ah, nah, marley, that is just when I uploaded them...some are from as far back as the early 90's...I do get a lot done, tho! Finishing up some new vampire portraits (color), and will upload those soon.

Those are some sweet comparisons, James! Both of those are incredible artists...I don't know that I followed either (they came along after I had really gotten into painting), but I can see similarities, especially in Muth. High praise, indeed!

Hi, Ken! Comparisons are a bit of a lazy compliment, but I hope you don't mind me saying that your artwork reminds me a little of a cross between J.J.Muth and John Bolton, your use of shade and light is quite extraordinary, using the light on nearly minimal lines to achieve almost photo-realistic figures, marvellous!

Anneth, I hope to go to SD this year (we just moved to DC from there a few months ago)...it is gonna be a lot harder and more expensive tho, so it is slightly up in the air. I have made plans to go, but if finances get too stretched, it might go the way of the dinosaurs. I am always in artist alley when I go, tho, so look for me there. If I go, I plan on trying to do a life size painting of one of the Daredevil movie characters, so watch out!

Dang, I wish I could've seen it. This is a great piece, and I don't know why, but feels very Luis Royo like. Must be the girl's hair. *G* I was at the '01 Con and I remember seeing a bunch of artists being on stage with their "mini" studios *hehe* Will you be going to SDCC again this summer?

Thanks very much, Victoria...I appreciate the feedback very much...another success story about painting in front of people, though I would have never thought if possible (of me)!

Really cool! Nice doggy...::pat pat:: I like your use of lighting. It conveys the moonlight well, through the backlit affect, as well as the front light to give the figures more value. I like the fur on the werewolf too and that crazy, toothy grin!

Art at its best.
