Sometimes I write. Sometimes I draw. Occasionally I do both at the same time. Contact via DM for commission or original art inquiries.

To me there is truth in art. At its core, it is meant to illicit some form of emotional reaction.

I'm loving the licensed sketch card work that I've gotten to do recently, but the  @marvel sketch card projects that @upperdecksports produces continue to be the Moby Dick to my Ahab. #artist #sketchcard #fanart #marvel #audition #submissions #chasingthedream

OK, as the cards are now in stores, I think I can share some of my Star Wars MasterWork cards. This was a completely new concept for me, so I was learning as I went. I'm now on my fourth project for Topps and I continue to grow as an artist. So, while, I may not be completely happy with all of them, this set will always be special to me, because it was my first.

Inktober Day 30. Constantine. This was an early idea that my favorite gigirlFIEND @juggzlette513 and I discussed at the beginning of Inktober. I originally pictured it with the Comic version of the character, but she had the Keanu Reeves film version in mind, which completely changed how I ended up translating the concept. #inktober #constantine #dccomics #fanart #vertigo #vertigocomics #hellblazer #keanureeves #demons #exorcism #blackmagic #comics #halloween ##inktoberchallenge #ink #art #dailyart #sketchcardartist #drawing #movie #horror

Posting tomorrow's Inktober early. Day 28's entry is the same character that I drew for the first time exactly one year ago, Gator Butch. A  comic character created by indy comic making machine Kurt Belcher​​ . Kurt as called Butch his take on a "Hellboy-type" character, so it seemed appropriate that he should be fighting the same pumpkin monster that I drew Hellboy fighting earlier this month. #inktober #hellboy #gatorbutch #kentuckyfried #macabre #supernatural #kentuckyboy #gator #butch #horror #Halloween #pumpkin #hellboy #comics #indycomics #independent #art #dailyart

Inktober Day 27. Billy the Jigsaw puppet from the SAW films. Not exactly the villain of the @lionsgate  films original franchise, but a pretty creepy and memorable part of it to be sure. And it looks like that might continue in the new Jigsaw movie. #inktober  #saw #jigsaw #torture #game #horror #october #dailyart #sketchcard #artist #film #villain #puppet #tobinbell #friday #artofinstagram #red #halloween  #31daysofhalloween #creepy

Inktober Day 25. There's a new name in horror...The Juggernaut. He is the titular Psycho Killer from the film bearing that name Randy R Fabert​​ 's Psycho Killer, which was filmed in #cincinnati The Juggernaut was first created in a different screenplay that  @randyfabert and I wrote titled "Death Twitch," but was brought to life and a given a new menacing moniker in Psycho Killer.  #inktober #indyfilm #horror #psychokiller #movie #juggernaut #killer #psycho #inktoberchallenge #halloween #october #film #screenwriter #art #psychokiller #sketchcard #artist #creatorowned #randyfabert #screenplay #gore #torture #saw

Inktober Day 22. The first of three days dedicated to the classic Universal Monsters. Since his birthday was a couple of days ago, I thought it was appropriate to start with Bela Lugosi as Dracula. #inktober #dracula #universalmonsters #belalugosi #bramstoker #classic #halloween #october #horror #vampire #blackandwhite #filmicon #horroricon #movie #inktoberchallenge #inktober2017 #sketchcards #topps #upperdeck #art #artist #ink #dailyart #sunday #fanart #vanhelsing  #gothic #universalstudios #artofinstagram

Inktober Day 20. A guy so nice you want to say his name thrice. (But do so at your own risk.) Yep, it's ol' Beetlejuice himself.
