are starting a new web comic together. He will be writing the script and I will be creating the art.

It is called Lollipop Handbook, and takes place in a post apocalyptic future where animals have evolved to the social level that mankind once held before the fall. But what will this new civilized culture do to suppress the natural and now forbidden instinctual urges of it's more carnivorous citizens...to eat!

Our main website is lollipophandbook.com/ We will be posting at least one new page there each month on the 1st. Follow there to get all the updates.

We are doing this mostly just for fun, but if you like the comic and want to see more of it, we have a Patreon set up where you can donate as little as a dollar a month. If we can gain enough support we will increase production and we have some other fun things planed. I will also be posting a lot of art to our Patreon that wont be seen anywhere else. This will be a lot of sketches, concepts, and extra making of stuff that goes in to LPH.

Check out our Patreon at www.patreon.com/lollipophandbo…
Hope you enjoy!

February hit like a car crash. Literally.

At the beginning of the the month a driver fell asleep and drove their car through my front yard. We were home when it happened, it sounded like an explosion, and our house shook. They totaled both my wife and I's cars which were parked in the driveway. It also knocked over a 25 foot palm tree in our yard, and the cars hit the house, damaging it too. The yard was covered in auto glass and wreckage. Luckily no one was hurt, and the driver was insured.

The following month has been a nightmare of dealing with all the various insurances involved. Finding new cars. Trying to get the debris cleaned up (how do you get 3 cars worth of crumbling auto glass off a lawn??!)

To top it all off, as I was cleaning up my yard I slipped on some rubble, fell and dislocated my knee. So now I am on crutches, all rickety cricket style, hobbling around my house. Seriously...

On the up side, I have been working on some great projects recently.  I am under NDA so I can't share much of what I am working on immediately. I hope to have more art that I can share soon.

Hope you all are doing well!

I first joined deviantArt August 13, 2006. I had a different account and a very different life then. I was selling cars, had no time to focus on my art, and was very unhappy...That page is still up, like a time capsule, I have not touched it since 2007. At that time there was not much place in my life for my art.  I felt like I was trapped in a Bullpen:iconbullpen:

In 2010 I decided to go back to Art school in the San Francisco Bay Area to finish my BA. On August 7th, 2010, I created this new dA account. A fresh start, which is what I wanted for my life. That was 4 years ago today!

In school I began to paint digitally for the first time in my life at the age of 30. I knew I had a lot to learn about the technical application of my art! Over the past few years I feel like my technique has improved a lot. I continue to constantly learn and attempt to work in different styles.
