MTG Grand Prix: Sacramento

Hey Magic fans!  I will be doing a signing and selling merch along side my friend Wes Burt at the Grand Prix in Sacramento, California January 18-19.  I don't do these often, so if you're in the area come on down!

Note: I'm not listed on the page as an attending artist at the time of this post because I was a last minute addition.

MB Workshop in LA! Dec 5-8 2013

It's workshop time again!  This time, Massive Black will be partnering with Riot Games to bring the workshop down to the LA area.  I'm personally very excited to meet a lot of the scheduled artists coming to this event!  It's a very impressive list this year with top professionals from North America, Europe, and Asia who work in the film, video game, animation, illustration, and fine art industries.

I will be doing some talks, demos, and portfolio reviews at the event.  Anyone in the area or around California interested in the arts industry should consider checking it out!  Space is limited!

Imagine FX #100

Congratulations to Imagine FX magazine on their 100th issue!  I remember doing some of my earliest published work for Imagine FX years back.  It's good to see that the magazine is still going strong!  Also, thank you to everyone who voted me into the IFX Top 100!  I'm very surprised/honored :)

Workshop SF 2012

It's time for the next Massive Black Workshop in San Francisco!  Massive Black, The Safehouse Atelier, Steambot Studios, SixMoreVodka, and a number of other notable Entertainment Art Industry professionals will be instructing at the workshop in San Francisco August 9th through August 12th.  This event is sponsored by my alma mater, The Academy of Art University, and will be taking place downtown at the AAU Powell Street building, the same building I spent my years studying illustration.  I highly recommend these types of workshops to anyone serious about working as an artist in the entertainment industry.  Not only will you get a chance to listen to talks and watch demos by a large number of industry professionals, but the attendees are often working professionals and art directors as well.  As an added plus, there is always the one on one portfolio reviews at the end of the event.  This is more than just a great networking opportunity - you will be surrounded by people with similar mindsets and passions, a situation that is very rare and very inspiring.

If you act fast, there is an Early Bird Special running on the tickets, but it ends June 30th!

Hope to see some of you there!

Zombie Playground on Kickstarter!

Zombie Playground has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project. The campaign will run from May 22nd until June 26th, 6:00pm EDT. This funding campaign will ultimately determine the fate of Zombie Playground, so we humbly ask for your support.

For those of you not familiar with Kickstarter, it is a crowd funding website designed to give consumers the opportunity to fund projects that they want, instead of waiting and hoping that large companies do the same.  So many great ideas are squashed because financial investers don’t believe that they will sell to the masses, so Kickstarter gives up and coming groups the chance to prove them wrong. Funding for large projects requires large sums of money. Large sums of money usually comes with a lot of strings attached, which makes it difficult for small teams to stay true to their initial ideas. However, if we are able to fund Zombie Playground from contributions from fans, we won’t have the normal strings attached that usually comes from working with big name publishers. For more info on Kickstarter and the Zombie Playground Kickstarter campaign, head here:

Zombie Playground Prints

Don't forget, prints of Zombie Playground are available. You can order them from inPRNT.

Thanks for your support!
