To all of my followers from ‘murica, Happy 4th of July. Celebrate the parts of being a citizen of this country you like with a bunch of weird characters I made! You can see even more, along with concept art with them here. To all of my non-USA citizens…uh…I dunno. Have a nice day?

Two of my friends got married a few weeks ago. They both love cats, so naturally, I drew them as their spirit cats getting married.
Ahhh the beauty of holy meowtrimony.

I did a painting for the amazing Laura Birdsall whose work can be found here. It’s but a small part of a charming, beautiful series of paintings that she did most of, all of which can be seen on her blog. I’ll let you guys figure out the subject matter…

I liked some of the characters from my senior thesis/last summer illustrations, so I decided to draw/slightly change some of them without the insanity going on behind them.

My Mom’s been watching Breaking Bad recently. This morning, while I was working on this Mother’s Day picture for her, she called me and said “Time for breakfast, BITCH.” Needless to say, best Mom 2014. Best Mom always.

Happy Mother’s day/birthday drawing!!! She’s the best Mom ever 2014 award winner. As she affectionately says, “Between you and your father, it’s like I have 6 children.” Love you too Mom. Love you too.

Congratulations Loocem! You won the request contest. It was fun trying to visualize your request, especially since I initially thought the sheriff was supposed to be a cowboy. Now he’s a shark.

Art has historically been inspired by intense feelings. Love, passion, beauty, and pain. I want to follow in these great footsteps.
That’s why I drew a (self-inspired) nerd, flipping his desk over because he lost a fictional computer game.

Request contest 2 edit

Instead of sending your requests as asks, like or reblog this post. Each note counts as an entry into the random selection. The deadline is still March 27. Once you’re picked, I’ll ask you what it is you’d like me to draw.

Since the last request contest produced some really interesting results, lets have another go at it. Send me an ask. I’ll leave it open for a week which means next Thursday, March 27, is the last day you can request something.

Old Stuff Tom Did Not Actually Too Long Ago

About four years ago I thought it would be cool to show my professors that I was a really deep and artistic person so I glued foam-core together and played with legos on camera.

I’m a little late to the fan-art bandwagon for this show, but Breaking Bad is right up there with the Sopranos in terms of how realistically it handled it’s original subject matter and the level of quality on literally everything… music, camerawork, writing, acting…everything. Glad it ended and didn’t get stretched into something boring. Watch it. No questions. Just do it. Already seen it? Watch it again.
