Napkin Art

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2013 by n8vandyke

The other day I went into one of my local watering holes and saw my buddy, Nick, sitting up at the bar. I pulled up a stool next to him and noticed that he was messing around with a napkin. At first I thought he was doing one of those stupid napkin roses to try and swoon a girl with but realized he was making a dragon head. We discussed it for a little while and I could quickly see exactly what he was doing and the anatomy within the head. I decided to take it home with me to draw and this is how it turned out…

Just a little head’s-up! Monday morning I am opening up my art sale that I’ve been mentioning for some time. I got the sketchbooks from the printers and they look great! REMEMBER… the only way you can get one of these 15 signed/numbered/custom illustration sketchbooks is by purchasing something from the art sale. It comes free with any one purchase big or small. It’s 40 pages full color and slammed full of goodies. Where else can you find a limited sketchbook like this with Smurfs, a Liger and a whole ton of other cool shit in it? Yeah… here. It’ll be a first come-first served art sale. E-mail me what you want, secure it with me and it’s all yours.

Jurassic Park: Redemption #5 in comic stores now

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2010 by n8vandyke


The fifth and final issue of my run on Jurassic Park came out today. In usual form I figured I’d post some of the pages from this issue in their black and white glory. I had highs and lows in working on the 110 pages for this comic run. All in all I am glad I did it but am also glad it’s over. Some pages came out better than others but that is just the way it goes. Not everything you do can be a work of art.

People have been asking me if I am going to do another run of comics. I’ve also been asked by people to do runs on other books. I have some possibilities in the works so time will tell if I give it another go anytime soon. I’ll be sure to post anything about future comic art right here along with all of the other crappy things I draw.

Jurassic Park #2 in comic book stores now

I just got back from the comic book store and saw that the second issue has come out. I’ve gotten some pretty good feedback on the art thus far so I figured I’d share some of the pre-colored pages here from this issue. It’s always great when the book or whatever print project it may be finally comes out in stores because I feel it marks the complete life cycle of the artwork. From thumbnails and drawings on my desk months earlier to the final product.

And, yes, I even got to draw a chimp in this issue.
