2011 Art Year in Review

Happy New Year! You know, for some reason, the New Year's holiday has always been a bit melancholy for me ever since I was a kid. It never seemed like a new beginning but more of an ending of the holiday season and that meant getting back to the grind and facing the long Winter until the first blush of Spring. 2011 was a good year for me and many things were accomplished that I'm proud of. There were several good things going on, I sold my house, sort of received a promotion at my day job, attended Gen Con for the first time, did a lot of commissioned art. The down sides were few but one was significant in that I lost my grandmother to complications to Alzheimer's. But all in all, I'm happy with 2011. I'm not sure what 2012 will bring but that's part of the ride. So here's a look back at some of the artwork of 2011:
So, now 2012 is here, I'll try not to squander it ;)!


  1. That's some really excellent work you've done in 2011. Those last few that are colorized are really eye-catching. Especially like the Salamander.

  2. Great stuff, Johnathan. I look forward to seeing more in 2012.

  3. Is Daisy still doing a lot of your color work? Agree with Jim that it's very eye catching. (I dig the B&W stuff too, your style is something I continue to like.)

  4. What a productive year! Lots of great work in there --- I like the BW picture of the hero witht he flaming sword fighting the monster (a sphinx?) and the dude whacking the hellhound in the face with his flail.
    Happy New Year and I hope your next year is as or more productive and pleasurable as the last.

  5. Thanks all. It really has been a lot of fun!

  6. Yes, such great work, thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks Carter! Oh yeah, color work should still be coming your way! Daisey and I have been overwhelmed by holiday events (and visiting family and unfortunately some nasty illnesses). I hate making excuses, but alas ;(...
