This past summer I received my first freelance book illustration job, and it was quite a doozy. I was hired by Rodrigo Corral Design to illustrate Jay-Z's memoir Decoded which just hit bookshelves on 11/16/10. All in all I did 23 illustrations, 14 of which made it to print. Here are some of the originals next to their respective pages in the book. All of these were done in graphite.

The book is a compilation of short stories about the authors experience in Auschwitz. I always appreciate your feedback
and that's why I'm here. I tried to keep everything very loose as I am trying to move my work in a certain direction.
Hope you guys like it.

promotional Comic for the film PIG written and directed by Henry Barrial.
The deadline was a tight one and everybody involved in the project
seemed to have pulled an all nighter at some point or another, but we managed to pull it off.
Needless to say I am very happy with the result and it was a lot of fun to work on.
Here's the results!
The guys did a great job promoting the film at the San Diego Comic Con this past weekend I wish I could have been there.
The pictures look awesome.

Rework on my robot piece based on sal and peter's advice. still gotta get reference for the boy. I think the robot will be called the bully smasher 5000.
Also a sketch for a new piece I want to do in an attempt to help procure some work from my favorite card game as a kid. Athena leading an army of Spartans to defend their land while wielding her aegis. I thought it would be cool if medusa's head was affixed to the shield by stretching her snake hair around the shield and her mouth will just kinda hang open.

Anyway, for the past couple of months I've been working on stuff that I'm not allowed to post here yet. But I've had 2 days where I'm waiting for the art director to get back to me on my sketches so I snuck in this sketch for a piece I've been meaning to do for years. I want it to be awesome, so please feel free to tear it apart.
Just before posting this I've decided that I want to make the robot already alive but still almost completely devoid of any knowledge and just realizing hes not finished. Probably looking in bewilderment at his missing hand. or the missing power button where his belly button would be. That to come.

*rips hair out*
This piece is driving me nuts!
Been attempting environments because for whatever reason, I'm sick of drawing people and I need to get out of this self-imposed rut I've put myself in.
It's supposed to be some underwater command center or something..
any crits at this point would be great, because this has been stewing in my HD
for well a month now, and it's coming to the point where I'm losing interest.

Anyway i made a new post so all of you who use a program to monitor the blog would see it. I'm a part of www.ohger.com, which is like the site www.drawger.com but for up and coming artists rather than well known professionals and its still really new. The people who get in have to be voted on by the people who are already members.
This unfortunately means that sometimes there's some idiots voting down a lot of good people and I'm starting to think its because they don't want people who are better than them on the site. There's a much better chance of getting on if you're invited by an existing member.
So I want to extend invitations out to everyone on here who wants one. If the site takes off it could be really cool and a good way to be seen. You guys probably know a couple people on the site already like Francis Vallejo (he seems like a cool guy but it gets under my skin that hes so famous already...) Anyway, shoot me an email or a comment on this post and ill set up an invitation for you.
And keep posting on Tasty Paint! We got a good thing going here and its seemed to whittle down to only a few people posting. I think back to how awesome it was in Sal's class and sometimes it makes me sad. Miss you guys.

Hi guys! I'm glad I was invited to join because for some reason I can't figure out how to get comments on my own blog, so maybe here at least have a chance at a little feedback.
I really want to start painting again, and I just know I'm going to be doing it a whole different way so I don't know what they'll look like. I was thinking of painting one of these drawings, but I don't know which?
