My Inktober 2018 Artwork


Inktober 2018


If you haven't heard of Inktober before here's the scoop. An artist named Jake Parker decided in 2009 to make a little challenge for himself to draw and ink everyday in the month of October and he encouraged others to join him. Here we are 9 years later and it's still going strong. Jake puts out what he calls a prompt list, a jumping off point if you will for inspiration of art each day. There is no right or wrong here, only art. So I have participated for a few years now.

I am finally getting around to scanning my own artwork and uploading it here. Below you will see my entries this year. I will update this as I scan more work.


1. Poisonous

I'm going to try to relate all of my pieces to my Grasspeople project, a fantasy adventure. I'll do my best to have a new one each day. This is a cute little scamp known as the stinger mouse. Be careful where you step.

2. Tranquil

This is the Terrace Falls, near Quadnoc, many miles away from the Grasslands.

3. Roasted

4. Spell

5. Chicken

The indigenous creatures known as the Cheks or Chicken Warriors were searching the black river banks for a small flower known for its healing power. There is safety in numbers because this is home to the Grizzivolous which are vicious hunters.

6. Drooling

Grizzivolous is hungry and hunting on the banks of the Black river.

7. Exhausted

Exhausted. Monks ongoing search for traces of his family led him nowhere. Thoroughly exhausted, he decided to nap in the grass fields not far from the Black river.

8. Star

As Monk fell into a deep sleep, he began dreaming under the stars about the simpler times of his youth.

New York Comic Con 2018 was bigger than last year

It was another amazing year at New York Comic Con! The artists finally get a proper set up after the convention center went through a renovation last year. With that said, there were so many new and exciting reveals. Follow along as I finally get to edit and update all the pictures from NYCC 2018.


One thing is certain, TV and Video Games dominated this years Con. There was an incredible turn out of TV networks like Netflix and HBO with a Game of Thrones pop up.


That didn't stop fans from doing what they do best! Cosplay, Comics and a massive amount of geek merchandising.


Jason, Jason everywhere...


Even on opening day, there is an intense amount of people attending this year.


Every year the Cosplay costumes get more and more detailed.


I've taken hundreds of photos this year, and I will continue to post them at the bottom of the page if you want to check back.

Nasa's Mars Habitat Challenge Has a Finalist!


If you haven't heard about this yet, below is Nasa's info on the challenge.

NASA's Centennial Challenges: 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge

About the Challenge

NASA and its partners are holding a $2.5 million competition to build a 3-D printed habitat for deep space exploration, including the agency’s journey to Mars. The multi-phase challenge is designed to advance the construction technology needed to create sustainable housing solutions for Earth and beyond.

Phase 1 of the competition ran through Sept. 27, 2015. This phase, a $50,000 design competition, called on participants to develop state-of-the-art architectural concepts that take advantage of the unique capabilities 3-D printing offers. The top 30 submissions were judged, and prize money was awarded at the 2015 World Maker Faire in New York.

Phase 2 is now open and challenges competitors to demonstrate a recycling system that can create structural components using terrestrial and space-based materials and recyclables.

Phase 3, which is currently under development, will focus on fabrication of complete habitats and will follow completion of Phase 2.

With that said, check out the video below of the First Place finalist chosen for this habitat. It looks like some pretty amazing tech.

There was so much coolness at this years San Diego Comic Con I am still trying to catch up. If you haven't seen the latest trailer for the new live action Godzilla, check this out. It seems that giant Kaiju are all the rage right now with the new Animated series and now this.


Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. 


The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

Check out this epic trailer below.





Imagineering Research & Development Robots


I've got to hand to the people at Walt Disney's Imagineering, they are breaking some pretty incredible ground with these new robots. If you aren't familiar with them; Imagineering Research and Development are responsible for designing and engineering all of the magic in Walt Disney theme parks, rides and attractions among other things.


When I lived in Burbank, Ca many years ago, I knew a guy that worked in this department and he was telling me about some of the projects they had in the works and at that time it was astounding.

Check out the video below of these humanoid robots in action.
