Hey guys, it's workshop time!

Massive Black, SixMoreVodka, Safehouse Atelier, and SteamBot Studios along with a bunch of other artists are having an art workshop in San Francisco in November.  The workshop is geared at both beginner and professional artists in the entertainment, film, game, comics, illustration, and fine art industries. 

Some of the projects that these individuals have worked on off of the top of my head include X-Men, Tron, Assassin's Creed, Skyrim, Guild Wars 1 & 2, Magic the Gathering, Transformers 1 2 3, Left 4 Dead 2, DOTA 2, Red Dead Redemption, StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, and much more.

I will be doing live demos, lecturing, and doing portfolio reviews at the workshop.  Availability is limited, and there is also an Early Bird Special, so if you are interested, you should grab a ticket while they are still available - November is just around the corner.  Hopefully I will see some of you guys there!

Here's the official page for more info:


Coke Super Bowl Commercial

Here is an update on some of the entertainment art I did a while back for Coke's Super Bowl commercial featuring orcs and dragons.  I did some key art showing the horde of orcs and their dragon, but I didn't design the "good guy" creatures.  This was a pretty fun project :)

You can check out the commercial HERE

This was an alternate payoff to the dragon drinking Coke
