i am an amateur drawer and painter. Sometimes I paint landscapes, animals or portraits but I also love to paint or draw a shrunken man in the hands of giants. Since as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by giants and, on and off through my life, I've been drawing and painting different situations depicting this concept. What you see here on my page are pictures picked from what I've done over the years. Sometimes it's plain pencil or I used watercolour, felt-tip pens, acrylics etc. Since computers have come into my life, I've been also trying to explore the new possibilities of digital painting.
I enjoy doing digital touch-ups on old scanned pictures using Photoshop.
I don't wish to get commissions as this is a hobby for me and I don't have that much time for it.
I share my stuff because it's nice to see that others out there enjoy it too.
I have no pretensions, I'm just having fun.

In a Shirt Pocket by manuscule
In a Shirt Pocket
A little man in a shirt pocket. "Make yourself comfortable in my pocket little man, we're going on a short trip you and me." says the giant to his minuscule human pet.

I look at pictures you have posted that I have looked at many times before and still find new and exciting things about them.  The gift you share with us is one that truly keeps on giving, in my case at least.  I am very caught up in the story featuring the virile genius Doc, the fragile tiny man and the awe-inspiring James.  (He is one HOT giant--is he perhaps based on an individual you have known?  He just seems so real!)  I have to add, though, that I have found myself increasingly looking back at the alpha giant Mr. Handlebar.  From what I have seen of him thus far, he does not seem to have the mix of animal magnetism with kindness/empathy you portray in James.  Rather, he seems brutish in nature . . . brutish and very, very sexy.  To me, he exudes raw masculine power and entitlement.  Coupled with his mature, swarthy rugged handsomeness, this is an extremely potent combination.  I want to find out how that story plays out!  You have a real knack for leaving your audience wanting more.  I almost wish that you weren't so good at inciting interest in your stories and characters.   For the record, I wrote "almost"!!  ;)   In one of your responses to a comment recently, you alluded to a group of giants involved in the shrinking and keeping of tiny men.  So, I am wondering:  will the story line of the Doc and James intersect at some point with that of the bearded scientist, his poor little subject and Mr. Handlebar?  Or are their stories unrelated?

At any rate, my continuing thanks and admiration!

It is very stimulating to have a person who likes so much what I do. I wish I were faster as it all takes time to get to the finish product. I have been starting stories quite often through my life and there's never been an end to any of them. I'm sorry I left "Mr. Handlebar"  story aside to concentrate on the "Doc" story. I go with where my inspiration takes me.
All those stories are unrelated. 
Jack is not inspired by someone I know, he's just a fantasy! He's inspired by what I like in a man, that's all.

No pressure from me on how often you post new work!!  I can imagine the time and energy you put into your art.  As my note was intended to convey, I get a lot of pleasure looking over your existing work.  As far as Mr. Handlebar goes, I totally respect that you follow your inspiration.  The fact that you do that has worked out really well for me--I wouldn't have it any other way.  That also goes for the giants you create based on your taste in men (like James and the Doc and several other men you depict)!  I guess I will just have continue the Mr. Handlebar story in my own fantasies.  ;)

I like all my characters so for me, it doesn't matter which one I'm working on.

I love your shrinking story comic. Is there a place where I can read all of them? I see you have posted 11-13, but where is 1-12? Or are the stand alone pictures meant to be those comic pages?

Thanks for your comment. I'm happy you love my story. You will be able to read them when they get ready. I'm in the process of making them now. Some stand alone pics are as a matter of fact part of some stories.
