Short Feature on Muddy Colors Blog

Hey everyone,

A short feature on one my pieces, Among Ghosts, just went up over at Muddy Colors. Muddy Colors is a blog run by some of the top illustrators from around the world. Unlike me, they update regularly with new art and some behind the scenes action on how they do their work!

In my feature, I cover briefly the steps I take when doing illustration work for clients and show you some of my early sketches and also what I do to quickly get inspired and motivated to work on a piece. Jump over to Muddy Colors for the full feature.

Recent Video Game Work

Here is some recent work (2009) that I did over at Massive Black that I am now allowed to show.

Here's a Game Informer cover I worked on with Mike Bierek for Visceral's Dead Space 2. The basic background and unposed, untextured space suit were provided by Visceral.

Here are a couple of BioShock 2 marketing images I worked on with the help of our 3D team who modeled, textured, and posed the characters. Composition, background elements, lighting, special effects, and additional painting were my job on these.

Here are a couple of character concepts for a project by Emotiv. Emotiv is researching the power of the mind, allowing you to control. I got to try it - it's pretty cool :)

Here is the box cover art for Cursed Mountain by Deep Silver.

Here are some character illustrations and concepts for Konami and Climax's Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.

Magic: The Gathering art update

Hey everyone,

It's been a while since my last art update, so I guess I should start catching up! I've had a busy 2009 and early 2010 so there's plenty to show. I guess I'll start with some Magic: The Gathering cards!

Kotaku T-Shirt from Meat Bun

Meat Bun, known for their video game inspired T-shirts, has released a new Kotaku T-shirt!

I worked with the guys from Kotaku and Meat Bun last year to hammer out the design of Kotaku-tan, a moe anthropomorphic female embodiment of the Kotaku website. For those of you unfamiliar with Kotaku, it is one of the top video game news sites on the internets. The shirt design is marketed heavily to it's die-hard fan base with inside jokes that will escape those unfamiliar with the site.
