I have a commission for 6 illustrations about the creation story of the bible. I've finished 2/3 of the project, so I have 2 more to go.
I have a commission for a set of creation-themed illustrations. Since I have a rough idea what the layout and style will be, I have started doing some more detailed study sketches of animals. After all, what creation is complete without animals? (Sorry for the poor image quality, the lighting was not that great when … Continue reading Illustrations Sketches!

I should also add a spiral on the horns of both helmets. So it's back to the workshop. I managed to take … Continue reading Detours

A lot has been happening here in the last several weeks, but now it's summer vacation time! In other words, time to work some more on stuff you couldn't do during the semester.

But here's what I'm doing: Back Yard Mural: Significant progress … Continue reading Works in Progress: The Mural, The Ark, The Dinosaur!

I had a good starting point, though, since Martin is an excellent photographer and gave me a great photo to work from. Check out his … Continue reading A new Painting done, others in the Making!
