Darkest Dungeon fan art 2018
As a huge fan of Darkest Dungeon on iOS, I decided to try out a grayscale painting on Procreate on the iPad Pro for a sense of mood. And besides, the Plague Doctor and the Leper Knights are characters I’ve enjoyed using in the game with their sense of dramatic design and behavior. Using Procreate as one of my favorite apps to work with, it took some getting used to with the new brush system compared to an actual brush on canvas.

A personal project of a two panel piece of my memory of 1979 and how it connects with my creative endeavors, but also as a deaf person in ways that the visual overload of Bat Out Of Hell dwarved me to the point of being awed and inspired. The original image is actually much larger than it's seen here with being 11 by 17 inches for a 'cinematic' experience. It was illustrated entirely on Manga Studio software.
Illustration of " Deus Epee " which is a fictional patron god of rapier or epee, my weapon of choice in fencing.
Illustration of " Tenebrarum Domina Luporum " inspired by Toxic Vision, ultimately being created on Manga Studio as a final result. The print can be bought at my Society6 store.

VFA Shirt 2018
Fencing t-shirt design done on iPad Pro with Procreate and exported to Adobe Illustrator for the finalization process, inspired by the art nouveau period. This one is for the 25th anniversary March event of 2018.
VFA Shirt 2015
This shirt illustration was done in black and white entirely using Manga Studio and Adobe Illustrator CS5 for the Vermont Fencing Alliance's annual tournament.
It took about a week or so to finish it after some feedback and deciding on a green shirt as background color which led to a need for a transparent effect around the composition. But also inspired by the Game of Thrones concept as a theme but instead using a stone carved seating.

VFA Shirt 2015 Photo
This is the actual shirt based on the image I created. It was tricky to convert all the line art from Manga Studio into vector paths in Illustrator but I was amazed the print shop was able to pull it off, even though it was entirely in 600 DPI as I was trying to have more contrast to the image to stand out from the green background.

The actual photo of the shirt design I did in 2013 for the Vermont Fencing Alliance.
VFA Shirt 2011
This is the 2011 edition of the t-shirt I designed for the annual event. I took a minimalist approach this time around inspired by a bit of Saul Bass and the infamous Kubrick's "Barry Lyndon" (1975) film poster.

This was originally posted on Instagram in October 2018 done on Sketchbook app on iPad Pro to experiment with a slightly wet brush.
Serpent Inktober 2018
This was done on a ‘serpent’ theme and I decided to go with a giant constrictor surrounding a mysterious house illuminated by a full moon done on Procreate.
Inktober Owl 2018
The Inktober theme was ‘owl’ and considering that I’m a huge fan of the show “Millennium” from the late 1990s, the ourobouros with the owl’s tilted head while perched atop a skull made such a creepy effect which worked out nicely.
Vampire Inktober 2018
The Inktober, or Mabs Drawlloween Club, theme was Vampire. The fan art of Barnabas from Dark Shadows was something I’ve wanted to do for some time. This was done on Procreate on iPad Pro.
Inktober Masoleum 2018
Old school approach on my moleskine sketchbook with an Ooly pen. One can see the trail of blood leading up to the dark doorway with beady eyes looking back.
This gallery showcases the most recent airbrushed work done in the past year of 2017-2018 as I’ve recently returned to this medium due to the opportunities provided in my fencing life to experiment and also beyond.
Oni style fencing mask
This was airbrushed in the spring of 2018 with the classic original iwata HP-C which I’ve owned since the 1990s that I revived with a brand new air compressor. I decided to use my old Leon Paul fencing mask, inspired by the japanese oni demon mask to reveal mostly my eyes and covering the mouth.

In 2017, a local SCA ( society for creative anachronism ) fencer I’ve been friends with for several years now have privately commissioned me to airbrush his custom designed draco-lion based on a crest of his creation. Since this was his HEMA-based mask, I had to work out all sides and the back flap to utilize the scales, all entirely in black and white.
This was the first time I’ve returned to airbrushing after many years, requiring me to get new paint from Createx to reconstruct my airbrushing set up.
