Video: Anime Central 2014 Blood Lad chalk art time lapse

Now this was a fun job. I was asked to create a chalk mural at Anime Central 2014 for VIZ Media to promote the North American DVD release of Blood Lad. The art style is unique, and the image I was asked to recreate was very different from most chalk art murals I make. There were a lot of flat colors, which for anyone who has worked in chalk knows, is NOT easy to pull off. In the end, after 25 hours of sketching and chalk work, I was very pleased with the result.

Video: ASYLUM Chalk Art from the Long Beach Comic Con

Back in November I made a chalk mural at the Long Beach Comic Con for the comic book Asylum from the mind of John Carpenter (yes, THAT John Carpenter). It is a wonderful horror/supernatural comic produced by Storm King Productions and with the story by Thomas Ian Griffith and Sandy King. The book features incredible art by Leonardo Manco, and that is what I recreated in a gigantic scale over the show weekend.

Toy Fair 2014 Chalk Art Photos

Progress on the Superhero from the Toy Fair 2014 Chalk Art.

I have been honored to create art at the International Toy Fair for the Toy Industry Association on three separate occasions. Most recently I was given the theme of "Creative Play" and asked to run with it. Unlike previous works I have made, this time we decided to create 4 individual panels instead of one large illustration. This was both to fit in the space provided on the show floor, and so that the finished images would also fit in the Toy Industry Association’s offices after the shown.

The convention was amazing, and there is so much to see there as it takes up the entire Javitz Center in New York City for four days. I have a high traffic spot near the entrance, and it was great that so many people not only saw my work, but that they also stopped by to find out more about what it is that I do.

Long Beach Comic Con: John Carpenter’s Asylum Chalk Art

Eric Maruscak, artist from pepperink.com, creates a giant chalk mural for John Carpenter's Asylum at the Long Beach Comic Con.

Back in November I was fortunate enough to be asked by to come out to California and make a chalk mural at the Long Beach Comic Con. The art was for the comic book Asylum by John Carpenter (yes, THAT John Carpenter) and is produced by Storm King Productions. It was truly an honor to be making art associated with one of the masters of horror, and director of some of my all time favorite films.

Asylum is a wonderful horror/supernatural book with the story by Thomas Ian Griffith and Sandy King, written by Bruce Jones, and featuring incredible art by Leonardo Manco. The description on the Storm King website reads:

Video: Utica Fest 3D Chalk Art

I was invited to appear at the Utica Music and Arts Fest in Utica New York, and was asked to create one of my 3D chalk drawings. Time was limited, as the outdoor arts portion of the festival was only one day, and it was threatening rain the entire time. But I buckled down and pulled through to create the artwork you can watch in the above time lapse video.

Video: Otakon 2013 Chalk Art

Above is the time lapse video for my appearance at the 20th Annual Otakon in Baltimore, MD.

I have become a regular in the artist alley section at Otakon over the years, but this show was something special as it was their 20th Anniversary. The mural I was asked to make was the cover for the program illustrated by Del Borovic. The artwork featured the Baltimore Convention Center in the background, the Otakon Mascots (including Crabby), and a whole assortment of Otaku.
