Miyazaki Totems

A Studio Ghibli / Hayao Miyazaki-themed group show opened at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco on February 2nd. My contributions to the show are two 8″ x 24″ original acrylic paintings on canvas (sold as a set). The “Miyazaki Totems” were a lot of fun to work on – It was an opportunity to re-visit my favorite Miyazaki films and put my spin on many of his beloved characters.

New Paintings

you-remind-me

“You Remind Me of the Babe” 16″ x 20″ acrylics on canvas. 2016.

In preparation for a group gallery show celebrating all the celebrities that had passed recently, David Bowie came immediately to mind. “Labyrinth” is such an iconic movie from my youth and when I think of Bowie, I think of the Goblin King. I watched the movie four times while painting this, pausing here and there to get a good look at certain characters.

Prints available HERE

“Remnants” 12″ x 16″ acrylics on wood. 2016.

driftwood

“Driftwood” 6″ x 12″ acrylics on canvas. 2016.

I found this painting half-finished sitting in my closet gathering dust. I cleaned it up and spent a couple days finishing it up. Had I finished painting it awhile back it would have been a very different painting – no rain and the little guys in its head were going to be white. Not sure I’d have added the leaves on its back either. Funny how things evolve…

Board Game Launch Delayed

By Order Of The Queen

baroness_box

Okay, okay – I know what you are thinking. I keep saying that we are launching soon and we keep postponing.

We are working and polishing this gem and will finally be launching this January 2017. Though that is still a bit off and the Kickstarter campaign will be running several months later than expected, the good news is that the later campaign won’t actually delay the production of the game. Had we launched earlier as we had hoped to, we still would have been working on getting the files ready for press well into February 2017. Anyways, thanks for your patience!

Some general info about “By Order Of The Queen”:

“By Order of the Queen” is a 2-4 player family-friendly cooperative fantasy board game where each player plays a party of adventurers. Go on quests, visit the town, fight monsters and follow the Queen’s orders to bring stability and order back to the kingdom.

Not-Quite-Daily Sketches Are Starting Up Again

It’s been awhile since I ended my sketch-a-day but I’ve been wanting to start it up again and it is finally happening now! I may post some of my new Daily Sketch feed here in the blog, but the best way to follow them is to follow me on Instagram or Facebook. I’ll most likely be posting 3-5 sketches a week but I’ll try to keep it up.
