You know what kind of world needs Batman? A world with corrupt cops. Our world. I’m really happy with the way this piece turned out. But for a while, I was concerned about the content. Batman seems to be very much aligned with law enforcement–and I’m not too thrilled about that connect. But then I remembered that Batman is all about justice. And justice is something we sorely need these days. For everyone. Because look: Black lives matter. And that’s […]
There’s that great line in Star Trek: Insurrection: “Can anyone remember when we used to be explorers?” Star Trek, at its heart, is about exploration. Sometimes that means exploring strange new worlds. Sometimes that means exploring the human condition. Often, it’s both. That’s what I love about Trek. And it’s something that I think both Discovery and Picard have done really nicely. So I wanted to showcase the Enterprise-E doing this favorite activity. A Sovereign-class starship, much is made of the […]
I’m not altogether sure what inspired this piece, other than my rather obvious affinity for kittens. I’ve been playing a lot of Dungeons and Dragons lately, so I’m sure that plays a part in the origin of this particular painting. Partly, I’ve been thinking about all the wildlife in the D&D world–how it can’t all be bad, it can’t all be monsters. So I wanted to show something a little more lighthearted in this particular Dungeons & Dragons art. Rangers […]
Decepticons, attack!! That’s what I hear in my head when I see this finished painting. Oh, and the music from Transformers: The Movie. I have to admit that The Transformers have been one of those things that has stuck with me all through my life. I’ve never tired of these transforming robots (though, I *did* tire of the Michael Bay films; more power to you if you love them, but they were not for me–at least, not after the first one). This […]

Xenomorphs are so much fun to paint. They’ve always been one of my favorite subjects (H.R. Giger certainly knew what he was doing, and everyone else who’s had a hand in evolving the look of the creature since the original Alien film deserves a lot of credit.) So, this piece was definitely inspired by Alien. The corridor has a very Nostromo feel to it. That’s intentional! I hope you like the final look as much as I do.
Who wouldn’t want a velociraptor as a best friend? I know it’s definitely something I thought about a lot while I was growing up. I mean, sure, playing fetch with your dog is great. It is. But what if you could play fetch with a velociraptor, too? In this piece, I wanted to stay away from the Jurassic Park-style velociraptor. In reality, these animals were much smaller. And I liked the way the smaller critter measures up to the human. […]
So, I call this piece of Seven of Nine fan art “Haunted.” Because how could she not be? This piece was inspired by Seven’s appearance in the Star Trek: Picard episode “Stardust City Rag.” In particular, I was thinking about Seven’s conversation with Picard towards the end of the episode. And so I got thinking about Seven, about how haunted she might be. And this is the piece that resulted!
I’m calling this Star Trek piece “The Flag Ship,” because it features two of the most famous flag ships in Starfleet history: The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A and the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E. Captain Kirk and Captain Picard meet (again?). Mostly, the Constitution-refit class and the Sovereign class starships are two of my all time favorite designs. I had a very strong urge to draw them together–both movie-designed starships–and see what happens. I hope you enjoy the piece as much as I […]
I was asked to do this piece as part of a commission. At first, I found myself way outside of my comfort zone. I don’t paint a lot of interiors–and interiors of cathedrals (or cathedral like buildings) aren’t a big feature in my repertoire. But I’m really happy I took on this project–it was a lot of fun to stretch my legs on this particular piece. If you look close, you’ll notice the Doctor’s TARDIS in there. It’s definitely a […]
So there was this image in my head of Wonder Woman. And in this image, she was battling something nightmarish in a kind of odd setting. Most people would acknowledge that image and move on. But since I’m an artist, I decided to paint it! And this piece comes very close to what I originally had in my mind. If anyone can defeat those nightmares, it’s Wonder Woman.
