Name:
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!)

New Mexico, Dinos, Mammoths & Dragons...






Here's some pix of New Mexico, at Bubonicon and, Albuquerque's Natural History Museum. Top is me with a Mastodon(Gompotherium species) skeleton, next is a panel at the con on working for the movies-I'm chatting with former Star Trek: The Next Generation story editor and writer, Melinda Snodgrass whom I got to know more after many years of being in the same room at the same time! Next is a drawing demo I did-a dragon in an hour(it sold at the con) and below that, a terrific diorama of an Allosaur skeleton attacking a Stegosaur skeleton. The museum is one of the very best and they have a full scale skeleton of a Seisemosaur(the largest Sauropod dinosaur!!!) on display. I last saw this very skeleton in Japan in 2002. Below is a sculpture of a Pentaceratops outside the museum!! What an amazing place to spend hours in. I'm a big fan of Natural History museums(Creationists-get a clue, evolution is a fact!) and this one really is in my top ten now!
