This week has not been a good week. On February 3rd my mother passed away from respiratory failure due to lung cancer. It was very sudden, as she hadn’t even started her chemotherapy yet. Because of this, myself and my family were all very surprised and obviously heartbroken. She was a wonderful woman, and I will miss her very much.
To help get my mind off of things I did a pet portrait for my lovely girlfriend. She wanted to give it to her mother for her birthday which was this past Saturday, the 7th. Through sweat and tears I was able to complete it on the 6th. Here is the portrait.
On the left is Coco. She passed away from old age back in July. On the right is their new pup, Winnie.
My girlfriends mom loved the portrait so much that she cried, which I thought was nice. And having done something that could make someone shed tears of happiness made me feel good.
There are other things in the works, but I’m not in a great state of mind currently. Keep a look out, regardless.

Well, I finally moved. I have a big room, with amazing natural light, and I couldn’t be happier. My girlfriend and are are almost settled, we just need to get a few more pieces of furniture and some nick nacks and then we can our house warming party.
As far as my studio/ our office, it’s a little lack luster. With my job, I haven’t had the proper opportunity to set everything up. I also need to invest in a better/ bigger desk, and some shelves. But those things cost money, and as my lovely girlfriend says, “we have things that are more of a priority than those right now.” Can’t argue too much there..
As far as my artwork goes, I just finished designing a Bridal Shower invitation, and I’m working on two dog portraits. In a little bit I’ll be working on a Michael Myers commission, which I’m highly looking forward to.
Keep a look out for that and more coming soon.
Happy New Year,

I’m moving soon. So I’ll have a proper studio/ office, which I highly look forward to. Right now my working conditions are cramped, and I feel cramped. Everything feels cluttered, which is very distracting to me. So, in two-weeks when I move and I have a room specifically for my art and what not, it will be spectacular.
I say these things because I have so many projects in my head that I plan on working on. So many that my fans will enjoy, and I will enjoy doing. Despite being very busy at work, I know I will be churning out work left and right!
So, keep watching!
In the mean time, follow me on INSTAGRAM to see what I am up to. (mostly cat/ dog pics and sketches, but who complains about that stuff?)

This update is a non update. I have not been up to much. Work, and life has acquired the majority of my time, which is upsetting. My artwork has suffered and it perturbs me every single day. I am easily distracted and I do not use this as an excuse, but more of a concern.
I have a couple of great ideas in the mix and I hope you come back to see what I have brewing! Until then:

Hello everyone. Just a quick update. As all probably know, Slenderman is all over the news lately. Because of this, the BBC recently contacted me and asked if they could use my Slenderman piece in an article about the phenomenon. That article can be found, here.
In other news, tomorrow is Friday the 13th, and apparently a full moon? Hope you’re all going to enjoy some horror movies!

Hello! Just wanted to make a quick post and show you guys those pieces I did for the Art For Animals show next month. I decided to do one cat and one dog from the options, which there were many of. I had a hard time decided, but I feel I chose wisely. You can check them out: here (cat) and here (dog).
If you’re free the evening of May 10th, and live in the South Jersey area please come out and support these animals. Any little bit helps, and it would mean more than you know, not just to the animals, but for animals lovers everywhere.
Hope to see you there,

Hello everyone! My job has kept me quite busy lately, but I work on things as often as I can. Currently I’m working on a few pieces for the Art For Animals upcoming exhibit. All proceeds from the auction go towards the Almost Home Animal Shelter, which I will always support. Otherwise, I have been working on some horror themed paintings that I think you will enjoy. Keep an eye out for them.. as well as everything else!

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great holiday season. Apologies for the lack of updates on here the last few months. I do have stuff to put on, I just seem to take my good old time doing it. Within the next few days there should be a few new things for you to look at, I promise.

The last couple of months have been very hectic for me. As mentioned in my previous post a few months ago, I started a new job. I am now comfortable enough and capable to be on my own, which is great. The job is also pretty cool, despite the non-routine of it. I am in a much better place than I have ever been, so that makes me happy. And happy me means more art.
I recently uploaded a couple new pieces to the Illustration folder of my portfolio, as well as a sketch to the sketches folder. I’m working on getting a couple more sketches uploaded, as well as a few paintings I have completed recently, so keep a lookout for them. If you would like to see what else I’ve been up to, or get updates on various projects I am currently working on, head over to my FACEBOOK PAGE and like it. I try and post a few times a week.
Oh, my girlfriend and I booked a trip to Jamaica in January, and it’ll be my first time out of the country. Excited doesn’t begin to explain how I feel about it. Cannot wait!
Until next time.

Hey everyone, I am sorry for the lack of updates lately. I recently started a new job, and as I’m a rookie I have been training and what not. Needless to say, it’s taking up a lot of my time. Expect some updates in the very near future, though!

I recently spent the better part of two weeks working on a mural over at The Tortilla Press Cantina in Pennsauken, NJ. The owner, Mark Smith commissioned the piece. Please take a look at it here!
It took much longer than expected due to how large and high up the piece is. Mark had scaffolding installed for me, but they were in sections.. so I was constantly climbing up and down. However, it was fun working on it and Mark enjoys it so much that he is commissioning another mural that is to be completed very soon.

I have added a few new pieces to the Illustration part of my portfolio. One, is titled, ‘A is for Astronomical,’ and the other, ‘D is for Daredevil.’ They are part of the Alphabet series I had previously mentioned. I will add more as they are completed, and perhaps eventually I’ll have a page dedicated to the entire series? I’m not certain when that will be though, as it is going to take quite some time to get them all done. In any case, keep a look out for more of them, and more paintings in the very near future. Hope all is well with all of you.

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season. Mine was certainly one of the best in recent memory, so I have no complaints. I sold a few more paintings recently, which got me to thinking I should try and sell more of my prints. So, in hopes of doing just that I am giving a 15% discount on all of my prints being sold at my ETSY page. I will be adding a bunch more prints available for sale in the next day or two, so keep a look out. Also, if you like a piece of art here on my site that isn’t available on my ETSY page, just send me a message and if I can*, I’ll make it so. To receive the discount add the coupon code: Discount15 at the appropriate time during check out.
*Some works aren’t my property to sell

Happy Holidays everyone!

For a little over a month or so I have had some artwork hanging at The Tortilla Press Cantina in Merchantville, NJ. About a week ago two of those pieces of work sold. so today I will be replacing those two pieces with two more. If you’re around, please come check them out, as well as the rest of the artwork that is hanging throughout the restaurant. Also, it should be noted that all artwork at the Cantina is 20% off throughout the month of December!

People sure do love giving pet portraits as presents! This doesn’t bother me as I quite enjoy working on them. Keep a look out as Christmas approaches as I will most likely add another one to my portfolio. In other news, I’ve been hard at work on an Alphabet book (A is for Astronomical, B is for Bombardment.. etc) that probably won’t be finished for close to a year. So far I have A-D completed, and I think I’ll upload one or two of them in a day or two. I just want to get some feedback first.
