Father. Husband. Son. Brother. Kid from the East San Fernando Valley becomes comic book creator, novelist, concept artist, storyboard artist, instructor, worshiper of classic Spielberg and Lucas, fanatic of all things dinosauria, Los Angeles sports teams fan, enjoyer of tacos up and down the West Coast, Kurosawa and Hitchcock sycophant, driver of fast European cars, inherent resister of authority, and graduate of Art Center College of Design.
I made the mistake of scanning in the sketch before I began to color this, and the piece suffers for it, but it works well enough. The preproduction time on this did not really allow for more than quick colored sketches, and the result is even more of a mediocrity than my art usually lowers itself to. The late Jean Giraud, AKA Moebius, was such an influence over me, and I feel like he's one of my artistic fathers, if that makes any sense, but the difference is that he was a genius and I'm a clown.
Note the Art Noveau influence here again, as well as my incompetence.
