Abe Sapien

Here is a painting just recently finished of everyone's favorite amphibian humanoid. He has some great colors, so naturally I had a blast experimenting with this one. I was going to do something different with the background, maybe put in some bubbles or some swirling currents or something like that, but as I came closer to finishing I liked the way he seems to pop out of the darkness. It would be as if he took one step back the darkness would swallow Abe up completely.

Classic Sci-Fi and Horror Movie Poster Sketch Cards

Above are some of the over sized (3x5) sketch cards that I did for the Classic Sci-Fi and Horror set released not too long ago by Breygent Marketing. As you can well imagine, this was a spectacularly fun set to work on and it was great to be a part of. I do have one Artist Proof card from this set that is not shown here and if anyone is interested, just send me a message.

Chicagoland Entertainment Collectors Expo 2010

Fresh off my appearance at the Durand Fantasy Expo, I will now be heading to the Chicago area (Carol Stream, IL) for the Chicagoland Entertainment Collectors Expo this Thursday through Sunday. Way back in the winter, February or March, I think, I did a few sketch cards for their Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation event. You can get more info at their website. The sketch cards are shown above. I believe that I just heard recently that some of these are still pending for approval by the various licensees, but should be available in time for the event. Just so you know. Back when I did these I really had no idea that I would actually be in attendance for this show, but things fell into place and lo and behold, I will be now. So, stop by and say hello.

The Durand Fantasy Expo 2010

No artwork this time, just a quick note to say that I will be at the Durand Fantasy Expo this Saturday, the 4th from 10am until 5pm. Durand is located near Flint, Mi for those in the area and you can check out all the details here. Stop on by and say hello. I don't bite. Well, I usually don't draw blood.
