I am currently employed with Thor Media LLC . But since it is a small company, they are always looking for new clients. This allows me to still do allot of work, as if I was freelance. So, don't be afraid to approach with any work that I or Thor Media would be interested in.

Was up late last night watching Gotham and drawing, and I liked how Selina Kyle’s hair is so curly. Decided to give blonde curls a try, with a more desaturated palette. And this is what 4 hours and a late night turned into. I haven’t been doing allot of digital painting, and allot more digital ... Read More
Working with Kickstarter, and people who wish to start a campaign, can be difficult. What rewards are you going to provide, how do you get people to take interest in the campaign, how does everyone get there rewards at the end of the day, and how does everyone who worked on on the campaign get ...

So I have had my SatanDisk for about a year now, and it has been an absolute joy to use. Transfering files to and from my Atari ST to a modern computer is a snap. It allows me to work on my pixel art easily (I need to post some of this some day…), and ... Read More

This is where my next illustration comes in. This year, along with new features for the next version of Krita, the group behind Krita is producing a ... Read More
Working with some different brushes in Krita, and pushing myself a bit with some different kind of lighting challenges.

A quick piece that still shows I am still stuck on this ink with one or two colors “style”. I recently got a Cintiq 24HD and it makes painting so much faster than my Intuos 4 or Cintiq 13HD. I still keep those around, in case I am on the move, but they simply don’t ... Read More
I haven’t had allot of time after Inktober, and getting my Inktober book together, to draw and paint. But I was able to squeeze in an hour here and there on this illustration for Flappy McFur, BitJag’s Atari Jaguar homebrew game. The idea was simple, I wanted to depict Mcfur and Cutter moving forward together, ... Read More
Already a month away from Inktober, and I haven’t been too involved in the social media department at all. There is good reason for that though. During this month, I have been working on assembling my Inktober work into a printable book format. My first publicly published collection of my artwork. As many of you ... Read More
