About me

Professional:

I am designer of living things for film,animation and games.. I am a sculptor who draws and a painter who sculpts...In my opinion there is a destinction between a designer and an illustrator. Although to be a designer you have to be able to illustrate but not all illustrators are designers and some Illustrators are far better at illustrating than any designer...Illustrators can fool producers with pretty pictures but not all designers are as fortunate and thus the fighting nature of a true designer. We are not politically correct in our manner or our ideas. But we are constantly searching for innovative ideas. We live in this world and are sometimes blinded and way too far in to be accessible to corporate art houses, Fx houses and studios of all kinds...My goal as a designer/illustrator is to always bring something new to the table and as little of "something that has been done" as possible..I guarantee this effort but not the final product.. that's up to you and how much you listen to me

Personal:

Originally from the East Los Angeles area I now live in Northern Calif. with my wife of 25 years. The open space and cool air suit me well and have subtly influenced my work. I have always gravitated towards the surreal, whether I was old enough to know what that was or not. The need to be original and unique, probably stemming from adolescence, made me seek out the weirdest and wildest things that an innocent minded kid could conjure up.... By high school my tastes were being split in 2 with the pop culture interest I had in film and my interest in fineart through surreal imagery and artwork from the rennaisance. After gratuating from high school I took life drawing classes at the local community colledge in preperation for an extended education at a big university. I remember being asked for a self portrait and I didn't have an interest in simply drawing my face. So I drew the way I felt. My approach to that assignment really landmarked for me a mode in how I would handle future professional projects. Representational art wasn't my goal as an artist. Abstracting with form is how I make choices with my layouts and the designs of the elements that make up the layouts themselves. Inspiration for me is internal. The work on this site is the kind of artwork I make for myself. It comes from inspiration through my faith in Jesus Christ which is internal. My artwork is the external expression of my internal inspiration. I am still evolving with my personal work, thankfully...I see changes occuring with my work which are very interesting to me and hopefully to anyone who is interested. Even though I have a professional career that is almost 30 years old..I don't feel like I've "arrived". On the contrary I feel like a perpetual student... always learning and needing to study..

Working

Hello everyone,

Yes I know it's been a long time. I've been working for my daily bread. I can say it's all good but very involved.

Big projects that are taking up a lot of my time that I'd like to have to work on my book ("Blind Spot")...We shall see how it all plays out for the San Diego comic con.....but there it is. Thank you for all your support and interest in my work.....

Been a while

As a proffesional artist I've been a little bored with the current computer way of having to work these days. Every pulsing beat of the proffesional world is driving art deeper into the digital world with Zbrush, Mudbox Sketchup and of course the standards photoshop and Painter. Clients want every image photo-real.. 

This site is dedicated to my fine-art... BUT.. "Art" is getting lost in the proffesional world... and so trying to keep it alive I've been inspired to experiment and try to bring some "Art" back into what I do. Those of you who are professionals I know understand...anyway here are three images, a small peek...I hope you like them....

This is an image that is probably pre-mature and or late to this time of the year..I had made it for a Halloween art show that was held at Rick Bakers shop..a Year ago? No... 2 years ago....time flies by when you're  busy....anyway...this image will not be in my up-coming book of prints and so I thought I'd post it here....the original was an experiment with pastels(dry media)..which I've never really used for this kind of work. Just recent to the time of doing this piece I had gone out landscape painting with Kim Lordier and her workshop. She's an amazing..really amazing pastelist...so I had to go and see how she worked..this is the first piece I made resulting from that time......

Dry media and digital.....It's called "Jack's Party"...........
