I was a big fan of the 1990s disney cartoon, Gargoyles. Here’s the main character, Goliath, just after breaking out of his daytime stone shell. Goliath is modelled after actor and all-around handsome man Idris Elba. I gave his belt and loincloth a bit more detail than was present in the cartoon.

More art based on the At Home with Monsters/Guillermo Del Toro exhibit held at the AGO in Toronto last year.
Pale Man here is pencil and ink on 9×12 paper. Lots of detail here. Sidenote, a photo I took of this piece is now my most popular instagram post of all time. Way to go, creepy demon that is a parable to white male dominance in today’s society!
I did this piece based on a Jessica Nigri cosplay because I love the costume (and Nigri herself is a pretty rad human). Jess not only approved of the image but shared it on her social media accounts, which is pretty much the best thing that can happen to an artist outside of buying the art.
Thanks Jessica! You rock!
Probably not the last of the Iron Man art I’ll be doing this year…
Big Bob’s Burgers fan here, thanks to them finally putting it on Netflix.
You either know exactly what this image is all about or have no clue.
Ink over pencil with watercolour on 9×12.
I’ve been obsessed with this image since 2008.
Now I’ve done my own version of it.
An homage to the poster from the film The Dark Knight, turning 10 years old this year.
We miss you, Heath Ledger.

I wanted to take a swerve from the styles I’d been using and do an anime-inspired piece from the video game Overwatch. I’m *mostly* happy with the result, but I see some room for improvement so I’ll be revisiting the Overwatch world and their expansive cast of characters over the next six months.

More new art!
As of this writing, I have yet to see Black Panther. But by the time this post is published, I definitely will have. Will my seeing of the film usher in more new art? Only time will tell.
I love working on commissions especially when they’re this much fun.
One of my regular clients wanted Peter Capaldi, famously known as the 12th Doctor on Doctor Who, as a character called the High Evolutionary in their alternate reality fan-fiction based on the Marvel Comics universe.
I think I really captured Capaldi’s personality in the first image, and a great mad scientist vibe in the second.
These are both watercolour and pencil on 9×12 paper, and as a friendly reminder you can commission your own work from me anytime. Just head on over to the contact info page.
This is definitely the year of more Space Art. In addition to this Bird of Prey from Star Trek, I am currently working on a large-scale painting of a Star Destroyer from Star Wars. I also have more new Star Trek pieces on deck for this year.
To infinity and beyond!
