Eurocon Banner





Really awesome banner by my buddy, Jason Seiler. It was so great to be part of this line up of incredible artist/caricaturist. Vienna was amazing as well as their beer and sausage. I ate way too much sausage.

This is a video of me last year being interviewed by Wilfred Lee from Seoul South Korea. We talk about Beasted the book, caricature theory, and life. Some times there are breaks in the video but that is part of our connection problem that was recorded during the conversation. Hope you enjoy!

Chem trails to an end

It is truly amazing how we humans some how come together to help find solutions to big problems with different reasons for why we participate. In doing so, We see so many perspectives that give us more angles and edges on what can and will be done, leading to the best idea to solve the problem. Whether you're a sceptic or open-minded, this interview will give you a great perspective positively and spread some much needed awareness your way. For the sake of our awesome skies and the food that we eat, I encourage you to listen to this important conversation. And by the way, chem trails are real, just do your research, go outside, look up, study all the planes you see, give it some time and see if anything makes sense

Amy Aboud owns a part of BEASTED!






Amy Aboud just recently purchased my original Bob Marley pecil/marker/pen caricature sketch from my new book BEASTED. Plus she got the progress spread print that goes with it, how awesome!!! It's so cool to see someone holding and owning my book let alone a piece from it. It means a lot, that piece is one of my personal favorites


Amy Aboud also own's my intro JFK quote page from BEASTED. It was in the ISCA( international society of caricature artist) awards banquet auction during an awards ceremony and she won the bid! So cool! Thanks AGain Amy!

BOLT



I recently got back into drawing on Caricaturama 3000 and got second place with this sketch of Usain Bolt. I didn't really know him and what he sounds like and what he looks like maybe because most of the time he is just a blur.... I watched many videos of him and while I watched, I absorbed. Then I sketched. I came up with some different ideas but I really just wanted a head shot, maybe with his shoulders included because they really tell more about him and make his neck and head more interesting. I then wanted to catch that thick Jamaican voice he has. A lot of times when I try and get a voice I think of how I sound, then try and match it with the sound that the subject makes. Once I figure that out, I understand my mechanics of how I make myself form into something similar as my subject to then put that into my sketch. On this one I put my chin down and lowered my Jaw to find the thick deep voice sound. All and all there are many decisions I could have done different but overall for the time I had, I'm happy with the likeness at this perspective.

LARRY BIRD SPREAD





This is a spread in my book BEASTED showing the progress, process, and ideas on the right half that led to the final piece which is what you see on the left half. As an artist with a sketchbook, I enjoy looking at other artist' sketchbooks and seeing their ideas and what their creative insights look like before they turn into the final decision. 
As most of us know, we are mostly all afraid to show our beginning stages of potential finished pieces or what some might just say '' Aww, these are nothing, just little doodles or scritch scratch''. But, to mostly everyone else, they might be awesome ideas and cool to look at.
I still don't like people looking at my sketches to this day and for 2 reasons. It's not finished and because It's my idea, I don't want it taken from me and used before it becomes finalized. Sounds stingy....
So for the book I put those sketches on every spread for everyone to enjoy, especially you sketch book lovers.
