Roof Top Jazz

So me and my brother are finally getting together this graphic novel project that's been in the air for a LOOONNNGGG time now, and we have this first book almost done. It's called Roof Top Jazz, a story about L.A. and our main character Mason Moore, an ex-FBI who end's up becoming a package boy for a local gang. Myles is writing and I am illustrating and co-writing the story. Here is just some rough character sketches I've been doing.

Mason is modeled after our good friend Corey, and is actually in the military just like our character. Well, not exactly. Mason was Special Op's for a while, the transfered to FBI. He's a wise cracking tough son-of-a-bitch that lives by the Art of War by Sun Tzu.

Paperboy, Mason's right hand man. Not sure if this is was Paperboy is gonna end up looking like in the book, but he's suppose to be modeled after Corey Feldman. Long live the Monster Squad!

Madison, Mason's ex-love interest. She end's up getting murdered by a crazed mass murderer named Chance. I don't want to give away too much, but let's just say she plays a big roll in Mason's past.


Fontana is the guy up top, just a secondary character, and Bruce is the brotha at the bottom. He end's up getting mixed up with Mason and the package situation.

Spring Show Submittions

Here is just about everything I submitted into the Spring Show. First time putting stuff in, so wish me good luck!!
Here you go Myles, the portrait you've been asking for FOREVER!!!


Heads and Hands last semester. Had fun with the toned paper.

Another portrait

Digital Illustration is kick'n my ass. Im such a noob when it comes to digital work, but this is my favorite piece so far from that class. Character assignment; she's suppose to be a bounty hunter circus freak.

My editorial assignment on Robert Ass-Pattern from Twilight. I couldn't stand 5 minutes of that movie. It gave vampires a bad name, and I don't even like vampires!!

A New Semester and New Challenges!!

Here is the first assignment (not including the digital collage) from digital illustration. Lots of fun, but I just find working with black and white more satisfying with a real pen.

And while I try to spread my digital painting wings and evolve, here are some crappy screen shots I took from Invasion of The Body Snatchers and Road to Perdition.

New Post/ Winter Break

Winter Break is almost over and school is just around the corner. Once I get this printer/ scanner working, I wana post some sketch book stuff I've been working on. For now here is some stuff I should have posted forever ago.

Here is my final Illustration 1, Megaman vs. Dr. Wiley's army + Protoman. Drawn in ink on bristol, colored in Photoshop.

Here's the original ink illustration on Bristol.

Here is a little Christmas present I ended up doing for my friends back in Redondo Beach. Their personalities completely fit the characters, so I thought it would be funny to illustrate them as Alice in Wonderland characters. From left to right: Brent= The Mad Hatter, Ashton=The Chesser Cat, Kona=The Mouse in the Tea Pot, Hailey= Alice, Me=The Mad Hare.
