  • What is this Project?
A full color illustrated book project. The book is Hardbound (With Jacket), around 125 pages, full color on satin (100lb) paper and 16x10" in Size.

The Artwork is reaching the finish line. I am ready to go on the production phase. Check out some of the illustrations HERE!

  • What is HANGBoY?

The mischievous character who turns reality upside down, sprung to life on any medium that was readily available to him. In his infancy, HANGBoY could be found defiling himself on napkins, notebook pages, whiteboards, and even beach sand. Since then he has matured (a little) and can be found immortalized on more formal media such as full color prints and sculptures. In every situation, HANGBoY’s message is clear: “Let’s play!”, as he never takes life too serious.

The HANGBoY character enables me to portray reality from a satirical point of view that I feel is often lacking in today’s society. I like to question the status quo and put a humorous, if not dark and mysterious spin on the situation. Check out my collection of old HANGBoY Art HERE!

  • What is HANGBoY WORLD WAR TOO?

In a way HBWWTOO is a military theme park. Lets just say I build the WWII movie sets and I let the HANGBoY characters roam free. These characters have a mind of their own. Impossible to keep them in control!

(See step by step VDO here www.youtube.com/watch?v=btIx3SCeeMs)

While HANGBoY is the kind of images a kid could or would draw, HBWWTOO is executed on a slightly different angle. The artwork is done more "professionally". Even though it has humor, twists and good ol' HANGBoY spirit, it tells you a story of mass chaos caused by a few dark and ambitious ones. It shows the world being far from perfect, and they can get through anything with a smile. All HANGBoYs look the same regardless of race or nation, only the uniforms, flags and logos separate them apart. I have been a fan of history, old school warfare and civilization for a long time. It is not entirely accurate but HBWWTOO is re-telling of history in a new way.

HBWWTOO was originally meant to be a smaller project with only a few illustrations, showing all the major events/battles during WW2, but just like the war, it is harder to get out than get in.  After 5 years (with some insane hours spent on other projects at the same time), I have more than 50 illustrations of the most epic WWII events, and decided it would be worth making a book to share with people.

I have been doing art since childhood, my grandfather was a wholesale paper dealer, so I got to draw a lot growing up. I am also an art book collector. What I feel like is missing in my collection, is a book of my own art. I plan to make both a hardbound edition for the old school lovers, and I have been developing an iPad app for those who are digitally savvy to be released after the book.

I hand draw all the artwork with Pencil and Ball Point Pen (Cheap Ball Point Pen is Awesome!), scan it into the computer, and paint using digital media.  I enjoy this format because it incorporates both my love of drawing, as well as, my former career doing Computer Graphics.

Thank you for your time and Thank you for spreading the word. I am excited and I hope you are too. 

International backers (outside the U.S. or Canada) please add $20 to help me with the cost of shipping.
