Chloe Grace Moretz as Hit Girl
I havent posted any new work in a while and THIS is the reason why! This piece is rather large at 22" x 30" and just took forever to finish! But I am extremely pleased with how she came out and already have a frame waiting for her to go live in!

All colored pencil on museum board. lots of solvent use on the b/g.

Midna (commission)
my latest commission - Midna from "The Legend of Zelda"! I had fun with this one! I hope you all enjoy it!

all colored pencil on bristol paper

Lil' Miss Homicidal
Some NEW art FINALLY! One of my fave "What If" scenarios is contemplating what classic actor or actress would be suitable for contemporary roles and/or characters (be it movie, TV, book, comic book, etc etc). For years now I have thought classic film actress Alice White would have made a most excellent Harley Quinn...she's got the face, the body, and the voice to pull it off and is SO good at playing bimbo's and ditzy types! So with that in mind I decided to draw her that way. Since I very often refer to Alice as "Lil Miss Adorable" I have decided to title this picture "Lil Miss Homicidal" hahaha!

for those not familiar with Alice White, heres a clip from one of her best films "Jimmy the Gent" 1934 starring James Cagney youtu.be/gPdca2v5xv4

tech stuff: all colored pencil on approx 18" x 24" 2 ply vellum surface bristol paper. (her head is life size) b/g was mostly painted on using solvent.

i sit in my Fortress of Solitude surrounded by pencils...pencils, pencils, pencils, everywhere.... hey man got any pencils? i need pencils!!!!!

and a maid too! or a wife! OR a wife that will dress like a maid when she's cleaning up after me....yeah that's it! nothing like a good old fashioned sexist fantasy *sigh*

I'm a 45 year old self taught artist living the quiet life in Vermont. I was weened on Frazetta, DC and EC comics, old movies and rock music and all of that gets into my art at some point. I'm also highly influenced by Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Old Hollywood Glamour, the Pre-Raphaelites and other Victorian masters, William Bouguereau, Berni Wrightson, Mike Kaluta, Alphonse Mucha, Olivia, Virgil Finlay, Enoch Bolles, Rolph Armstrong, Carmine Infantino, Al Feldstein and all the guys from EC comics, Van Gogh, Dave Stevens, Richard Corben, N.C.Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, Robert McGinnis, Frank Lloyd Wright and many others.

the fictional character i most aspire to emulate is Howard Rourke from Ayn Rand's "The Fountainhead", a man who IS and knows it!

my fave artist: Frank Frazetta, fave band: RUSH, fave actor: James Cagney, fave actress: Loretta Young

i love DC and EC comics!

i LOOOOOOVE Harley Quinn! Squee!

my fave car is the 1968 Dodge Charger R/T Hemi, black on black on black.

I love watching silent films

John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Buster Keaton, Steve McQueen, John Garfield, Bruce Lee, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Jackie Chan are totally awesome.

I LOVE the Star Wars saga and also the original Star trek series and films.

my trademark color is purple.

Cyd Charisse is my fave female dancer. Ann Miller a close second.

i love my little kitty Mathilda.

When i'm not drawing i like to play guitar, make things out of wood, watch old movies, lift weights, pet my little kitty, and eat -especially Italian food, a good steak, chocolate cake, cheesecake or ice cream.

I collect vintage movie paperware and classic movie star autographs and have them hung all over my house along with prints from my fave artists and my own work too of course. i love books. i love old cars, especially the American muscle cars of the 1960's. I stay up too late, always over sleep and i'm always hungry.

draw what you love so you can enjoy the creative process no matter how it turns out. you'll never make good art if you dont make some bad art along the way. we learn more from one bad picture then from 10 good ones. never stop learning or trying to be better. For me, making art is a bit of talent and a LOT of hard work and trial and error (ohhhhh the errors!)

"Great drawing is produced with knowledge, skill, feeling, imagination and the concepts of growth and action" - Jack Faragasso

"Can greater misery be conceived than that experienced by the artist who feels the fulfillment of his dream compromised by the impotence of his execution?" - William Bouguereau

"Taste is what seperates the men from the boys"- Frank Frazetta

"I wish you was a wishin' well....so I could tie a bucket to ya and sink ya! - James Cagney

"You Talkin' ta me?" - Robert DeNiro

"This is some fucked up repugnant shit!" - Sam Jackson
