A painting simply for myself. It was inspired by a dying red maple tree in my front yard. One of the roots hollowed out and looked for all the world like a water chute.

This was a very cool project! The paintings are for a museum installation for children at Prittlewell Priory Museum in Southend-On-Sea, England. The final product is a large boardgame table based on maps and wildlife of the grounds. I painted the map, character portraits, and additional challenge images.

I picked up where I stopped 2 years ago with "A Bit of Rock". The book may never see publication, but this piece is good enough to complete I say.

This is based on a silly story my wife and I made each other laugh with. Our cat Akira is an avid "birdwatcher" and we imagined him all decked out for the field.

This was done as a promotional exercise for Empty Room Studios (which is now Fat Goblin Games). For illustration, I've always loved the classic combination of pencil and watercolor. This image was inspired by the animation of the 1970's Rankin-Bass production of "The Hobbit."

"The Wind in the Willows" is a true classic and one of my favorites as a child. So I was really stoked to take my own crack at this classic for Wowio's special online re-release.
