I went over to Pasadena earlier today to man my own table at the Rock N Comic Con...I do have to thank Eugene Booker for getting me in the con and getting me a booth. I sat next to two wonderful couple, Alex and Jules. Jules was selling some of her art and comics and her husband Alex was there for support. We had a cool time there...even thought the Con itself wasn't the greatest...but hey...got a free table out of it plus met some cool people there.
The image above is one of the sketches I did at the table. I have this idea that involves war and pigs...don't know why. This piece was done in straight inks and markers. Hope you all will like it? Have a great three day weekend!

Hey all, these pieces were done as demos for my students. It's Olaaf and Jorge the Dragon. Olaaf is into Black Metal and Jorge is....not. Jorge is a water dragon from somewhere in Spain...whom made his way into Scandinavia...because he likes the cold weather.
These pieces were drawen onto thin chipboard with a graphic pencil. I used a dark brown ink for the washes and use gouche and a white Prisma color pencil for the high lights. Let me know what you think? These pieces were fun to do.
There will be a comic book convention in Pasadena this weekend. Don't know if I'll be attending? Gotta see if I'll have time to go. Here's a link to the convention site, Rock N Comic Con
Well, I'll catch you later.

Hello all, here's some acrylic paintings that I did on black boards. As you can see they're images of funky monsters. Under a black light these pieces actually glow in the dark. These were done for a Haunted House for PS3(Public School 3) a school in the West Village (NYC). I got a very good response from the parents and kiddies from the school. These pieces might get auctioned off to help raise funds for the PS3. We gotta help the kiddies! Well, I'll catch you all later.
