Beach Shrimp Festival T-Shirt Design

Client:
Model Tees

Fun limited color silkscreen t-shirt I created for a Shrimp Gumbo festival in Alabama featuring a handsome shrimp serenading a beautiful shrimps and the rest of the beach-goers.
The design was a fun challenge because the client liked my colorful full-color beach designs, and wanted something similar. But we could only use a limited silk-screen palette. I used halftones to cheat on some colors. We chose to draw the scene at night to make it unique to the previous year’s designs.

Evil Fish and Lure T-Shirt Design

Illustration I created for a new apparel line showcasing the lures by Rapala for fisherman.  The brand wanted something really edgy and dark, so we gave the fish a pretty menacing look.  It’s always a fun challenge taking on a detailed scene like this when limited to a smaller silk-screen palette.  This design was set up with halftones.

Marvel

Description:

Talk about a dream job!  I was fortunate enough to be hired to create an officially licensed t-shirt of Marvel superheroes to be sold in retail outlets.

The project was an immense challenge, as I tried to incorporate my style into the design, while also making sure to not deviate too much from the art direction from Marvel (which there was quite a lot of!).  This was designed in full color, to be separated later for simulated process.  Overall, I’m very pleased with how the design turned out, and awestruck that I had this opportunity.

I was hired by the app developer Butterscotch Shenanigans to create a silk-screen t-shirt celebrating their insanely popular adventure game Crashlands.  My art style fit perfectly with the brand’s over-the-top style and freaky characters.  It was a fun challenge to try to find a way to replicate the colorful style of the game while using only a small number of silk-screen colors.

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.

I created this t-shirt illustration of a surfing cartoon shark for a children’s line of beach themed clothing. The shirt uses special inks that only appear in the sunlight – so when indoors, the shirt appears as just the lineart. Once you take the shirt outside, the colors magically appear. It’s a really cool effect.

Eagle T-Shirt Design for Smith & Wesson #2

I was thrilled to be hired to create artwork for a new line of apparel for Smith & Wesson, featuring silk-screen illustrations of big angry eagles. It was a really fun challenge drawing the eagles, which I’ve always found difficult. Need to invest in a pet eagle for reference. The designs all needed to stay under six colors, which is always a challenge as soon as you introduce an american flag into the design (which eats up three colors right away). I used halftones wherever I could to limit the total number of colors.

The designs will be available in Smith & Wesson’s catalog, as well as in many retailers, such as Cabela’s.

Sledge-Hammer Skeleton T-shirt Design

I created this illustration of a skeleton with a sledgehammer for a new apparel brand showcasing the work of DIY television personalities, called The Reno Life. I tried to add a lot of my own style to the skeleton, and keep it tough while not scaring the kiddies away. We did a female version as well – and I found drawing skeletons to look female is a bit challenging when you don’t have many… parts…. to work with. This design was set up for full-color direct-to-garment printing.

Skeleton holding a sledgehammer wearing a hard-hat.

I created this illustration of a skeleton with a sledgehammer for a new apparel brand showcasing the work of DIY television personalities, called The Reno Life. I tried to add a lot of my own style to the skeleton, and keep it tough while not scaring the kiddies away. We did a female version as well – and I found drawing skeletons to look female is a bit challenging when you don’t have many… parts…. to work with. This design was set up for full-color direct-to-garment printing.

Skull T-Shirt Design for MMA Apparel Brand

I was hired to illustrate this T-Shirt design for one of my favorite clients, Darkhorse Fightwear, for their new line of MMA apparel. The design was set up for silk-screen using three colors, and illustrated in Manga Studio and Adobe Photoshop. The design was inspired by a previous illustration I created a few years ago – it was fun to revisit it and test out some new skills while illustrating it. The design features a skull in the center with wings and chains surrounding.

Evil monkeys jumping out of a barrel full of monkeys

Barrel Of Evil Monkeys T-Shirt Illustration

I was hired to create a T-Shirt design for a new apparel brand called Saltopus.  I was given only the direction that it had to include angry monkeys.  I illustrated a few concept sketches, and the client chose this concept, of evil monkeys emerging from an innocent looking Barrel of Monkeys toy.  The shirt was designed to be just one-color, which always poses a challenge.  Since I have no highlight or shading color, I really have to pack a lot of detail into the lineart and make sure it reads well from a distance.  We are both very happy with how this turned out.

Parody tribute t-shirt illustration of Dumb and Dumber Harry and Lloyd as zombies created by Freelance Illustrator Brian Allen

Dumb and Dumber Zombie Tribute Illustration Process

T-Shirt illustration I created as a tribute to one of the greatest films ever made: Dumb and Dumber. The piece is called “Dead and Deader,” and features Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carey) as decaying zombie corpses.

The t-shirt illustration was set up for silk-screening using 6 colors. It was a challenge to find the right color scheme for all these items (the iconic tuxedos, the worm farm, the Shaggin Wagon) with such limited color. But I’m very happy with how it turned out. I also recorded a speed-painting tutorial for my YouTube channel that I’m excited to share.

Check out this speed-painting tutorial video I created showing the entire illustration process:

Here are a few detail shots of the illustration.  I tried to cram as many Dumb and Dumber references that I could into the illustration.  Here’s Petey, not looking so good.

And here is the final illustration!  I’m very please with how it turned out.  I created two versions:  a full-color version, and a silk-screen version.  The differences are subtle, but in the silk-screen version, I had to come up with creative ways to create a lot of depth and color using only six colors.

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.

Custom T-Shirt Illustration I created for 80s Tees.com, featuring an unlikely team-up of Cobra (GI Joe) and the Decepticons (Transformers). It was a really fun challenge to illustrated so many characters (Cobra Commander, Baroness, Storm Shadow, Destro, Starscream, Megatron, and Trypticon) while only using a handful of silk screen colors (I believe this was four colors). We chose a dark color scheme highlighted with oranges and blues. Love how this turned out.
