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?"
Pen & ink on 9 by 12 inch Bristol board with color added in Affinity Photo.
I've added the fifth issue of Night Craft to the store section of this site. Click here to order!
These are the four main stages of the technique I used to create the style of the latest issue of Night Craft. It's basically just a process of adding digital shading to a traditional graphite drawing.
The next issue of Night Craft is almost complete! I've gone in a different direction with this one: pencilled line art with shading added using Affinity Photo. This story is a bit of an homage to the post-apocalyptic B-movies of the 1980s that have been so influential on me!
The artwork for the cover of the seventh issue of Night Craft is now available as a print, and a few other items, from Redbubble!
I was recently interviewed by Reader's Voice, you can read the interview on their website!

neThis is likely going to be the image used on the cover of the next issue of Night Craft, coming out later this Summer. I ended up basing it on a sketch from December 2016, done before I even had a plot written for the story. The pencils were down on 11 x 17 Bristol board, it was digitally painted in Affinity Photo, with the sky being done in Sketchbook Pro.
This is a recent piece I completed for a cover to a promotional "Night Craft" issue. Pencils on Bristol board, with color added in Affinity Photo.
These are the pencils to a new Night Craft short story. I'll be posting the completed story on this site shortly.
Here's a pencilled page to an upcoming issue of "Night Craft", I'm hoping to have this one out by the Summer!
These are some of the sketches I did at the con last weekend. The first two were done in my sketchbook, mainly to practice using a type of inking pen I'm not too familiar with. The bottom two were two of the many free sketches I did. These never got picked up, so if anyone recognizes them, send me a message and I'll get your sketch in the mail to you!
If you're in the Greenville, SC area, I'll be at the show tomorrow with copies of the latest issue of "Night Craft" at table #226!
