Welcome to my sketch blog!

I am a cartoonist, illustrator, designer, and painter. I'd like to say a professional one, but I'm still working on that. Welcome to Step One of that process: my own personal sketch blog! Its purpose: to keep me drawing, and hopefully, to provide art for others to enjoy. Please feel free to leave comments- I appreciate any critiquing of my work. Just try not to completely tear me a new one. Also, I do commissioned projects! If interested, contact me at tonyaros1@gmail.com. As you can see I draw comic characters a lot, but I also paint and draw just about anything so hit me with your ideas!

Kentucky...Horace Kentucky

I've recently been collaborating with a cool guy named Dakota Brown who I met via e-mail.  I've been working on a couple comic ideas of his, but in the meantime he commissioned me to do a piece of artwork for his podcast/radio drama Horace Kentucky's Chronal Detective Agency.

At first listen you might be like me and think it's your standard, noir detective tale, but suddenly you're dealing with time-travelling goose eggs and the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  If you're a fan of imaginative, interesting, absurd but always entertaining radio serials then check it out.  He's got about 9 episodes up on iTunes for free.

So here we have (from left to right) Winnie, the deep-voiced drunk, Ricky the cowboy actor, THE Queen Victoria, and the titular detective Horace Kentucky.  At least this is what I pictured while giving the show a listen.  

Again, all characters are creations of the talented Dakota Brown- this is merely fan art.
