#Inktober- October 27th

For #inktober October 27th, I decided to pick on my friend, magician Jim Lenz. That's what one gets when they combine magic AND science.

Jim is a fantastic magician, performer, and all out funny guy, check him out at

#Inktober- October 26th

An #inktober drawing for October 26th. This Rum-runner got the seasonal shock of his life.

#Inktober- October 23rd

Late again! Here is my #inktober drawing from Friday, October 23rd. A nice, happy little Halloween Warlord. His head is supposed to be a weird looking pumpkin.

#Inktober- October 22nd

Finally a cute drawing. My Grandma was a very talented seamstress, and artist. So this #inktober piece for October 22nd is based on two yarn-made Halloween decorations she created and always had on display at her house when I was growing up.

#Inktober- October 21st

People hate when Orlok shows up at the Halloween parties. He always dominates at "bobbing for apples". My #inktober drawing for October 21st is also a tribute to what I think is the coolest looking vampire in motion picture history, from the 1922 silent film, "Nosferatu".

#Inktober- October 20th

Fitting for my October 20th #inktober image is a one day late birthday tribute to screen legend Bela Lugosi. Depicted here in the role of "Murder Legendre" in the 1932 horror film "White Zombie".

Happy Birthday Bela!

#Inktober- October 19th

Okay...slowly catching up. Here is my #inktober drawing for October 19th. Since my head was reeling from the incredible "FORCE AWAKENS" trailer and I also feel 8 years old again, I HAD to draw the new creepy baddie, Kylo Ren.

Here is an #inktober drawing for October 18th. I had to have at least one Frankenstein in here.

Catching up on #inktober from the weekend. Here is October 17th's drawing. A cuddly "Hugmonster".

#Inktober- October 16th

For my latest #inktober drawing I wanted to draw an Ogre. So why don't draw one inspired by the ogres in the game HEX: Shards of Fate from Cryptozoic Entertainment.

#Inktober- October 15th

An #inktober drawing for October 15th. A slightly un-storybook mermaid.

#Inktober- October 13th

My #inktober drawing for yesterday's October 13th. The "Roaring 20's" were a bit too "roaring" for this poor lady.

#Inktober- October 12th

My #inktober piece for October 12th. Monster scouts learning their merit badge in Jack-O'-Lantern carving.

#Inktober- October 11th

Here is my #inktober piece for October 11th. This is actually a "redraw" of a "Devil-a-saurus" I created for my dinosaur blog from years back. I always wanted to redraw him in my current style.

#Inktober- October 10th

Here is my #inktober piece for last Saturday, October 10th. I love drawing ugly buzzards.

#Inktober- October 9th

Okay...excuses, excuses...Here is my #inktober piece for last Friday. Something weird.

#Inktober- October 7th

October 7th, did not get a chance to scan on time last night so I'm posting my #inktober drawing today! This one is inspired by an old Halloween graphic I saw in a book.

#Inktober- October 5th

An #inktober entry made it just in time for my deadline goal! Halloween needs an iconic gift-giver as well. How about "Uncle Halloween". A jolly old fellow who visits once a year, leaving you gifts whether you like it or not.

#Inktober- October 4th

For October 4th's #inktober. Since it is football season and Sunday was a game day, I decided to draw Green Bay Packers offensive guard Josh Sitton. Josh has a cool viking/lumberjack look to him. This one I'll eventually colorize for my Packers series.

#Inktober- October 3rd

I failed to scan and post my #inktober drawings over the weekend, so I'm catching up! Here is an image that I hope captures the spirit of Halloween.

#Inktober- October 2nd

Even werewolves take their kids out trick-or-treating on Halloween. This one is a bit of a self-portrait.

#Inktober- October 1st

So excited that #Inktober is back! It's fun to stick to simple black and white images, as well as view all the incredible art from other illustrators throughout October. I'm hoping I can stay on track this year. Here is my first piece. Every creepy little kid needs a pet alligator.

S.W.E.F.S. Guest Illustration

Thanks so much Dirk E. Schulz for inviting me to create a guest illustration for his brilliant and surreal web comic "the S.W.E.F.S." I've been admiring Dirk's illustration since meeting him on Deviant Art several years back. If you want to view an AMAZING portfolio, check out what this German work horse can do. It's insane the amount of beautiful stuff this guy produces, also very intimidating and he makes me feel like a lazy slob. I think he's drawn pretty much every character known to man.

Chad Bukowski 1975-2015

Last Thursday I heard very sad, shocking, and unfortunate news that an old friend of mine passed away after a short battle with cancer. Chad Bukowski was a guy I had known since I was pre-school age. He was a big dude, about 6' 8" or 6' 9" I think. He was a very talented basketball player back in high school. One of the FUNNIEST guys I had ever known. We were very close friends in elementary school, and stayed friends into high school even though we did not see each other as much. I always loved when we had a class together because we were always laughing and drawing goofy pictures. He was a guy I always looked up to (also since he was almost a foot taller than me!) and I enjoyed being around him.
I greatly regret that we did not stay in touch after we graduated. We saw each other only a couple times since 1993, but it was only in passing. The last time being maybe 7 years ago or so, but I look at those short times fondly. I was so happy to later hear that he married another Ashwaubenon High School classmate of ours named Kelly Ford. Kelly was also a kind hearted person I always thought so highly of and I was happy to hear that they were a couple.
My heart goes out to Kelly, and their sons Collin and Cooper. I sadly could not be at his funeral today because I was out of town at an annual convention I attend. So as a tribute to Chad I created this illustration of him tonight as I best remembered him way back in high school.
Chad, THANK YOU for all the wonderful memories, I hope you know how much you meant to people, and that you will NEVER EVER be forgotten.
