Lightbulb Zombie at the Gate

Pen on paper, color-tint in Adobe Photoshop ~ 65 minutes


Hit the lights. Somethings moving out there...


MAXIMILLIAN RILKE holds his breath. His brother GREGOR RILKE stands at his side, listening. They stare into the darkness beyond the doorway and hear night sounds. Maximilian is loosely gripping a shotgun by the base of its barrel, the stock resting on his hip.


It’s nothing. We should...


Hush. Listen again.

Maximilian shifts his feet in the snow, getting cold. Being a good brother, he closes his eyes and listens. His eyes pop open at a sharp sound from nearby, like paper being torn from a book. He licks his lips and slowly unhinges the shotgun barrell, exposing the chamber. Reaching into his coat pocket for shells, he feels his brother’s hand on his arm.


Too late for that.

Gregor nods into the darkness. Maximilian squints his eyes and sees a splash of light on the old Model-T next to the barn. It grows, and with it a look of dread darkens Maximilian’s face.

Daily Sketch – April 22nd – May 5th, 2011

FIRST MOLESKINE FULL! Yep this is the last page / last image for the first of what I hope are many more Moleskine sketchbooks to come. As it was the last image in the book, I was already working out of a new sketchpad, and so had to remember to go back and finish this one later. Similar to both the April 12th and April 15th sketches. ~80 minutes

Daily Sketch – April 15th, 2011

I liked Tuesday’s (April 12th) sketch enough to try another in that same style. Didn’t turn out as good but I like the bandages and the ridiculous ‘brain replacement’ attachment on the head. I struggled with this one a bit ~ 100 minutes

Daily Sketch – April 12th, 2011

I like this one – it has the more theatrical presentation and narrative-based feeling that I’m shooting for. ~ 60 minutes

Daily Sketch – April 5th, 2011

Yeesh, awful. I tried using pen and ink today and it did not go well. I considered not showing this one. You are welcome. ~30 minutes

Daily Sketch – March 18th, 2011

I get a huge kick out of line art, and for that reason mummies are one of my favorite things to draw. This was completed with a Staedtler pigment liner pen (0.7) for the dark lines / values, a Pigma Micron pen (0.1) for the fine lines, and my ever-present Prismacolor Premier marker (cool gray 30%).

Older mummy drawing – 2009?

Mummy man test. Awesome band name. I drew this in 2009 and it remains one of my favorites.
