I promise I will post some updates in here soon. I've got TONS to share - Be on the lookout!
Available on t-shirts (and other stuff) today ONLY at RIPT Apparel for $11:…

Mark your calendars! I'll be a guest at the Philly Non-Sports Card Show in Allentown, PA, October 18-19.

See you there.

I don't update my page too often. Just wanted to drop a note letting everyone know I'm still alive, just overwhelmed with work.

Over the next 60 days I've got nearly 250 sketch cards to do for various sets! GAH!!!

I've got a lot of cards that I've completed last year to share, but the sets have been delayed so long that I'm still not allowed to show them yet. Hopefully that is remedied soon...
I have a t-shirt design available today only at RIPT Apparel 2/7, only $10! Check it out --->

Also, feel free to spread the word on Facebook. Thanks. :)

I listen to a great podcast called Star Wars: In Character. They raise money around the holidays to purchase Star Wars toys to donate to Toys For Tots.

This year to raise funds they asked more than 50 artists to contribute original art on Mandalorian Armor (Boba Fett's armor) to be auctioned off to raise funds for their cause.

Here's the main site:
Auction page:…

All the money raised from this is going towards the toy purchases. You can place early bird bids now (with more pieces being added daily, so keep checking back), but the actual auction isn't for 2 weeks.

I'm honored to be included in this. Here is my contribution, Mandonomicon (they're working on fixing the title on the auction page, stupid auto-correct!):…


So check it out. Even if you don't like mine, there's probably something else you might like to bid on.

I have a t-shirt design available today only at ShirtPunch 10/18, only $10! Check it out --->…

EDIT: The sale is over, but you can still get one here:…

This will be my first Wizard show and I'm pretty excited (and nervous) about it!…

And here's my page on the Wizard site:…

I'll have at least one print available and I'm working on a new promo card to give away. I'll likely have a bunch of original work for sale - both sketch cards and larger pieces. I also have some blank comic covers to work on.

Hope to see you there!
Quite awesome!!…

Anybody going to see this? I probably won't get to for another couple weeks, but if you do, be on the lookout for my Donovan McNabb painting:

They used it for a set dressing while filming. They had it for about 2 months last year. I hope it actually gets some screen time, this is cool stuff! :D
I will be set up at the show this weekend 10/20-10/21. Come out, buy some cards, and say "Hi!"

I'll have lots of original artwork available, see you there!!

I guess it's been a while since I've updated things 'round these parts. Honest answer - I just don't have the time for it. I've got lots of art to share, just need to find the time to.

But for now, here's what's been up in the land of sketch cards:

• Mars Attacks Heritage - I did manage to paint every card, and the re-sales of these on Ebay and such have been the strongest I've seen of any of my cards. That's awesome, this was definitely a fun set to work on.

• DC New 52  - All of my cards were approved for this set, I think it releases in about a month.

• Tarzan 100th Anniversary - These should hit by the end of this month.

• Night of the Living Dead - Done and released, I painted all of these using dirt from the cemetery they filmed the opening scene in. :zombie:

• Avengers 50th - This comes out soon.

• Star Wars Galactic Files - Set to release late September, this is a high-end Star Wars set. Cards are long done, should be a cool release.

So that's all stuff I've finished the past few months. I've got 2 sets I'm committed to to finish up, and beyond that I've got a backlog of commissions to catch up on. I'm trying to get those done alongside these current sets.

Busy Busy Busy!! :faint:

Here are my current sketch card projects:

• Mars Attacks Heritage - Topps - I'm trying my hardest to paint every card. I've never attempted this at this quantity before, normally I reserve painting for Artist Return cards, but I'm so excited for this set I want to make it special. You should follow them on Facebook, they're regularly posting sketch card samples, looks like some great stuff so far.

• Kitty Ditties and Pretty Ladies - 5finity - A bizarre title, but one that I couldn't say 'no' to - it's a Katie Cook brainchild!

• Bettie Page 2 - Versicolor - Back to the drawing board for round 2. I think my "Bettie at the beach" piece will be used in the base set this time.

• Something from Cryptozoic - Not sure if I'm allowed to say I'm on the set, but if anyone knows what they've got on tap I'm sure you can figure it out. This is a set that's been a long time coming, glad to be part of it.

• Tarzan 100th - Cryptozoic -  This is in the bag, I think the set gets released next month.

• Night of the Living Dead & Avengers 50th - Unstoppable Cards - Hopefully the blanks show soon. Been waiting on these a looooong time. :(

• Stuff from Cult Stuff - Again, not sure if I can say I'm doing it yet, but look for more of my artwork in future sets.

This should keep me busy through June. I say this all the time, but I'm gonna try to work on some other stuff once this is all out of the way. I've got plenty of ideas in my head, including a story for a graphic novel and a children's book, I just need to dedicate the time to them.

I've been really bad with keeping on top of things here lately. I do like to thank every person who "faves" my work, but I haven't been able to go through my messages in ages. I currently have 10,518 unread messages. :crazy:


Current Projects:

• 1600 Pennsylvania Ave - Famous Fabrics - Cards have been out a few weeks now and are doing very well! Pricey, but you get your money's worth. I was able to purchase a couple of my base cards, and they look outstanding. I'd love to get one of the Presidential autograph cards with my artwork, but I doubt that'll ever happen.

• Tarzan 100th Anniversary - Cryptozoic Entertainment - Cards have been done a while now, still waiting on Cryptozoic to make some more announcements on the set. They've been pretty quiet about it thus far.

• Star Wars Galaxy 7 - Topps - These have been out about a month now, and my cards have been doing exceptionally well. Even on the returns I'm doing - collectors want the psychedelic look. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback all around from collectors and fellow artists, and that is AWESOME!

• Spook Show - Monsterwax - Cards are at the manufacturer and should be packed out with the next round of boxes.

• Scares That Care tshirt - If you haven't supported the charity and ordered your shirt yet, what are you waiting for? :)


Upcoming Projects:

• Bettie Page Set 2 - Versicolor - More awesomeness, and this time my "Bettie at the Beach" should be in the base set. Doesn't release til later this year.

• ???? - ???? - Can't talk about it yet, but I did an early sample for something I'm REALLY excited about. Hopefully you'll be seeing it soon.

• ???? - ???? - Can't talk about this one yet either. But I just agreed to do a handful of sketch cards for a set that's been long overdue. Comic fans WILL rejoice! :superman:

• Worked up some preliminary artwork for another potential base set, but my style's not really fitting the look of the set so this may be a no-go.

• Night of the Living Dead - Unstoppable Cards - Been waiting on blanks since last year... I don't know when this is going to materialize.

• Avengers 50th - Unstoppable Cards - See NOTLD above. :(


Other notes:

• The closer it gets, the more it looks like I won't be doing Wizard World Philly after all. I just don't have the time to prepare. I'm still gonna try to attend, though!

• How am I not asked to work on a new MLB set? Boo! Hiss! :frustrated:

• A few more commissions to do then I'm caught up! Well, until I begin the next round...
