"Spite" Sketch

Here is another sketch for my upcoming "Erode" series. I am tentatively calling it "Spite" but "Sabotage" and "Leech" are both possible alternative titles... can't... decide... I'll have to think about which direction I want to take the narrative and how it fits into the series as a whole and title it accordingly.




This new series "Erode" will be darker and more surreal than my previous work; I'm pretty excited to work on it!

"Famished" Sketch

Here's the rough sketch for my piece for the upcoming "Homeroom" show at Subtext Gallery in San Diego. The show opens Nov. 11th, here is a LINK for more info.



The theme of this show is for artists to re-interpret a work from their early childhood... how cool is that? So cool! I'll post the drawing I did in kindergarten that inspired this piece along with teasers of the final image soon.
