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 X From Outer Space. Conte on paper, w/ mat 18 x 24 inches. $120.

In 1967, Shochiku Company of Japan entered the Kaiju genre with what may be the goofiest monster ever: Guilala. It was a one shot film that had a weird charm for the time, garish colors and fun FX work. In 2006 a sequel/send up of the film was made in Japan. Anyway, this is a drawing I did of the titular spore-based creature known affectionately as the giant chicken monster from space.
