Pictures of my Studio

I really love it when I visit an artist's website and they show images of their working spaces. For some reason it fascinates me to see where creative people work. So, I thought I'd return the favor and post some shots of my own home studio. My lovely wife was cool enough to let me turn one of the bedrooms in our new home into a work place for me to draw and do design work. I built wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling shelves to hold all my comic book stuff, toys and movies. So check it out!

New Autumn Artwork

I decided to change my homepage up a bit and start featuring one large drawing. Right now my plan is to change it for each season, that way it'll get a new look every three months and I'll get motivation to work on something new. I knocked this autumn one out fairly quickly, it's amazing how fast you can work once you get the bug. It started with a simple sketch that I imported into Illustrator and drew over. I think it came out pretty good. I wanted an "Autumn in New York" feel. Click on th thumbnail for a lager view.
