At Donato's Studio

I recently took a trip to NYC with some friends to visit the sci-fi/fantasy illustrator Donato at his studio in Brooklyn. He shared some of his knowledge, we got to watch him work, and even got some great posters to take with us. Some of the pics I uploaded were; a group shot of us (top), Donato working on his latest illustration commission (middle), and Donato when he was lecturing about color, composition, and how he first got into the business (bottom).

Donato is a great artist and a very welcoming guy. If you ever get the chance to meet him I highly recommend it.

Until next time.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The City

Well I finally got a chance to put these pics up. These are from my trip to New York City. When I was there I got to meet up with a few well known artists Donato and William Seccombe.

Donato (the one in the bottom picture) is an extremely successful fantasy artist. If you aren't familiar with his work I recommend clicking his name and seeing it, it is fantastic. I hopefully will be able to visit his studio sometime soon. Unfortunately my trip was too short and event filled for me to do it then, but next time.

William (the one in the top picture) is a great figurative painter and graphic designer. He also has a great blog So go check it out, read his stuff and follow his blog. Believe me it is worth it. He updates often and shows some great demos.

Well that be it for now, I shall bid thee farewell. Goodnight to some and good morning to the rest.

I'm Back Baby

Well it has been awhile since my last post, mostly due to lack of internet over the summer. However, it shall no longer be. I am in New York with a constant stream of internet and also meaning a constant stream of new art. I have some sketches that I did over the summer that will get scanned in this week, as soon as I do I will upload them. I can't wait to get some new work going to share with all so keep a look out. That would be all for now but more to come very very soon.

Onward to the North

To update what my plans are for this upcoming year, I am off to New York, Syracuse to be exact. It's been years since I lived in the north, not since my early years in Jersey. I can not wait to see some snow again. Well thats all the update for now it is late and I am tired.
