Billy Idol

Whew! My how time flies! It has been a Looong time since I posted anything here!! Yeah, well, when life pushes you around a bit it can take a while to find you way back to the path you wanted to be on... I'm not sure I am quite there yet, but I was able to push out this caricature of Billy Idol!

I will be submitting this for a contest in a facebook caricature group, but I mainly did it to be part of my "Monsters of Rock" series, and also because I like Billy Idol!

It was created in MyPaint using a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet and signed and branded in Photoshop.

Happy Halloween!

Well, this is my Happy Halloween painting... a day late!

Inspired by Disney's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Halloween special. When I was a kid I looked forward to watching that cartoon every year. It was one of my favorites!

Anyway, I
wanted to record the painting process but I had some problems during the process and didn't feel like starting over. I did manage to record the sketch. It is on YouTube ( ). The sketch and painting were done in MyPaint using a Wacom Intuos 5.

1979 Toyota Hi(gh)Lux 4X4

This is a CARtoon of a 1979 Toyota HiLux 4X4 pickup. I used to do CARtoons a lot when I was younger and think I`ll do more in the future. I rather enjoy doing them a lot.

I used to own a 1979 Toyota, originally almost the same color, except it wasn`t four wheel drive.

Bad to the Bone

Here’s my latest “Bad” illustration! This is “Bad to the Bone” another addition to my “Bad” series of children (so far just girls) in cooperation with a monster like being. My working title, all of about 1 hour, was “Just Bad”. Well, obviously that didn’t stick. It was only my working title until I figured out what monster would be behind the little girl. This was drawn and painted in MyPaint and Photoshop using a Wacom Intuos 5 graphic tablet.

LOST Supper

This is my rendition of the LOST Supper. I had the idea to do such a painting after having finished watching the series again and during my researching and collecting references I discovered ABC Studios had photographed their version of the LOST Supper. So, I wasn't sure about actually doing it since it had kind of already been done. However, a few friends helped convince me otherwise. I think the chosen characters and their placement makes sense and works well. I tried to keep a lot of the poses the same, or near the same, as in da Vinci's Last Supper. Since da Vinci's is in rather bad shape I also referred to Giovanni Rizzoli's copy of Leonardo's painting.

Bad Monster - Photoshop Creative magazine

Photoshop Creative magazine, issue 92, was published this month featuring my “Bad Monster” illustration in the Reader’s Gallery on page 8.

They contacted me on August 13th and asked if I would mind them publishing the “Bad Monster” painting. And of course I was like, “How much is it worth to you?”… and they didn’t reply any more…

=0P (just kidding)

No, seriously, I was excited! I prepared all the files, sent the copy release, and asked when it would be published and where I could purchase additional copies… and nothing. No Joke. I checked issue 90, waited for issue 91, and then I wrote… they replied and said it would be in the next month’s issue… and there it was. It was difficult to not share the news when I heard and actually wait for the magazine to come out… but I did it! Anyway, it’s cool!
