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!)

Flying Dragons and Japanese Superheroes!

"Honeymoon Flight" (oils, 8x10, SOLD!)

"Goldar" (oils, 8x10, SOLD)

You can make your own story up for "Honeymoon Flight". I wanted to paint some clouds and wow...Dragons got in there!!!

Goldar is a superhero from Japan, around 1966-67, from a show called SPACE GIANTS. Once again, a superhero from the stars, who can morph(the first Transformer!) into a rocketship, comes to earth to battle monsters plaguing Japan mostly....I always felt Goldar has a vagure resemblance to me...with the hair ya see...

Star Dragon Study(8x10 oils) SOLD.
I sorta did this one, because it was promised to someone who wanted the previous dragon!! And, I offered it to them, first, in order of request. Not to worry, I'll be painting alot more, as they are so much fun to do. Between all my other things I'm currently doing!
