Ol George


When I was young I remember my dad sending me to my room cause he didn't want me to hear Georges' Carlin at Carnegie comedy special. So I stayed up and listened to the whole thing from under the door of my bedroom. It was hilarious and i have been a fan of Carlin ever since! So when i got the chance to paint him in my Illustration class I did it and I'm really happy how it turned out! O yeah its painted in Oils!

All Because of You

This piece was inspired by one of my favorite Rise Against songs "The good left undone" this project was particularly fun to illustrate a part of a story so I thought a song would be the best kind of story I could find would be from a song and this one was perfect! Posted below are the lyrics so people who have not heard the song can get a better understanding of the piece!


In fields where nothing grew but weeds,
I found a flower at my feet,
Bending there in my direction,
I wrapped a hand around its stem,
I pulled until the roots gave in,
Finding there what I’d been missing,

But I know…
So I tell myself, I tell myself it’s wrong.
There’s a point we pass from which we can’t return.
I felt the cold rain of the coming storm.

All because of you,
I haven’t slept in so long.
When I do I dream of drowning in the ocean,
Longing for the shore where I can lay my head down,
I’ll follow your voice,
All you have to do is shout it out.

Inside my hands these petals browned,
Dried up, fallen to the ground
But it was already too late now.
I pushed my fingers through the earth,
Returned this flower to the dirt,
So it could live. I walked away now.

But I know…
Not a day goes by that I don’t feel this burn.
There’s a point we pass from which we can’t return.
I felt the cold rain of the coming storm.

All because of you,
I haven’t slept in so long,
When I do I dream of drowning in the ocean,
Longing for the shore where I can lay my head down,
I’ll follow your voice,
All you have to do is shout it out.

All because of you…
All because of you…

All because of you,
I haven’t slept in so long.
When I do I dream of drowning in the ocean,
Longing for the shore where I can lay my head down,
Inside these arms of yours.

All because of you,
I believe in angels.
Not the kind with wings,
No, not the kind with halos,
The kind that bring you home,
When home becomes a strange place.
I’ll follow your voice,
All you have to do is shout it out.

Holy Schnickes! I finished it!

This piece of the late and great Chris Farley I made for a "Childhood Inspirations" Gallery I couldn't think of anything better to do than a piece from Tommy Boy one of my favorite movies to watch since I was a kid. Me and my Dad could probably win a trivia game of this movie since we have seen it so many times! Be on the lookout for a Ace Ventura Piece I am working on for the same gallery, Seeing a trend!?!!

Holy Schnickes!

Lunar/Solar

While working on a reciprocal project for my Digital Design Class my teacher asked me to "Practically Apply" my piece as if it was an illustration for something so i thought why not make it a band poster! woo hooo!!!!!!! Music!!!!!!


I have always enjoyed doing music related art so I thought it was perfect to make a Between The Buried And Me tour poster out of this project and it fit this band perfectly! the final turned out soo much better than I expected since i was trying out this style!

Roswell UFO Festival Poster


This was a poster design project I did for Roswell's UFO Festival. I had a ton of fun with the research of the "Roswell incident" and I'm not saying it was Aliens. . . but it was Aliens.
This composition went through several stages due to critique and such but this was the initial sketch

Once I started the digital process you may notice the guy in the background appeared out of nowhere!! That idea came from an suggestion to tie it more to the festival and less about random aliens in the desert! so i thought how about adding a alien crazed party animal from the festival who just so happens to run into some aliens!! and thats how that guy came to be I hope you like it!

And the final!!!!
