But garlic is just about the worst thing for a young vampire.


Baked clams on the boardwalk seem harmless enough.

More sketches from Asiago on the way.


I am snowed out of the library for gosh knows how long, so I won't be scanning anything new tonight. I swear I have lots of new sketches to show, but for now you'll have to put up with this older pen drawing. I traded the original to Ray Favata for some original Doug concept sketches.

I did this portrait of Nicholas about a month ago, but I thought it would be worthwhile to post again here. Plus, I couldn't get to the library scanners today. It's graphite on bristol board, and it took me a few solid hours to complete. Click to enlarge!

The reason I couldn't post yesterday:
In all seriousness, be on the lookout for Samuel Aaron Bennett's new short film, Who Is Ethan Jayne?, in which I may or may not be playing the role of a dead man.

As promised, here is some more from Asiago. If all goes according to plan, I'll do some color studies with these over the next couple days.

Splinters are just about the worst thing that can happen to a young vampire.

SIX - Happy Valentine's Day!

My mom asked me to be her valentine.

I'm calling this strange character "Henny" for now.

It's water-soluble ball-point pen ink with watercolor and graphite on top.

Vampires can't see themselves in the mirror. It's not a very helpful trait when one is trying on a new swimsuit.

P.S. Click to enlarge!

Welcome to my blog! Its specific purpose is very simple: it will host one drawing of mine everyday.

I'm posting during what I think is a very busy and exciting time. Followers will be seeing a good amount of concept art for a new children's book I wrote entitled Asiago. It's about a six year-old vampire, Asiago, and his not-so-great day at the beach. You can sort of imagine how the sunny circumstances wouldn't be ideal for such young vampire.

Horseshoe crabs are a new experience for him.
I promise this is not the last you'll see of young Asiago.
