Space-Gun Studios has taken on the job of getting our friend and collaborator Devin Kraft’s Dragon Slayer book colored and ready to print for his next Kickstarter endeavor. Below is a time-lapse video where I kick off colors on page one using Photoshop CC and a Cintiq. Enjoy!
Wallpaper Wednesday continues with a revised and remastered blast from the past, Water Lilies. This was actually one of the first pieces I finished after creating the Soulcore.net brand so many years ago. Pro tip: keep all your PSDs, you never know when they might come in handy
This week’s wallpaper is based on a piece from my illustration portfolio titled “Material Vessel”.
I’m often asked what it means and the closest I can get to explaining it properly is that it’s a self-portrait of the corporate drone I used to before I went freelance. Needless to say it holds a special meaning for me because of this.

Continuing the “up your game in 2013″ series, this image was inspired by a slew of things near and dear to me. I tried to write something poignant and meaningful but it all sounded crazy or trite, so I’ll just leave you with the below quote…
The Truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counter-intuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what’s true. - Carl Sagan
It’s been an interesting and challenging few months, and I’ve tried to harness that energy and put it into a new approach for some more detailed and time-intensive pieces. The first of those is Stranded, a new sci-fi inspired print now available in the store.
This piece came to me in a daydream, as most do. I imagined an entire back-story of a stranded cosmonaut on an alien world inhabited only by plant life, unable to eat the alien flora surrounding him without dying in the process. Left to his fate he simply waits, like the Buddhist Mummies, for death to claim him.
