Bad Monster

This is a digital ink on paper drawing of a little girl scolding a monster for breaking her doll. At the moment it is only a line drawing but will probably also become a digital painting at some point. It was drawn in MyPaint with a Wacom Intuos 5; signed and branded in Photoshop.

World of Art

This was originally just an illustrative piece done for myself. It somewhat translates my feelings at the time, which were of peace, tranquility, and most of all creativity. It was voted image of the week for Photoshop Creative magazine and the cover image for ArtFlow magazine.

I had first approached this piece as a pencil sketch and thought to create a base scene in 3D for shadow and reflection references that I just wouldn't have otherwise. During the 3D construction I decided to just create the whole scene in 3D, however, towards the end I realized everything was too stiff and I wanted a more relaxed cartoony style and so I started over using my 3D render as a reference as I had intended to do from the beginning. You can view the sketch and 3D render, along with some other details, on my site at


This was created for a digital art contest which was themed “Human Nature”. It should depict mainly judgment but of course, as with most things, it also displays other human behaviorisms.
This image shows four judges sitting up high on donkeys, or asses, and their individual approaches to someone that has bared himself to them. One is scornful, another arrogant, a third ridiculing, and the last is apathetic.
This painting is not so much about judges as it is about people's natural behavior to judge others based upon their own limited viewpoints as a result of their own limited experiences. The judges themselves merely represent the most common reactions towards those they have judged. And the judged shows a common reaction of those that have been judged.

Caricature Videos

Here’s a couple time lapsed videos of the creation process of two of my caricatures. The software being used is MyPaint in connection with a Wacom Bamboo drawing tablet.

The first is my self-caricature...

... and the second is of Gilbert Daroy.

... that's all folks!

Themed Caricatures

A few themed or cartoon caricatures in which the subject is placed in some situation in relation to their favorite movie, music, story or book etc. All digitally created in MyPaint, GIMP, Photoshop with a Wacom graphic tablet.

Cartoon Doodles

These are a few doodles created by me when activating my graphic tablet’s pressure sensitivity. It doesn’t automatically activate when drawing or painting in MyPaint so I open a blank canvas in Photoshop and scribble a line. Sometimes the line looks like something and I doodle out what I imagined.

Little Red Riding Hood Illustration

An illustration of the classic fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood” in three styles. All digitally created and edited in MyPaint, GIMP, and/or Photoshop using a Wacom graphic tablet.
