"Zero Hour," by Ray Bradbury

Development for the story, “Zero Hour”, by Ray Bradbury. These are still works in progress, so hopefully I can return to them soon.

City of the Beasts

This is a group project I worked on for the book, City of the Beasts, by Isabel Allende.

Wishing Well

Finally have some time to post work!

 This was a really fun project called the "Wishing Well". We were given a country of origin (I was given the Netherlands) and the basic story of a child who discovers an ancient wishing well, where a creature hides. One of the funnest projects I've ever had, and while it's maybe not my best work, I learned a huge amount, and made a big leap forward.

Some film studies from one of my favorite movies, Drive. I feel like I learn a lot from doing these.

Cafe Milano

 This started as a master study of a painting by one of my favorite contemporary artists, Chris Turnham (, which inspired the plant and the overall lighting. I was having so much fun with it, that I kept adding more, and then I changed it completely. I started referencing this photo I found on Tumblr...
Then it kept growing from there...

Had a lot of fun with this one. The composition isn't the best, but I kind of like this one, if only because I learned so much from it.

Tired of rendering, so I thought I'd play around with some stylized stuff. I started with a sketch of the lady in front, and then it just kept going from there, so it's a little messy...

Planning on starting BFA next semester. I suck at painting. Not a good combo. Soooo, gotta paint a buttload this summer...

Screenshot from one of my favorite films, Kiss Me Deadly (1955)...

Thumbnail from the ending...

An awful speed painting. Maybe I'll try this again at the end of the summer and see if I get awesome.

Some early test renders of a model I've been working on, of Black Adam. Pain in the ass, trying to get renders out of Zbrush.

These are from art51 modeling, I think spring '11. Not a big fan of modeling. 

Winchester. Pew pew!


These are from Art113B, I had with John Clapp. That class completely changed the way I paint. 

For this project we had to chose a story and paint a background for it. I chose Tom Sawyer. Looking back at this, I hate the composition. I wish I could retake this class, knowing what I know now, but I guess you're kind of always going to feel that way about anything, as you get older and learn more, right?

We then had to repaint the same scene in the style of another artist we picked at random. I was given Dr. Seuss...
