At Emerald City Comicon I was pleased to meet Matt Kindt, current writer on Rai.
My boys love to play Minecraft and I have admittedly spent way too many hours on the game myself. Last November I put this print together for the Jet City comicon in Tacoma WA – partially because my older son was excited about making Creeper pins out of perler beads and selling them at my table and I also thought it would be just fun to make this poster.
This is a painting I did as a Christmas present to my wife. She is a big fan of Harry Potter. It’s Acrylic on canvas 9″x24″. It took about 1 day – I started it on Christmas Eve day in the morning and had it wrapped for Christmas day.
Completed during 3-hour life drawing session. I used acrylic paints. Within the collage, the smaller pictures are 5 minute poses and the larger pictures were from 10-20 minute poses. I worked from the outside of the canvas toward the middle. The life drawing group not only gets me out of the house and interacting with people, it helps me build my skills for realistic representations of physical anatomy.

I joined a life drawing group this month to hone my skills. Periodically I will post updates of my progress.
These past few years I’ve been working with traditional paints. It started out with a single character painted on a comic backing board. Now I’ve moved onto stretched canvas. This was done in Acrylic. Maybe this time next year I’ll be working with oils.
