The Time Travelers stamp set

This is pretty exciting! Normally, I send my art off and it gets sent back in some book-like format. Recently, I collaborated with craft wizard Tim Holtz on a set of stamps. It's my first interactive product. Coming March 1st!

In upcoming tutorials, I'll wheel out some simple color theory and ideas on how to color them. :)


My Restrictive Color Palette 

I drew this guy in a little 5" x 8" Moleskin back in October while warming up for a day at New York Comic Con.

Black Monday Sale

Its time for a sale, so from now until Tuesday the 26th enjoy some low rates on commissions. Check the Gallery page for past commissions. New to this sale is the Painted Tag. What it is is a painted #8 manilla tag. This is a perfect gift idea at $20 shipped. You can hang it on a tree, use it on a special gift, or hey, use it as a gift itself. You choose what character you'd like, I'll paint it, add some metal charms and stamping and put a string on it. Here are 3 examples....


Also on sale are my everyday Distress Ink commissions...

head shot 9x12 $40

figure 9x12 $70

figure 11x17 $150

prices include shipping. If you're international, add $10.

Use the Contact Me page to set it up. Thanks!--Brett


New York Comic Con commission preorders are live…

I will have a table in Artist's Alley this year…AA17.


The show is coming soon and as I get ready for it, I've opened up the commission list for it. Please see my Commission Info page for rates. Examples of my Distress Ink paintings are in my Gallery page. All preorders will be ready for pickup at the beginning of the show. I will have limited slots at the show so i recommend preordering. Also, since I can work on your piece in the comfort of my home, you'll probably end up with the best possible results.


I'm also taking preorders for sketchbook slots. $50 will get you a color piece in your sketchbook. Obviously, I can't do these in advance, but preordering will get you to the "front of the line." What this means is your piece will take precedence over walk by traffic and you can usually get your sketchbook back in an hour.


Use the Contact Me page to set up your commission today. I accept Paypal.




Website revamp

As you might have noticed, my website got a bit of a polish. New features coming.


No San Diego Comic Con sketch sale!

Okay, for the first time since 1998, I won't be attending the San Diego Comic Con. It's become an increasingly tough show to do, so I'm bowing out this year. Repeat: I won't be there.

That said, I'm running a convention style sketch sale in the meantime. Its a great way to get an inexpensive piece of custom art.

So, starting now and ending at the end of Comic Con(the 15th), you can get a fully painted Distress Ink sketch from me.

head shot 9x12 $40

figure 9x12 $60

figure 11x17 $150

prices include shipping and will be shipped by Monday the 16th. If you're international, add $10.

Heroes Con 

In a rare east coast appearance, I'll be at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC June 21-24. 

I'm taking preorders now for full color Distress Ink paintings (examples in the image.)

Single character on watercolor paper, 9x12....$60 preorder/$100 at the show.

All preorders will be done in advance and available for pickup at the start of the show. Use the Contact Me to set up your commission. I accept Paypal. I recommend ordering in advance as I'm not sure how many slots i'll have open at the show as these pieces take a little bit of time to make. 

This also might be the last time to see me at a show for the year.

I'll also have prints, original pages (if you're looking for something specific, let me know ahead of time)

and some books for sale as well.

Come say hi! :)
