My studio is complete! Well almost... Over the last few months I have been finishing my basement to build "dino damage studios". I have been waiting years to have a personal space to work and am super happy with the outcome. Although it's still not big enough for all my stuff...
Of course the walls had to be orange (my fav colour). The drafting table will be replaced with a table for my computer once I have time for a trip to Ikea. I will hang those giant frames, but will replace the Star Wars posters with other art. Or just replace the frames. They are too big for the posters. BTW... that animation table is an official desk from Walt Disney Studios Toronto. I got an amazing deal on that thing, but it weighs a ton!
Here's a few of my favourite things in the studio. MOTU figures, Transformers: Robot Heroes, Yeah, that's Spiderman on my ceiling, jar of Battle Beasts (remember those?), Star Wars Lego collection (still a ton more to put together), part of my library, Creech (best sculpt), corkboard with various images, Harley Quinn I drew years ago and still like. Usually I hate everything I draw the next day.
I hope you enjoyed the tour but now it's time to get to work!

Well the Expo has wrapped up for another year and let me tell you it was a blast! It was an experience being on the other side of the table this year. I was able to talk to a lot of people. I saw some old friends and made some new ones. Thanks to everyone who stopped by. I think I have a couple of fans (extra thanks to them)!
So now it's back to the real world...but I'll be back next year, with a few new surprises! I'll keep posting and don't forget to check out my "Deviant" site. Thanks again, take care, keep in touch, and remember... "dino damage" is on the loose!

So here's a little promotion for my sister. Normally she does abstract paintings, but I convinced her to do logo paints. They turned out amazing! Here are a few samples. Because the glaze on them messes with the scans, the originals are way nicer. They will be for sale at the expo. Way to go sis!

A while back I took the time to create a "comic pose library" for myself. For months I just copied great poses from my comic collection. It helps when I need quick reference or inspiration and saves me time. There has been a bit of interest about said library, so I packed it into a book!
I will be selling copies at the Toronto Fan Expo this year (Aug 22-24), among other things. Here's a taste...

So I have found myself interested in tabletop games recently. More in design than actual play. I've been working on my own version of Warcraft. Mechanics and art is all me. It's taken me a while to get the gameplay to work, but I think it's good to go (after many revisions). Now I am focused on the artwork. Here are the first sketches for the unit cards.
Note: Fantasy Flight Games has already developed and released a Warcraft game, but mine is more unit specific. Besides, it's just for interest sake!
