Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor has been amazing. She hasn’t always had the best storylines, but there’s no doubt about how well Whittaker fits into the role. She just is the Doctor. And it’s amazing. So I was inspired to create this portrait. I wanted to play around with colors and create something on the more dramatic side of things. Hence, the orange highlights. I’m really happy with how the piece turned out.
Here’s the last in my three piece TARDIS series. For this one, I was inspired by the weather conditions outside my Minnesota home: cold and frozen. Sure, the ice isn’t quite as bad as depicted in this piece of art… at least, not this year. Anyway, this piece finds the TARDIS on a frozen ice planet. Are there Martian Ice Warriors here? Maybe. Maybe not. As a side note, I have to say that painting all the ice mountains was […]
One of my favorite incarnations of Optimus Prime (and there have been many) is his Powermaster mode. First of all, the toy was great. And the way he was drawn in the Marvel comics by Geoff Senior and Andrew Wildman always made him look really cool. So I thought I’d take a stab at Powermaster Optimus Prime and see what I could come up. I’m rather pleased with the results!
Yes, yes… that “There’s coffee in that nebula” meme has been done to death. But it endures. Mostly because it’s, well, you can relate. I want coffee in the morning. Kathryn Janeway, captain of the starship Voyager wants coffee in the morning. Somehow it makes Janeway a bit more human, a bit less distant–and that’s just perfect for her character. So, here’s Captain Janeway, coffee mug in hand. The background represents the galaxy-spanning voyage she and her crew completed, from Delta […]
This piece is the second in my Doctor Who TARDIS fan art series. The first piece you can see here. The second piece is my attempt at depicting the time vortex, through which the TARDIS travels (if you watch the show, you know this…). You never know where the time vortex will take you… well, okay, the Doctor knows. And the TARDIS knows. But the point is that adventure is always just around the corner. And that’s exciting! It’s […]
I love ships that feel like a home. That’s just one of the reasons that the Rocinante is a great ship. It *definitely* feels like a home. It’s hard to imagine Holden, Naomi, Amos, and Alex living anywhere else (or eating lasagna anywhere else). If you haven’t been watching the Expanse, you’re missing out. It’s easily one of the best science fiction shows in the last decade–if not longer. (I’m speaking as a life-long, die-hard Star Trek fan.) I’ve […]

I really enjoyed making this piece. It’s the third in my “science fiction in the suburbs” series. This piece features a Tyrannosaur making an appearance at the local bus stop. It’s something that, as a child, I imagined quite frequently (especially at bus stops–I always hated the bus stop, and imagining dinosaurs helped make waiting less of an ordeal). The two teens in the piece are reacting to the Rex with two different emotions: sheer joy and absolute panic. And […]
This is the second piece in my “suburban fantastic” series. I’ve had this particular image in my head for months, and it’s nice to see it all out on paper. Well, digital paper? You know what I mean. The idea here is that there’s a gigantic, imminent threat–a world-ending threat. And the suburban guy in his nice SUV is just, well, ignoring it. Until it shows up behind him with an incinerator. You can figure out the subtext on your […]
So, obviously, I have an undying love of Star Trek. But here’s the thing: I like Star Wars *too*. Isn’t that pretty wild? Anyway, in anticipation of December’s newest Star Wars film (Rise of Skywalker), I decided to create this piece featuring Rey. I changed up my usual aspect ratio a bit, and found that it added a nice bit of drama to the piece. I also changed up my colors a little, to make it more dynamic. I really […]

The 12th Doctor got off to something of a rocky start. But once Capaldi settled into his role, he was amazing. I don’t know that I can say 12 is my favorite Doctor… but if you backed me into a corner, Capaldi is probably the name I’d choose. Especially in his later seasons, he brought such raw compassion to the role that it was hard not to like. But he could also tell people shut up, which was nice too. […]
