Dumpleton's Den



Just want to share with you guys a sketch I did of my cousin Rob today. Haven't used grey markers in a longgg time so it was fun messing around with them. Putting use to the new grey markers I got from my cousin Rob for Christmas no less :)



Finished Number Book!

Hello hello! So the day has finally come, after many hours of hard work the number book "Count at the Zoo!" is completed. Not to toot my own horn or anything but I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, I really enjoyed the subject matter and had fun playing with colors. I hope all the kids down in Austin, TX will love this book which will be given out to them free courtesy of Carousel Pediatrics :) I will say that it is very rewarding to know that these educational books are going to reach the hands children who are less fortunate. My gratitude goes out to Rachel Wood who has given me the opportunity to create this series and allow me to build some solid portfolio pieces along the way. I cannot thank her enough.

Hope you enjoy!




What's up guys, hope everyone is doing well. I just wanted to share how my sleeve is developing and to give much appreciation to my cousin Rob Benigno's Tattoo work. It's exciting to see how the sleeve is progressing after each appointment I have, and I'm proud to wear such great work for the rest of my life. I've always loved the art of tattooing and seeing the styles of many different artists. Many of which are also very successful illustrators, with good reason. They have great work and interesting styles that adapt very well to the world of illustration. Some of my favorite artists include Jeff Gogue ( http://gogueart.blogspot.com/ ), Jesse Smith ( http://www.jessesmithtattoos.com ), and Electric Pick ( http://www.electricpick.com ). Not to mention the awesome work of my cousin Rob Benigno ( http://robblognigno.blogspot.com ). So if you want to see some incredibly talented tattoo artists, check these guys out!
