Grease + Ghostbusters = Ghost Lightning!

...Or Grease Busters...
Hey Guys!

I wanted to get this out before CTN but got so swamped prepping for the convention! So originally these were my interpretation of the Grease characters from the song Greased Lightning, but at dinner Mike suggested, "This is random... but what if you made it a Ghostbusters crossover?" I chuckled at first, but the more I thought about it the more I liked the idea! So here you have it!

**UPDATE: This print is now for sale on my Etsy site HERE!**
 Here's a detail shot of the characters.

CTN- X 2012!

Hey Everyone!

I'm off to CTN 2012 in Burbank, one of my favorite conventions! I'll be located @ T-29, please come by and say hello if you're attending this year! ^__^ Ahh, redeye flights, gotta love 'em! I haven't slept a wink but I'm super wide awake thanks to my random sleep schedule these past few weeks! Woo-hoo!! *falls over*

I haven't posted this on my blog yet, so here is a collection of some of the doodles I've been doing in my "For the Love of Lines" artbook! This is just the tip of the iceberg, too. I wish I got photos of all of the ones I drew when the book debuted last CTN! I guess you can call this the 1 Year Anniversary of "For the Love of Lines!"

Thank you ALL for your support! See you next week! ^__^

C'mon grab your friends,
We'll go to very
Distant lands
With Jake the Monk
And Finn the Hunter
The fun will never end,
It's Diablo Time!

Hey Guys! 
I know I haven't updated in a LOOOONG time, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I'll be tabling at San Diego Comic Con this year in Small Press Booth N-11!

The piece above is a crossover I've dubbed 
Diablo Time! The idea started out as a gift for my friend, Emmy, as we both LOVE Adventure Time and Diablo!

Upcoming Beasts & Beats: "Oh, No! Tarot!" Gallery, April 7th

Hey Guys!

This year's Beasts & Beats Gallery, themed "Oh, No! Tarot!", will feature Tarot card art by over 30+ artists on Saturday, April 7th, 2012 @ Public Works SF. More details to come! What's also neat is that all of the art in the gallery will be made into an actual Tarot deck and be sold at the gallery!

My card was the 8th card in the Major Arcana: Strength. Instead of a maiden in white clasping a lion's jaws, I wanted to draw the maiden holding up a Cerberus in one hand with ease. Like many of the artists participating, I was inspired by Alphonse Mucha and wanted to give my illustration a similar feel.

History of the Strength Card (as cited from Wikipedia):

Some frequent keywords are:
Self-controlBeing solidPatienceCompassion
SerenityComprehensionDisciplineInner strength
The design of this card is fairly constant across tarot decks. The key characters are that of a woman and a lion, with the woman looking calm and gentle, yet dominant over the lion. Many cards, including that of the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, have the woman clasping the lion's jaws. Another feature of the RWS deck is a lemniscate (a kind of geometric form) hovering over the woman's head. Other decks have the woman sitting upon the lion, or merely with one hand upon it. Some decks feature just one of the characters; flowers are often presented on this card.
