On the heels of the monster illustration I did earlier in the month for In This Week magazine, I just had to do a portrait of my favorite Universal Monster, The Gilman from "The Creature From The Black Lagoon." Using my Creature figure as a model, I drew him in ink and colored him digitally. You can watch video of me sketching and inking the black of the Gilman on my channel at Draw Dammit. Just click on menu, and click on "movies". The "Creature Feature" will be under 10/19/09 5:34.

My wife got me the Star Trek Trilogy collection (ST 2, 3 & 4) on Blu-Ray for my birthday and after re-watching "The Voyage Home", I got inspired to do this peice in gouche. I love this scene, I crack up everytime. Kirk's reaction to Spock swimming with the whale is priceless and I've often thought that the whale's was pretty much the same.

The next one I did for my niece, Katie, was of Michael Phelps with a gold medal and Rosetta Stone to help him learn Chinese. Yeah, go ahead and make your stupid pot smoking jokes -- I still think he's cool. I did this before all of that happened though.

As far as the movie goes, even if you've never watched Star Trek, you might just like this one. I highly recommend it.

I've been meaning to post about this for a couple of weeks now, but keep forgetting to. This is the cover to this years Summer Movie Preview for The Salt Lake Tribune. As always, since I love the summer movie season, I love putting together this section and making it look great. This year, our film critic Sean Means got an interview with Pete Doctor, the co-director of Pixar's "Up" so I decided to play off of the main poster to tie together some of the other movies coming out.
Even though making it look monochromatic was an idea I had before executing it, I decided to go ahead and paint it in full color with gouche, just to see what it would look like in case I liked it better. I made sure that I kept the values light enough so I could make it monochromatic in Photoshop later.

These paintings will also be a part of a new show called "World of Imagination" at the APW Gallery in Long Island City, NY. There are about 500 artists participating in this show, all contributing up to 5 12" x 12" paintings a piece! That's going to be one heck of a show!
The opening reception will be this Friday night at 6 p.m. and the show runs through March 29. I won't be able to make it, but if you happen to be in NY, stop by and give the show a look!

Considering I worked on putting it together for almost a month, it is very gratifying to be recognized for my effort! I had a blast putting the page together. The page (above) will hopefully be included in the Best of Newspaper Design book from SND coming out this fall.

Anyway, I guess we should be happy that overall Bats got 8 nominations in all. Not bad for a “comic book movie” as movie snobs like to degrade it to.
Also, Wall-E, another best pic hopefull only got a best animated pic nom. I guess the vindication here is that Andrew Stanton got a best screenplay nom for the film.
