New Program for Kids

It seems working full time, raising three kids, moving, and trying to finish my book just isn't enough stuff to pile on the mountain that is my "to do list".  So I decided to start a kids art program. I have been working in Oncology for awhile. I have limited contact with patients, but every day I am inspired by their strength, and spirit. I feel very fortunate in my life. God has blessed me with three healthy kids and an incredible wife, so figured it was time to give back a little.
I wanted to do something for the cancer patients I see everyday. I feel so helpless sometimes watching them fight this disease. So, I developed an art program working with kids who's parents have cancer. The program is still in development. I ran my first "pilot' a few weeks ago and now I am working out the kinks. I developed a character just for this program. His name is Blue, and hopefully I will be able to tell you more about him soon. For now, here is my first full color image of my buddy Blue. Hope you like it.

Rocket Raccoon

I just finished reading the new Guardians of the Galaxy and loved it. Here is quick sketch of Rocket Raccoon. Love drawing this little guy.

Character Concept

Here is another character concept I am working on for my book. I love creating these characters and telling their story,  but sometime I struggle to get the right colors. So I have officially turned this little guy over to the very talented Jeff Balke to work his magic. I can't wait to see what he comes up with. I figured I would post this to give a little glimpse on where this guys starts off and what he will end up looking like down the road.
So here is a sneak peek at a quick color sample I did on him. He still needs some development, but he is getting there.

Crazy Busy

Alright, I haven't posted in awhile. Been really busy with work and fam stuff. I am knee deep in the story have been working on over the last few months. Trying to get back into a groove. Here is one of the characters that will be in the story. Originally I had a slated for a different series, but I fell in love with the big guy and decided to debut him in my first book.
He is my own take on a Unicorn. Hope you like him.
