  1. great, very inspiring.
    can i ask your technique? watercolor or guache, me and my girlfriend couldn’t decide. also what paper type? I am also unsure if it is or isn’t all digital media. I think not but i am very 20th century.
    will i see you at freddy’s???

  9. Hi Kurt – I work with your mom and she sent me your site. I had no idea you were so fantastically talented. Do you ever sell prints? I love 3 of Clubs.

  12. Hi Kurt and Zelda – I get such a kick out of your work that I’ve nominated you for a blog award :). Although I feel a little self-conscious passing this award on, it’s given me the perfect excuse to let you know how much I love what you do, from your use of colour and lines to the compositions. really really lovely stuff.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  15. I saw your work in the December issue of Realms of Fantasy (the illustration for Fragments of a Fantasy Life) and was amazed. So glad to have found you here.

  16. Your work is truly amazing. Whenever I feel down about myself as an artist, I come to look at your work to inspire me back, to remind me what kind of potential I can reach. If you are ever in the Bay Area, I would be honored to meet you. Hell, I’ll even buy.

  18. Hi, I enjoyed your blog{s} and the art, especially the watercolor on plate bristol which is what I do. Just wanted to connect with other artists who do this rare technique, and those who do it in comics as well:



    ps I have a how-to blog for this technique you can pass on to anyone who wants to learn it:

  19. Could you send me the links for all your A is for Artist postings on Tor.com? I can only find a few. I’d like to write your series up for the Art News DFW website. It’s a great resource for enjoying both well-known and obscure but fantastic artists. I’ve enjoyed it so much. Thanks.

  20. Very nice work. Love the FRAGMENTS illustration for ROF magazine.

  21. Really incredible work, all! Where can I see more of your work other than the Tor.com site and this sites It was really interesting to see how the actual digital photography was morphed into digital animation. Was the Realms and Fantasy work something you came up with on spec? I’m curious how this business works.
