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!)

So I painted this VERY thickly with alot of medium to make the paint buttery, and I textured up the board with modeling paste and gesso. Dying to know what was inside? So was I and then cut it open and ate it. Tommorrow I'll show you what the inside looks like. Til' then...
