Dinosaurs Fucking Robots!!!


That's Right!!! I've lowered myself one more step into human sludge by creating another obscene illustration. Damn me and the sick sense of humor that I have.

Inspirational quote by: Myla Kabat-Zinn

When I was sent a link to Dinosaurs Fucking Robots I knew that I had to submit an illustration. I don't remember having the intention to make it as elaborate and work so hard on it. BUT... I'm happy with what I came up with. Not exactly the best for a portfolio, but worth the effort to get more digital painting experience.
Thanks to Team Tiger Awesome for creating this brilliantly funny blog and allowing my submission to reach the eyes of the people.

Notes about the piece: I originally drew this with pencil on paper at roughly 8.5" x 11", then I scanned it at 300 dpi and colored it using a number of layers in Adobe's Photoshop 6.5 (I work oldschool. That's what the poor folk do.) with a WACOM tablet.

30 in Thirty Full Color Book Available!!

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.

My latest full color art book. This one is a collection of 30 paintings that I did in 30 days as a challenge for the Blank Space Gallery here in Seattle. The 30+ paintings and illustrations of monsters and other creatures here in this book are full sized reproductions of the original paintings. The book itself is full color, 70 pages perfect bound, and measures 8.5" x 11".

Ever since the completion of the paintings I wanted to make a catalogue of the whole set of paintings. All based of off creatures that I created originally for my daily comic (Lair of the Psychic Creature) I planned all thirty paintings to be seen together. And... since half of the original paintings have been sold, they'll NEVER be seen together EVER AGAIN! So catch them while you can here in this paperback collection.

I would like to think these colorful acrylic paintings should entertain anyone with a childlike appreciation of creatures and monsters as well as children.
