Mega Man 9 is OUT!!!!

Well, out in cyberspace, that is! You can download it on the Wii this week, or the Playstation 3 next week, or Xbox Live the week after that! Jon Gibson mass produced these awesome Mega Man 9 press kits for Capcom a couple of weeks ago... you cannot imagine the hundreds of old NES carts that gave up their innards for his triumphant return. So if you are lucky enough to get one of these rare press kits, be sure to appreciate the blood, sweat and other bodily fluids that went into them.

Also here is a waaaay better looking version of the actual Mega Man 9 "cover".... see, it looks slightly better than the one that's been floating around that was taken off a t-shirt!

Unicorn of Death

Here's the tribute painting I did for the Gary Gygax show that's being held at Titmouse Studios this coming Saturday! For those who don't know, Gary Gygax was the father of "Dungeons & Dragons", and without him, I wouldn't have created so much horrible fantasy art in high school. REALLY HORRIBLE fantasy art. Maybe I'll post some samples later... I was laughing at a lot of it when I was at my parents' house this past weekend. Anyways, one of my favorite monsters from D&D were Beholders, floating sphere monsters with eyes all over the place which shoot out death rays and freeze rays and all kinds of rays to screw up your party. Okay!!!

Super Mario Armageddon

Here's a piece I did for the 2008 i am 8-bit retro video game art show! This was done using acrylics on masonite board. It's been a little over two years since I've used acrylics (digital painting has really spoiled me), but I was guiltedto go traditional by show curator Jon Gibson. After hitting a couple of brick walls, I think it turned out pretty okay!

Mega Man 9 "Unofficial" Offical Box Art

So here's the leaked image of the "Mega Man 9" box art I did for Capcom! The image was taken by 1Up.com's Jeremy Parish at E3. Capcom printed the painting I made on T-shirts and handed them to the staff to help promote the game. Yes, the original image looks waaaay better than this, but I'm not supposed to post anything up until the Capcom marketing department "officially" releases this image. I'll be sure to update this post with a better quality image once this happens. Special thanks to Jon Gibson for recommending me for the job!

Patsy Cline

This is another digi-painting I did a couple of months ago for the "depARTed" group art show... the show was dedicated to those famous individuals that left our world a bit too early. I chose Patsy Cline because of the interesting imagery that is associated with country music, plus I haven't done a country type painting for years. She died in a plane crash, btw.

Old School: Roman Zombie

I did this in October of last year as a "goodbye" gift to my co-worker Roman who was leaving El Tigre to move up to San Francisco. He really likes zombies. And he chews pens.... a lot.

Yoga Flame

Hey, long time, no blog. Things are slowing to a crawl here at work and hopefully I'll have time to post some stuff on a regular basis. Anyways, here's a piece I submitted for the Udon "Street Fighter: 25th Anniversary" book. Make sure to check out the book when it comes out this summer!
