Here is a trio of two-page spreads I drew for a Care Bears wintertime storybook titled "Snow Fun". Grumpy doesn't particularly enjoy snow, so all of his Care Bear friends do their best to get him to join in the fun.

This is UR-2, a minor character from the Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-lot™ animated series that aired on CBS around 2007-2008. I did three versions of this character with varying degrees of detail.

While most of my time at Landoll Publishing was spent creating coloring books for the Hanna Barbera™ brands, I did occasionally get the opportunity to draw a few other classic characters like Bugs Bunny™ and Marvin Martian™
In 2008, I acted as showrunner for the Maryoku Yummy™ animated series that is currently airing on the HUB. Occasionally, I had the opportunity to use my skills to do a few of the show's designs as shown here.

Sushi Pack™ was one of the first shows the newly formed American Greetings Properties developed in 2005. These character designs were developed for the main cast; Kani, Tako, Maguro, Ikura, and Wasabi, as well as General Anesthetic, one of the many villains the Sushi Pack encounters.
As the Lead Illustrator responsible for the Care Bears' relaunch in 2002, I spent a great deal of time creating vector versions of vintage Care Bears™ art as well as drawing and digitally inking all new art like the samples above.
This is a 5 panel birthday card I wrote and designed for The Fairly OddParents™. The character art is a combination of style guide art and original art created for this card. A 3D version of this card, complete with glasses, was created soon after.
This scene of Hanna Barbera's most popular characters was drawn and inked to be separated into 16 trading cards – 4 cards printed on the back of 4 different Scooby-Doo™ coloring books.
Here are a few examples of coloring pages created during my tenure at Landoll Publishing. Scooby-Doo™ and Wacky Races™ were just a few of the properties for which I created original drawings and inkings.
