Happy Holidays

I must apologize for the criminal lack of updates in November.
Work has been rather hectic lately with some pretty tight deadlines. Besides that, a slew of awesome games just came out in time for Christmas, so quite a bit of my time has been spent.... "researching".

No more excuses... I've got a few WIP pieces that I hope to finish by the end of the year.

Till then, hope the holidays bring you no worries...

Autumn Cometh...

Broke off from the group early and did this at the Cafeteria Lawn.
Robh is at the forefront of a Digital Landscape Revolution!
I feel like a dinosaur with me old gouache and oil sets... :)


I really was just sketching a seascape.... then the Dragons showed up...

Plein Air Sketches

Lately I've had some free time on my hands... so I get to go out and paint a little.
Its just so hot out, and my fear of the West Nile Virus does hinder my drive to paint somewhat. Looking forward to much nicer weather in the Fall, and autumn colors...

Work's kinda slow lately... time for a quick paint!
Been listening to the Shadow of Colossus Soundtrack...

Here is my re-intepretation of that fantastic game.

Morning Commute

20min speedy before work...
Stopped at a red light and stared at this spot along Beverly Glen during my morning commute. Can't remember exactly what the sky looked like... The scene was quite contrasty though.. if I remember correctly...

Hola Everyone!
I've had this story swirling in my head for some time now. The Adventures of Captain Fishsticks. It's about a girl and her friend exploring the nooks and crannies of an apartment complex like Kowloon Walled City... I have more from this series, will post more!

Green Mts, Blue Bisons

Remember those blue cows in Laputa? They were so cool.
I made mine here more Bison-like...
Man, I can paint mountains all day.

Hong Kong

I left Hong Kong when I was 8. I tried to recapture what I felt there... the sounds, the weather, the smell.. .ahh, that sewage smell... If only we have smell-o-vision...

City Block

Another attempt at a more graphic approach.
This one started out as a quickie thumb too.

Travellers in the Snow

I figure I'd post some newer stuff on the blog.
Trying for a more graphic approach to my work lately.

Smoggy City

Did this last year for a homework assignment in Landscape class with Robh. We went to Chinatown to do some field research. Even had Dim Sum for lunch. Honestly, one of the most enjoyable classes I have ever taken. You get to paint on location with your friends, and have Dim Sum... can't really ask for more.

Don't think I got the take-home part of the assignment quite right. Doesn't look Chinatown-ish. I was more inspired by Sparth's work at that time.

A quick sketch tribute to the great Miyazaki...
Did this after a day of hardcore Sci Fi stuff at work last year...

I did these for a scholarship show at Art Center last year.
Thanks to all my friends and teachers for their help and feedback!


Here are a couple of images from The Persephone project. Persephone represents Spring and gets kidnapped by Hades to become his urm, slave...

Here are a couple of Dune environments I did last year in Robh Ruppel's Vis Dev class. Arrakis and Caladan.
