This site will be a hub to find all the various things I'm doing online and off as well as a continual work in progress. Take a look around and enjoy.
Story Posters I’ve always been a fan of silent storytelling. My intent is always to make a comic story that also works as a piece of art. I love trying to combine the flow of a story with the aesthetics of color, balance, shape and form. Some end up more art than story and others more story than art but that’s what makes each one a unique experience.
Scratchboard Art There's something about scratchboard that really appeals to me. It's a subtractive process that's closer to scupture in my mind than illustration.
As with most things, Mr.Oblivious began with a question. How many times can you tell the same joke and still make it funny (or at least reasonable funny?) and could it be done in a comic strip? It never dawned on me growing up how many cartoons I watched that were the same story with just a different take. Who's in the mask this week? What wacky invention will the Coyote try today? The list goes on and on. I loved them anyway no matter how many times I watched and still do.
I think was about 1984, I must have been 14 or 15.
The Incredible Hulk
I wish I had dated all these old drawings, but I didn't. This was age 15 or 16. Definitely copied from somewhere.
Again, this is copied from somewhere I'm sure. Maybe age 16 or 17.
The Design Books Books to teach basic principles of design in a simple, yet understandable way. They can teach ages from kindergarten to adult. A look into my mind and how I think about graphic design.
If You Have To Ask Simple illustrations and tongue-in-cheek text combine to provide an amusing perspective on dealing with common situations and the obvious questions we encounter everyday. Each spread features a universal question, a graphic “Yes” or “No” check box with a pithy punch line, plus quirky and original illustrations.
