Preview of "Into the Rabbit Hole" FRIDAY Night!

The past couple of weeks I've been working on a very complicated drawing (my fingers hurt to type) for the Into the Rabbit Hole art exhibit in East Nashville.  The show is one night only this Friday featuring live performances and art from local artists.  Everything is Alice in Wonderland themed and you can even win some cool prizes for dressing up as your favorite character from the book or cartoon!  Everything kicks off around 7PM at The East Room in Nashville.

For my artwork, I wanted to create my own homage to Lewis Carroll's famous work.  Much of the character designs I used was a fusion of the book, cartoon and my own wild imagination.  Enjoy these teases but you'll have to come to the show Friday to see the complete work!  Here are some process pictures of the entire process over the past couple of weeks from the sketch to the finished colors...

The Zopocalypse

Recently, I was commissioned by Revolution Zo to work up some new album art for the music he was dropping this week.  He sent me some pictures of himself and explained how he wanted to be in a sort of futuristic robo-armor-jacket with some apocalyptic end-of-the-world art.  Sounded right up my alley!  After some discussion, we decided to go with some sleek futuristic armor (nothing weaponized or too much like Iron Man or the sorts.)  I wanted to create something completely original to fit the hip-hopper's tone.  Here's a look at the finished product along with some process pictures.

In Memoriam: Leonard Nimoy

A star shines brighter somewhere in the Universe which brought Leonard Nimoy back into its eternal grasp this week.  The actor best known for his portrayal of Spock on Star Trek became a cult icon of pop culture and will have a lasting affect on the world of science fiction.  I grew up not only on a healthy dose of Star Trek but also with Nimoy narrating In Search Of... which I found wildly entertaining when I was young.  I created a new work of art in the actor's memory this weekend... let me know what you think by leaving your thoughts on the late entertainer's legacy in the comments section below...
