It all started with monkeys...

Ever since I was little I loved playing video games. Started with the Vic20, then atari, and then nintendo, and then Sierra's kings quest series on our home computer. But it wasn't until Monkey Island came out in 1990 that I realized that games can have a solid story and truly be a valid art form. I remember playing for hours with my father who isn't a gamer but immediately loved this game also. As soon as the sequels came out, I was playing them which finally led me to getting in touch with Bill Tiller when rumblings of A Vampyre Story had begun. Lucky for me, he liked some of my characters and brought me on board. Here's a little sketch of what my own Guybrush Threepwood might look like as well as a couple other fav characters from the best game series ever!

As Kids See it

We’ve all seen children’s creativity through their drawings that we proudly put on the fridge. But have you ever wondered what it would look like in color and rendered as if their little imaginations opened up setting their creations free.Here's a couple kids art commisions I just wrapped up. I love doing these. Such a fun challenge to bring these great creations to life! :)

MONA V.1.0

Well the bad news is, I won't be posting any AVS sketches for a bit. The good news is the reason I cannot is that there will be an art of book for sale some time in the not too distant future . So in the meantime, here is a look at Mona if she were born in the era of some of the classics.

blushing bride...

Just a drawing for fun.

odds and ends...

Few odds and ends from my day job, and some contracts from a couple years back. It's funny looking back and picking your stuff apart. I guess it's a good thing to be able to do that. It signifies progress. Nonetheless some fun memories.

Vunder Voman(Sorry. Some left over Vampyre Story)

Here's a sketch for a piece I'm doing for a friend of mine. Color version coming soon.


A Vampyre Story

Some how over the last couple of years, I've somehow lucked out to work with one of my favourite background artists in video games, Bill Tiller. Bill is a lucas arts veteran with many big titles under his belt including on of my favourites;"Curse of Monkey Island"!. I've had the privilege of doing some 2D art including character designs, and fmv background painting on "A Vampyre story" which has been released in Germany and is soon to be released in North America. Anybody who likes the classic point and click adventures should check it out here.


Here are a few odds and ends. I'll see if I can post some of the character designs soon....


Cleanin out the Attic

Here's some odds and ends from the old site that I figured I'd put up at least to get started posting. The last year has been spent doing a bunch of work protected by NDA's and I've had little time to do much of my own art. With the release of "A Vampyre Story" I'll probably post a few random sketches from that if I'm allowed and I expect to be posting more regularly in 2009. At least that is the plan. I hope. Cheers for now.

the procrastinator

Well after several failed attempts at mainting my webpage and keeping it current, I've decided to give up and see if I have any more success "blogging". I think I need to procrastinate a bit more though before diving in. See you next month. :P
