November 2023 Art Update

It has been way too long since I’ve shared recent works here, so, here goes!

Above are a bunch of recent-ish watercolors. I haven’t done a whole ton of those this year, but I really enjoyed working on them.

Pen drawing of some floating islands with a house, a waterfall, all colored with colored pencil

I have also been doing a bunch of line drawings like these — and a TON of these little prop doodles. They are fun.

Four drink glasses, one shaped like a boot, with trees growing from them

I have also picked up a small drawing tablet and been coloring things I draw in pen, digitally. It’s fun exploring these more surreal scenes.

Update! Feb 2023

It’s been a while since there’s been a post here! I’m not sure how much I’m going to, but we’ll see! My site crashed last year and was down for a few months. Lost some posts. So, no time like the present to at least get things up to date a bit!

Here’s some art from the last bit, to show off where I’m at now!

  • A scrap metal bunker floats on a small island, above a sprawling badlands. There's balloon-shaped trees floating on their own islands around it, with a broken planet with a ring around it in the turquoise sky.
  • A tree leans over a cliff ledge with a spirally sky in the background, and little metal bunkers floating toward it. In the sea is a bunch of rocky outcroppings.
  • A giant, steam-powered walking village wanders through a desert on spindly legs. A rope ladder hangs from behind it. There are giant turquoise trees that look like snails growing in the background, which is a hazy, cloudy sky. Some giant yellow-shelled snails wander the foreground.
  • A bright white cyborg whale cruises through the water. It is powered by jet turbines, has a pair of metallic fins, a laser cannon mounted to its forehead, and circuitry accenting its eyes and fin.

I’ve been leaning into digitally-coloring my ink drawings and having a lot of fun with it. Something I’m especially proud of is how much better depth and texture I’m adding, as well as increasingly-expressive line art. I find that embracing the loose and controlled-chaos of my work is beneficial to what I want to achieve. Plus it’s fun!

The three digital illustrations here are from my Ominous Doom Planet, world. I’ve been exploring and expanding upon it more. It’s a great playground to see where my creativity takes me.

Some lore: Those floating scrap-metal bunker things are from a cult I’ve been referring to as the “Temple of Tetanus”. It’s delightfully bizarre, isn’t it? Anyway, my thought is they’re like these not-dead-not-alive cyborg types who aim to catalog things and discover the purpose of their existence. And it’s an absurd existence, at that.

They construct these metal bunkers that often are floated on a chunk of ground. What a cool way to travel! Especially since gravity is strange here, on the edge of reality.


Album art for an album called Otherworlds, by The Astronaut King and Jank Hambrams. It portrays a mountainous landscape with two spiky, scrap metal bunkers. There are small plateaus, fluffy yellow and turquoise trees, and a path leading toward a bunker in the distance.

Oh! I should mention: My buddy The Astronaut King and I have a new split album up for pre-order. It has my art, his awesome spaghetti-western-in-space guitar music, and my delightfully bizarre “madman electronica” on it.

Two musicians. Two distinct styles. Ten songs. Two tales set in the Otherworlds. All awesome. We each have a song released right now, with another one coming sometime soon! Go check it out. I’m certain y’all will love it!

Well, there’s a fun tidbit for y’all to muse over! I fully intend to upload some more sometime soon. Been busy busy busy!
