tukroun•konman

tukroun•konman is one of the only personal pieces i got to create during 2017.  it was a busy year as i was working full-time in a studio gig.  even though i didn’t do much personal creation in 2017, this piece did get accepted into spectrum 25 - which will be published later this year!

the original artwork is also up in my store - here.  and, if you’re into that sort of thing, here’s a few links to some process work for the drawing and painting portions - behance / twitter / artstation / instagram

‘he who receiveth me…’

j.kobb has been aching for release for a while, now.  the black and white tonal study is complete… has been for a while, actually… for over a year.  the color is almost done, too.  don't worry, though.  it won't take another year.  he's coming soon.

Melankoliaholic

Losing weight and losing sleep… but, Melankolia is done.

“Melancholia was described as a distinct disease with particular mental and physical symptoms in the 5th and 4th centuries BC.  Hippocrates, in his Aphorisms, characterized all “fears and despondencies, if they last a long time” as being symptomatic of melancholia.  When a patient could not be cured of the disease it was thought that the melancholia was a result of demonic possession.” – Wikipedia

fuck yeah, \m/

Blood. Sweat. & More Blood.

2015 was loaded with freelance commercial work.  I had no time to really dig into my personal stuff.  2016 started off on the right foot... stump.

I finally got this one done.  It’s called Vox and was originally created as part of my friend Paul Richards’ Substrata project.  The image has been sitting around for about two years in various forms of b&w/color stages and I finally hit a tone, mood, and scheme I was happy with.  If you want to see more progress shots and WIPs of the image, check out the Behance page I made for this sucker - here.

The purveyor of denial, Railroad-Head Rex

"Bound to purvey the loathsome Edict of Denial | The Fear and Shame induced, to it’s face brought a smile"

On June 3rd, at 10.00AM Eastern Time (GMT -5.oo), my piece "Railroad-Head Rex" will go up for sale on EveryDayOriginal.com.  Thanks to illustrator & art director Marc Scheff for bringing me on board with EDO.  There's lots of great art from some great talent, there, of which I'm happy to be a part.

"Behold!  At what guilt hath created, may beholders gasp and ponder."

WIP it güd...

I normally have a lot of projects going on at once.  And, I usually post updates to those projects all over the place.  While this blog will serve to host the major updates to what I'm doing, you can find more work-in-progress shots on my Behance and Instagram pages.  On top of those accounts, I've got several other web-presences listed at the bottom of my site.

Here's a current WIP (clickthrough to Behance):
