The Eyes

The Eyes


This is my attempt at photo manipulation. Its a picture of my wife’s eyes, as a character from Darker Than Black, Uina.

Afro Girl ReRemix

Afro Girl ReRemix


I was invited to a hip hop battle in Miami by We Merge to do some live art. I thought it was time to bring back my Afro Girl 2. Everyone liked it digitally so I decided to do it Traditionally. This is done in pastels. ( I will upload a better picture soon )

Jermbo Sketch Color

Jermbo Sketch Color


Well, I decided to take a break from working this weekend and actually use my new cintiq. This is the result of about an hour and a half of trying a new surface and program. I have a lot to learn about Painter but it shows a lot of potential.

Speak Free

Speak Free


I was invited by WeMerge Magazine, a local south Florida arts magazine, to do a live art exhibition. I worked on a sketch for about a week and decided to paint this live with pastels. I really like the way it came out, I just might do it again…

Graceful Hair

Graceful Hair


My buddies and I went down to a huge art festival in Miami, and a buddies buddy was showing his work. So we went down and got the VIP treatment, and hung out in the back with the other artist exhibiting, and for some strange reason I really wanted to draw. This is what came out.

Snuggles

Snuggles


HAHAHA.. I don’t want to know what I was thinking when I drew this. The weirder part was this was a request for a tattoo. The dude actually got it tattooed on him, I guess that doesn’t surprise me. I have seen some weird tattoos.

She Devil

She Devil


She is hot. I really got to learn to do faces well. But I think this piece has a certian something with out a face. This was done shortly after My Vector Goddess piece. I think I found a new friend in Illustrator.

Shark Bite

Shark Bite


I would like to get better at portraits, so who better to try on then my nephew. I think a young boy needs a good nick name, I dub the Shark Bite.. I have spoken.

Ribbon Hero

Ribbon Hero


Here is one of my famous under developed thoughts. I tend to do that a lot. I have a great idea, I start working on it, then I fizzle out and eventually give up on it. I am putting this up in hopes to re-inspire me to start / finish this piece. Lets see what happens.

My Vector Goddess

My Vector Goddess


This was a first for me. I have been using Illustrator for a while now, but I have not really used it for art. Its mainly been for commercial work, ie. logos, icons, text etc. But with the sketch looking so good i needed to try a new technique. And thus my vector art is born.

My Goddess

My Goddess


Man I really love this piece. At the time of this pieces creation, I was doing some reading on other religions and Hinduism really caught my eye. This piece has a lot of symbolism in this. Can you see them all?

Jermbot

Jermbot


Some graffiti character of mine that I named after me. I should really do something with this guy.. oh the possibilities.

Hands Of Creation

Hands Of Creation


This is a piece like my Death piece. I was reluctant to use any type of what I called “help”. But it turned out that a little reference can take you a very long way. And after talking to other artist, its completely acceptable. phew

Death

Death


Ok this is another one of those pieces that helped me understand what I am capable of. There was one point when I was trying to do everything from my head. I thought that I wasn’t an artist if I couldn’t create everything out of my head. Then I had a thought, if I have never seen this pose before or thing before, how can I expect me to draw it. So this was my first piece with a reference photo for the model.

Big Hug

Big Hug


Well I don’t know what to say about this. This was for my 4 year old niece. She loved it and that makes me happy.

Angel Tattoo Sketch

Angel Tattoo Sketch


This is a sketch requested by a friend as a possible tattoo. I really like this piece because it pushed my abilities and creativity a little bit. I know it might not look like it but I was going through a dry spell and this helped me get out of it.

Afro Girl 3 Colored

Afro Girl 3 Colored


Sorry but not much to say about this one. This officially completes my first series. This was some more wacom and photoshop awesomeness. But now on to other bigger things!

Afro Girl 2 Colored

Afro Girl 2 Colored


This is the second thing to come out of my newly discovered wacom table. Oh how I love you wacom and photoshop. You are my new best friends!

Afro Girl 1 Colored

Afro Girl 1 Colored


Well this is the result of trying something new. I had just received my wacom and this is the first piece to come out of that. I am really impressed, and I plan to do this for a long time.

Afro Girl 3

Afro Girl 3


There are other Afro Girls that I have drawn, but this marks the last in the series. I didn’t pay to much attention to the sketch because I had recently discovered the wacom tablet. And I really liked it! So Afro Girl Number 3 everybody.

Afro Girl 2

Afro Girl 2


This is the second piece in my Afro Girl collection. I think this one represents a leap forward in my art. Before this there was something missing, and this filled the gap. Now that my expectations are set a little higher, I can only do better.

Afro Girl 1

Afro Girl 1


This is my first piece of my first series. I call them “The Afro Girls”. This one is Afro Girl Number 1. Not because I like this one more than the others, but because it was the first.

Punk Rocker

Punk Rocker


This is a character of mine. I haven’t really given him a name other than “Punk Rocker”. This guy started out on a white board at work, then I decided to put it on paper, and here you go. Traditional pencil and color pencils to get this piece done.

Vector Love

Vector Love


This is an anniversary gift for my fiancee. Her old roommate took some pictures and we really liked this one. I decided to create this in vector format, using Adobe Illustrator.

Kaylee’s Sketch

Kaylee’s Sketch


This is a sketch of a friends niece. A gift for his mother. They both are sick and not doing very well so my hope is to bring a little bit of joy in a very rough situation. Andrew, my heart goes out to your family.
