YEAR OF THE YETI!

Uncategorized

I guess for all points and purposes this post is a “year-in-review” type of thing. I don’t get to update the site as often as I should (or would like to) so there is a lot of stuff I had the privilege to work on in 2012 that I never got around to sharing on the site.¬†Strangely, a couple of those things were “yeti-centric” or, at least that’s the way it felt. Most likely this due in great part because I spent the bulk of my energies focussing on getting The Atomic Yeti completed for Dan Cooney. While Atomic Yeti didn’t make it off the ground, as I and Dan had hoped, it is still a project I am very proud to have worked on and one that I would welcome the opportunity to finish one day.

I also had the chance to do some more work for a great company I’ve posted about in the past, Light BOHRD. This time around I was asked to provide artwork for their new line of light-up snowboards. One of those pieces was to depict (you guessed it!) a yeti. I always jump at the chance to work with Light BOHRD, especially because they make such awesome stuff, and this time was no different. Two of the boards feature artwork adapted from the skateboards I did previously but the yeti art is all new and (I think) turned out pretty well.

In keeping with the yeti theme of this post, I am also including a sketch I did for one of my customers at the comic shop. Kyle Schwingendorf (I really hope I spelled that right and apologize profusely if I did not) was kind enough to support the Atomic Yeti project by purchasing a copy of the comic when it went on sale. He then asked if I would like to do a yeti themed sketch in his sketchbook. Heck yeah!

I have additional work from 2012 that I plan on posting here in the coming days and weeks. For now, though, I feel like keeping with my perceived theme for the bygone 2012: Yetis! Enjoy.

Cover Comps for Yeti Kickstarter

Uncategorized

The Kickstarter campaign to fund the remaining pages of Atomic Yeti rolls on and so Dan and I have been busy devising additional donation incentives for those kind enough to give us their hard earned money. Below are a couple of cover concepts I’ve been working on for a special copy of the preview book we’re offering. My favorite is the last one, I think.

PLease bear with me while I make some updates to the site and fix some bugs here and there. Most notably, the fact that some how the Comics page seems to have completely disappeared… huh.
