Hey doods,

Don’t have much to say right now, just trying to get back in the habit of updating this site. Most of what I’ve been showing has been tossed up on instagram (, Tumblr (, Twitter (, and of course, Facebook ( Be sure to follow if you can. I would mad love you.

I’m still plugging away on TMNT character designs. I’m neck deep in season 3, and my 3 year anniversary is coming up in about a month. How the time, she flies. Anyway, I thought I’d share this little drawing with you. It’s from the Operation: Break Out episode of season 01 (episode 124). Mikey had a dream that he and Donnie were Rodeo Detectives. Some True Detective type shit right there, flat circle and all. It was really great to be able to draw these fools in my style. It’s such an honor to get to work on this show, but to see some straight up Jose G TMNT art on the tv screen damn near tore my head apart.

Hope all is well out there in webworld. I’ll try to stay more up to date, even if it’s brief and I’m just dropping sketches/doodles.

I did this T-shirt design about 2 months ago for homies Maker and Qwel, who are on tour promoting their new album, OWL.

If they come to your town, check them out. They put on a hell of a show. Buy a T-shirt, too. And check out OWL.

This was supposed to be my portion of  the 2007 Chicago Funk Jam flyer. I just wasn’t feeling this image at the time.

I ended up going with the drawing below

which I love and got good response on Myspace and Facebook.
Anyway, I came across that original drawing during my move, and think that I can tweak it and color it up into something nice.
Just wanted to share. I’ll post it if I do decide to do it up something proper.
