Bic Ballpoint Pen Sketches Pt. VII

To my surprise, I could have never anticipated such an overwhelmingly positive welcome from the crowd I once migrated amongst between the aisles. People began inquiring about the work, its process, its meaning. How long does it take you to finish a piece? (A fair amount of time.) Why are you using only a ballpoint […]


Bic Ballpoint Pen Sketches Pt. VI

My first Comic Con experience as an exhibitor was packed with many mixed emotions, ranging from lightheaded giddiness to crippling anxiety. I was so afraid that my work wasn’t good enough to show at such a prestigious, world recognized event- but if the artwork had taught me anything, it was that “there is no such […]


Wondercon 2012 : Aritst’s Alley Booth # 213 : Sneak Peek

Wondercon, March 16th-18th, is fast approaching and the past few days have been a bit of a hurricane as I frantically attempt to prepare everything for this weekend’s event at the Anaheim Convention Center. This will be my first solo convention and I’m a little nervous, but the excitement definitely outweighs the anxiety at the […]


Sketches II

I started this drawing about a year ago while I had my art studio on Ray Street. There was an open wall space in the parking lot adjacent to the San Diego Art Department and I had the chance to paint it with one of my illustrations. The illustration depicted today was the first mock […]


Tim Shelton : Everything Went Black : Work in Progress II

I don’t think the development of this piece could have been any more ironic. Turns out I didn’t budget enough time to finish the original drawing for Tim Shelton’s “Everything Went Black” show. So at the last minute I decided to draw something up on the fly– 200 dollars later, we have an overnight delivery […]


Tim Shelton : Everything Went Black : Work in Progress I

Back in early January I was approached by Tim Shelton to produce a piece for his “Everything Went Black” show- a visual tribute to the band, Black Flag. I was pretty honored considering the list of artists that were already signed up to appear, but I was a little confused as to how Tim found […]


Bic Ballpoint Pen Sketches Pt. V

A few months after my show at the Tin Can Alehouse, I was invited by Randall Christopher to share a table at San Diego’s Comic Convention International. Since the age of ten I had religiously attended the Comic Con as a spectator with my father, and now I was given the chance to finally play […]


Thinkspace : Picks of the Harvest : Work in Progress III

Finally finished with my piece for Thinkspace Gallery’s “Picks of the Harvest” show, opening this Saturday, March 3rd from 5PM to 8PM. The artwork took a little longer than I had originally anticipated, but it was well worth the effort in the end. I will continue to explore colored pencil in conjunction with the ballpoint […]


Bic Ballpoint Pen Sketches Pt. IV

In 2010 I was introduced to Kelsey, manager of the Tin Can Ale House, who offered me the opportunity to show in the bar Valentine’s Day weekend. This turned out to be the debut show for the illustrations featured in my first play, SKETCH. It turned out to be an incredible evening with amazing bands […]


Thinkspace : Picks of the Harvest : Work in Progress II

I’m still in the process of finishing my new piece for Thinkspace Gallery’s “Picks of the Harvest” show scheduled to open March 3rd, 2012. So far, I’ve been pretty astonished by the development of this image- a part of me still has no idea how it’s going to all come together in the end, and […]
