Happy Halloween

In honor of the occasion, here are a couple of "scary" illustrations I've done:

This one's not so scary, but Dali could definitely be macabre:

For the kids, here's the Roboy Red Halloween story John Gallagher and I did last year (click on the images for larger sizes):

And for more monster fun, you can also order the all ages graphic novel, Buzzboy: Monsters, Dreams & Milkshakes, that I worked on with John a couple of years ago. Just go to www.skydogcomics.com!

Happy Halloween!

Ben for my Birthday

Ok, well, it's been over a month since I last posted, and since that time, my life has changed immensely, for the better! As I mentioned in my last post, my wife and I were expecting our first child, and on September 19th, our son was born. It's been incredibly busy since then, as I'm sure anyone who has had kids can imagine. Work has been mostly pushed aside, but I have managed to get some of it finished. Since today is my birthday, I thought this might be a good time to catch up, and post some new art.

The below is a detail taken from a larger illustration I did for a client. I'll post the finished work soon, but I thought it might be interesting to give a sneak peek at part of it.

And just to tie up everything, here are couple of quotes from Franklin, regarding age:

"All would live long, but none would be old."


"At 20 years of age the will reigns, at 30 the wit, at 40 the judgment."

Benjamin Franklin - US author, diplomat, inventor, physicist, politician, & printer (1706 - 1790)

One hint: I'm closer to having more judgment than will. ;-)
