Joint Force Headquarters

Here is an Architectural rendering of the New Joint force Headquarters of the Massachusetts National Guard. This was created as part of a special project. It was originally sketched in pen and ink, with watercolor washes completed in Corel Painter. Printed on recycled paper and touched up with colored pencils for extra ‘pop.’

Portrait Complete and part two of the video

Part two of the portrait. in this video you can see the actual drawing process, sped up of course.

Commemorative Portrait – “Giovanna” Part One

Part one of a commemorative portrait I’m doing of my mother. In this video I go over the steps to prepare my drawing surface. This includes the tools and the techniques used to create the monochromatic color ground used in the push/pull method of drawing.

Illustration Friday – Haunt

Beware, spooky undead creatures haunt the bogs and hallows this Halloween. This is a piece I did to kick off the 3rd season of  “The Walking Dead.” This Illustration  started with a traditional pencil sketch and was completed in Corel Painter.

Illustration Friday – Lost

History merely states Nigel Cornbloom’s expedition was lost in Central America. Though many theories abound, no one truly knows his fate.

Illustration Friday – Hurry

People in a hurry can look to fast food to fulfill the need for sustenance. Created in Corel Painter from a traditional sketch for a client. I removed the client’s logo and replaced it with the word fast for the purpose of submitting to IF.

Sun Bears are coming!!!

Here is a piece I did for the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk. A Pen and Ink with watercolor sign highlighting 
the exhibit changes expected this year.  The client was very thoughtful and sent the finished product without a request from me. It’s always a pleasure working with people who appreciate the efforts of others.

Mass Guard website places second in NGB media awards

Shortly after my deployment to Iraq I was asked to develop the website for the Massachusetts National Guard. For the last four years I have managed and maintained the site. Posting well over 450 separate stories and videos. This year our organization submitted the site for consideration in the National Guard Bureau Media Awards. Our site came in second only behind a state that had their site outsourced to a development company. Not too shabby for an all guard designed and managed website. I would be remiss in not thanking the folks at NGB and GKO for our hosting and technical support.

Suicide Prevention Poster

Here is the new poster I created as part of the Massachusetts National Guard’s Suicide awareness campaign. The hands were shot in the DA photo studio on a green screen and a background was placed in after.

Here is the original photo.
