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!)

The Dreambeast....

A painting in oils, for a Mike Resnick collection. In this, the crew of a spaceship is hunting the mythical "Dreambeast", a monster that lives near a black hole in space. Mike was fairly vague on his description. He said it was "roughly round with a reddish tint". Okay so I ran with this and wanted to imply a cross between a tadpole and a dragon. Lots of fun to paint and it came together in short order, which made the publisher happy!!!
