My Piece for the Mythical Creatures Art Show


Here goes a piece that I completed for the up and coming Mythical Creatures, Group Art Show at Sideshow Gallery. Opening night will be Saturday, April 23rd from 7 to 11pm. The piece was completed pretty quick with just a brush and ink on paper. I like to work this way without underlying pencils to have that inspirational feel to a piece sometimes. Hope to see you at opening night.

A Very Quick Warm Up Painting

Here's just a super quick warm up, I painted yesterday early morning. I figured I would post it since I have not post any art in a good while, due to working on a few projects that I have non disclosure agreements on that have been consuming a majority of my time as of late…

Forgot all about this..... I received this in the mail, sometime last week.
It should prove to be a strong showing this year. If free the weekend of
the convention, try to make it out. You'll be sure to have a good time.

I'll be super tied up with other projects currently in the works but I may still try to be at the
Anomaly booth, http://www.experienceanomaly.com/anomaly/ at least one day of the show.
No promises though, still trying my best but stop by and say hi nonetheless :)

My Halloween Session @ Atomic Sketch


Here's another quickie from when I was on the Artists Panel, at last month's Halloween Atomic Sketch session. I did this one as a warm up straight from a brush with ink. Sorry for such a bad pic but it sold before I could snap a still of it. The person that bought it from me was nice enough to send me this shot. She took it while I was in the process of creating it.

This may also be used as a reference point for a mural project that I will head. It will be placed on the wall of a VIP room in a new downtown Chicago dance club that will be opening next year.

My Halloween Session @ Atomic Sketch


Just grabbed this from an email today. A friend of mine sent it my way. It was a quick piece I created with ink and brush while on the artist panel at the Halloween Atomic Sketch session, a couple of weeks ago. I ended up selling it and the others I created that evening. I unfortunately forgot to take pictures of all my art that night... If anyone snapped any, would you be so kind as to please forward my way.

THE ANNUAL DARK ARTS EXHIBITION "CURIODDITES"


I am very pleased to announce that I will be a featured artist at this years ANNUAL DARK ARTS EXHIBITION "CURIODDITES", hosted by the world famous Gallery Provocateur.

I am also happy to announce that I will also be hosting the Official Book Release to Little Book of Monsters volume 2, this evening and In celebration of this release, I was fortunate enough to bring to the walls of the gallery, artists from this volume as well.

The Opening Cocktail Reception that opens the show is this up and coming Saturday, November 7th. The Gallery doors will open at 8:00PM.

Gallery Provocateur is located at:
1621 N Kedzie Ave, Chicago, IL 60647 (773) 698-7179

This is somewhat of a special show for me, due to a few other artists that have had there work also shown in the gallery. These artists helped show me the road to becoming an artist myself and finding my way into this genre of art.

These legendary artists consisted of Frank Frazetta, H.R. Giger, Boris Vallejo and Clive Barker. Four of the most influential artists from my past. It is a great honor to also be displayed on these walls and I hope you can find the time to visit this evening.

The Official website for the show can be found below,
