Hey You Guys!

Recently I had the privilege of contributing a piece to the Hey You Guys! charity art auction, which raises money to keep the arts in schools. The theme is 80s movies. To find out more about the auction and movie screening head over to their website: Hey You Guys!

It was difficult to choose a subject seeing there are so many wonderful and unique characters from which to choose. After much thought and many failed sketches, I finally settled on the Childlike Empress from The NeverEnding Story

I've wanted to paint the Childlike Empress ever since I first read the book a few years ago, so it was fun being able to paint her for such a great cause.

Here's my piece in the auction

Master in Training

I've been a pokemon fan since I first saw an image of Pikachu when I was 12. Here's the proof:

"Pokemon Trainers" circa grade 7

After a hiatus of more than a year, I started watercoloring again. I admit, it's been a struggle at times. It's not easy re-teaching myself to paint, so I did a practice piece. Naturally, my subject of choice was a pokemon master in training.

Hey Howdy Hey

Well, since my brother mentioned me in his first blog post, I figured I ought to do the same for him, considering the creation of this blog is pretty much all his doing.


Seriously, go check him out now. He's awesome. Cory Godbey


I currently work as an in-house illustrator for a local textbook publisher. I draw pictures, all day, every day. It's my favorite way to spend my time and the most natural way for me to express myself. I plan to use this blog to share ideas, sketches, and paintings I'm working on.

Hope you enjoy your stay.

And I hope you're happy now, Brother.
