"Star Shower"


Walking Dead Season 5 premiers tonight! 
And to commemorate this momentous occasion, I did this Bethyl piece to give you warm and fuzzy feelings. Yup, you got it, that's Daryl's poncho design on that umbrella. I hope AMC will take the hint and start making merchandise like this. So far I've made a blanket, a sweater and now an umbrella.

The possibilities are endless!

"Not of this earth" show!

I arrived a bit late, but still managed to catch the crowd. The Bear & Bird Gallery was lively last night, with a gathering of alien fanatics!

^__^

Without further ado...











































Of all the pieces in the show, this was my favorite one. Don't know why, but something about it just made me smile.

^_^




This space kitty was also pretty nifty. 








Yay! Here's my piece.




















Of course, I couldn't end this post without a shot of this classic Alien shot. By far, the best alien in the movie industry.

Wip!

A WIP of my character, Anila, and her noble steed, Kapi. I finally settled on suitable travelling clothes for her, equipped with little jaguars ears to complete the ensemble.

Looking forward to painting all the little details on Kapi's riding gear!

"The Nest"

An adventurous Kis-Kis got more than he bargained for when he ventured into the nest of an alien bug queen. But, no sooner than he realized the danger he was in, the queen was no longer asleep and she was looming behind him…

My piece for the "Not of this Earth" show opening Friday, October 3rd.

"My best friend is my cat"

Yup, title pretty much sums that up. 

Here's a pic of Norman Reedus, and his gorgeous cat, Eye in the Dark!

WIP ~ Progress...


A nest full of eggs...











WIP

So, space bunnies vs. cats will be placed on the back-burner for another day. 

This idea popped into my head and I couldn't resist sketching it out and see where it would take me. It features a giant alien insect queen, and a poor little Kis-Kis who stumbled into her nest during an adventure.

Sketchbook Corner #26


WIP sketches of an October show called "Not of this World."  It will feature the galactic battle-- space bunnies VS. space cats-- over planet Nesagi.













Yes, that's a space gun in the shape of a carrot.

And here's something totally different.


A quick sketch of Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead, with his little furball, Eye in the Dark. I'll be painting a final version of this piece real soon!
