Ruby Gloom and Doom Kitty!

Wow, this has got to be one of the cutest tattoos I've ever seen! And it's always unbelievably flattering to see something I designed on someone!

This little illustration of Ruby and Doom kitty comes from the title page to the first Ruby Gloom book called- Keys to Happiness. Many thanks and much love to Cássia Novais-

who decided to give Ruby and Doom Kitty such a special place in her life. It's so incredible!

Tiger Lilies

Here are the tight sketch and color comp of one of the 8 paintings I'm putting in a show at 1988 SF at the end of June. I really need to start painting now!

Kaz-well CD cover illustration

Here's the CD cover illustration I did for Kaz-well's first release! The concept was "lost at sea" so I thought a little penguin in opening water accompanied by Octobunny, Crabby Bear, and Sea Monkey would be perfect! These giant sea creatures are looking out for the little fella to make sure he gets his second record release ;)

To check out some of Kaz-well's music please visit his myspace-

Hope you dig!

I HAS NEW TEES!

Yes, indeed I has!



Elephantation- Just doing my part in bringing attention to deforestation!

Crabby Bear- Half crab half panda bear who is easily irritated, but means no harm!

Na Zha the Rider- Based on the Chinese mythological character Na Zha who sacrificed his life to save his village was then turned into one of the gods and given a pair of golden wheels and spear. Nowadays he rides his golden fixed gear bike in Hollywood!
