Tommy, the White RangerAfter hearing of a supposed Power Rangers reboot, I’ve been wanting to do a piece on my favorite ranger as a kid, Tommy. I can only hope that we get a half-decent movie, but until then, here’s a poster design I thought up. This was a fun piece to work on and I’m tempted to do the rest of the rangers with their zords as well.

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor LegacyI’m a big fan of the original 3 Jak and Daxter games. Although I really enjoy the great work that Naughty Dog is doing nowadays, it’s their earlier games that hold a special place in my heart. If anything, I really wish they would go back and do another fun/cartoony platformer to maybe pay tribute to their roots. So, I put this faux-movie poster together for fun. I enjoyed painting this so much that, who knows, I might do one for Jak 2!* sorry this is a re-post I accidentally deleted the previous post :( *

Devastated to hear about Robin Williams. To this day, Aladdin is still one of my favorite films. So many of us grew up on his work whether it be through cartoons, his stand-up, and even his great dramatic acting roles. Very sad to hear he’s gone, but let us celebrate the things he did that made us smile. RIP

Quick lil’ doodle I did this morningIt’s safe to say I loved Guardians of the Galaxy and I’m sure I’m not alone in having the soundtrack stuck in my head since I walked out of the theater. I’ve practically been dancing everywhere I go to the tune of "Come and Get Your Love"I look forward to entire dance sessions with Guardians cosplayers at cons because you know that is going to be a regular thing now(if it isn’t, it should be. GET TO IT)

Chernabog has bars
Here’s a piece I designed specifically for my own phone case. Since I’ve finally given into getting a smart phone, I needed a case (because if I buy something expensive, chances are I’m going to drop it many times)
So, I thought, “why not design my own case?”
The idea of Chernabog texting on his own little smartphone came to mind and here’s the final product. I can’t wait for this to come in the mail and I figured I’d offer it on my online shop to anybody else who’d like to use it on their own phones or even purchase it as a print!
You can get one for yourself here!
