The Job

Another day at the job. It’s my third day back.  I thought I was going to hate returning to a job where creativity, almost, does not exist.  But it’s not so bad.  I use to see it as “I’m a deli guy trying to be an artist.” Now I see it clearly.  I’m an artist working at a deli.  The good thing is that art does not require a desk and chair and thanks to technology, I don’t have to carry a sketchbook, I can draw or write notes on my phone.  Time to get ready.  Have a great day world.


I am painting two of these simultaneously. Acrylic on canvas.  I titled them both “To the ____.”

Domingo, El Rey…de los bugs.

Domingo will live

So, my Zsphere armature is complete.  Now to give it better neutral pose so that I can sculpt and get to all areas of the piece.



I’m using Zspheres to block out the shape.  A Zsphere armature.



Finally!!! But there is no time for majesty.  The deadline is tonight 11:59.  So in ZBrush I am going to sculpt this design.  A man that transforms into a partial insect type creature and back to human.  For the sake of the contest I will probably not sculpt his penis and testicles.   A werebug.


Where are you Domingo?

I’m having a tough time figuring out Domingo’s profile.  I made some photoshop doodles. To see them click here.

Birth of Domingo. Notes.

I sat down with some music playing in my ears.  Ingested some caffeine and brainstormed-wrote down some notes, just pen on paper.

Creature Contest.

I’m practicing illustrating from words for a project I’m on and this creature contest popped up, deadline September 20th.  I’m going to create a monster.  Step one project folder. The next step was a name.  Though I have know idea what he will look like I have named him Domingo.
