It's ME! Dr. Luigi! by thelearningcurv
It's ME! Dr. Luigi!

I've loved watching the Dr. Who television show ever since I got a chance to see it on Netflicks and am have found the show to be quite endearing. They say your first doctor becomes your favorite and the 9th is definitely mine. I have absolutely loved the history and entertainment that can be seen in the show and expect it to continue to be a great show that is broadcasted for generations to come.


I have also always loved the Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo gaming system. I have only recently been able to afford getting a WiiU and haven't gotten to play a Mario game since the old Super Nintendo system. Yea, it's been a while.


The more I would watch the Doctor and the more I played Mario, then more I started seeing the connection between the two.  The episode where the Weeping Angels surrounded the Tardis and as it escaped, had them locked in seeing each other, I realized that the Angels and the Boo's were the same. From then on, I made it my business to find the other connections.  In my illustration above, the Goomba's are the Sontaran's, the Mushrooms are the Adipose, the Shy Guy is the Empty Child, the Bloopers are the Ood, the Koopa Troopers are Cybermen, and the Buzzy Beetle are the Daleks. I even made sure King Koopa made an appearance as the Satan Demon. I debated putting Mario in a roman costume since he is suppose to be Rory, but I wanted to keep something authentically Mario, as well as keeping Princess Toadstood's hair color blond, even though she's suppose to be Amy Pond...I did make a pipe the Tardis, and Luigi as the Matt Smith Doctor because of their physical similarities. Luigi doesn't get enough love so I was happy to give him the staring role in my illustration!


If you would like a copy of this illustration to hang on your wall or give to your friend, email me at:

and well find a way to make that happen!


Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the process!

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:

I finally got a WiiU and I am a lot happier for it. I forgot that getting to play a new SuperMarioBros game was crazy fun, and it helped spark some creativity for me. Watching Dr. Who, being at the convention scene and then seeing the Boo's attack made me think of my favorite assassins, the Weeping Angels. The comparison to me was genius so I tried to find other similar comparisons and came up with this drawing. I'll post the inks and colors soon. This image will be ready for you to see at NYCC, so if you're going to be at the show, come see me at table W2 in Artist Alley=] I've got a lot of new artwork for you to see!

Guardians of the Galaxy Upper Deck Sketch Cards by thelearningcurv
Guardians of the Galaxy Upper Deck Sketch Cards
I was fortunate enough to be a part of the Guardians of the Galaxy Upper Deck  Sketch Card event and got to do some official Marvel Comics licensed art. I never thought I'd be paid to draw some of my favorite characters from my childhood and here we have them, completely hand colored, by me=] Who was your favorite before the craze happened?  Is that character still your favorite?  

I do have 2 vertical and 1 horizontal AP blank sketch card if you would like a custom drawn card for $50 [shipping included ;-)] and I take payment via paypal using my email address (thelearningcurv@gmail.com).

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=]
