This portrait was a little tricky because the original photo it's based on had half of Michael's face covered. And no one's face is a perfect mirror so I had to make some interesting choices when it game to distinguishing one side of his face from the other. Though I do think the illustration wound up making his face look wider than it actually is.

Binx is Corbyn's Weapon of Choice


Looks a little incomplete, doesn't it.


I started this drawing like any other... then I realized at this stage it looked a lot like a red clay sculpture... and we all know what you can do with red clay sculptures. :-)

This tree is derivative of an image I found online:

I combined it with some other photos of trees, snow and a candle to make a composite image:

I then added a title and some boilerplate text to create another book cover for the same film project:

Naked Beneath my Clothes

This is a book cover I made as a prop for a feature film. A modification of a cover I made for my friend SammyJo Hunt.

The guy on the cover is my friend Antonio who was the art director for the project.
