Program Chair Comic and Sequential Imaging

I have recently been hired by Broadview Entertainment Arts University to head the division of comic book and sequential art. This is truly a wonderful job that will allow me to use all of my talents I have been cultivating for the past 25 years. I will teaching students about the great world of comic book and I will also help in developing the itinerary, curriculum, and education process for this University. I am very excited to start and get to know my students, staff, and fellow faculty.

If any of you have any question about BEAU go to this website and investigate all the amazing classes they offer.

Willy Juan-Cah' the Candy Bandito

Willy Juan-Cah' the Candy Bandito - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More
I think my white whale will be to get a shirt selected by I have a new goal.

Threadless gets thousands upon thousands of submissions and very few make to completion of printed T-Shirts, my goal is to be one of those select few.

This is my third attempt at getting printed, it is called "Willy Juan-Cah' the Candy Bandito"
please go to the link above and underneath the two drawings and vote for my t-shirt, the more votes and the higher the rating, the closer I am to capturing my white whale...

I really loved creating this design and getting to completion. I had several design friends of mine give me input until I felt it was just right.
Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Ghost Rider on iPad


In honor of the new movie Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance and in celebration of me getting my new iPad 2 I did a sketch in my iPad on the Sketch Book Pro app.
It is a really fun and intuitive app that lets you sketch on multiple layers and in different colors and tons of brushes!!
I started with a basic blue line sketch like i would normally do...

I then add a new layer and put down some color...

The go over the top with black line art....

It is a very easy way to sketch and carry all of your information and music with you at the same time. I LOVE YOU iPad!!

The Dark Half

I have said forever that I would love to see a remake of The Dark Half by Stephen King.

I have a running joke with my friends is that Benicio Del Toro and Brad Pitt are actually twins separated at birth..and Benicio is the evil version. 

I made this fan poster (and by no means is this a real film or approved by any professional film or production company at all) but I think it is fun to make these posters to show a great film in a parallel world.

Short Keys for CS5

This is nice quick reference chart for Illustrator, since I use it ALL the time this will be handy to have. It is mostly just for me to look here really quick, instead of trying to find this in the web somewhere, when I need to add a quick anchor point.

Week 7

Again, this is definitely not week 7, but as a series I am just going to keep the title consecutive so I can find them easy on the blog. This is a Caiman lizard and I really liked drawing him (or her, hard to tell) because of all the great detail on its skin. It took awhile to finish this one because I only work on these when I have a few minutes and it seemed like I was drawing scales for days and days and days!!
I hope you like it.

Kim's Tattoo

I was commissioned by a friend, Kim Allen, to design a tattoo she was looking to get 

She loves Sunflowers and Music so she was looking for something feminine and very nice
I came up with this concept and she approved with very minor adjustments

and here is the finished art for her tattoo.
