Battle Wizard Hobbit

So I'm trying something different...again. I WAS doing an image for the Battle Witches Blog, but it ended up as a Battle Wizard Hobbit...Anyhoo, it may be a miss for that blog, but it's my cutest pig painting ever!!

A quick note... The book will be  available to purchase via and either tonight or tomorrow morning. I was going to launch it at the CTN EXPO show in a few weeks, but I've had enough people ask me about it that I've chosen to make online purchasing available earlier.

Again, stay tuned in the next day or so when I'll post links.

Hey Everybody!

I've been super bust lately putting together my new artbook which will debut and be for sale at CTN Expo next month. Just about everything's done, but tonight I'm working on some small tweaks on the cover image which I have been spending extra time on to get just right. While I'll upload the whole thing tomorrow night, here's a small snippet of a teaser of that cover image.

Mega Dump!!

So it's about time for a mega dump!! Ok that sounds gross now that I've typed it out....Anyhoo, here's a bunch of released Cute But Deadly character designs I created while working in CDEV at Blizzard. There's more coming, but these are the only ones shown publicly so far so they're thusly the only ones that I can post.

Here's a bunch of somewhat old work I have previously only released in my sketchbooks.

Here's another piece that has only ever been previously seen in my sketchbooks. It's Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell.

Lastly, this is a quickie sketch I made for my Friend, teacher and boss, Glenn Rane to thank him for everything he's done to help me over the years.

Day Three: The Distinguished Mr. Fox

Day three's doodle is the result of my being in the midst of reading Doris Kearn Goodwin's Bully Pulpit. Teddy Roosevelt and Taft are just so much more interesting than I had initially imagined their intertwining stories to be...and thusly it has influenced my time spent scratching out doodles. I debated calling this Foxy Roosevelt...but being foxy is probably something Mr. Roosevelt was not. In any regard, I wanted to draw a distinguished mustachioed fox, wearing a suit and smoking a pipe.....though to be honest now that I think about it, Teddy Roosevelt didn't Well then pay my attempt at a brief history lesson no mind...this doodle has no historical significance is however, classy. Partly.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Box Art

What they ended up printing looks quite different than my final submitted art, but I don't think it ended up being a total disaster.

Day Two: Joey "The Fish" ....The Bird

Day Two has brought upon the desire in me to portray the most angry, aggressive, and possible baseball-bat-wielding bird ever seen in the jungles of Queens. He's only been seen once, outside a McDonalds, screeching melodically, as if to voice the warning that, "They F*** you at the drivethru."

(Pesci means fish.)

Day One: Accidental Miley

So I've been drawing up a storm lately. I've been trying to find my mojo via attempting to produce an achievable and fun project. In the midst of exploring a ton of character ideas, I drew this. YES. It turns out that I accidentally drew a certain rambunctious immature pop star. Now those that know me, know that Pop is my mortal enemy, and still...I don't hate this. Meh, anyway I hope to increase my posted scanned drawing content by posting at least a doodle a day. And this is Day One's doodle.

Blizzcon 2013 Lost Vikings Demo

So this past November, at Blizzcon 2013, I once again took part in the Artist Stage event. This time I contributed by first at home creating new character designs for The Lost Vikings, which I have aptly titled "The Lozt Vikings." Then, on stage I created a drawing of these characters that could be auctioned off to the highest bidder for charity. Now that the holidays are over, I've taken the time to complete a color version of that drawing.
