Good morning peoples.
I had a great Thanksgiving. Many thanks were given for family, friends, love and the nice things I have in my life. This isn’t the only time of year I like to reflect on all the good things I have to be grateful for.
Anywho, Sketchfest is happening and I’m participating. Go on over this weekend and join the sketchy fun. My favorite prompt so far is Black Friday Zombie… which wasn’t too hard to imagine!!
I’ll be putting up sketches and ink drawings for sale at my Sketchfest page and my Etsy shop. Etsy shoppers can use the coupon code TURKEY in my shop to save 20% off on art and prints. This coupon will be active through November 30.
Sketches and ink drawings from this weekend so far are below the cut. And as usual, thank you for visiting!
For a while, I tried to update every week, however it seems once a month is a lot more comfortable for me.
The last month has been lovely. Las Vegas Comic Expo was AMAZING. I sincerely hope they have it again, and I was pleased with the Riviera convention space. I did VERY well, and already have ideas for next year. I spent a week in Maui Hawaii on vacation with my fiance and his family. It was a lovely slow moving break from the fast pace my life has been gaining. And this last weekend was Anime Vegas. I usually go for Saturday and Sunday, but I could only make it to Sunday. I’m not sure how I feel about Cashman Center, but I did like that it’s more space than Alexis Park.
In site news, I updated with a new page, a portfolio for Graphic Design. I’ve been meaning to do this for… well, years now, and finally just collected the work and threw it down.
In art stuff, I’m working on a few projects that I actually can’t show the progress on yet. A graphic design mascot, some concept art for a potential comic, and some scripts for hopefully my own novel/comic. I do have some art in the Gallery at EMG-Zine this month though, so have a looksy.
That’s about it for the time being. And now, I have an abysmal email pile-up I need to clean…
I realized I hadn’t posted this yet even though I finished it about a month ago.
It’s based on the legend Beauty and the Beast…. aaaand I thought it would be more better if the beast were a dragon.
Anywho, it’s drawn in my favorite media, pen with marker and gel pen. I took scans of it for a marker walkthrough, and may be posting it later.
Thanks for looking! 🙂
So most folks have heard by now, but the Comic Expo has moved to the Riviera.
The venue change means I have also moved! I will be at Artist Alley Table T20.
Here are some other peeps to check out while you’re there!!!

So a while back, in July I think, there was a contest on Deviantart for a mythological character T-shirt design. I wanted to do a phoenix and didn’t finish in time, the deadline was the week of my vacation, but I finished it much later. I put it up for sale on Zazzle and the drawing was featured in EMG Zine this month.
In other news, I’m super excited I got artist alley space at the Las Vegas Comic Expo this month! I’ll be in T51 in the Zeus room. Some friends of mine will be there too, such as Derrick and the crew from Comic Oasis in booths 40 and 41. I have a lot to get done for the convention, but I think I’ll manage to be ready with everything that weekend. I may or may not cosplay, we’ll see. So excited!
About this time last thursday, I was putting the finishing touches on my set up for RAW: RADIATE art show. I had a GREAT time. I met TONS of people. I even got invited to two more shows through folks I met, which I’ll throw more details on the website for once there’s more info.
It’s great to see the RAW shows have taken off like they have. I was an exhibition artist at the first RAW in Las Vegas, and as much it was fun, it didn’t have the attention it does now. Downtown galleries were there looking for artists with their flavor. Bloggers were there. Even the artists there seemed to feel more comfortable there even if it was their first show.
I had visited a couple of times while it was at Tommy Rockers, but hadn’t visited as a guest since it moved to Royal House. I’m sure it would be a very different experience! An experiment for next month. 🙂
I’ll be exhibiting at the Royal House (formerly the Royal Resort) in this month’s RAW show, RADIATE.
It’s on August 23rd, and tickets are $10 each and can be purchased through: my profile on the RAW site. Entry is $15 at the door without a pre-purchased ticket.
If you can’t come in person, or live too far away, I’ll send you your choice of three 4×6 prints if you still buy a ticket to support the show. Contact me for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
This would be my second time working with the RAW folks here in Las Vegas, and my fifth time visiting the show. The shows are great fun, and I never leave disappointed. 🙂
I added two color portraits and three ink portraits to portrait adoption. One of them I recorded video to make a time lapse with. The video and the other portraits are below the cut. Thank you for looking!
I’ve updated Etsy with a handful of prints, original art cards and print cards. There are also some items marked down for clearance. Here’s a sampling:

I am also posting some small manageable commissions after the cut if anyone is interested in custom art from me. Thank you for looking!
I spent the last few days in Cambria, California. Pictures and more beneath the cut.
