The Divorce Sketchbook

These were dark times. Shortly after starting this sketchbook the life I knew was suddenly and violently torn me. After seven years of marriage Virginia she asked me for a divorce. It seams she had finally grown tired of living with an artist. I hope one day my boys will understand how hard I tried to make it work. I spent a good part of this last year looking inward. It has been painful yet enlightening. I would never wish… Read more »

Alex Gray

I think on a subconscious level I’ve really been inspired by Alex Grays work. I was introduced to his art in college, my roommate kept a book of his paintings on the coffee table. I haven’t thought about it in years but this morning while rewatching Holocrons of Fate it dawned on me how much he has influenced my storytelling and design.

His painting the Theologue was always one of my favorites. I must have tapped into its influence while storyboarding this scene from Star Wars Rebels.

Showdown in the Sith Temple

Found this while cleaning up the rats nest which is my art folder. Vader vs Ahsoka Tano in the sith temple. Painted it while storyboarding on the Twilight_of_the_Apprentice. It was a really fun episode to work on and worthy of some in-house fan art.

Beach Break

Sitting at a desk too long. All my day dreams are about salty air and large swell rolling in. Need to find my way back to the water.

The Green Sketchbook

This Sketchbook is from 2014. Most of it was drawn in San Francisco while working for Lucasfilm on Star Wars Rebels. Parts were drawn in Hong kong and Vancouver. I should note that this book was taken by my five year old son one afternoon, he added some lovely drawings too it. Its the first time anyone has drawn in one of my sketchbooks. Mixed feelings, I probably would be upset had it been anybody else. His drawings are super… Read more »
