Martial Masters

Working on a series of tonal portraits of martial arts masters from the ages.

Here are the first two.

First the extremely great internal master Bruce Frantzis


Second the man the brought Ip Man back to life Donnie Yen


There are many more to come and they will all eventually be for sale as prints. When that is happening I am sure I will make a post about it :)

The airbrush is my ally and a powerful ally it is!

Some recent works I have done. I started watching and listening to the Vlogs of Jeff Lafferty as I was working and got all inspired to do some traditional stuff again just for myself as most of the work I have done in the last year has been commissions and all digital at that. Jeff is a fantastic artist, go check him out here.


A work in progress of Grand Master Yoda, I think I will only take this one as far as black and white paint though, but who knows.


Terminator inspired, if you have any interest in the process of how I made it you can go here.

Remember 2014? Seems like a long time ago now.

Here are some sketches I did during the long long ago, before the poccylips (if you get that reference we can be friends)

Recent sketches

Hello all and sundry, how are your faces? Well I hope.

As the title totally gives it away, here are some sketches from ye olde sketchbook.

I have been mostly rocking the old blue animation pencil, I seem to like it more now than I did back in college

"You're not gonna put this on the internet right?"

For those that despise technology that doesn't work properly and... being the thing

I have been thinking about making a manual for turning lights on and off, just for me

The joys of big boobs and taking the weight off

Anytime I draw a watch or clock, I can never decide what time it should be

See, the body parts are tattooed and make the.... ya you get it

Jack is even more back... again

Well those cheery chaps that hired me to create illustrations of Jack asked me to do two more because the first ones worked out so well



The second one they asked for is a repaint of an old book cover

They liked the first ones so much they sent me a t shirt for free, what nice guys they are
