NYCC preorders are live

Can't wait for New York!! Get on my list early. It will fill up. Prices are under the "Commission Me" tab. Also, this is your last chance to get a commission for the current prices as I've held off awhile on rising them. They will be slightly higher at the show and beyond.



Two awesome shows are coming up and I'm taking advanced orders for my full color painted commissions. PHOENIX in early June and then HEROES in mid June are now open. It's my preference to do most pieces in advance. What you'll get is my best, in my home, comfortable with no distractions. Conventions are hard places to do your best work. Plus all pieces will be ready for pickup at the start of the show. Use the "commission info" page to see about rates and the "contact me" page to set it up. Comic blanks will have to be done on site. thanks.


Introducing...a new stamp line

I'm really excited to introduce my own stamp line through STAMPERS ANONYMOUS...THE ART OF BRETT WELDELE.

The launch will contain six cling sets. All the sets have a retro flair with steampunk and rockabilly concepts. The last one is a texture/ transition set. I wanted them to be a bit playful, even tongue-in-cheek. All are hand designed images.

I'll be at the CHA Mega Show in Anaheim, California January 11-13. Come say Hi!

Here's a sneak peek at the sets! Click here for more info and to order directly.


Rose City and NYCC commission slots open!

Two big shows are coming up and I'm ready to have a blast at both. First up is Rose City Comic Con in Portland and then New York Comic Con in October. That means i'll be doing full color, painted commissions, of course. :) Use the "commission info" page to see my rates and the "contact me" page to set up the piece. All pre-orders will be available to pick up at the start of the show. Thanks.


No SDCC sale!

For the second year in a row, I sadly won't be at the sprawling San Diego Comic Con. That doesn't mean San Diego can't come to you though. For one week only, I'm offering 9x12 Distress Ink headshots for only $40 shipped in the U.S! International add $15.

Use the CONTACT ME page to set up your commisssion. I accept Paypal only.


Distress Ink Painting- Steampunk

So, I was going through some SD cards recently and found that I had filmed myself painting something I'd forgotten about. It's a 10"x15" Steampunk Distress Ink painting! You may recognize the piece from a recent blog entry over at You can read more about that here.

In the meantime, I talk a little bit about the creation of this piece in the video.


Distress Paint demo

Hey, it's been awhile since i've uploaded a video. Oh, how time flies! Anyways, here's the first (of many)!

You know you can use various Distress Inks with each other, and Distress Paints with other Distress Paints, but did you know they work really well as a team? Acrylic and Dye Ink make some interesting things together. This and more in this first Distress Paint video...enjoy.


Heroes Con commissions now open!

Whew! Just got back from having an amazing show at Chicago's C2E2. Just as i'm catching my breath from that, it's time to open up pre-orders for Heroes Con in Charlotte. If you've ever thought about getting one of my Distress Ink paintings, now's a great time before rates will have to go up. See the commission page for details on how to set one up. See you in just over a month. :)


Tutorial: Intro to Complementary Color

Today, we're going to take what we learned in the Monochromatic tutorial and turn it up a notch. Enter Complementary colors.

What's a Complement? Simply, two colors that face each other on the color wheel. Blue/Orange, Red/Green, Purple/Yellow etc. We'll get into more depth in later tutorials, but just know that they are color opposites!

So how does this apply to coloring? One very powerful coloring technique I use a lot is using complements against each other to achieve easy contrast. I'll show you what I mean in this example.

C2E2 pre-order up!

This show is coming fast! If you'll be at Chicago and would like one of my Distress Ink paintings, now's the time. Every pre-order will be done in advance, so you can pick it up right away. I love doing these! It's such fun to figure out my take on your favorite characters.

Please note: I'm not sure how many commissions I'll take at the show, but I won't be doing the larger sizes on if you want something bigger than a 10"x15", Pre-order! :)

You can find a price list on the COMMISSION INFO page.

Use the CONTACT ME page to set it up.

Side Note: I'll also be at Texas Frightmare in Dallas the next weekend. I won't be set up anywhere, but I can bring pre-orders with me and meet up on site.
