Painting of the Day- The Horde's Men!

The Horde's Men by Taylor Lymbery
It has been a while since I have posted art on this site. I've been busy working on some illustration work that I can't share with the public due to copyright at this time. So, I figured I would remedy that with this piece now that I am finished with one major project. "The Horde's Men", as I've come to name it, is my third painting to date. It features the Evil Horde's men; Mosquitor, Leech, Grizzlor, and Mantenna in the way back ground. I would love to get more pieces done this year cause I absolutely enjoy painting and would like to be better at it like one of my heroes, Earl Norem. Back in 2005, Earl had stated that most of his contacts in the industry were either retired or dead and the younger art buyers didn't want anything to do with an 81 year-old artist. When I read that, my heart broke. I care. If I could afford it, I would definitely by one of Earl's He-Man pieces. So, Mr. Norem, if you are reading this, I made this in your honor, good sir! You are a fantastic artist!

This piece is painted in acrylics on a 13" X 24" 60lb polar matte paper. This image is a scan of the painting. You can also see this piece in my deviantart gallery here. I hope you enjoy the piece. Now I've got some comics and commissions to finish. 

I purchased a table for the Dallas Comic Con in May. I look forward to seeing all of the familiar faces and hopefully some new people stopping by to chat with us. 

I have posted some new shirt designs in my Cafepress store. Head over to my Cafepress store and get a shirt or a couple! 

I have all Xenex the Bug Man comic books available for print on demand. You can see that listing here on my store's tab for comic books. 

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! The shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
