DUKE NUKEM FOR WIRED

July 5, 2011

Title pretty much sums it up. I got a really fun call a few months back asking if I could illustrate Duke Nukem. I am not a video game player what so ever, but, like most other adolescent boys, I did dable in the first person shooter worlds back when things like Doom and Duke Nukem first came out for those old  PCs in the 90’s.  It wasn’t a big part of my daily life by any means, but Duke does bring back a few memories of childhood in Myrtle Beach, SC.  It made illustrating this picture all the more enjoyable.

HEADING EAST

June 7, 2011

Hey everyone I’m going to China! I will be visiting my parents, who live in Shanghai, for the next two weeks. This does not mean I will disappear! I will be blog posting and (maybe) tweeting while gone. Also, for all you professionals, I still plan to accept work as much as I can. Thanks!

QUOTE OF THE DAY

February 1, 2011

“As an exercise, if I ask students to explain how to improve acomposition as a group. Invariably they talk about adding something to make an image more complex. Clutter; visual, metaphorical, or literal rarely gives one a sense of comfort. Simplify- try taking something away. When finally couched with the simple terminology of activating or deactivating space, students often come to a consensus on how to proceed in the improvement of the work.”

AFTER THE FACT

December 20, 2010

Recently, while browsing the Library Of Congress Image Archive, I was stopped in my tracks by an old photograph of a curious looking crewman. The boater in the picture has an incredible resemblance to a character I illustrated some time during 2009; similar not only in genre, but clothing, muscle build, mustache, and even gesture.  I couldn’t resist the urge to do a side by side comparison.

weird, eh?
