Zombie police officer illustration holding a gun and smoking cigar

Zombie Police Trooper

Client:
Lawrence James

Description:
Illustration of a zombie police officer I created in Manga Studio and Adobe Photoshop for a motorcycle club of state troopers for their club seal and apparel. This was based on a similar design I created a couple years ago with a digitally painted zombie gunslinger. It was a lot of fun to revisit the same concept, but in a different style, and with my skills improved a little.

Dark detailed illustration of a epic battle between Freddy, Leatherface, Nosferatu, The Excorsist, Frankenstein, Kirk Hammet, Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Corey Taylor, and more.

Illustrated Battle Between Heavy Metal and Horror Characters for Website Background

Client:
M.A.S. Productions

Description:
I illustrated this dark detailed illustration of an epic battle between Freddy, Leatherface, Nosferatu, The Excorsist, Frankenstein, Kirk Hammet, Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Corey Taylor, and more for a documentary on the history of Metal and Horror.

I was hired by Producer Mike Schiff of M.A.S. Productions to create an illustration of some of the most iconic figures in horror and heavy metal engaging in an epic battle. The image was used to promote a documentary they produced which explores the history of heavy metal music, horror films, and how the two genres have merged together over time.

The documentary features interviews with Alice Cooper, Kirk Hammett, Corey Taylor, plus a ton of other heavy metal stars, along with huge names in the horror industry. It was so great getting the chance to illustrate these iconic figures, including Freddy, Leatherface, Nosferatu, Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Kirk Hammet, and more. Pieces of the illustration were also used for an animation promoting the documentary.

Client Testimonial:
Incredible job on this. I knew you’d create something amazing , and holy crap is this good.

Eagle and Fire Helmet T-Shirt Design

Client:
Tom Malzacher

Description:
T-Shirt illustration of an American Bald Eagle and a fire-fighter helmet I created for a brand of apparel for fire-fighters. I set up this design for full-color printing, and kept everything in separate layers so we could customize the design in the future for each troop of firemen who purchase the shirt. I chose to illustrate this in a more realistic style than I typically do, and we’re really happy with how it turned out.

Here's something really bizarre I created a while back for the musicians #WeChief. This is a character they created called Booty Clap Soldier – we thought it would be funny to use my children's book style to render such a strange character.

The 2nd book in a chidren’s book series about Zombies I illustrated for Wendy Knuth. I’m very proud of this 32 page story featuring a whole family of creepy but fun zombies driving around town and getting into trouble. I had a lot of fun drawing zombies in a very different way than I typically do. Can’t wait to read this to my kids!

This illustration was for a private commission for a fan’s husband (I believe as an anniversary present). She needed a large illustration to fit on two facing panels in a hallway, and wanted it to be fun and creepy at the same time. We came up with this idea of drawing a giant killer bee wielding a chainsaw in a ruined city as bystanders flee in fear. I printed them out on two large 36 inch square panels. #killerbee #chainsaw #mangastudio #photoshop #illustration #tshirt #art #instaart #instaartist #picoftheday #igdaily #followme

Album cover I illustrated 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.” #johnwayne #metal #albumcover #mangastudio #photoshop #illustration #tshirt #art #instaart #instaartist #picoftheday #igdaily #followme
