If you live in the Burbank area, come down to one of my favorite places in the world, HOUSE OF SECRETS and pick up this Wolvie print! As of now he’s just chillin on the Plastic Man bench 👍🏼 http://ift.tt/2cuCpCN

Here it is, the finalized Conker Rabbit that I made 5 years ago!...



Here it is, the finalized Conker Rabbit that I made 5 years ago! Today is the official Bleenkies anniversary, there have been a lot of ups and downs, but it truly has been fun! To be honest with you, about a month or two ago, I was getting ready to retire the Bleenkies brand. I’ve put a lot of pressure on myself throughout the years and it kinda finally got to me. The reason I didn’t quit though is because I asked myself, “what was the main reason for creating these characters?” The answer was my original motto, “created to brighten up your day.” I’ve seen the reaction from friends, family and fans first hand, everyone seems to smile when they see my work. If my art can make people happy and help them forget their problems for at least 10 seconds, then all this is worth it! I can’t wait to see the progress I make in the next five years! Hopefully you guys will continue to follow me in that journey! THANK YOU FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT!!! It means everything to me!!! http://ift.tt/2cek3s0

I got two more Bleenkies History posts to go! These are a few of my Conker Rabbit concept sketches! For those of you who don’t know the story, the reason I created this character was because I wanted to paint something fun onto blank shoes. I saw an artist online who would do custom shoes, so I thought I could do it too! The shoes were supposed to be for my friend Mary and after thinking about what she likes, (Hello Kitty, Tokidoki) I came up with Conker! F.Y.I. I still owe her a pair of shoes 😁 http://ift.tt/2cWvGFA

Ta-da! Here is the original Conker Rabbit in all his glory! It all started with this mini painting! At the time, I only had one brush and three mini canvases. I figured out how to paint the character on canvas after the third try! At the time I thought that I could sell these at the LA Artwalk! 😁 I have accomplished a lot since this painting and I’m not afraid to admit that I’m very proud of myself for creating something that made me happy… http://ift.tt/2cV0TJ8

Just one Bleenkies history post today! This one was made in the summer of 2011 for my friend Mary. At this point I was starting to get I feel for the Bleenkies style! Later that year I created my first bleenkie character! Stay tuned to find out who that critter is! ;) http://ift.tt/2cjP90O

Unless you own one my sketchbooks, here are some never before seen sketches made back in early 2011 (pre-Bleenkies). It feels really good to share these drawings with you guys! Now you can see that not every drawing or beginning is perfect ;) http://ift.tt/2csbCdl

Since I’ve been posting pictures of Bleenkies history these past couple of days, today I decided to show my drawing process. People always compliment my clean lines (thank you!), this picture shows you that my drawings don’t ever start off that way 😊 I also wanted to post this to introduce my newest character in the Bleenkies Universe! Say hello to the Pumpk Rock King! #bleenkies5yearanniversary http://ift.tt/2coZHyl

#tbt - Here’s another inside look of a past illustration. Made this one for the second art show I participated in back in 2012! I always start off any project with good old fashioned paper and pencil! After that I take all my work into Photoshop. Good times! 👍🏼 http://ift.tt/2ctmlTa

Here are a couple of illustrations I made back in the summer of 2011. As you can see, at this time I was experimenting with this style which would eventually turn into Bleenkies! It’s fun to see where my current characters originated from! Stay tuned for more Bleenkies history tomorrow 😁 http://ift.tt/2cbq0p2
