TIE Fighter Mighty Mugg

A bunch of us from Lucas made a series of custom Star Wars Mighty Muggs for the Make-A-Wish Foundation Auction. I decided to make the little dude into a Tie Fighter :) The wings were sculpted out of Magic Sculpt then attatched with a drill through the head, added some paint and then voilĂ !

They will be on display at Comicon so if your attending please keep an eye out!

When Lawn Gnomes Attack

So here is this week's challenge: "When Lawn Gnomes Attack". I wanted to portray a serene suburbia scene where an angry lawn gnome got his revenge on pink flamingos. It was a fun quick piece out of my comfort zone which felt refreshing. Stay tuned for next week's challenge: "Prehistoric Time Travel".

Microcosm Challenge

For this week's challenge, we went with "Microcosm" - a minature/microscopic civilization. I decided to try a more photo-based concept this time by inserting this bio-mech bug city in a photograph I took by the Palace of Fine Arts here in San Francisco. The bug was modeled and rendered in 3dsmax with a little help from zbrush. The comp and DOF work were done with photoshop and DOF generator Pro. Next week's assignment is "When Lawn Gnomes attack".

Scrap Scraper challenge

Some friends and I are starting weekly challenges in order to do more personal work. This week's challenge was to illustrate a Scrap Scaper... a city, structure or colony made entirely of scraps. Next week's challenge is going to be "Micro Blvd."

Garbage dump Photography

These were taken a while back during a Lucas trip to a garbage dump for texture reference. I finally got around to processing some of these ugly beasts.

Sudden Life WIP

I've been brewing on this idea for a long time... A sudden explosion of plant life through a street, plowing through a truck. The original idea came from a good friend Mike Bear. I'm not happy with this one very much so expect future versions of this illustration.

Lost Trinity

An older render from 2006, but definitely representative of where I want to take my personal work for the future.

Some concepts

Here's some more older concept work I did for last year

So I'm slightly conflicted about my photography.. I have flickr, facebook, picassa,, and 100's of other accounts to distribute photos with... So I'll save my blog for my more "artsy" ones I suppose.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed work

Since the game is out, here are a few screen shots of the environments I built/helped built for the game. I'll add some screen shots of the cinematics as well

Digimattes from SCAD

Here are few digimattes from back in the day at SCAD. I have a feeling I'll be doing more of these in the future.

Apple Street

Well I finally decided to try this art blog thing out in an attempt to do new personal work! So until then, here's some older work.
