This year's halloween costume

I went as myself from 7 months ago. Clever, clever.

For a Friend...

...who is having a pretty rotten Halloween so far...

Hopefully this helps.

And for the record, real monsters don't sing showtunes.

In the Spirit...

Here are some old fantasy/horror RPG illustrations I've done in the past.

This is a Illustration for the Promethian RPG done in my MILKING THE CRAP OUT OF ILLUSTRATOR phase. I am proud of what I could, in fact, milk out of the Illustrator program.

This is another Promethian Illustration. I love this sucker. It may not be my best illustration and the levels are all screwed up, but I love the look of this guy. If I played Promethian this would be me.

This is a one of my favorite illustrations ever. It was for the Werewolf reboot. The idea was a pain spirit possessing a dumptruck. It is exactly how I saw it in my head. I can't tell you how rare that is.

This is a Illustration done for the World of Warcraft RPG. At the time I was the only artist not actually working for Blizzard working on the game. On my imaginary artist badge sash of pride... you'll find this illustration.

This is an excellent example of me using friends in my Illustration work. This is Eric Crews (guy with unfortunate chest carving) and David Fischer (ghost). I don't talk to either of them anymore but they will always exist for me like this... which is kinda weird and cool. Better than pictures. Also, that is real paint... which now a days is SUPER RARE for Stowe.


Lots of posts today...including this year's halloween costume
(witch in no way is as embarrassing as last year's halloween costume)

Stoweckie #5: Lazy Stereotypical Humor

What? No Eiffel Tower in the background? I can't even do lazy stereotypes right.

On the plus side... people still hate the French right?

Stoweck... err... Monluckie #4? or #1... hmm...

A friend of mine (and all around amazing cartoonist, illustrator and chalk arteest) Mark Monlux sent me this piece of brilliance last night. I am happy to be able to post it here.

This kind of thing is pretty awesome. I am humbled that he would join me in quick sketching madness.

It so awesome, I feel the need to respond to it in kind.

Zombot... meet Robie.

Check out other excellent work by Mark at or on his own art blog:

Seriously, Do it... You'll be glad you did.

Stoweckie #3: The Revenge of Bucky Eggers

I don't even know what goes on in my own head sometimes...

Stoweckie #2

Who has a loose definition of "Monster"... but the result was witty none the less.

...perhaps though, you should be the judge.

One down...

Stoweckies Project

I have been disappointed by my lack of art posts this month. I love October and Halloween and I should really be banging out the art. But I am busy at work and at home and I haven't been motivated to begin any new projects.

With that being said... I am going to try a series of quick Stowe digital doodles for the month of October I'm calling "Stoweckies" (cause, honestly, I felt the need to call them SOMETHING). And this is where I need your help, faithful blog stalker. I need suggestions on what to draw. I want to be monster themed but add some random flair so... how about Monster + Something Completely Random = Stoweckie.

For example:

Follow me?

Good. Add your suggestions in the comments. I promise to do at least one a day, even on weekends up until Halloween. That way I am posting but not taking alot of time up doing it.

3 to the last Frost park Chalk-Off of the season...

We are winding down at the park for the year... but that is no excuse not to go out there and make some mean art.

It takes alot to inspire political satire out of me. But this week did it.

Just sayin.
