Been with my wife for nearly 25 years and married for 20 years. I have two beautiful children. And I feel OLD. LOL.

I have always been a fanboy of comics and movies, TV and of course music.

Been a Horror movie nut for all my life and grew up on the Universal Monster's Lugosi's Dracula, Karloff as Frankenstein's Monster, Chaney's Wolfman etc. Eventually I fell into the Hammer classics such as Peter Cushing as Van Helsing or Victor Frankenstein and Chris Lee as Dracula, etc. So you will see many Homages by me here.

EVERYTHING I DO IS FOR SALE!!!! If you care to inquire about a piece please message me.

I DO REQUESTS AND COMMISSIONS AS WELL ... Please message me about details. I am very easy to deal with.

Sorry I have been really busy lately.  Vacations, Renovations and such.  And I have to sketch up some of the Celebrities coming to Calgary Comic Con.  I will be there for one day only.  Not sure how much time I wish to spend standing in line. Anyone else going to be there? Could be a cool time to meet and say hello:)  After that it will be time to settle in on some Lord of the Rings art!!!!
OK!!!  it has been awhile since I updated this thing!  Sometimes i am lazy but recently my life has been crazy hectic.  That said I do very little here on DA but post stuff. 

What i do do is make time for  daily sketches.  Sometime they are good and sometimes horrendous.  In the end I hope that those of you who take the time to look at them see growth.  Many Watchers of mine most likely lost interest which is fine as I do not post many finished works as I used to. 

I am a artist who really relies heavily on references but lately I have been free to do more accomplished original poses because I sketch daily.

So if you wish to try character challenges have a look at this group :icondailysketchchallenge:  Whether to just get you sketching daily or figure practice or even to copy the references they supply it is a great excercise. The goal is to warm you up for your whatever your art project is.  Just to wake you up and loosen you up.  The timelimit is roughly a half an hour and have fun!
