This is heavily based on a gag illustration I did for the MAD show on Cartoon Network, featuring everyone’s favorite cinematic God of Thunder, Chris Hemsworth.

Sketch o’the Week- Pres. Obama!

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015


Quick warm up sketch of POTUS today… bet this guy is thinking about cartoonists right now after the events in Paris at the offices of Charlie Hebdo. The National Cartoonists Society posted a condemnation of the attacks this morning.

Sketch(es) O’the Week- The Palm!

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

Kind of busy right now so I don’t have time to do a real SotW… here are a few concept drawings I did this past summer for a company that provides all the artwork for the Palm restaurants around the country. If you’ve never been to a Palm, it’s a restaurant with the walls covered in cartoons, caricatures and illustrations depicting famous people from the area, patrons, etc. as well as general gags and humor.

I did the following as concepts for possible inclusion in the redesigned Palm in L.A. I have no idea if any of them actually made the walls down there. If anyone in L.A. visits the new Palm, let me know. Clicky any to embiggen…

Sketch o’the Week- Stephen Amell!

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

I’m beyond busy right now so only had time for a quick sketch late today. The Lovely Anna and I started watching “Arrow” in the last month or two. Here’s Oliver Queen himself Stephen Amell.

What do I think of the show? It’s kind of a guilty pleasure. It is way too soap opera-ish for me to really love it, and some of the dialogue is George Lucas-level awful, but the action and the slow unveiling of the story on the island keeps me interested.

Sketch o’the Week- Monica Bellucci!

This week’s SotW is Italian actress, model and recently announced newest Bond girl, the stunning Monica Bellucci. For those American audiences who might not be familiar with Ms. Bellucci, she played Persephone in the final two Matrix movies, Mary Magdeline in “The Passion of the Christ”, starred opposite Clive Owen in the forgettable action film “Shoot ‘Em Up”, and in my personal favorite was one of Dracula’s brides in Francis Ford Coppola’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”. Incidentally at 50 she will be the oldest Bond girl ever.
