MAGNUS the robot fighter


The Trench is painted in mixed media.

Magnus the Robot Fighter measures at 34"X11". Someday I hope to produce 5 more of these drawings in which tell something of a story, and combine into a giant "comic page" with a narritive to hang on somebody's wall.

Next week...I post some samples of "Rodd Racer"...my next book following The Tourist.

Wow! I Love "The Trench"

I like that you can still see the sketch/line art underneath all that paint. Amazing!

thanks Kristen,
I love your work!

I use a technique of mixed media of several layers of transparent paint/opaque paint.
resulting in greater depth, and the ability to see under drawing where preferred.
