A video of me creating a decorative mask painting that will itself become an envelope that is to be used for Mail Me Art, a collection of art sent through the post and displayed in a gallery show, as well as published in a book by HOW Design Books.

I am deeply honored and humbled to have my work appear in an upcoming book about the art of legendary comic and fantasy artist, Jeff Jones. In addition to the incredible work of Jeff Jones, this art book will feature work from dozens of artists that have been influenced by Jones’ art over the years. The list of artists involved in the book is amazing.
The work I have in this book, along with the work of the other artists, will be auctioned off to help raise money for the film project. More on this auction later. Two of my pieces of art can be seen below.
Maria Cabardo has worked tirelessly for years on a documentary about Jeff Jones. Her dedication in time and money has been immense. The film is complete, but she needs our help so that she can get that film out to a wider audience and cover other production costs. Please consider donating a few dollars to her Indiegogo campaign. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/better-things-the-life-and-choices-of-jeffrey-catherine-jones
I finally got around to editing a video my wife and I shot in December of the creation of my acrylic painting called Winged Wraith. A few years ago, I did a painting for Magic: the Gathering called Chainbreaker, which had to go through two rounds of revisions in the sketch phase. The second sketch, and the one that led to the final painting, was chosen by the art director because it was more in keeping with the look of the scarecrows from the game than my first drawing. I always liked that first drawing though, and had hoped to some day create a painting of it. I finally got the chance last year. So here is a brief look at the creation of Winged Wraith.
