Irregardless, Part 2

Well, I finished the cover yesterday. Woohoo! I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Most importantly, my buddy Brian is happy with it. Without any further ado, here it is...

What's coming next, you ask? I'm doing a sculpture of Brock Samson from The Venture Brothers animated series. It's coming along nicely. I'm taking in-progress shots, so I can let you in on the fun. Yay! I'll try and post some stuff tomorrow or Tuesday.


Manly Art Site Update...

Hey Folks,

Sorry I've been MIA for a while. I've been busy trying to finish up that book cover and I've finally made some necessary updates to my website. Check it out! Manly Art


Irregardless, Part 1

So, I'm doing a book cover for my friend Brian's first novel. It's call Irregardless. It's really a great book. It's getting published this fall. I'll try and get a little synopsis from him to post. I doubt I could give you the low-down on the book as well as he could.

Anyway... I thought I'd share my process with you. I'm doing it a little differently than I normally would. It's a group shot... (here are the comp sketches the publisher approved)

I'm doing the main characters as separate sketches and will composite all the elements in photoshop to get the final tight drawing. I'll start posting the character sketches later today.


It is done...

Well, the opening went well last night. Thanks to everyone that made it out! I really had a blast visiting with everyone. I'm also happy to say that I sold Dogfight, Part 1. Many thanks to the Bowdens. You guys rock!


Opening Tonight!

My show opens this evening at Amy's Ice Cream at 6th & Lamar. I'll be there from 8 'till probably Midnight, when they close. If you're in Austin, I hope to see you there!
