The Beast of Shaolin

The Beast of Shaolin is considered by most to be a Chinese military experiment gone very wrong. He is a combination of human, bear, lion, lobster, snake, and monkey. After escaping the laboratory and an army of pursuers, he fled into the Tibetan mountains. The Beast is an extremely deadly force and a master of kung fu.

The Dark Knight

A lame quickie I made while watching the movie.

Hold My Purse

This is a mish mash of cartoons that I originally made about a year ago. I plopped them together into the same picture and refined them a bit for this week's Art Jumble topic of pink.

Another Self Portrait

I guess I thought it was about that time. I painted this in Adobe Photoshop CS5 by starting with a photo and then used a combination of the new mixer brush and my standard paintbrush. It was a pretty cool technique! I'm loving the new features in CS5.

Rate my shirts at Threadless!

I have just recently submitted my t-shirt designs over at If you would be so kind and could take a couple of minutes to rate them with what you think they deserve, I would very much appreciate it! Also, if you like them, selecting "I'd buy it as a tee" would be super great. You won't actually have to buy anything.

Here are the links:
Bowel Movement (Rating has ended!)
Christ on a Cracker (Rating has ended!)


Oh and I finally got this a week or two ago! Time to get crackin'.

Smokey Dude

This was originally a doodle in my sketchbook from a while back. I've liked the look of this character ever since sketching it, so I felt like doing a little something with him.

I recently began using a program called Corel Painter. It's quite an amazing piece of technology that simulates just about every type of paint and paintbrush known to man. I used it to create the background texture for the above cartoon, which gave it a nice contrast, I think. Just by messing around with the wet oil paint brushes and such I was able to achieve a neat effect. I'm still amazed at how realistic it looks!
