» My Superman Fan Art Used by El Rey Television Network

El Rey cable television network used my Superman fan art in September 2016 to promote their Superman movie weekend on television and on their social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).

Here are screen caps of my art in use on their media, and links to the media itself:

» My Battlestar Galactica Art Used by Fifth Ground Entertainment

This post has been updated farther below)

My Cylon drawing might be on a television show to be aired in late June 2015.

I was contacted by a lady who works for Fifth Ground Entertainment (a link to their page: Fifth Ground Entertainment’s Reelside page), and she asked if they could use my Cylon drawing in an upcoming episode of their “Reelside” program, and I said yes.

You can watch a trailer of the upcoming episode here on You Tube (my artwork does not appear in the trailer, however, not that I could see):

  • Episode 1×04 airs Thursday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO Canada on The Movie Network. Available on TMN GO starting June 26.

I sent the lady my art files last Friday (June 20, 2015), but so far have not heard from her. I e-mailed her again on Monday to ask if she received the files. I did not get a response.

I then e-mailed the Fifth Ground information e-mail address (today, June 24th) to check on the status of this project and so far have not received a reply.

I am assuming at this point that my art will be used in the episode but am not totally sure because I’ve not had a confirmation since sending the art in on the 20th.

» Norman Reedus book of fan art – Thanks For All The Niceness

The book can be purchased at the following site:

BigBaldBook.com (most of the proceeds go to charity)


One of my digital paintings of actor Norman Reedus as The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon appears in the book of Norman Reedus fan art, “Thanks For All The Niceness” on page 108.

I am very grateful that Mr. Reedus chose my art to appear in the book (exactly how my art got included is a little bit of a long story I won’t delve into here).

My art’s inclusion was a last-minute thing, and it almost did not make it in. Over 3,000 pieces of art were submitted by various artists and fans, and only 100 were chosen to appear in the book.

The book was published and released in the fall of 2014 and can be purchased at the following site:

For Reedus’ newest book, he got a little help from his fans. According to the official description for Thanks For All The Niceness, the new book “is Norman’s way to show his gratitude in a compilation of artwork made by his fans. The Norman/Daryl archetype is created in tattoo designs, cakes, pencil sketches, mosaics and more. Norman selected over 100 fascinating pieces that appear in this beautifully designed book. It’s real art made by real people for real people.”

Norman Reedus is donating a significant portion of the proceeds of the book to The Bachmann Strauss Dystonia and Parkinson Foundation.

It’s no secret that “Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus is a fan favorite of the zombie-apocalypse show. There are numerous online groups devoted to Reedus and his character Daryl Dixon, including the Reedusluts (really) and Dixon’s Vixens.

As MTV points out, Reedus is paying tribute to his fans by culling together some of the best Daryl Dixon fan art out there for a new book called “Thanks for All the Niceness.”

The collection will feature tattoos, cakes, pencil sketches, mosaics and more. Or as the website describes it in very Daryl Dixon terms: “real art for real people.” The book is due out October 31, with proceeds going to The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia and Parkinson Foundation.
