Hopefully these are sketches for larger paintings–now all I have to do is find the room to complete this project.drawings31.jpgdrawings1.jpgdrawings2.jpgAfter visiting Paris this summer, my mind was overtaken by so much of the place–it was a very unexpected thing. I find myself trying to incorporate much of my memories of France into some new art. I have been working on a story based upon the tale of Behemoth and Leviathan. This is a painting of Behemoth at Pere Lachaise.behomothlachaise.jpgAnother BehemothTest cover for a book dummy. I used my friend’s newborn baby Remi, as the model–Watercolor and colored pencil on boardtitlepage.jpgTitle page for a doomed project–Pen & Ink on paperbadgersinedenonl.jpgOne of the first successful color concept paintings I did for Honey Badgers. Up until this point I couldn’t get comfortable with any direction I was heading. Stealing from Albrecht Durer helped greatly! santa.jpgChristmas time cover illustration for The Ridgefield Press–ran in 2006, 2007.

    Took a minute to run over and check out your site…I am delighted to have met you..and enjoy your work a lot. When my great grandkids are born (yet to be determined) I will seek an autoraphed book from you..for I think your illustrations magical. We wish you the very best in your Art Career and your coming marriage to Erica. It was a pleasure to meet you both..and thank you for being a good friend to Marc.
