This is my interpretation of what a family crest would look like in the wizarding world.
It is for Harry’s family so it includes a stag Patronus representing Harry’s dad, a doe Patronus representing Harry’s mom, the sword of gryffindor, Harry’s Nimbus 2000, the deathly hallows symbol, a lightning bolt, a snitch and three stars which could be found on every page of the American version of the books.

A quick warm up sketch of one of my statues on my desk.
I have always loved owls, they have always fascinated me. For some reason I never thought them as a bird, they were always shrouded in mystery. They have been seen as a symbol of wisdom because the owl is capable of seeing even in the dark and of vigilance because the owl is awake at night. They have been associated with wisdom, courage, inspiration, justice, civilization, strength, strategy, and art all of which are virtues I aspire towards.
I feel like owls are a good symbol for what has become a personal motto. Based on some internet research the Kemp family motto is lucem spero parare tenebras which translates to I hope for light i prepare for darkness. My great grandpa on my mom’s side always said hope for the best but be prepared for the worst so I feel very attached to this motto.
this is a preliminary sketch for a tattoo that i am thinking of getting to mark the occasion of my recent graduation from the art institute.
let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.
I am unbelievably excited for the dark knight rises. I was never really a fan of Bane but I am intrigued to see where Nolan takes the character. I haven’t seen Tom Hardy in too many things but what I have seen was good.
This was a test sketch for a children’s book that a friend of mine wrote. This page was about shark that would jump up on its tail and bark like a sea lion.
In honor of smodcast podcast puck nuts I have put together my “city of angels vs city of the devils” poster.
here are the flat colors:
Well the Stanley cup finals started last night and the L.A. Kings took a 1 – 0 lead against the Devils. I am pulling for the Devils, I would love to see Martin Brodeur win another cup before he retires. The city of angels vs the New Jersey Devils couldn’t get more perfect than that. Here is a sketch I am working on hopefully this will be completed before game 2 so I can post final art. below is the King angel vs the Devil.
With the New Jersey Devils moving on to the conference finals I felt like sketching up a potential shirt design. So far I liking it, I plan to incorporate the Devils logo and some hockey related elements as well.
Rangers eat nuts!
