For those in the South Florida area, I have a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles piece showing at Tate’s Comic Book Store (Lauderhill Location) for the 5th Annual SQUARE SHOW! The show is open until May and there were a lot of other awesome pieces to look at so if you have the chance please check it out!

LITTLE MONSTERS!

More little monsters have been created! They will be added to my Monsters page soon.

New Projects and DAILY SKETCHES!

I was very sick in the month of January and a lot has happened in February but to keep up here is a beautiful piece I completed for a Book Show. Every artist was given 3 stories to choose from and had to choose one to do an illustration for. I chose CINDERELLA!

CinderellaI have a lot more to show but I will show off these cuties! When the new year started, I got really into making little monsters and I’ve had more fun turning it into a game. so I allow people to give me traits my creature should have (it can be number of eyes, number of legs, what type of color etc) anything they can think up of and I have to put it all together to create a little monster. HERE are the ones I’ve done so far completely inked and colored. I have done more than one daily so I have many more that are on silly scraps of paper lol.

If there is a creature you’d like to see created just comment below (you can say just about anything, there were some really weird requests in a lot of these) and I’ll put it in my queue. YOur monster could be featured on my site!

Look out for more updates and I have other creatures that will be featured!

My Fabulous Pets

I’m almost finished with my “The Invisible Man” Painting. I should have a photo up by tomorrow! So I decided to talk about my pets. HERMIT CRABS are the pet for me. So how did I get these amazing loveable creatures? Well…about 2 ½ years ago I became very lonely in college and began heading to the pet store a lot. I mean I was heading over there every two weeks to check out the pets. I knew when I looked at them, that hamsters, gerbils etc. looked adorable but they just weren’t the pet for me. Now just to explain my FAVORITE animal in the whole world is the snake so honestly I’m not going to lie I wanted one but I knew if I had to bring it back home with me, there is no way my mom would let me in through the door with something like that. So I actually was siding towards the lizards mainly the bearded lizards or the Chinese water dragon. However, an epiphany finally set in late that summer when we went to the beach and in a shop they were selling hermit crabs.

I began to think “huh…that would be pretty cool.” I had my reservations though because I had had hermit crabs when I was younger and I had not really been fascinated with them but of course I was little. So I began to research. Whenever I’m going to buy something, I research heavily. I never do impulse buying when it involves a lot of money or in this case a living animal. I had to make sure that I had enough money for these little critters. The more I read, the more I wanted them. I realized these were going to be the adorable little guys that were going to make my life a heck of lot more entertaining. I eventually bought two purple pinchers and gave them names. One is named Kami and the other is named Leo.

And how do I feel after having them for 2 ½ years? I LOVE ‘EM! My mom also had her reservations when she heard I had an interest in buying them. However any worries she had, have since dissipated after watching me take care of them. She knows those, little crabs, may just be small crabs to other people but are practically my babies. I learn new things about my crabs every day and I still love ‘em.

I just finished buying three more hermit crabs that are known as “ruggies.”The reason I chose to get more is that they actually are supposed to have more because they are quite social creatures. But I wanted to see how I would fair with two. I felt confident enough finally to buy more crabs and I felt it was time due to the fact that Hermit crabs molt which is when they shed their exoskeleton and my crabs have started to go into longer molts. Long enough that I feel bad for the other crab that is not molting because they end up all alone.  I haven’t introduced my new crabs to my old crabs yet however I am excited to have these new guys and to learn about all their little quirks as I’ve learned about the others little quirks.
