Mock Cover: “In the dark, Dark room & other scary stories” by Alvin schwartz

Been chipping away at this piece for a couple weeks in between personal stuff, freelance, and work. Here’s my mock cover art for one of my favorite scary books as a kid, Alvin Schwartz’s ” In A Dark, Dark Room & Other Scary Stories.” Its a book that is on the banned book list. I remember in elementary school, every year for Halloween I’d check this book out. I loved it so much. Still do even as an adult. Hope one day to get to illustrate a scary book or Halloween themed book.

First personal art of 2022

Hi Everyone. I know I’ve been MIA for awhile. Been busy with work, freelance, and a children’s book that I’m close to wrapping up. Been dying to work on something for myself so I decided why not go back to my 90s X-Men lineup and do a fan art piece for my favorite X-Men character, Storm.

90S x-mEN: jEAN gREY

With the recent news of Disney Plus bring back the 90s X-Men show, I thought it would be fun to work on the rest of my 90s X-Men Fan Art. So here is Jean Grey.

When I was a kid, X-Men was my favorite tv show. I’d wake up early every Saturday morning to record every episode on VHS tapes. When I got older, I had those VHS tapes converted to DVDs. They even have the original commercials. lol

This show awakened my love for comic books and even my desire to become an artist. So I’m excited that Disney will be bringing this group of X-Men for a whole new generation to meet.
