He is loosely inspired by the film "Manos: The Hands of Fate", Early Donkey Kong bosses, TMNT 3: The Manhattan Project for NES, and "The Warriors".

Currently working on the concept art for "Let's Hear It for the Coney Island Boys". Here are two characters, and am currently finishing up a street scene that will appear in level one!
Now that I am living in Park Slope I have about a twenty minute commute to my studio in Chelsea- allowing me plenty of time to catch up on some books I have been meaning to read and draw all of the people on the subway. Here is a collection of some of the drawings I have been doing while riding the F train.Now it's back to working on some pixel illustrations for my class with Marshall Arisman and Carl Titolo and then off to LGA later tonight to head back to Columbus for a few days.
So excited to get some ice cream from my previous employer (Blackstrap Praline- literally one of the best things I have ever tasted) and too spend time with this girl.

This particular painting is about a time in my life when I was obsessed with the American sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air". I was around the age of 7 or 8 years old and my mom let me get a flat top hair cut with steps shaved into the side of my head- modeled after Will Smith's hair doo in the aforementioned TV show.
At the time I was attending a private school and this did not go over well with my principal. She yelled at me so much that she made me cry and informed me that I was to either shave my head or not return to school. As a result of this unfortunate altercation from the ages of 7-13 I was bald- until entering a public high school upon which I began modeling my hair after Richard Hell and Johnny Thunders.

Currently am beginning an 8 month long project in which I am making a series of sequential images and an 8 bit video game based around a fictitious animal street gang who call themselves "The Coney Island Boys". Above is the first of what will be many character designs.

A new painting for an 11'' x 17'' spread in the art publication PRISM INDEX. So Excited to be apart of Issue #2 as the publication has so many ridiculous contributors (Bill Plymton, Michael Hurley, Lisa Hanawalt, The Dutchess and the Duke, Julian Lynch, Luke Ramsey, and On and On and On).
I met Jeff Bowers (the dude who makes this) at Skylab Gallery when I was in Ohio for a couple of minutes early this month. Go to PRISM INDEX and buy a copy!
The sequential installment to an ink collage series
I'm working on entitled "Be Safe My Little Viking".
