Rex 'n Stuff

Here's a pinup that is going to be in the next Rex Libris trade. It's scheduled to be out soon. I really had fun drawing the nazi zombies!

Hot Dog Carts & Huggin'

I've been busy working on a children educational book, so I haven't had a chance to post anything. But now that I'm finished I have the free time. So check out these illos I've done for The Canadian Sportsman. The first one is an article about this guy who hires this crazy woman and she gets her husband to intimidate him because he's late on giving her paycheck.
This one is about this guy who meets up with an old buddy every year at this horse racing event.

I'm Rich!

My latest illustration for The Canadian Sportsman. The article was weird and difficult to read because it was written in the style of the 1920's. But the gist of it was about a guy who was lucky and kept winning.

For the sketches they wanted the main guy in the middle of a crowd of sad people with no money. So I came up with these sketches.

Nice Trip!

Check out this piece I did for the Canadian Sportsman. I finished this one a while back, it's just been difficult to find the time to post it. The article was about this horse trainer who had many quirks. One of the quirks was how he would train the horses to get into the stables by pretending to trip over his laces. I know, weird.

In this sketch I wanted to show a standard portrait of all the horses he trained.In this one, I showed the part in the article when he would do the "trip over his laces" trick. I was going to just send these two sketches...
... but I decided to do one more and i came up with this one. As you can see the editor really liked this one.

In the sketch there was a border, I decided to take it out. Looks way better without it.

Parachute Party

Check it out, this is the latest illo I did for The Canadian Sportsman. I really like how this one turned out.

In the first sketch, the article wasn't too clear that it was harness racing (plus it was dated back in the 1970's) so I just assumed that the rider was riding horseback. But I was wrong.

So I fixed it up. The editor wanted to show the part in the article where the trainers come in and slowed the horse down with a parachute. This sketch is pretty much what the final illo looks like. The editor dug this image.


There you have it. Enjoy!

First Post: On A Plane!

Hey there, welcome to my blog. I finally decided to get my own. My first post is one that I recently put up on the SketchKrieg! blog (I know shame, shame). But I'll be posting some new stuff soon, for now enjoy!

Here's an illo that happens on a plane. The article is about how the writer dislikes making small talk with people on planes. So she decides to tell lies. It's pretty funny.

In the article it mentions that the writer gets air sickness and the passenger beside her just keeps on yapping. The image of her looking ill didn't go over well with editor. They wanted me to concentrate more on the lying aspect.

So there ya go! I made it looks like she was bragging about herself, in a sense she is. In a lying sort of way.
