New print - "Dragonslayer"

Worked with the fine folks at Mondo to produce a new poster for a true favorite from my childhood. Sure, there have been many dragons presented with more CG polish and sheen, but for me Vermithrax Pejorative still stands as one of the best creature designs of all time.

Phil Tippett, the legendary effects wizard who created a new form of character animation to bring Vermithrax to life, will be at a special screening / "QnA" at the Alamo this Thursday. In fact, Mr. Tippett's new stop motion film MAD GOD just surpassed it's Kickstarter goal of $40k this afternoon. Can't wait to what they do with the project.
Get more info on the Mondo blog.

Hope everyone attending the screening enjoys the movie (and the print). I'll be there in spirit, sailing the Lake of Fire...

The waiting is the hardest part..

Hello friends-

May is already half over, how does that happen? Excited to share some of what I've been working on soon--just gotta wait a few more days (you've heard that before, I'm serious this time). It's been tough to keep my mouth shut, but so far so good. All respect to Petty- the waiting is pretty unpleasant, but the damn secrecy is the hardest part.

In a bit of 'behind the scenes' news:  Just received approval on another project I was convinced was not going to see the light of day (no scandal, just random stuff out of our control). Very glad to report I was dead wrong, and it's going to print soon. Out of anything so far, this one will no doubt generate the most discussion.. will make more sense when you see it.

Most importantly- thanks again for hanging in there with me through long stretches without any exciting news (found that drawing all night makes me lose track of time in a very troubling way). No excuse though, I'm going to make a renewed effort to update more often.

Until then.. eye of the tiger, my friends (it's the thrill of the fight.)
