Description:

A fantasy author hired me to create this book cover illustration of his characters for his youth fantasy series of the Green Knight.

I love the challenge of designing characters from just a brief outline of a story.  The client asked me to create this in a softer pencil and digital painting style which is pretty different from my line-art driven style.  Real happy with how this turned out.

Which of my art styles do you think is better? I often switch between a line-art driven comic book style, and a digital painting style depending on the project. The line-art style is more familiar to me, and I think it's easier to convey a strong identifiable style in the artwork. But the digital painting style can come across as more realistic, and is often what clients in the darker genre are looking for.Which of these is a stronger piece?

T-Shirt illustration of a parrot and tiki heads marijuana themed

4’20 Somewhere Parrot t-shirt

Client:

Bongjour

Description:

I illustrated this t-shirt design for Bongjour in conjunction with the popular Chief Greenbud to celebrate his song “It’s 4:20 Somewhere,” a parody of Jimmy Buffet’s tune.  The design was printed as full-color direct to garment.  For this design, I tried a new technique:  instead of inking the design, I just scanned in my pencil drawing (which was done on paper) and colored the piece underneath the pencils.  I’m pretty happy with the result – it gives it a more realistic, and vibrant, and softer feel.

Illustration of comic book style hip-hop artists fighting a horde of zombies

Bukshot Album Cover

Client:

Bukshot

Description:

I illustrated this promotional poster and album cover for the hip-hop artist Bukshot who partnered with Violent J from The Insane Clown Posse, Madchild, and JellyRoll.  The album was a special edition, and released in a DVD sized package, which allowed me to create a cool portrait orientation, instead of having to squeeze everything into a tiny square.  Bukshot wanted the four artists illustrated as comic book characters, fighting a horde of zombies.  I enjoyed this so much!

Inking a variation on a zombie outlaw I had done previously for a Motorcycle Club – this time I'm attempting a more line-art driven illustration rather than a digital painting, because the design will also be embroidered on their jackets.#motorcycle #club #zombie #trooper #outlaw

Here's the final S&W design I created – like the previous design, this one had to be set up as a limited color silk-screen job, which threw me some challenges. Working with larger clients like this can be nerve-wracking, but I was lucky that they were happy with the designs in the end.Illustrated by Brian Allen, FlylandDesigns.com#mangastudio #photoshop #illustration #tshirt #art #instaart #instaartist #picoftheday #igdaily #followme

Angry rottweiler chewing on a piston for racing t-shirt

Angry Rottweiler Racing T-Shirt Design

Client:

Commando Racing Gear

Description:

Digitally painted illustration of an angry Rottweiler taking a bite out of a big Piston for the racing brand Commando Racing Gear.  This was a fun challenge to work on, because drawing realistic dogs, especially specific breeds, can be very tricky to get just right.  I’m pretty happy with the result.  This design will be separated to print with simulated process silk-screening and sold at drag racing shows and shops.

Skull and Plant T-Shirt Illustration

Client:

Grass Roots

Description:

I was hired by a fabric pot manufacturer for growing plants to create a t-shirt for their conventions.  They wanted something that displayed their product in a way that people would want to wear, even if they weren’t familiar with the product.  Naturally, I went with a skull.  The design was set up for limited color silk-screen (I believe 4 colors).  They were kind enough to send me a shirt, and it turned out great!

This is a fun album cover illustration I created for a hard rock band called the Jokers for their new album, Hurricane. The idea was to have the band in a classic-looking car flying through the air to their next gig, and causing a hurricane behind them, destroying London below them. The band needed the album art in a really short amount of time, but we pulled it off in time, and they were quite happy with the result.Illustrated by Brian Allen, FlylandDesigns.com#mangastudio #albumcover #illustration #tshirt #art #instaart #instaartist #picoftheday #london #followme

The band Hang The Jester hired me to create this detailed illustration of an evil jester made of a skull and horns for their latest album cover.  The band asked me to create something with a very liited color scheme, and a lot of pen and ink detail.  Unlike many of my other designs which are often 100% digital, I drew and inked this design on paper with technical pens and a brush.Evil skull jester album cover illustration Evil skull jester album cover illustration Evil skull jester album cover illustration Evil skull jester album cover illustration Evil skull jester album cover illustration Evil skull jester album cover illustration
