Th0mas - 14" x 12" - $30 SOLD!(click image to enlarge)

I can't really figure out why Th0mas is so distraught. Did he let go of his balloon accidentally? One of the technicians should have tied it to one of his arms to keep if from flying away if that's the case. Is the balloon following him home from the circus? Does Th0mas suffer from globophobia?? That could be a programming issue. Whatever the case, Th0mas does seem a little distracted from his goal of enslaving all humans!
This was the first of these paintings, and I did it straight out of my head without a sketch.
More to come! Thanks for stopping by, spread the word!



SP3NS3R - 12" x 9" - SOLD! (click image to enlarge)

Will you be ready when the robots come for you? Sure, you think you're in control now, but how will you feel when they grab you with those strong robo-clampy hands? This little droid was practicing for the mechanical armeggedon, and his arm had a drastic malfunction. Let's hope the technicians take pity on him before they realize his only goal is to enslave them.

Now, a special message to the robots:


More dinosaurs and robots on the way, come back soon! Thanks



Sketchbook #1

(Click the image above to enlarge)

You might be asking yourself: Why is this giant dude with tattoos painting cute little dinosaurs and robots? Due to being distracted from art by loud punk rock music in my early 20's my artistic development became somewhat stunted. Anytime I pick up a pen/pencil/marker/brush and put it to paper/post-it note/backstage wall/canvas, one of four things will most likely come out:
  • Dinosaur
  • Robot
  • Skull
  • Zombie
I'm trying to be better about this. Carrying a moleskine and drawing things from the world around me seems to be helping, but for the time being, dinosaurs and robots are what I feel compelled to paint. Usually while sitting at my boring job I'll doodle on post-it notes, and a more recent occurrence is that I've stopped throwing them in the trash. I take them home in the back pocket of my moleskine and paste them into my sketchbook. When it comes time to paint something, I have a catalog of ideas to pull from. As you can see from the page above, Stanley & Franklin were both originally post-it doodles.
Here's a closer look:

Stanley is a little more squished down here, but he's still waiting for the bathroom apprehensively. Now here's Franklin, looking a lot sadder in this sketch (at least in my opinion) than in the painting:

I'll be posting up more paintings in the following weeks, along with sketches the paintings are based on. If you enjoy checking these out, please spread the word.




Franklin, 9.75" x 8" -  SOLD
You don't usually see a triceratops cry. They have to keep their guard up.

Even the mighty tyrannosaurus rex has that moment of awkwardness, being away from home for the first time.
