Another cover for the Ben Winters series from Quirk publishing. It's a nice opportunity to have fun with my oil paints and to make that android as sexy as possible (with a dash of propriety, of course). Doogie Horner was the fantastic art director.

A sampling of spot illustrations for the Top 25 college football countdown for the Los Angeles Times.
Apparently that is a mildly insulting term used for a "posh boy" in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. It's always a pleasure to draw a dandy. Appearing in Cincinnati Magazine.

Apparently because it's very strenuous. Performing his work night after night would take a heavy toll. I've been waiting for an opportunity to draw a singing Valkyrie for years. This is for the Dr. Know column in Cincinnati Magazine.
It feels good to draw from the model, something I haven't done for a while. I like to balance out my conceptual and character illustrations with drawings from real life, even though there tend to be fewer vikings and seamonsters in the real world. I'm fortunate that there's a nearby life drawing session in Northern Liberties every week. It really keeps me observant.

I love to draw in museums. Today I packed my sketchbook and took a trip to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. They were closing when I began to hit my stride, so I'll have to make a trip back.

These pictures were from a recent trip to Sri Lanka. It's not a very big island, but it has a huge range of different landscapes with a lot to see. It's a very beautiful and friendly country.
