the Gilley van Weirden workshop

This one got a bit out of hand. I had no real idea where I was going with it when I started.
St. Cecilia was drawn specifically to create a poster for a pediatric brain cancer fundraising auction.
Another album art commission that encompassed concepts of the cycle of birth and destruction as well as Algonquin creation tales.
One of many designs which was later used as a tattoo design.
This was a commissioned work for an album cover. With it we worked with the concepts of mankind’s hubris and the futility of Empire.
Rime of the Pirate King was my first Kickstarter project. There are so many little things that I love about this work.
Having painted traditional religious icons in the past, I decided to do a drawing of St. Peregrine for a parishioner who was undergoing cancer treatments.
Another piece used for feather practice, and a counterpoint to Bubo.
I had previously done a commissioned piece that included feathers, which I was not completely satisfied with, so I decided that I would master feathers.
A return to the Tommyknocker character, as an ode to antique botanical illustrations.
This was my first illustration effort at drawing after deciding that it was time to start drawing seriously again.
This was the graphic representation of a story that I had begun to write.
I fail to remember where the inspiration came from, but I found this fairy tale scene in my head and it wanted out.
