I named him “Pedrito.”  For anyone that has seen my instagram posts of him in the past…yes, he is still a work in progress, I’m not in a rush to finish him. Don’t mind his horns, he’s a good guy.

Fucking Politics

I hate politics. The “people” never win or are taken care of. If one group of people is helped another suffers. ‘In god’ I do not trust. When I heard Hillory and Dump won the primaries, that shit bummed me out. I was on the clock at the job and after the news the day dragged, it sucked. While my body went into routine, robot mode, my mind painted fucked up pictures of possible futures if either she or it became president. Within the chaos clips was the thought of drawing or sculpting a caricature so I’m going to give it a shot. I’ve started already but a friend kindly told me that my work so far does not look like the turd. I’ll post some progress pics soon.

“The Journey” Artstation.com Challenge

I’m a much better sculptor than I am an illustrator but I decided to enter a 2d challenge hosted by Artstation.com.   My first step was to brainstorm: wrote a few notes.  The next step will be to draw some quick thumbnails playing with concepts.




Mushroom Hill: Mushroom w.i.p. 2

I’ve been sculpting the mushroom by hand in ZBrush‘s ‘Dynamesh’ it still needs a bit of work but I wanted to see it rendered in Keyshot (basic).

I might start the ground and hill before I finish the mushroom so I can set the stage and maybe play around with some camera movements in Blender.

Music: Tomkimonsta

These songs by Tokimonsta can put you on a positive.
In “Darkest (Dim)” it’s not the lyrics but the tone of voice that does it for me.
Good vibes, Love and Peace.


Music: Warpaint

Enjoy all types, all genres.
If you enjoy it listen to it. Fuck trends and charts.

I’ll share what I like sometimes.
