A while back Leo and I were playing in his room in a small tent which was serving both as a castle AND as a spaceship. I kept asking why it was a spaceship AND a castle. Without missing a step Leo said, "Because the king is in space Daddy..." Too right. The king IS in space. Never underestimate the imagination of a three-and-a-half year old!

Here is another piece for my "Alien Orchestra" series. I love creating characters more than anything. I always have. I just pulled these guys out of the sketchbook and painted them up in Corel Painter.

These are part of a larger portfolio of wok I am hoping to show to children's book publishers. Creating the work is easy... Self promotion. That's the hard part. Stay tuned.

Well, the drum is hollow right? This is a taste of a larger portfolio I am working on. Getting ready to make a big push to get my portfolio/website/marketing materials together. I hope to have everything up off the ground by September-ish (my birthday). Anyway, I will post more updates on this effort soon...

This particular piece is part a series I'm calling, "Alien Steam Punk Orchestra" along with a few other alien, steam punk-inspired pieces. These are fun to draw and paint and I can do them all day long (who wants to stop when you're having fun, right?). He started as a pencil sketch which was then imported into Corel Painter where he was finally rendered. I'm going to post more of these lovelies as I get them done. Thanks for looking!
