     A bit about me?  I’m not a terribly exciting person, but I’ll share anyways.  I’m a freelance illustrator and wildlife artist, with a healthy love for our natural world as well as all things fantastical and science-fictional.  I currently reside in San Diego, with my wonderful wife and a slew of misfit adopted pets, where I lead animal drawing sketch groups and attend the Watts Atelier of the Arts.

  2. Stumbled across your site doing a google image search.
    Your cthulhu-esque creature is a new favorite of mine.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Hi, Tom. Voice from the past. Dick Whitley, step-son to your Aunt Lois. You were good enough to give me (waaay back when) a rendering of a “California Superman”. Unfortunately, I’ve moved around enough in my Marine Corps & educational days that it has been lost to the ages. I really love your site. I am also a semi-ravenous reader of graphic novels… any out there with your credits? Congratulations and keep up the good work.

  6. Love your style, so full of action, life, color …Can I buy the horse painting or trade something creative for it? I am also full of creativity. And I love to work with the black and white chalks on a colored ground. What paper do you use, please? In two days I am drawing Willie Nelson’s guitar and I’m using top quality pastel paper, black ‘n’ white Conte pencils and hope.

  7. Thanks for the kind words, Janet. Unfortunately, the horse painting is unavailable, but if you’re interested in commissioning one, shoot me an email (tom_babbey@yahoo.com). As for the paper I use, It’s Cachet’s “earthbound” sketchbook series, with the highlights put in using a General’s white charcoal pencil. Good luck on the guitar, and all the best!

  8. Just came across some of your paleo-art and it immediately drew me in, and I quickly found myself looking through the rest of your art. Beautiful stuff, I love your lines, it has really inspired me to try out some new ideas.

  9. Did you do two sketches “Old Man’s Memories” and “Lady Godiva”? I have copies of them and am researching them.
    Thank you,
