I do both digital and “real world” painting, and the occasional mashup for fun:


This was a commission for Second Geekhood. We did a photo shoot so I’d have good reference material, then I did this painting based on those. It took an evening to do the photo shoot, and another four days to do the painting. There are problems with it, but I’m probably the only one outside of a more skilled illustrator that can see them.


Painted for a friend, Jim Davis (no, not the creator of Garfield) for his 50th birthday. Acrylic on canvas – it was the first time I’d tried to paint anyone’s likeness in perhaps 30 years, so I’m not as happy with it as I’ve been with other things I’ve done. He loved it, though.

Painted as a birthday present for another friend, Susan Fox. Acrylic on canvas, 11″x14″.



More speed painting. Done actual size in the Gimp, about 15 minutes work.
