“Belial’s Servant” was created out of passion more than anything else. I wanted to get back in touch with my religious roots, and it felt really good to work on this. I originally had no concept in mind for this, and it really wound up drawing itself. I used the Celestial Alphabet on her chest …Read More
This is what happens when I just sit down and draw. Inks are done and the colors are now being worked on.
I just got done reading Lewis Black’s “Me of Little Faith” two days ago. While it has a bit to do with religion and a bit to do with his personal life, it has two fairly big moments about writing.

CHECK OUT THE POSTER ON DEVIANT ART!!!!! You know what I love? Pop art, the 90’s, and Hole. I bought the album “Live Through This” for the first time only a little more than a month ago. It’s astonishing that it came out when it did, only a few days after Kurt Cobain’s suicide. Songs …Read More
