Works in Progress

Thought I’d update the blog with a quick post on works in progress. I have a couple of upcoming shows that I’m working on and a couple of comic projects that I was asked to participate in as well.

The show that’s coming up the earliest will be at the Ghostprint gallery in Richmond, Virginia. I’m looking forward to this show for a number of reasons, mostly because I’ll get to see a lot of the friends I made while teaching at VCU several years ago. I’ve not been back there for quite awhile and it will be a good time, I’m sure. I’ll post the exact dates sometime soon.

Here’s a few images I’m working on for that show. Some are old and some are new. They’re in the early stages, except for the watercolor at the end. Whether they all make it to the show or not? We’ll see.

First sitting on this oil.

Below: This is the acrylic underpainting which will be finished in oils.

The piece below was a demonstration painting at Ringling. The students put on a Demo Night each semester and invite various teachers to participate. Always fun. Mixed Media.


This piece was painted from life, but I went back in later and added a lot more color. Oil.

The piece below is of my daughter Mary and is in acrylic.

My daughter again. This was a demonstration piece at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. In oil.

And where it is now after the second sitting.

The piece below is still in progress. Oil.

The next few images are older but have never been in a show before.







Watercolor. This was a demonstration piece at the TAD seminar.

Below are pieces done for some new publications. The first is a cover piece I’ve done for a comic entitled “Red Fog”. This comic is written by Chris Williams and illustrated by Michael Docherty.

Below, cropped and with the type.

The next few images are pages for Kasra Ghanbari and Menton’s “Monocyte” comic from IDW. They’ve asked me to do a 3-page story based on their world. “Flower” is the result.
