Oceano "Contagion" album cover.

Here's the album cover that I did for Oceano for their upcoming album, "Contagion". I did 3 paintings for them (I'll post the rest at a later date) and the theme for the album is a man-made viral outbreak and the eradication of the infected. I really pushed the limits on this particular project and I tried to make everything as gooey and gross as possible. If you like what you see here, the interior layout artwork will blow your mind....

More on that later! Thanks for stopping by!

Some quick cartoons...

I added some more quick cartoons to the "Dustyverse" section. While I obviously spend more time and effort on my paintings, I sometimes enjoy doing the little goofy cartoons more just because there's no pressure whatsoever on them. It's just essentially me acting like a kid, drawing whatever dumb idea comes to mind. 


Audio interview on Bonehand.com

A few weeks ago at Crypticon 2010, Bonehand.com did an audio interview with me about my album cover work as part of their Bonebat podcast. The link to the interview is here, and my portion starts in at about the 42 minute mark, but please check out the rest of Bonehands podcasts as they really do cover a lot of great stuff. 

By the way, this is officially my first audio interview, so feel free to laugh at me.


Facebook Fan Page

Due to the fact that I honestly just never check Myspace anymore, I set up a Facebook fan page. This way if you have an interest in my art and want to see updates as they happen, you can do so and it won't get neglected by yours truly.

As for current news, I finished up my cover for Oceano's next studio album, "Contagion". It should hopefully have a press release from Earache Records come out fairly soon and I'll be able to show it off. I'm also doing the interior layout artwork as well as the tracklisting artwork, so it's a fairly large project. Overall, I'm very proud of it so far and it's definitely the grossest thing I have ever painted, so hopefully Oceano fans will dig it.

After that, I have a few other things that should keep me busy as the year goes by and I'll update when I'm ready to talk about them! Thanks for visiting!


Crypticon 2010, June 18th-20th.

I just wanted to remind horror fans in in the Pacific Northwest that Crypticon is next weekend! I'll be setting up a table much like I do at the Emerald City Comicon every year, so if you live in the area come down to the convention and meet some guests (Kane Hodder is going to be there!) and buy some cool horror memorabilia! And if you want, stop by my table where I will be selling prints of my work.

If fine art prints are not your thing, though, don't let that stop you from dropping by if you are already at the convention. I'd still love to meet you!

See ya there!
