Spooky: Spiders and Armor Gloves Working Together?

Now these spooky spiders got in their had to start making chainmail armor with the ghost… who knows what they are up to.


I got to pick up where I had left off some time back the Ghost and Spiders are still in development and more elements are coming together, things are expanding.  The best part though is that I got to do some drawing.

Contributing To Wallpaper For Refugees

My contributions to Wallpaper for Refugees.

Back in December of last year I was asked, along with a whole bunch of other illustrators, to collaborate on a refugee project.  Each illustrator got a word to illustrate, mine was Schnizel, and here it is in black on pink. The project was really well received and is now on the second production run how cool is that!  

My compliment to the Leichtfried Marlene and her team to make this happen!

The posters will be on exhibition through October 10 at

AZR-0 Robots Prints from Curio & Co. at SDCC2016

Continuing the AZR-0: Robots in the Wild journey… I did a series of layouts form the robots I designed and added annotations to create little moments of reflective observation by robologist Verdie Z Goodsey our intrepid heroine who goes studying the AZR-0 robots on planet AZR. The prints are designed to work as if they were scans from one of her journal pages.


We'll have a series of these mini prints, 5x7in, available at SDCC, Curio & Co. small press O-2.
