New Robert Fawcett Book

Sorry that I have been absent from the blog for a bit (and it will probably be a bit longer) very busy with freelance right now. I should have lots of new stuff when I am back to posting regularly.

In the meantime here is a new book Auad is publishing on Robert Fawcett. He is yet another artist that my young mind was unknowingly influenced by. You see I was a huge Sherlock Holmes fan growing up, I was often let down by many illustrations of Holmes until I saw Fawcett's. The subtly of character and mood bubble over in what I feel are his greatest works.

You can purchase now from Auad Publishing
Or pre-order from Amazon

Master's of the American West 2011

Hey all,
Just a quick notice and reminder, The Masters of the American West exhibit is coming next month to The Autry Museum in Burbank, CA. Also, they recently posted much of the artwork on the official site. Even if you have little interest in "cowboy art" I cannot recommend this show enough, many of the best contemporary realist artists can be seen in this show.

Jeffrey Catherine Jones Documentary...

...needs your help

I was introduced to Maria Cabardo by Jeremy Cranford at a group dinner during San Diego Comic-Con last year. I had heard about the docu being done on Jeffrey Catherine Jones (an artist I respect immensely). Hearing about the passion she, as the driving force behind it, has put into the project it made me even more anxious to see the end product. Well apparently the project needs a little help in funding the post-production. You can help out with a donation over at You can give as little as a dollar, but with a $50 donation you are essentially pre-ordering the dvd and movie poster.

Wizard World Anaheim and other appearances

Those of you who pay attention to such things may have noticed I list my convention appearances in a widget to the right. If so, you may also have noticed a recent change there. I was invited to attend Wizard World Anaheim this year, and due to time constraints I had to drop out of Horror Hound Weekend Indy. While I am sad to miss out on Horror Hound I am looking forward to Wizard World.

Just prior to Wizard World I will be appearing at Monsterpalooza in Burbank, and I am happy to announce I will be once again exhibiting at IlluXCon in Altoona, PA in November. If you have the time and inclination, it would be great to meet some of you at any or all of these great gatherings.
