Maverix Studios

A great little collective of artists that I used to be a member of.

I've worked in many studios, but will always have a special fondness for MAVERIX STUDIOS, the place where I first created my own ideas, rather than merely being a cog in someone else's machine. All other members of the Maverix collective explored their own creative visions too and it was constantly chaotic, nutty & fun, as such stimulating places often are.

Jet-Kid ♥ Hola-Gato

This colour pencil drawing is my submission to the HITOTSU art Auction being held this Saturday at the SUPERFROG GALLERY, as a fund-raiser for JAPAN. In trying to do a piece for a show that honours Japan, I started out by thinking of all my favourite Japanese cartoon characters, which is where my love of Japanese culture began [..READ MORE..]

In celebration of all the glory that is the San Diego COMIC CON, here are some sketches of Con denizens that I drew a few years back… These drawings were all done for the "Field Spotters Guide to Gomers" that a few of us from Maverix Studios published a few years ago to aid in spotting Comic Con [..READ MORE..]

My Auction Pieces

These Star Wars portraits are the original pieces that I did for the latest Maverix Art Auction, held last night. Additionally, I submitted three signed and framed prints from my Dad's Elephant Book. Over this past week I rented and watched the original three Star Wars movies, and as I'd already been doodling the characters, I decided to [..READ MORE..]

Next week, Maverix Studios is hosting yet ANOTHER AUCTION. After raising money for many international charities, this time the Maverix crew decided to help a charitable organization in the Bay Area community, Glide Memorial Church. The proceeds from this particular art auction will support Glide's Children's Creative Arts Media Center. Past Maverix Auctions have typically raised $9,000-$12,0000 and [..READ MORE..]

Maverix Auction #6

One of my favourite things to do over the past few years has been to participate in the MAVERIX STUDIOS ART AUCTIONS. They have all been held to raise money for worthy causes, and the satisfaction in being part of one is many-fold. First of all, they are a fantastic prompt to make some original artwork that has [..READ MORE..]

KittyKorps VS DogsOfWar

These two pictures were designed to be hung as an opposing pair, as you see them here, but I also tried to make each one self-contained (and at the auction each piece actually DID go to a separate bidder). I made high resolution scans of each picture before framing, and I am considering working on them further in [..READ MORE..]

The Maverix Studios and Sketchcrawl Art Auction raised a mighty $13,000!!!! Not a bad effort for a few hours of honest fun. All the proceeds will go to the charity called EMERGENCY: Life Support for Civilian War Victims. This is another of the three pieces I submitted; a watercolor of Sephilina, which was successfully bid on by Derek. [..READ MORE..]

Behold: The Swag!

Yet another Maverix Studios art-auction fund-raiser has come and gone and I think this may have been one of their best yet. I certainly had a very good time. You can see here the 5 pieces that I won in the bidding (From top to bottom: Ted Mathot, Ronnie Del Carmen, Mike Murnane, Louis Gonzales, and Bill Presing). [..READ MORE..]

Another Maverix Fundraiser

Here is one of the pieces that I have been making this week for the latest art-auction being held by the good hearts at MAVERIX STUDIOS. The auction is this Sunday May 20th and I have two more pictures that I am trying to get ready before then. Maverix Studios have held several such auctions before, and they [..READ MORE..]
