Character studies in sketchbook. None of these are meant to be perfect in any way. I like to do loose, quick sketches trying to capture the feel or look of a character. These drawings are more idea based than art based. Finding wardrobes, appearance quirks, etc.
Below are a couple process pics of making a cover image, ink splatting and color studies over quick layouts.
I was recently commissioned with doing some illustrations for Belt’s Cleveland Guidebook. (Available here).

Turtles, turtles and more turtles! Here are some photos I took from a little walk on the Buckeye trail in Brecksville, Ohio.
Took a hike down the Akron Towpath to do some research and collection for an upcoming project and snapped a few photos along the way.
More heroes in the sketchbook.
Over the past year I’ve spent a lot of my free time writing and illustrating the first installment of my graphic novel called Lovebirds.
Ravaged by gangs, poverty, drugs, and violence, the world is no longer the place it was so many years ago. After the loss of his wife and child to the notorious street gang The Bastards, Damian wanders the broken roads alone in the only running car left trying to stay alive one more day.
Miles away, the savage king-pin and leader of The Bastards, Lord Baylor has enlisted two dangerous killers, The Brothers Maero, to hunt down and bring him Mira Cross, a young woman who is trying to assassinate him for the murder of her family.
Lovebirds is the tale of two separate lives intertwining in a violent storm of chaos, blood, destruction and revenge.
Lovebirds Volume 01 The Long Road is 80 pages, 6×9 perfect bound book, full color. You can purchase the physical copy from Amazon ($12.99) or a digital copy at Gumroad ($5.00).
