Original Super Villain Work in Progress

  • I used a Prismacolor Col Erase Pencil,
    Sakura Pigma Microns, and C
    opic Markers,
    on 5” x 7” 90 lb Canson Mix Media Paper.
  • When I share artworks, I typically post some sort of fan art.  The sketch, on the left, is one of my original characters.  I have several story ideas that could be translated into a comic or other mediums.

  • I’ve been thinking through this super villain and his evil sons, for close to two years now. I have some concepts for his voice and the style of stories, that I want to tell. I created a silly monikers, for the villain and his sons, but I have not really gotten very far in creating the look of the sons, just yet.

  • Since I have been posting art related videos, on my YouTube channel, I’ve been toying with the idea of doing some simple animations, with this character.

  • This is the super villain dad, his real name is a secret, but his silly super villain name is the "Yellow Green Jacket." He is a human, but he wears a insect inspired helmet.

Garfield/Stranger Things Mashups

I have done a lot of sketches, this year.  Several of them, that I really enjoyed working on recently, were my Garfield/Stranger Things mash-ups.  To see my individual sketches, that I used to create the image, on the left, check out my Instagram.

Like most kids, I liked to color, but I remember really starting to draw, in first grade. I loved Garfield, and I would trace various images of Garfield that I had.  Until the day came that I could, just draw Garfield.

I remember, once in fourth grade, another kid and I had a free hand Garfield drawing contest, in Mrs. Cobb's class.  I don't remember who we had judge our little contest, and I honestly don't remember, which of us won.  Since I don't remember, it makes me want to say that he probably won.
