Goblin Breakfast

eatin bugs panelsHey there! Here are 4 panels from an upcoming anthology I am working on with my artist collective, Apocalobster. The theme is Love and Monsters, and we will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to publish it in a month or so. We will have comics, music, stickers, shrits and so much more.  These panels are from my comic (as of yet untitled) about a goblin who falls in love and depict a goblin breakfast. Stay tuned for more sketches and updates on the project. l will definitely be posting links to the Kickstarter once it begins :)


Orbs of Power Issue #1 Cover

orbs of power coverI am beyond excited to present the Orbs of Power Issue 1 cover! I made this using a program called Art Rage, which I highly recommend. It’s mostly digital oil paint with digital watercolor for the sky. It has been a challenge, but overall I’m pleased.

Right now I am preparing the first issue for print and I hope to have it printed today!


The Orbs of Power’s New Home

You can visit by clicking the “Orbs of Power” link in the menu bar above, or by clicking HERE.


Side Quest: Portrait

Kitties web friendlyHey there! Here is another side quest-a portrait of two of my closest friends and their adorable kitty. I did this at request for Valentine’s Day. It’s hand inked and colored with watercolor pencils, which turned out alot better than I thought. I did the beard and the cat in regular colored pencils, too.

P.S. if you want a custom portrait or illustration, just send an email to vmshields@gmail.com or post a comment on the site!
