A couple of pages I recently finished inking for Hellbound Media's "Dawn After Dark" three-part story...
I'm working on putting together the from and back covers for the seventh issue of Night Craft. It's not done yet, but should be finished soon!
This is a new illustration I just completed. It was drawn in pen & ink on a 9 by 12 piece of Bristol board. It was colored in Affinity Photo, primarily using watercolor brushes.
This is basically another take on a character, Dirk Evigan. One day, he will get a comic book, but for now he continues to pop up in the occasional illustration.
The library continues to grow! "You Can't Go Home" is a self-contained science fiction story I drew back in 2000. It's been pretty much unseen since then, and only published in a slightly altered form, in a very low print run. I drew this right before I went to art school, so it kind of got lost in everything that was going on at the time. It's far from great, but I've kind of grown to like it, over the years. Hope you guys enjoy it to!
You can view it as a gallery of images, or as a PDF. The PDF is large, but a looks better.

I've finally gotten the second installment of Ancient Comics With New Covers (almost) ready to go. I've renamed the series as Night Craft Retro as these stories are my early writings that would evolve into Night Craft. I should have this one up in the next few days!
A recently pencilled page to the Dawn After Dark miniseries "The Dogfather". To be published by Hellbound Media.
A couple of current projects: A horror-themed digital painting and a sketch that may turn into a finished drawing. I've still got a ways to go on the paining, it's about a third of the way complete. The sketch book page is also part of some brainstorming for a future sci-fi themed issue of Night Craft. If that ends up going somewhere, I'll do a post and tell a little story about it...
I don't play video games that often, but when I do, it is most likely on a retro console, and most often a Turbografx or PC Engine. And that love affair started in 1990 when I got a Turbografx for Christmas.
I recently dug up this "treasure" I drew back in 1991. It's the start of a comic book sequel to a game called Veigues Tactical Gladiator. There were some cut scenes towards the end of the game that really fleshed out the story, and I kind of wanted to keep that story going. I believe I only got three pages in and did a mostly unfinished cover. I think I also started a fan comic for Bonk's Adventure around the same time, but I don't recall how far I got with that one either.
Hope you guys enjoy this look back at some very early comic book pages. I promise new art for the next post!
Here's a project that may see the light of day in the far future, (I'm currently committed to finishing the "Dawn After Dark" miniseries as well as diving into the pile of stories I have for upcoming "Night Craft" issues). These are some sketches inspired by a comic I drew back in high school. For years I've wanted to completely remake it, and I may be getting closer to actually seeing a new version of it.
Not the most interesting post, but it may tease a little of what's to come with the new "Dawn After Dark" miniseries. The first of three issues is drawn and is being colored, so we may be seeing that in print sooner than later!
Pencils for a page I recently did for Hellhound Media's "Dawn After Dark" series. Written by Matt Warner.
The collected edition of the classic small-press series I wrote and drew before Night Craft is now available in the store section of this site. It's pretty similar to Night Craft, just a bit more R-rated and the artwork isn't as good. Also, it's hand-lettered. Click here to see the ordering page!
Some recent pencil art for Hellhound Media's "Dawn After Dark". This is for a three-issue miniseries you should be seeing sometime in the near-isn future.
So this is one of those pieces where I just kind of let things happen. There wasn't a whole lot of thought put into it, I just let the pieces fall in a manner that suggests there may be a story to all of this. Now I'm tempted to try and write a story to go with it!
I think it's kind of a subtle reference to a favorite childhood novel, The Fallen Spaceman by Lee Harding. This is different from the novel, but to me shares that common element of "why would you find a giant robot lying on the ground?"
