My newest embroidered patch set on Kickstarter is heading into the final days of the campaign. With the help of over 225 backers, we were able to fund this campaign in 8 hours on the first day, get a prestigious “Projects We Love” award from the Kickstarter staff, and unlocked the first two stretch goals in 48 hours (and since then we have unlocked three more and surpassed $10,000 in funding). See below for the artwork of the three new patch designs — the Pharaoh Astronaut, the Winged Capsule and the NAZCA Officer’s Insignia.
My newest embroidered patch set on Kickstarter is heading into the final week of the campaign. With the help of over 200 backers, we were able to fund this campaign in 8 hours on the first day, get a prestigious “Projects We Love” award from the Kickstarter staff, and unlocked the first two stretch goals in 48 hours (and since then we have unlocked two more). See below for the artwork of the two new patch designs — the Pharaoh Astronaut and the Winged Capsule.
This patch set features 3 main embroidered patches with an ancient mysteries theme, and the artwork features the enigmatic monuments Stonehenge, the Sphinx and pyramids and the Moai heads of Easter Island.
The concept here is that these are a set of mission patches for Ancient Astronauts visiting our planet in the remote past, commemorating their various spaceports here on Outpost Earth which we now know as ancient places of mysterious origins.
In hindsight, it was so obvious. Once I had the basic concept of ancient astronauts, I realized that like the Apollo missions, the ancient astronauts would want to have their own mission patches. And of course, each would be themed to one of their “landing sites”/”spaceports”! The designs began to come to life on their own. I knew I wanted a retro rocket thrust, the Easter Island heads in minimalist high-constast style, and the rest of the designs just flowed from there.
The name “NAZCA” is a play on both the United States space administration (“NASA”), as well as the mysterious “Nazca lines” in Peru, another mysterious ancient artifact that ties into this entire theory. I thought it was a perfect and fun way to tie this all together.
I also concoted an acronym for NAZCA to fit in with the theme:
Nibiru Astronautics & Ziggurat Construction Architechts

My newest embroidered patch set, titled “NAZCA”, launches on Kickstarter July 5, 2016. This patch set will feature 3 main embroidered patches with an ancient mysteries theme, and the artwork features the enigmatic monuments Stonehenge, the Sphinx and pyramids and the Moai heads of Easter Island.
I’ve been creating a set of these Bigfoot marker art sketch cards for the 2016 Ohio Bigfoot Conference at Salt Fork State Park in Cambridge, Ohio.
I started working with Copic artist markers recently and have become quickly hooked on them. In addition to the Bigfoot sketch cards, I’ll have more paranormal and cryptid sketch cards featuring aliens, UFOs, Chupacabra and other cryptids. I’ll also have some skull sketch cards as well.
This sketch of a superhero roller derby girl was created for a client’s animation project which didn’t end up going past the concept stage.
There were of course a team of roller derby girls, each with their own powers, signature color and element. This girl’s element was obviously “water”.
I liked how this turned out, and it was fun to work in this more realistic cartoon style. I also enjoy coming up with variations on a theme, so I was looking forward to developing the rest of the characters in the group.
Now live on Kickstarter: the “Ghost Guard“glow-in-the-dark embroidered patch, lapel pin and I.D. card campaign with reward levels that include original art, limited edition item sets and Kickstarter-only exclusives!
