Smokin’ Trench CoatsOriginal drawing 13 x 12”Graphite, Charcoal, Digital2014Here’s some art I did for the steam release of Noir Syndromr, a really excellent game that you should check out here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/299780/This drawing was done for one of the unlockable trading cards on Steam. I also did art for one of the character backgrounds that you can get.

I did this piece for a couple of reasons; the first of which being that I have been a hardcore Godzilla fan since my Mom put a plastic figurine of him in my crib when I was a newborn and am extremely excited for Legend’s reboot of the movie coming out this May. The second reason is that I watched the original Japanese cut of Gojira (1954) for the first time recently and was completely shocked by how different it was from the American cut that I grew up with. I never realized how much more Godzilla was than a fun and cheesy monster movie character. The reason Gojira was so terrifying, and the reason we didn’t get the original 1954 cut until a few years ago, is that the devastation caused by the giant dinosaur was a (then very relevant) metaphor for the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the experience of living through that catastrophe was still fresh in the minds of the filmmakers when they created it. I made this piece to remind people that all of the buildings and people that fell to Godzilla’s rampage were modeled after real death and destruction. I did this by making Godzilla a backdrop to a landscape drawing referenced directly from the rubble in Japan after the bombings.

The third and final piece in my series of illustrations based on the ghosts from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Once again stressing my fear of our use of technology and where it is leading us, I took the classic grim reaper approach to Illustrating the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come and gave him a cloak made up of tangles wires.

Here’s the second piece in my series of illustrations my adaptations of the ghosts from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. This is The Ghost of Christmas Past, accompanied by the two ghoulish children, Ignorance and Want, that suck the life out of him in the story. I gave them a cell phone, which is an indicator of my views on our current relationship with technology.

This piece is part of a set of 3, done for a project in which I illustrated the three ghosts of Christmas from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens as they would appear to me. The idea behind my design for The Ghost of Christmas Past is that he is the disembodied head of a character from an old stop motion Christmas special.

I had a lot of fun with this piece because I allowed myself a lot of freedom with it. To get the distorted look I wanted with the face, I took a picture of myself, printed it and then dragged it across the scanner bed as it scanned.
"Fast Food Robbery"9x12”Graphite, Charcoal and digital2014I was born and raised in Cape Cod, MA, which has a thriving seagull community. If you live in a place with a lot of seagulls, you’ve probably seen them loitering in fast food parking lots, stealing french fries from unsuspecting tourists. They’re really just winged thugs when you think about it.

I’ve had some people ask about this piece with concerns that my intention was to protest or disrespect the US by depicting the flag upside down. I just wanted to clarify that flying your flag upside down is a distress signal, as stated in the US Code of Laws.
