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!)

So here are two new paintings both done for the Rotofugi show in Chicago called TOY KARMA 2. Both are for sale, but if interested contact Rotofugi for the price. If they don't sell, I'll re-post later with prices. Rotofugi is a store/gallery in Chicago that specializes in Designer Vinyl toys. They have some neat stuff and the show will be an outstanding one.

Ice Age America...

Here are a couple of drawings for the upcoming BOB EGGLETON'S ICE AGE AMERICA which will be a book from Impossible Dreams Press, due out in 2012(Mayan calendars notwithstanding). It will be written by my wife Marianne, and will feature North America, circa 13,000 years ago. It will have some EPIC large paintings in it, so get ready for those. The feel of the book will cross the lines of fact and science as we know it, to a little fantasy and romantic feeling. We have a publisher who sees our vision and that's really a good feeling.

Rocket Days of Summer..

15x30 oil painting, done for the R.A.Heinlein combo "Green Hills of Earth/Menace from Earth" Here is an example of how I can have a sketchbook drawing and make it work into a nice cover for a classic book. And it just kind of sums up summer's "rocket" days doesn't it?
