The Hulk

A few years ago, before Ang Lee's The Hulk debuted in theaters to dumbounded fans nationwide, I had the pleasure of working on some of the merchandise for the film. I had a really great time dreaming up situations where we could have the Hulk destroying all manner of property. In this design, Hulk SMASH puny Hum-Vee into a small waffle of Detroit armoured steel.

A small touch of color to help distinguish the planes.

After the design was finalized, we sent our sketch over to the extremely talented folks at the Jim Roger's Studios. They were incredible to work with! Having worked with sculptors overseas who are perported to be cheaper, I found that using Jim's studio was a fanatstic investment of time and value. He and his team were able to solve many of the problems inherent in the initial drawing. Yes, I will admit that there were some "problems" with the concept sketch. Nonetheless, the final product was far superior to anything we ever had made overseas.

Three Gals Work In Progress

Unrequited love is the bane of adolescence. Still, there is a bit of magic when you first lay your eyes on the "one". Here, these Three Gals are spying Mister Right.

I love to experiment with varying my painting techniques. In this color sketch WIP, I am trying to learn the deft simplicity with which Florian Satzinger creates his imaginative work. I am really love his animated style.

Got a Biscuit in Your Pocket?

This guy could use something tasty for a treat. Chances are, if you don't have something handy, he will help himself to whomever is around!

Imagine a wild herd of these Gorillataurus rampaging through the plains on the edges of the ancient forests. This would be a mighty foe that you could not outrun nor escape up a tree.


Conflict resolution seems to be one of Tarzan's strong suits. When in doubt, go for it.
