Location: New England, United States

I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

A page of my sketchbook...

T-Rex(sketchbook page)Been a little hectic. Don't worry, I'll be back to a painting a day soonish. Just putting out a few fires, doing errands and planning some work I am doing. So here's a quick peek into a sketchbook page. I did this while waiting for my car to have an oil change, and as it turned out, it will be encorprated into a larger painting of...a T-Rex! I did this in carbon pencil, brown to be exact. Sketchbooks are wonderful ways for artists to jot down ideas fast or, sketch a scene fast. So enjoy! The paintings will be back soon!

Thanks Julie! I always tend to lean toward Ray Harryhausen in my dino works, only because I always think what we think they looked like probably looks better than the reality.One theory had the T-Rex as kind of a wuss! Yikes! Also, I once had a chat with Harryhausen and he and I agree dinos looked better with their TAILS on the ground! No matter what the science says to the contrary!
