Friday Night Magic

Been very inspired by Magic: The Gathering lately.. a game that I was outrageously into as a child, and is now making a comeback into my adult life. Started Playing in 94 with the launch of Revised, and it dominated those years... after many years later, it's been a blast to dig back in.
There was something about the look of these cards when i was young, that really drew me into the world of illustration. Even looking at old cards and the artwork that goes with them.. brings back waves of memories that I thought I had forgotten.

New SP series

I realized recently I had not done a self portrait in years.. probably 6 or more. Remember back in art school, you'd have to crank out atleast one of these a week. Great for taking your time in understanding light and form. It also always makes me think of Andrew Jones doing 365 SP's in a row back in the day.. so in honor of ALL that, I am going to try to atleast do a self portrait once a month.

Hey all, just wanted to wish everyone a great holiday season! I just wanted to give a heads up that I will be unable to ship prints from 12/18 till after the new years. Just spending alot of time with family and I won't be hitting my email as often. After January though, I am going to have a bigger selection of prints available. I will definately post it on here when they are printed and ready to go!

We have launched! Pirate101 Early start has begun!

There is one great thing about working in this industry, and it is when years of hardwork payoff, into what is a shipped title, or in this case, your game going live. This morning, Pirate101 has officially launched! It's been an honor to work with some great people here at Kingsisle and I can only hope that it will be for many years more.

I started my own pirate this morning, playing the privateer class, so I hope to see and meet alot of people in my journey through this part of the spiral.

Like every launch, I have permission to release yet a few more piece. Since SO much has been released in the recent months, this release of work isn't quite so large. Enjoy!

One of the loadscreen's you will see many times ;)

Cool Ranch Concept for a cliffside dead end.

This piece is to be displayed on one of the King's walls in Monquista I believe. This piece was pretty amusing to do.

I don't post alot of these, but there are times when we need to concept out armor sets for the different worlds you run into. This one is a skull island themed Monquista set. We have to paint one for the boy and the girl when we design them

Old photo illustration for part of the clues to El Dorado.


Part of the series for Mustang Sally.

I hope everyone has a a chance to check out Pirate101. It seriously has been the most entertaining project I've worked on since joining this industry. It deserves any success it gets.

Little free time during lunch hours

Just wrapped up a piece I finished up during the past couple of lunch breaks. I started this I believe last week or so. I've only now realized that I keep drawing random girls in the woods with strange animals surrounding them. Something I may have to look into down the road ;)

BG Background

Here is the full illustration that lays in the background for pirate101 website. At first creation, we wanted the viewer to see more of the image, but in the end, most of it gets covered up.

There is also a large topic I want to sit down and write about also in the next few days. The topic is portfolio presentation, specifically to the game industry, but I am sure it will hit on portfolios for most job situations. I have to review quite a few portfolios on a daily basis, and there are just basics, that people seem to miss over and over. If it can help just one or two people in the creation of their own portfolios, then that will make me happy. So check back for that hopefully this week!

Yes, another update ;)

To keep the art posting going forward, here is another pretty quick concept done for Pirate, also posted on the website.

Pirate101 Splash Page

This image was created as the visual for the Pirate101 Website. I worked with the web team and creative to help piece this together so it could be animated in the end. All the ships were layered out properly, so web could do what they want with them. Was a fun image to work and showcases some of our star characters.

Buccaneer Class Trainer + Swashbuckler

Going to release these little by little over the new few months. You can see this work on the pirate101 website.. but I wanted to just showcase some higher res. work.

Buccaneer Class Trainer

Buccaneers are sturdy warriors who rely on brute strength to overcome their enemies. They wear the heaviest armor and carry the biggest weapons. What Buccaneers lack in grace or finesse they make up for with raw courage. Withstanding enemy attacks is the key to a Buccaneer's strategy.

Swashbuckler Class Trainer

Swashbucklers rely on speed and finesse in combat, sneaking up on their foes and striking by surprise, then dodging the enemy's attacks when they finally arrive. They are deadly with a blade, but not nearly as tough as a Buccaneer, sacrificing toughness for damage.

Pirate101 Announced!

Finally after over a year of concept work done, we have finally announced Pirate101 due out this year. It's been a great process and the amount of concept work piling up for it has been staggering. Be sure to check out the website @ for more info! There is some concept on the site.. some of it my own.. and some scattered other members of the team. Hopefully I should get approval soon to post some of it right here! in all its full rez detail ;)
Looking forward to the months to come.
