Now For Something Completely Different - My Illustration Work

I figured that since I've been sharing a good bit of my experiences and stories on here that I would add another dimension, my artwork.  I wanted to be an illustrator for as long as I could remember and even spent a couple of years at The Florida School of the Arts in Palatka, FL studiying graphic design.  I even won the Art Council's Scholarship after my first year.  Unfortunately, life intervened and I didn't finish my degree.  I owned my own business for a while designing logos and graphics, printing shirts and painting signs.  Anyway, here are some of my pieces for your perusal.
 
Sam Kinison - One of the greats.

The Bride - Inspired by Poe's Premature Burial and other stories

The Bride was rendered digitally using an Intuos 3 tablet and Corel Painter 9 software


 
Ambrose - Inspired by Addams Family and Grimsly's Children
Ambrose was rendered using an Intuos 3 tablet and Corel Painter 9 software.
 
 


Chickens of War - I wanted to do something absurd, it was almost Guinea Pigs of War
Chickens of War was rendered digitally using an Intuos 3 tablet and Corel Painter 9 software.
 

Wood Nymph - rendered in traditional methods using India Ink and brush

Scratch - Always a fan of 60's and 70's comic art, I wanted to do something in that style
Scratch was rendered digitally using an Intuos 3 tablet and Corel Painter 9 software.
 
 
 
Buster Keaton

Cthulhu
Cthulhu was rendered digitally using an Intuos 3 tablet and Corel Painter 9 software and, yes, I know, no wings
 
 
 
Where's the Party?
Where's the Party was rendered using a combination of methods.  I first drew the design in pen and ink, then scanned it into CorelDraw and converted it to a raster file to manipulate the colors.  It was a commission for a Mardi Gras Crewe to use on their t-shirts.
 
 
Thanks for looking, maybe I'll post some more once I get more of the traditionally worked pieces scanned or photographed.  Maybe I'll even get inspired to do some new work.
