Penand Ink Work

These are six Pen and Ink pieces I have done for various things. The top right and left pieces were done for Cassandra Clare and Josh Lewis for their Codex published by Simon and Shuster. The Devil in the top middle was for the Jersey Devil Con T shirt when I was a guest of honor. The bottomleft piece was a business card and the other two were for White Wolf.


I have two tarantulas, a whip scorpion and a zombie crab. I also have four cats and my son has a bearded dragon and an axolotl. We all like animal friend and I have illustrated a number of them for zoos, breeders and pet stores.


Mostly I have done ink work for book interiors but also a fabric pattern once and some tattoo flash work..

Menus and Labels

My wife and I do this New Years Party and every year I do the menu. I've also done restaurant menus, label design for booze. Also for food and hair care products too.

New Years Menus

For the Sci Fi New Years Party I got to sink my teeth into the project. That Menu is all me. For the others I basically used Photoshop to make King Arthur and Storm look like they were drinking.


Most of the art I tortured to make the New Years posters are fromold masters and clip art but the bottom right one is a piece fromone of my favorite artists of all time, Time Bradstreet

and some...


as a kid I read this book and I have been drawing faeries ever since.
In case anyone was wondering, the top two characters are Kay and Roiben from my wife's books.
