Turkey Vulture Sketch

So my wife got me into bird watching some years ago. We've seen our fair share of goodies over the past couple of years . So I decided to start drawing these guys up one at a time. First one on the list...ye' ole nasty carrion munching Turkey Vulture. It's a work in progress...can't wait to finish this guy up and move on to the next.

Rupert the Cat

Rupert was a cat I had for 11 years. I found him in a dumpster in Chicago. He was in a closed cardboard cat carrier with the name "Rupert" written on it. The little guy was pretty gnarly looking and I was pretty sure he wouldn't last too long. Lots of vet visits and lots of love let him live a happy and healthy 11 years under our watch. This is the first of many illustrations I'll be working on to tell his back story of what his life was like before he made it to the big city. He was a one of a kind mysterious forest cat that I'm honored to have the luxury of living with as long as I did.

SDCC Business Cards

Decided to hand draw my business cards for Comic-Con this year. I started photographing them after I ran out of the first 10 I made. Skipped a few here and there but this is pretty much what they ended up looking like. I don't think I've written my name this much since grade school. Yowza! It was mad fun making these.


Toot is a 3 legged, deaf, Bull Terrier a friend of ours has the luxury of living with. He's been deaf since birth and lost his leg due to a botched surgery around 2 years ago. He's the happiest little dude around and doesn't miss his hearing, or leg one bit.

I did this illustration for him as return favor for the awesome Painting he did for me of my 4 legged homie...Hogan.
