The Warrior and the Thunderbird

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Riffing off of my Samurai and Dragon illustration I posted a couple weeks ago, I decided to create a Native American themed piece. My grandfather was 1/2 blooded Cherokee indian, all of my life I have found the Native American culture to be such an interesting topic. I loved reading history that gave me more information about their cultures and their plight in general. As an illustrator I have always been drawn to the intricate detail of the clothing and ornate bead work of the Sioux. I loved their breast plates, their use of eagle feathers, the war paint, and just endless creativity of their tribes. 

This piece is based off of the legend of the Thunderbird. A great supernatural bird of power and strength. Sioux stories tell that in “old times” the thunderbirds destroyed dangerous reptilian monsters called the Unktehila. (taken from wikipedia)

I imagine the Warrior and the Thunderbird to be jumping into battle to take on their terrible foe, the Unktehila.

Save the World!

Superheroes are still the funnest thing for me to create. I love ‪#‎dccomics‬and marvel‬ comics heroes still to this day. Though I don’t purchase them as much as I used too, mostly because I got sick of the constant event publishing the two are into now. So instead of drawing yet another image of Superman‬ saving the planet. I decided to use a character I created for my business universeK‬ about 15 years ago. He’s nothing too fancy but I think he’s fun and is really geared toward the younger crowd. 

Call this one “Save the world”

Wild Beasts

I remember when I was a kid, my mother got my brother and me a subscription to my favorite superhero the Hulk‬. Anyway, in one of the issues, and I can’t tell you what one, the Hulk went up against these animal people. An Elephant man, and like a Lion man and some others. I had never seen anything like that before and they really stuck with me. So I drew inspiration for this piece from that comic. I credit those early comics for growing my imagination, so thanks Mom!

Goodbye 2015

Well this should be my last post of the year. Interested in seeing what 2016 has in store.

I recently had a chance to work on this mashup with Joshua Janes at It’s a submission for a fan art book of Mad Max: Fury Road . I’ve posted the spread with Josh’s art on the left side and mine on the right. Also gave you a better look at my side of the piece. We shared some of the same color palette but mostly just winged it. I had a blast with this illustration and sorta hated to see it end.

Oh and here’s what the piece is for, , deadline ends at midnight tonight so if you hurry you can get in just under the wire with your own submission.

Thanks for looking.
Have a great New Year’s!
