Sick as hell right now. Can't seem to shake it.
Anyway, here's a few from awhile back. The top is a piece for Probeat mag and the other two were color commissions. Pencils done by Noel Rodriguez. I don't take many color commissions but I really dig his pencil work.

The inevitable

It's obvious to me now (more than ever) that if I want more work in this biz I'll have to move to California. The east coast is a dry, desolate wasteland for artists. Nobody actually wants to be a starving artist...I wanna be an overly fed, morbidly obese artist. Is that too much to ask? i don't think so. Hollywood, here I come. . .

Oh btw, this chick is part of some preliminary concepts for a project comin' to fruition.

Arrows, punks and coffee . . .

These first two were commissions and the chick with the coffee cup was a warm-up dedicated to a friend who bestowed the joy of starbucks upon me. Starbucks is from Heaven....they should serve it in Church.

Here and Gone. . .

Over the weekend I found out one of my good friends is expecting a baby...and another one of my good friends died. It's amazing how you can feel joy and sorrow in the same moment. . .how you can feel two completely different emotions simultaneously. Though these things are opposites they brought me to the same conclusion. Life is precious. . .meaningful. . .valuable. The start of life and the finish of life changes those closest to it forever. These monumental events and all moments in between can not be taken for granted.
I thank God for my life and the lives of my Wife and children. Congratulations Eric, your world is about to be reborn and I know you're ready for the journey. Tone Bing, you were one of the realest, coolest, funniest dudes I ever had the pleasure to call a close friend. My prayers go up for your family. you are missed.

Me VS. the World

It's quarter to 1 in the morning. . .I'm just sittin' down to work. It's been a long weekend. It's been a long month, actually. It's been one of those long, dangerous months. You know, when you don't know if you're gonna make it to the next month. . .like you might not come out of this one alive. of those months. Good times.

Anyway, here's a Commission I did for DJ Shwann of 2 of his OCs goin' at it jungle style.

Droppin' a Load. . .

Just a smidgen of what I've been doin' (...smidgen?).
Bat chicks, terminator samurai, smooth ex-cons...stuff like that. more to come.
It's gettin' harder to work on personal art these days. Between work and the kids it's difficult to get a real good pencil workout. But I guess I'd rather be Daddy than an art god.
...but I'm so close to art god though.

Reclusive. . .

I've been feeling really shut in lately. I think the extrovert in me packed up and quit. I just wanna' isolate myself in my office/living room and work for days at a time.
. . .i may be turning into a recluse. I really don't wanna be one of those old dudes with the wierd beard and piss/arm pit odor who only come out of the house to stock up on more cans of pork 'n' beans. I just don't wanna be that guy. And I'm comin' up on 30. . .that guy is right around the corner.
So yeah, I figured I should update this thing. It's been awhile. Here are a few commissions i did awhile back. More stuff comin' soon.
