Very excited to be working on an event poster for the Nightmare on Chicago Street – I decided to draw the poster on paper initially instead of digitally so I could really fine-tune the details. More to come soon! via The Art of Brian Allen – Flyland Designs http://ift.tt/2ydIHlM

Digital ink illustration of our favorite crime family from the Goonies. I’m experimenting with a new quicker, rougher style in Manga Studio using my wash brushes and textured ink pens. I really like the result, any feedback? via The Art of Brian Allen – Flyland Designs http://ift.tt/2zaSyZw

Traditional Hand Inking with Pentel Pen

This New YouTube video shows how I traditionally ink by hand with a Pentel brush pen for t-shirt design.

This is a T-Shirt illustration of a hip-hop singer gripping a mic spewing bad breath fumes I created for a hip-hop apparel brand called Unik Sovaj.

Speed-Inking Tutorial in Manga Studio for Album Cover Illustration

Speed-Inking Tutorial video I created for the process of digitally inking an album cover for the Brazillian band John Wayne in Manga Studio 5 (Clip Studio Paint) with a Wacom Cintiq 24HD.

The album cover I illustrated was for the Brazilian heavy metal band John Wayne (named after John Wayne Gacy – not the other guy). It was a great pleasure working on this with the band, as they gave me a lot of freedom, and I set upon the design without much planning, and tried to let it flow. This album cover is the first in a set of two albums, that when placed together will form one cohesive image. This album represents the dark side, while the following album will have a similar design, but mirrored, and “lighter.”
You can purchase the album here:

Masters of Anatomy Reference Book Highly Recommended

Great anatomy book I just picked up from mastersofanatomy.com. The book takes up over 100 different gorgeous and have them drop the same person in multiple views. It’s really cool to see all the different styles applied to the same picture. Highly recommended.

Blue Fairy T-Shirt Illustration

T-Shirt illustration of a fairy for Concentrated Apparel, a brand celebrating the lifestyle behind concentrated THC in oil and wax form. This design was challenging, because I had to make the fairy’s wings look like they were made of melting wax and crystals, while sticking to a limited color silk screen pallette. We’re really happy with how this turned out.

Illustration of mud people in a race for a poster

Mud Endeavor Poster Design

Custom poster illustration I created for the Mud Endeavor relay races in Florida. The client wanted a colorful, fun design for the event poster. I came up with the idea of having the contestants actually made of mud, since the particpants are usually covered in mud by the end of the race.

Magazine cover illustration of a giant sports stadium shaped like a birthday cake

Sports Magazine Cover Illustration

Editorial illustration I created for the cover of the Sports Business Journal commemorating their 20th anniversary. We discussed a lot of different ideas, and ultimately landed on this one: a giant stadium housing many different sports shaped like a giant layered birthday cake. The magazine has over 15,000 subscribers, and is geared toward the business side of sports.

Archangel T-Shirt illustration

T-Shirt design I illustrated for apparel brand Art Fashion Music. The client came to me with a beautiful renaissance painting of a the archangel Michael slaying demons as inspiration. This provided a challenge, because I needed to simplify the image enough to be printed in 3 colors. I really like how this turned out.
