NintendoVideogame Magic by thelearningcurv
NintendoVideogame Magic
Those who are attracted to my work at comic con's have been enjoying my cartoony work. I've been trying to figure out how to mix my love for comics and cartoons and a Nintendo drawing came to mind. I've wanted to draw several of these characters independently and creating this layout was the best way for me to enjoy this project. I drew each character individually and had some fun laying them out to create this composition.

The death of Satoru Iwata, the president of Nintendo and employee of the company since 2000 was a surprise. I finished this a few days after he had passed and I'd like to give my condolences to his family, friends, and all affected by his passing. I post this image in celebration of him and this amazing company that has brought so much joy to me, my family and to everyone Nintendo touches!

Mouseguard, Baltimore Comic Con Yearbook by thelearningcurv
Mouseguard, Baltimore Comic Con Yearbook
Baltimore Comic Con does a YearBook that spotlights a creater owned property and this year focused on Mouseguard. I was able to be a part of this yearbook in 2015 and these are the inks for that piece. I designed the art so it could possibly be a cover for the book (since it's published in a square format) and also so that it could work vertically if desired. Since I knew the book would produce the art in a vertical way, I made sure the art worked in that way as well. This was one of the funnest projects I've ever worked on!

Spiderverse Pencils by thelearningcurv
Spiderverse Pencils
At one time, I created a new Spider-Man illustration once a year and enjoyed using the cityscapes of NYC to practice my anatomy and background creation. I haven't done one since 2012 but was compelled to start one with the creation of the Spiderverse! I've enjoyed laying out these guys and I'll be using a Times Square background as the scene they inhabit. I love living in NYC and will be going on site to photograph the scene soon.

Happy New Years folks, thanks for continuing on the journey with me. 2016 will be bringing a lot of big things!!!

A Reason to Smile Cover by thelearningcurv
My kickstarter campaign was extremely successful and I now have my very own book that I have written and illustrated called "A Reason to Smile!" I have been on this site for 7 years and have learned a great deal which is part of why I am now a self published author and illustrator and love to be able to get a copy of the book into your hands.

The book is 8.5x8.5 and is available both as a softcover and a hardcover. The softcover has 44 pages of story and art based in NYC about a little girl who is a walking silver lining. She loves to people watch and gets a chance to do a lot of that in the Big Apple. Occasionally, she gets a chance to help people, and though the problems don't go away, they find an easier way to manage the problems. 

The book also comes as a hardcover with 16 extra pages that include: behind the scenes information about the kickstarter and promotion, extra story and art based on the original story, written by me and illustrated by me and 5 other artists.  
Those artists include :iconkharyrandolph:, :iconpaigey::iconnicolasrgiacondino:, :iconsimpsonscameos: & :iconmini-sys:

Check out the kickstarter at www.kickstarter.com/projects/9…;
Check out the progress at instagram.com/thelearningcurv

gotta love creating art of any kind=]

I mostly create comic book styled art with the various ventures into the realm of fine art. I have been attending comic book conventions for the past 4 years and am currently working on a children's book. I do custom illustrations as well as pencil and ink commissions.

Feel free to send me a note or e-mail me for any questions=]
