Hey Guys!

Wrapped up my first con last weekend and it was so much more than what I could have hoped for. I had no idea what to expect when, no idea how many prints to order. I sold out of one print the first day and sold a canvas print before noon! I was so pumped. I brought 200 business cards and ran out the first day too. Looks like next time I'll need to bring more stuff.


Hey guys!

It's been a few months. Ok it's been waaaay too long, but let me explain. I've been doing a mentorship with Magic:the Gathering artist Peter Mohrbacher! It's been really intense for the past 10 weeks, but I'm finally ready to start posting some new stuff. Hope you enjoy.

Also, I'll be doing my first convension in April. It's a local show, Cherry City Comic Con in Salem, Oregon. I'll be selling art prints. Not likely, but if you happen to be in the area please stop by and say hello!

Hey guys!

Just signed up for Chris Oatley's Magic Box digital painting class. His videos are clear and very helpful. The content is a little advanced so if you don't know how to use photoshop this class might be hard for you. However if you're an intermediate photoshop painter and want to get better quickly check out this class!

Greetings everyone!

I'm making an advancement in creating my setting and attending this 6 week long seminar:



It is taught by Sean Andrew Murray creater of Gateway: The Book of Wizards which is set for a Q2 2014 release and looks amazing. I'm very inspired by his work and look forward to learning from him. 

I'll post more as things unfold and we get closer to the seminar date.
