A collage/painting made out of all the women's faces from one of my Italian pulp fiction comic books and an old issue of 'Nightman'. This one I was just cleaning my brush and lacking a rag or clean water I just drybrushed/wiped it off on a board here and there, eventually somehow it turned into a small abstract painting.

More of the dream journal 'Sketchbook Project'

A few more illustration sketches based on actual dreams I have had.

A new character design

I'd love say that she's based on a boogeyman of my own childhood, but she's not. She is actually based on an old handed-down blue and black striped long sleeved shirt with exposed shoulder patches that ill fits me but I still love to death anyways.

Burn their children's laughter on to hell.

Sorry for the slow updates. I'm out saving the world every other day when I am not trying to take it over with my death ray machines. I'm also busily listening to my new System of a Down cd and the Relayer album by YES, as you can see here in the Sketchbook Project spread below.

I'm not sure if you could tell but her face is pale yellow, being the underside of a paper that had marker ink bled through. This technique of drawing something heavily in marker then going over the back side of the paper with new lines done in pen or india I just began experimenting with during my senior year. It's a fun way to make a creative solution out of all those annoying bleedthru marker pages that waste your notebook paper.

Same process was used here:

"When life gives me lemons I make beef stew."

Old Sketchbook

Sketches of a creature concept of mine called 'daggerbreed' that I really want to see used on a Magic:The Gathering card or the likes of someday. I loved these guys after having a nightmare about a bunch of them running wild on some kind of barbaric battlefield planet, where the only inhabitants were just discarded machines killing each other for supremacy. I dunno if the planet was once inhabited by a wiped out race of human beings or some other organic civilization, or if it was always a dead one from the start and they were just put there. Or built themselves from the ground up. Who knows?? Perhaps I will do an art book about them and all the other crazy mechanical creatures that are running amok up there.

Twit4Tat: "Orphans"

djcoffman tweets: "Had a dream my Dad returned from Haiti with 20-30 orphans. He looked super stressed out."

The Sketchbook Project: Nighttime stories

This is an Illustrated dream journal for the Sketchbook Project of the Brooklyn museum. I dream EXTREMELY vividly when I go to sleep and decided to show some of my most memorably beautiful, or just damn scare-your-pants-off weird dreams and nightmares that have stuck out in my memory over the years.

This is the cover of the sketchbook.

Deja Vu: The Inks

"I is for Ida who drowned in a lake." My best attempt at cloning it on as small a piece as possible, done in milky pen on black gesso. "Z is for Zyla who drank too much gin."- My own interpretation of her. I dunno why I wanted her to be an elderly looking person with a crazy hairdo. I just roll that way.

Deja Vu: The Digitals

A wine bottle label.

NO NO NO AND A THOUSAND TIMES NOOO I DID NOT USE LIVETRACE FOR THIS SAPPHIRE ONE. I swear to god. This took me well over three weeks. Come to think of it, I didn't even know what Livetrace was at the time as a matter of fact...

Deja Vu: The Mixes

Deja Vu: The Paintings

Sorry for all the repeats, after deleting everything I just wanna reupload these to get em all out of the way, so you newcomers may all get to see them!
