Bucket Truck T-Shirt Illustration

Client:

Studio Eleven

Description:

Stylized illustration of a bucket utility truck for a power company’s brand of apparel I created in Manga Studio.  This was fun to take on a subject matter that I don’t deal with much, and practice drawing vehicles for a bit.  I find it tricky inking vehicles because every line has to be right – and it’s tricky to not slip into drawing something that looks too rigid.  The client was happy with the final result, which was set up for full-color printing on t-shirts.

Client Testimonial:

Wow! The owner’s expectations have been exceeded!

I created this mascot character for the internet securtiy firm Talos, of a cyborg cyber-crime-fighter.  The brand approached me with the task of designing a character that would be used on their website and other marketing materials.  We went through a few sketches in the beginning, exploring different options, and eventually arrived at the idea of having a realistic looking, futuristic cyborg, projecting the

Cartoon mascot illustration of a Bear playing playing basketball I created for Great Dane Graphics and their children’s sports line.  The graphic will be used for T-Shirts and other products for kids’ sport teams.  The client wanted these designs to be fully rendered digital paintings, without lineart, which is not the typical style I work in.  I’m happy with how they turned out.

Skeleton Rider Patriot T-Shirt Design

Client:

Hard Ride Clothing

Description:

T-Shirt illustration I created for Hard Ride Saloon, featuring a skeleton patriot riding a dire wolf away from a burning Illuminati pyramid. Try saying that three times fast! The client’s idea was to have the patriot character changing the sheep into wolves as he rides past, waving the american flag. This design is 100% ‘Merica!

T-Shirt illustration of demon and angel wings for MMA apparel company

Angel and Demon Wings MMA T-Shirt design

Client:

Dark Horse Fightwear

Description:

T-Shirt design I created for the MMA apparel company, Dark Horse Apparel, featuring a set of demon and angel wings on the back. I’ve seen T-Shirt designs with wings on the back before that I really liked, so I tried to approach this one by adding my own stylistic input wherever I could. I put most of that into the abstract handling of the “spine” down the back.

This design was set up for silk-screening with 4 colors.

Beer label growler illustration design of a robot for silk-screening

Silk-screen Growler illustration for Half Time Brewing

Client:

Halftime Beverage

Description:

Custom silk-screen illustration I created of a happy robot made of brewing equipment for Half Time Brewing Company’s 2014 Growler design.

It’s always a lot of fun working with Half Time. This project in particular was a fun challenge, and different than other beer label designs I’ve done, because the design is going to be silk-screened directly on the bottle, so I had to be careful to keep my colors limited, and to make sure that my details were not too fine. Half Time gave me a lot of freedom with the design, and we are both very happy with how it turned out.

Testimonial:

Brian Allen, an illustrator and graphic designer who is not only talented, personable and fun to work with but also understands how his piece of the puzzle must compliment the big picture.

i-4 Web Design banner

Website banner illustration I created for an SEO marketing company called i-4 Web.  The two creators gave me a few pics of themselves so I could illustrate them as cartoon characters.  They asked me to create a scene in which they were working hard to translate a website to mobile and tablet versions, the mainstay of their business.
