Sketch Dump
Ahh! I'm so excited to have stumbled across your tumblr. Your art was a huge inspiration for me back in the early 2000's and further more as I progressed through college. It's awesome to get to see what you're working on now and to see how far your style has grown. Amazing stuff as always, thank you for being incredible!

Thank you very much. :)

A warg. Doing warg things.
Drawing snarly wolf things is like a healing balm for my soul.

Sharks are sacred animals in Polynesian folklore, and many stories feature humans transforming into one (or the other way around). Here’s a wereshark design I did for PayMaster Games. To be a miniature!

Spot illustration done for PayMaster Games featuring a Kalku; an evil shaman of Mapuche folklore whose main weapons are dead children possessed by lightning spirits and a mutant flying head monster (which is actually the severed head of another Kalku). This is the second flying head monster I’ve drawn. I had no idea it was such a common thing in mythology!

The Menehune are dwarf-sized people said to have been Hawaii’s first inhabitants. They knew how to surf long before any human did.

A spot illustration done for PayMaster Games of a “soucouyant,” a witch of Caribbean legend who can strip off her skin and turn into a ball of fire. Traditionally they were old crones, but I was asked to draw a younger one.

So I haven’t been posting anything lately. It’s not that I haven’t drawn anything, it’s just that nothing I have created I felt was post-worthy (or even save worthy). The death of my dog, Loki, in the beginning of December hit me like a truck and seemed to knock the creativity right out of me. I had some depression to deal with, and like I typically do, I hid in my cave for a while.
Working on getting myself out of this rut is taking a lot of time. I think I’ll just focus on sketching before I even think about painting. This is one of the latest. More coming soon!
