Here's the NYC Comic Con jumbotron promo for the Jeebus book I was hired on to illustrate. It just came out this week!

I am not myself religious, but this was a SUPER fun story to work on, and I always savor any chance to take part in illustrating something with so much history and depth of meaning.

My hope and goal was that anybody could enjoy the imagery, regardless of background or beliefs!

Also, the amazon link!

And as always, prints of most art available at…  or upon request.

Your work is such an inspiration!! :) I've been working with gouache for the past few months and have absolutely fallen in love with it. If you don't mind me asking, how do you usually set up your color palette? Do you plan ahead or just go for it?

Every piece I see from you blows me away. Your art is just so wonderful! I think I speak for everyone when I say that I'd love to see a series of process photos or maybe a process video from you one day. Please keep up the fantastic work and never stop painting.

Thanks for looking!  I would do some process stuff.....but I'm rather camera-shy, and can never bring myself to set it up!  Perhaps some day I'll go ahead and do it :)

Your work is amazing!

No, seriously-- I've been staring at it open-mouthed, going through the whole gallery. The gesture! Your choice in color! I'm blown away. I want to fall at your feet and call you sensei and beg you to teach me your strange, arcane lore.

(On a slightly more serious note, I'm saving you as a potential book cover artist. I've got a steampunk novel I'll be shopping soon.)

Haha - Thanks!! Sounds good!  I'm glad you get so much out of it!

Also, I don't suppose you'd be willing to let me do master studies off of your pieces...?

Do know that I constantly creep in your gallery and stay stunned by your traditional expertise in illustration, and always forget to comment!
