October Digital Paintings 2020

ello all hard to believe November 2019 was the last time I posted here! The months go by fast and I am creating more than ever over this past year, that has been both interesting and more than challenging at times! Anyways this last October like every October I like to create much Halloween/Horror type art be it in my sketchbook or some digital paintings like the ones I am posting here. The digital painting of the creature coming out of the sea destroying the light house was the final form from one of my Rinktober sketches out of my sketchbook. Rinktober where everyday in October I did an quick Halloween/Horror ink drawing and posted it on social media. Anyways these digital paintings were created on my Wacom tablet in Photoshop and as always they were a blast to create! Chills!

End Of Year Review

Wow crazy how fast this year went! So I only posted in January and it was of two images I was supposed to post in 2018! Funny how that works and here we are at the the very end of 2019 and I have not posted anything in between! So I will post various digital, traditional drawing/painting type images here I did over the past 12 months. It was also the 5 year anniversary of my Monday postings so I will also post a few Monday Monsters here. Cheers to you all and have a great 2020 and I will try to have a few more postings.

PLANET OF THE APES And 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY At 50

Yes I am a few weeks or so late posting this seeing both PLANET OF THE APES and 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY were both released 50 years ago, so this should of been a 2018 post. So happy 50th birthday to both great films which one would say in 2018. With that out of the way I created these two digital paintings in tribute to these two films that I really like and influence me in many ways! Also both films had apes, cool space ships, and astronauts dealing with wild situations, etc. stuff I really like in films at times! The two films also have many differences, but in the end are both great scifi/fantasy type films to me! So below is my more straight forward PLANET OF THE APES tribute piece and my off beat 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY tribute piece. Both of these pieces were created in Photoshop.  Also there are some pictures of apes and me from Creatures Con 2018 where I had a table selling my art creations.

Digital Paintings of 2018

With just hours left in 2018 I decided hey I have not posted much here this year so I thought I would put up a few posts today the last one of 2018. Here are some digital paintings created on my tablet in Photoshop. Many were created near the beginning of the year and a few later in the year. They are a mixture of mainly science fiction, space opera and some horror.






San Francisco Giants Cheer Card

This was an illustration job I did for NBC Sports in SF and it was an 11x17 inch baseball card poster like deal. I was given the player Jonathan Sánchez as my subject and I created this piece in Adobe Illustrator after creating some roughs in Photoshop. In addition I got tickets to the game that was on was the anniversary of his no hitter against the San Diego Padres. July 10, 2018 was the game and I even appeared briefly on the NBC sports show talking about what I created. They handed these cheers cards out to fans for free and I signed a few. All in all a fun assignment and a fun night! Here are pictures below of the art, final print and also my TV appearance. I just dig the Jack In A Box character in the background!
