High Plains Drifters (And viagra)

This illustration is of Columbian Mammoths, one of the largest species of Mammoth and dominant megafaunal beasts of Pleistocene North America, chillin on a hot-ass day on the high plains.

On a side note, my previous url, www.robotblood.com , was bought up by a imitation viagra vendor after I forgot to re-register the domain name. So, for those of you who are still with me here - God bless.

(And I don't have any viagra for sale, sadly.)

The following two illustrations are for a 'pulp fiction' project which I found particularly fun to do. We start by designing two characters that would sit well in the pages of a 1930s pulp magazine.

First up = MESMERELDA, MASTER OF MEN!! (a sexy hypnotist who uses her powers of persuasion for evil)
mesmerelda master of men

and also THE MOSQUITO! (Italian millionaire playboy by day, ineffectual, vain superhero by later in the day.)

(These were a lot of fun to paint.)

Some Watercolor Studies and a Cartooning Award Nomination!

The following are studies based around compositions using a dark foreground to highlight a light midground. More very fun stuff from my landscape classes.
But more importantly, myself and Ed Brisson, man of steel, have been nominated in the OUTSTANDING CANADIAN WEBCOMIC CREATOR/CREATIVE TEAM Category for Skimming the Till and Catching Up http://www.murderbookcomic.com/

Check out the nomination here - some real cool stuff.
