Bethelda, the Goblin Witch


Meet Bethelda.   She likes mushrooms, fire, mud, and long walks in the woods.  Oh, and trout.  Her diet is 90% trout with mushrooms for dessert.  She was created from the churning cauldron that is Adobe Photoshop.  Hope you enjoy.

There Was A Crooked Man

There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.

He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.

He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,

And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

This is my illustration for this nursery rhyme. I wanted to do something moody and brooding.  I was greatly inspired by the work of Arthur Rackham.  He was a golden age illustrator and his illustrations for Alice in Wonderland were a big influence on this piece.  These images show an early stage of the piece and the final piece.

The first image shows my pen work on a toned ground that I digitally painted afterward.

Album artwork, photography, and design

New album artwork and design. The album is Timescape by Scott Flox.  I got to photograph him & his awesome studio, draw him, and design his album.  Quite a pleasure. Top row is the front and back of album.  Bottom two are the images on the inside left and right."Timescape" album cover design
