Idylls of Love

August 2, 2018 at 4:53 pm

One of the most transformative, enlightening books I’ve read this year: Man’s Search for Meaning.

August 2, 2018 at 4:42 pm

So proud of the rock studies everybody’s been doing in Art Camp. Love seeing things click for people.

August 2, 2018 at 3:42 pm

I have the best wife.

August 1, 2018 at 7:48 pm

One of the best campsites I’ve ever gotten to enjoy.

Not unrelated: there’s no internet connection there.

August 1, 2018 at 4:50 pm

Creators Chat #6, on establishing healthy, productive work/life balance:

August 1, 2018 at 4:22 pm

One last time: struggle is not suffering. It’s working hard.

You really think I’d be advocating suffering while I’m sitting in Hawaii? Come on.

August 1, 2018 at 4:05 pm

It’s pathetic that it’s somehow a controversial opinion to encourage hard work.

August 1, 2018 at 3:31 pm

The literal first definition of the word “struggle”: to work hard to do something.

I don’t give a shit if you want to misinterpret that into misery or depression or whatever. You’re wrong.

July 31, 2018 at 1:35 pm

Hard work is good.

Breaks are great, but struggle creates true, lasting, meaningful fulfillment.

July 28, 2018 at 10:32 pm

Beach camping with the ever-gorgeous @ImRachelBradley

July 28, 2018 at 12:53 pm

I’m gonna be at #GPRichmond next month so come on by and get stuff signed and say hi.

July 26, 2018 at 9:10 pm

1. Get pretty good at art.

2. Find an awesome, hot wife.

3. ???

July 26, 2018 at 12:29 am

Honeymoon with my honey.

To Feel the Edge of Heaven

July 23, 2018 at 10:53 am

Their Mournful Tones

July 23, 2018 at 10:18 am

In writing a book of advice I struggle not to repeat this too often: just get on with it already.

July 23, 2018 at 7:39 am

Anyone interested in a non-Magic original piece? I have a Tarzan piece, 20×30″, oils on board. Shoot me an offer at if you are. Looking for about $2k for it.

July 22, 2018 at 4:49 pm

Masculinity is not toxic. Feminity is not shameful.

July 22, 2018 at 2:30 pm

Lazy Sunday experiments.

Our Grasp of Heaven

July 21, 2018 at 9:26 am

Accepting personal responsibility is the first step toward power.

History of Benalia

July 20, 2018 at 6:42 pm

Maybe being happy and treating people well will have more impact than your Twitter rants and retweets.

July 17, 2018 at 5:43 pm

On the back of a History of Benalia artist proof. Wanted to do some trippy stained glass.

July 17, 2018 at 4:10 pm

So I now have at least 4 new Magic oil paintings I’ll be showing off next year. 🙂

July 17, 2018 at 2:00 pm

I don’t get nearly enough opportunities to sketch without expectations. So I thought today would be a good day to do just that.

July 17, 2018 at 9:09 am

Sketch on the back of a Breeding Pool proof.

July 17, 2018 at 6:22 am

Episode 6 of is now up. We talk all about work/life balance:

July 15, 2018 at 8:54 am

Thanks for all of the good history/biography suggestions yesterday. I think those will keep me busy for a good while.

July 14, 2018 at 1:03 pm

Do you have a favorite biographical or historical book?

July 12, 2018 at 11:50 am

When you start to think of it, any day that you aren’t being chlorine gassed is really a quite good day.

July 12, 2018 at 11:01 am

Remedying my shameful ignorance of WWI while finishing this painting by listening to A World Undone. Giving me a greater appreciation for what folks went through back then.

July 12, 2018 at 8:34 am

Get to work.

July 12, 2018 at 6:41 am

Maybe whinging doesn’t actually improve your situation.

July 11, 2018 at 2:44 pm

Did a live Creators Chat with @ImRachelBradley just now:

July 11, 2018 at 1:20 pm

Art Camp students are great. 🙂

July 10, 2018 at 11:46 am

Alternate sketch for my Volcanic Island

July 10, 2018 at 11:38 am

Expectation is the invitation to disappointment.

The Last Whisper

July 7, 2018 at 1:03 pm

A quick video of a landscape value study for Art Camp 3. Painting took about 40~ minutes.

July 7, 2018 at 12:30 pm

Taking a break from working on Magic stuff to record a little value study for Art Camp folks.

July 7, 2018 at 10:46 am

I think people would be a lot happier if they focused a little more on being human.

July 6, 2018 at 1:53 pm

Listening to a biography on Leonardo is making me feel like I’m incredibly good at completing things.

July 6, 2018 at 11:46 am

Forgotten Cave. Looking to sell this. Oils on canvas, taking offers at

Thanks to everyone who joined in and asked questions and hung out. 🙂

July 4, 2018 at 12:10 pm

Thanks to everyone who joined our stream. <3 You can (re)watch the whole stream here:

July 4, 2018 at 12:03 pm

No, your art doesn’t deserve attention. You have to earn that.

July 4, 2018 at 11:02 am

Still live with @ImRachelBradley, doing sketches and talking about art stuff. Come hang out with us.

July 4, 2018 at 10:02 am

Your style is not the reason your art isn’t better. Your lack of fundamental understanding is.

July 3, 2018 at 6:54 am

Every color you need for a good painting.

July 2, 2018 at 5:38 pm

Success is not universally defined. Success is something you define for yourself. Success is what you want it to be.

Working on a contender for the new most-epic-painting I’ve done for Magic. Both in its subject and execution.

“Style” is just the way you tend to do things.

July 2, 2018 at 10:59 am

July 2, 2018 at 9:50 am

Hey artists that do a lot of gold leaf work: What should I buy to get started? Is it ok to use in conjunction with oils? What are your best tips?

I wanna experiment.

July 2, 2018 at 8:57 am

Listen to episode #3 of now on iTunes:

Escaped civilization for a bit this weekend with @ImRachelBradley

Yes, life is good.

I think @ImRachelBradley and I are just gonna live in a tent here forever. Later, y’all.

June 29, 2018 at 1:16 pm

The greatest fanart I’ve ever seen of my work.

Into the Fire

Painted for Art Camp 3: Landscapes

June 28, 2018 at 6:51 am

Stumbled on this gem the other day and I wanted to share. Worked so hard on this and was so proud of it.

From about 2009.
