“Serpienta” Process

Drawings with an insane amount of detail like “Serpienta” of course require an insane amount of time (and willpower) to complete. The process of this project took place over a six week period (don’t ask how many hours).  It was not six weeks of solid work, but a result of having to divide my attention […]

“Phoenix Heart”

This commissioned piece was intended to be a sleeve tattoo and include multiple elements that the client liked – including a sacred heart that was out of the ordinary. I decided to go with an anatomical heart (which I always liked because of its complex form), which was all too easy to pair with a […]

“Phoebius” Process

1. Initial pencil sketch. “Phoebius” was a more experimental project for me in both subject matter and visual style. It took a couple sketches to work out the composition and her pose. I also wanted to see how my unique concept of shading and form would work out visually. 2. Completed full size pencil drawing. […]

“Devoted Father, Loving Husband”

I felt like returning to the more graphic style that I used to draw in. Over time I’ve noticed my art is steadily getting more detailed, which isn’t bad […]

“Team Burks”

This was a commission from a good friend of mine, a tribute to her husband’s guitar and other interests of his – surfing, fishing, music, and family. She married a man, in other words. She wanted his first guitar to be the centerpiece of the image. He also appreciates Day of the Dead-styled imagery, so […]

“Cassowary”

It had been a while since I had done a big bird picture, so I decided to finally get around to doing an image of a cassowary, something I had been meaning to do for some time. They’re certainly strikingly exotic creatures, so it was fun to illustrate their various weird attributes. Indigenous to the […]

“SharKKK”

An editorial piece done for a second illustration class in college, I think this stands out as one of my best pieces from a conceptual standpoint, although I have worries that this exact concept has been done sometime by someone else. It’s just too easy! I think the cross is a powerful image and provides […]
