Happy Holidays!

I’m late sharing this here but here is my “Christmas Card” for 2018, continuing my Art Deco Christmas flora fashion illustrations – now with puns! 🌲The end of this year has be busy, hard and brought a lot of changes. It was nice to take a few hours on Christmas Eve to draw this. Wishing you all a very happy festive season 🌟


Protection Spell

I’ve been working on this personal piece for a few months now in the few spare hours I could find.

“I am Fire,

I am comfort and destruction,

I burn in the darkness,

I am protected.

PROTECTION SPELL”

Zatanna Commission

A commission from several months ago for a local collector who now has 2 of my favourite drawings.  The Art Nouveau Death and now this Zatanna are his. I love being asked to interpret these characters and really design the whole page.

The original pieces are drawn directly into his designated character commission sketchbooks. These books are fill with great sketches from artist from around the world. Truly a treasure.

D&D Group Character Portrait Commission

I was recently commissioned to illustrate a D&D group as a gift for their DM. They are playing in a Japanese and Chinese inspired fantasy setting which made designing their costumes and armour so much fun. I loved capturing the details and personalities of each of the players’ characters.

From left to right: Shaylynn Galascient a Sunrise High Elf Eldritch Knight armed with her magical flaming long sword, Sora Loarn a human monk martial artist and archer, General Vandrar Bloodtørst a Hill Dwarf Paladin heavily armed with ranseur, warhammer and short javelins and holding his sacred Forever Stone, Maki is a perky human Warlock equipped with her Robe of Useful Things and her treasured Book of Shadows, Thrym is a Therian Rogue a charming thief with trusty Rope of Climbing, daggers, goblin bow and cleaver.

“Naiad” Illustration

Inspired by the often tragic myths and fairy tales of a mortal’s love for a water nymph. Digital Painting.

“He would take her for his bride,

Beautiful like the mist and sparkling water,

But he could not take the river in his arms.

Naiad”


“Naiad” Finished Line Work

The final line work for my latest fairytale inspired piece “Naiad”. I have a few more like this I am very excited to do! 


#mermay Mermaid Drawings

I’ve had some health problems lately and I decided to draw mermaids to cheer myself up #mermay
I wanted to create some decorative ornament like designs.

Fairlady 300ZX “Woodblock” Painting

Something a bit different – Japanese woodblock print style 300ZX Fairlady I painted as a birthday present for a friend based on his own beautifully restored and lovingly converted street/racer Nissan.
The scene is on “Benkei Bridge” looking towards a modern Tokyo.
