Alberto Ruiz & Bobby Chiu Join Forces



Bobby and I are collaborating on an illustration for his new book: 'Ancient Japanese Sketches' Coming in December, in actuality, it's more like he's doing all the hard work, since this was an image I drew (and posted) a while ago. As the charming Alina Chau would say: "Bobby's work is Awesome & Cool!"

Bobby hails from Toronto, where he lives and works, he teaches digital painting at Sheridan College, in addition to giving lectures and classes, he heads the famous: "Toronto Subway Sketching Group" and also publishes quarterly books on drawing and digital painting.

He is currently showing his 'step-by-step' painting process on a couple of digital art message boards. I'm digging his unique take on that old image, can't wait to see it completed!

If you'd like to follow Bobby's progress on the 'Mayan Samurai', CLICK HERE or on the above image and stay tuned.

For more on this super talented man and his independent band of art mercenaries, check Bobby Chiu and Imaginism Studios' Website



Cheers!

Crazy Days

Busy with life and a rush job that came out of nowhere, I hope to be posting with more frequency after the convention season is done, in the meantime a quick sketch and a tour poster for the great Me'shell NdegéOcello who just finished recording a brand new album (insanely great btw) Art directed by my good friend Rebecca Meek.

Sequence One







Abrazos,
