This is the artwork for my exclusive print for Phoenix Comicon 2016. We’ve had a brand new, exclusive piece of artwork available for this show each year since we first vended there in 2011.

PHXCC 2015 Exclusive - Light and Dark

We’ve been vending at Phoenix Comicon every year since 2011, and each year, we bring a new, exclusive piece of artwork to the show. The first piece I did featured a phoenix and a dragon, and I decided to revisit the idea with my piece for PHXCC 2015.

Emerald Morning

This digital painting was done for a friend. At first glance, you may notice the serene blue ocean waves, the faint morning mist and lush greenery covering the shoreside cliffs, the soft pastel clouds, with those at higher altitudes shining with daybreak’s first light, or the birds gently coasting on the breeze.

Hidden amongst the obvious are a few little secrets, creatures and spirits from Irish mythology. If you look closely, you may spot a pooka, a faery ring, a woodland spirit, the children of Lir, a selkie, and a creature whose cry is thought to have sparked some stories of the banshee.

Mythology is fascinating, and it’s especially fun to look beyond the more commonly known Greek stories. There are thousands of fascinating legends from cultures the world over, and discovering them is half the fun!

Orange Blossom Drakeling

Orange Blossom Drakeling

This tiny green drakeling is wonderfully camouflaged for skittering among the branches of orange trees and sipping on the sweet juice of the fruits.

This image was done as our exclusive for WonderCon 2012, in a series that included 50 signed and hand-numbered 11″ x 17″ prints. The idea was to feature in each exclusive a dragon indiginous to the area where the convention was being held. In this case, WonderCon took place in Anaheim, CA – currently home to a rather famous theme park. As you may or may not know, the whole area used to be covered in orange orchards – thus this little drakeling’s home. Not to worry, though… as the orange groves were cleared out, most of them moved on – but I hear a few of them still hang around to help clean up after tourists.

Forest Child

Forest Child

There are few places safer for a unicorn foal than a small, sheltered clearing in the forest home of his brethren. Settled in the soft grass, this young creature will one day grow into a proud adult unicorn, a graceful and elusive protector of the wilds.

The original painting is sold, but I do have prints available!

Grecian Sphinx Costume

Grecian Sphinx Costume

For this Halloween, I had a bit of a challenge to come up with a costume that was fairly elaborate, but still comfortable enough to wear all day long at work. I had to be able to drive in it, to sit in a chair, and to free my hands to be able to type. This was what I came up with. (Mind, I couldn’t wear the wings while driving, and had to don them once I got there!)
