A little something I painted on an old book cover. I enjoy painting these little paintings on old book covers immensely. To see more of my artwork check out Penandmarker.wordpress.com as well. Also, feel free to contact me at Phenzyart@gmail.com for all your illustration/creative needs.

At the fork in the road I split myself into two…

I feel like I have been neglecting this website and unfortunately it is true… the fact that I have both this website and my pen and marker website that I try to keep running (even though I finished my 365 days of drawing a while back) sometimes I’m not sure which page to post things to. On top of that that I also started a Tumblr page called Mega 8 just for my video game related artwork, so it ends up being a lot of work to keep up with everything that I have going on(but I still love working on all of the sites that I run). Oh well… I will make up for it by updating you with some of the things that I have been up to lately.

First, tonight my wife and I donated artwork to a great cause. We donated to the Music for the Arts Benefit that is held in our hometown. You can read all about the night here.

I also had the honor of being part of the Megaman Boss Battle Tribute which is happening currently online and in March in San Francisco at Gauntlet Gallery.

There are a ton of awesome artists involved in the show (including Ashley Davis who is one of my favorites). You can check out the Megaman Boss Battle here.

Here is my piece from the show, Copy X from the Megaman Zero series.

I decided to take Copy X in a direction that I didn’t think everyone would expect. I think all in all it turned out pretty awesome.

I have also been working with a super awesome company who we all know and love who rents out movies. Its just in the planning stages and kind of supposed to be kept under wraps but I can’t wait till the project comes to completion so that I can share the end result.

Not too happy with this drawing. But I can’t be too hard on myself I did it while I was unable to sleep and watching Breaking Bad. I was testing out a couple of new brushes and techniques and am happy that I did. I have no idea why I decided to doodle Abe though.

There is an old saying…


An illustration of these two dudes that have been on TV a lot recently. This was an illustration I had made about how both Romney and Obama support the NDAA and Kill List and that because of that they are both bad choices for America. I don’t really know how I personally stand when it comes to this, because I tend to believe that in the interest of national security maybe the government is withholding evidence. Either way though I think this turned out to be a pretty sweet illustration. I drew Barak Obama and Mitt Romney both as devils to illustrate the topic.
