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.
Been participating with these Draw This in Your Style challenges with one of my favorite illustrators, Rhode Montijo. He’s known for his vintage illustration style and also our shared love of Halloween and the Fall season. Here are a few illustrations I’ve done for this challenge the last several weeks leading to Halloween.
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.
Ho Ho Moooooooo. . .erry early Christmas! lol “Hey! You’re NOT Santa!” (Scholastic) by Ethan T Berlin and illustrated by myself will debut on September 7th, 2021. Be sure to preorder at your local bookstore or online. Its a cute and quirky story about a cow that stalls for Santa. So get your milk and cookies ready, hang those stockings, cause you never know, you may have a cow filling in for Santa this year!
This Last Fan Art Animal Alphabet Characters are: U for Uncle Scrooge, V for the Velveteen Rabbit, W for Wile E. Coyote, X for Xerneas (Pokemon), Y for Yogi Bear (additional Boo Boo), and Z for Zell (Animal Crossing).
Glad to be back at doing the weekly prompts for Animal Alphabets. This round we have been focusing on Monsters from movies or books. So A was Audrey II from the “Little Shop of Horrors”, B is for “Babadook”, C for “Creature from the Black Lagoon”, D for Demogorgon from “Stranger Things”, E for “Edward Scissorhands”, and F for “The Fly”.
