...was initially for pieces done on a computer, but has since become a free-for-all. Here you'll find process work (digital and otherwise), sketch pages and studies, sometimes with commentary.

You can see the rest of my work here.

Remember kids : if you can't make pretty designs, at least make pretty lines!

Great sketch man! so, how's cali treating you so far?
Hey quick question for you, I was re-reading your site and advices. You talk about references, influences and research. But how do you do to avoid to be too influenced?
I noticed that when I draw or paint I feel like I'm copying someone works or that what I do is "deja vu", see what I mean? I know it's almost impossible to be original and that everything as being done before. Do you have a specific thought that you follow? or you are just plain genius? what's your trick to be so creative, uh?
thanks for been so inspirational, by the way!

There's something I heard from some artist or book or something. "There's only ONE way to do anything, and that's the *best* way." So just do things they way you think they should be done, and if they don't look as kickass as you'd hoped, ask yourself how they could be improved upon. THEN DO THAT.
