MonstersGo! Dragon Kitty

A couple of weeks ago, while waiting for a response from a client on a project, I created this MonstersGo piece. It was based on a child’s drawing by a kid named Violet. Then, when I was almost finished, I got my client response and had to get back to real work. I popped it up on Instagram real quick, I but didn’t bother with my other social media at the time. Well, now that project’s finished, so I can get back to sharing this little dragon kitty all the places I normally share stuff. Here you go!



3 Voodoo Dolls

Here’s a commission I finished this week. It was drawn for Isaiah Vest with the group Stileto. It’s a cover for a song titled Coffee and Drugs. The album will drop on April 22nd.

Because of the song title, the image contains drug themes. Nothing egregious, just some pills spilled on a table. But since I’m primarily a children’s illustrator, I’ll hide it behind a link. Click here to view final image.

Here’s a safe version:

Character: Gwinnura Throthgunahr

An illustration of a dwarf fighter for a Dungeons & Dragons game.  Gwin is a middle-aged dwarf with greying hair in a braid coiled around her head.  She is carrying a substantial pack that includes a hand axe, rope, a bedroll and a shield.  She also has a war axe and pouch on her belt.  She stands in a cave tunnel.

This is the character I’ve been playing in a Dungeons & Dragons campaign. Gwinnura (Gwin to her friends, Mistress Throthgunahr to others) is a dwarf woman who has taken the opportunity of her recent widowhood to do a bit of adventuring as she travels away from her late husband’s home and towards the distant dwarven settlement where her daughters now live. She was a member of the town guard before she married and afterward continued helping the village by training the young ones in the dwarven martial arts. Now she’s dusting off her fighting skills to earn a bit of coin on her way across the land, taking in the sights and finding new companions along the way.

A Basketball Story – Interior 9

Oh, I’m sorry. I got a bit distracted over Thanksgiving and didn’t get around to posting the rest of this series. Here’s the 9th interior.

From A Basketball Story, a picture book I illustrated for Entrepreneur Media Inc.

The Sea Turtles have heard that the Jackrabbits get a trip to FUNZone if they win all their regular season games. They’re determined to stop that. I intentionally chose to depict the two huddles, essentially the same pose but with different characters, from two different views.

A three panel comic strip illustration.  The first panel shows 5 members of the Sea Turtles team huddled together with a speech bubble saying, "NO FUNZone FOR THEM!"  The second shows a view from inside the jackrabbit's huddle, looking up.  Five members of that team are saying, "FUNZone!"  The last panel shows after the game with the Jackrabbits victorious and the Sea Turtles defeated.  The Jackrabbits are mostly all standing with fists raised in triumph, but with one hugging another player and another actually leaping in the air.  One of the Sea Turtles has their head in their hands, crying.  One comforts another teammate.  And another walks away.
