A few things have been happening in my life that have made it a little hard to keep up with Blogging. I found the love of my life, had a baby, bought a new home, helped buy a business and became Creative Director at Vandor LLC in Downtown Salt Lake City, Ut. At Vandor we work with some of the biggest licenses in the entertainment world. Some of our licensors are Marvel, Star Wars, Disney, Pixar, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Hello Kitty, Dr. Suess, Saban, The Beatles, Peanuts just to name a few. Our client list has some of the biggest companies in America such as Wal-Mart, Target, and some of the GEEKIEST such as LOOTCRATE, Game Stop, Entertainment Earth, and Think Geek. Here are a few of the most recent designs and creations I have directed at Vandor.

I was commissioned to do a pin-up of the Masters of the Universe character Man-E-Faces. After I was finished inking it I commissioned Lacey LeBlanc to do the colors. They turned out fantastic.

This year the Utah Arts Festival is having a design competition for their T-Shirt. You can only have 3 colors in the design and it has to be 12" x 12". I have created a design that i think is fun and artistic, I have submitted and I hope I WIN!

I received an very unusual letter form a man living in Germany the other day. Apparently he collects artwork from illustrators around the world and he has me on his list of artist to collect illustrations from.
He sent a prepaid envelope for me to send him my illustration.
He also sent me a few illustrations done by other very famous artists, he even has a sketch from Will Eisner (I feel pretty honored to be in the same class as the great Will Eisner)
So Hans gets an original Garrick Dean pig illustration.

I was commissioned last year to draw the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a gritty cartoon style, the client liked the piece so much he commissioned me to draw the villains of the turtles.
