Custom Jouwe Show

I have been asked to participate in a custom Jouwe show at TOY ART GALLERY in LosAngeles, California. The show opened October 2 and runs through November 2.The images below are photos of the figure I was given to customize. In all my excitement to start transforming the figure, I forgot to take photos. These photos are courtesy of SPANKY STOKES. The site is great, please pay them a visit.


These images are the vinyl Jouwe figure after my customization was completed. The title of the piece is 'Broken and Outdated.' To see more photos of the finished custom visit my site at www.jimmypickering.com and click the 'custom jouwe preview' button on the left of the page.

Here's what's on my desk currently.  This painting is based verbiage we've all heard from those who blame others for their own actions.  Interesting concept.

Concept Design for Film

I am often asked if I can or do concept design work for characters and movies.  The answer is yes to both.  

I studied film, character animation, along with art direction and color styling (thank you Bob Winquist!) in college and have had many exciting opportunities to do both in my professional life.  Here are two examples of such projects from the past.

This first images is one sheet of many rough for an "Abominable Snow Boy," for a project which did not come to fruition.



This second image is a style direction concept painting I did for The Wild Thornberry’s Movie.  The creative crew went crazy, in a good way, for this look, but it was deemed to expensive to execute the entire feature in this style and the film replicated the exact look created for the television show.


This kind of work is so much fun to do and I look forward to each opportunity I receive to participate in such projects.  

On My Desk

Some progress on my current painting.  Sometimes I develop a special liking for what I'm creating, this piece is one such painting.

On My Desk

What's on my desk today.  Nope, that's not real wood, it' part of the painted background I created for this new piece.

On My Desk

A bit more progress to my current painting.

On My Desk

It has been a long while since I posted a snap a painting on my desk, mostly because I've been on a bit of a painting hiatus.  Here's a what's currently on my desk.

Thank You

I personally thank everyone who made my latest gallery showing ‘Skellyopolis’ a smashing success.  Your positive response to the show and the rapid sale of the pieces within the exhibit has been humbling, making me grateful and thankful for such avid followers of my work.  

I express my sincerest gratitude to every single one of you.
