J. S. CHOIThe spectrum results are in and sadly I did not make it in this year. A bit depressing but just motivation for next year.
However awesomely my best buddy J. S. Choi was selected. It is so awesome that she did, I am extremely proud of her. I decided to attach one of her images so you guys can see how great her work is. This is her depiction of Sleeping Beauty.
I also encourage everyone to go check out her blog and her deviantART and see all the awesomeness yourself.
Well now I must get back to the grind stone for even better submissions for next year.
Hey everyone I have some great news my Frazetta tribute piece was accepted into the Frazetta Tribute show at the Gallery Provocateur. The show opens the weekend of March 18-20. The same weekend as C2E2 in Chicago. The show will be going on for three months so if you get a chance go check it out there will be lots of amazing paintings.
Also my buddy J. S. Choi got a piece into the gallery as well so make sure to check it out as well as the rest of the gallery.
I am not sure if I can personally make it out there for the opening but if anyone goes there please let me know how it is.
2010 has been quite an interesting year, hell it has been an amazing year. I was very fortunate to start getting some really nice jobs, got into ImagineFX (although you won't see me in there till next year), and I won one of the Illuxcon scholarships. It has truly been an amazing year.
In fact I remember talking with a friend of mine Mike Burns about how 2010 was our year. See he as well as my other friend J. S. Choi have all started to get some great jobs this year, things for all of us have really picked up. And if you are not familiar with their work please make sure to check them out.
It feels like our careers are really taking off. Now I am eagerly looking forward to 2011. I have some really cool gigs coming up that I can not wait to share with you guys, and I also have some really awesome personal projects and samples that will be done soon. Also expect the third installment of my pin-up series to be posted soon. It is finished I just have to actually post it.
Hopefully 2011 can be just as exciting as 2010. So cheers to a great new year to you and yours.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
About a few months ago my friend and fellow artist J. S. Choi and I were talking to author Doug Brode and we were offered a job working on his graphic novel about Jack the Ripper. This is the test image that we did together for the project. J. S. is the line artist while I do the painting.
The company that is publicizing this seemed to really like the work we did for them. Right now we are finishing up the first few pages and then we should finalize the contract.
Once we get confirmation about everything i will let everyone know. The book will take awhile to illustrate being the fact it is over 150 pages, but once it comes out make sure you pick up a copy of it.
