Check out what I did last night. I made a NES video game! "Sea Gulls Revenge"
your sammy the sea gull and you save salt lake from the utter doom of mutated crickets and Brine shrimp. Oh yeah almost forgot Special guest Krong makes an appearance! It was really an illustration I did on an article about the video game industry in Salt Lake.
I was at the Magic trade show down in Vegas. The New Era booth had this huge screen that you could do pieces with a digital spray can. It wasn't exactly like 'spray can controls' but pretty dang close. I'd love to have this in my living room. Don't judge me on this it took a bit of getting use to.
If your not reading Haunt... your missing out. It's not rocket science but the story is very engaging, lots of cliff hangers, violence and espionage. Great dynamic art and enough story to keep you wondering. It's....Ghost (Patrich Swayze) X Metalgear Solid X James Bond X Dead Alive (The Violence Aspect).
"Draw Night" is a weekly gathering of artists from Bountiful to Orem who break free from the solitude of their studios and join forces in the name of the pencil, profanity and sushi.
And now, the Draw Night crew is set to invade this month's gallery stroll to bring you a look inside our weekly musings. So, come check out sketches, illustrations, comic books and prints from some of Salt Lake City's best video game and comic artis...ts!

And be sure to swing by nobrow the following day to witness the madness that is 24 hour comic book day! Where each artist will attempt to draw a 24 page comic in 24 hours!
As if they're not already....Zombies will be a huge deal with the new TV Show "The Walking Dead" by comic book writer Robert Kirkman. Below is one of many concept that I quickly threw together for a headphone graphic in our 2011 line. All my Zombie concepts got squashed by the corporate filter. Now all I can do is sit back and watch how Zombies will become even more of a pop culture phenomenon and wonder how a Zombie headphone would have done.
