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

Description:

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

Lochness Monster Band Poster Design

Client:

Lochness Monster – Justin Shaner

Description:

Silk-screen poster illustration of a happy Loch Ness Monster I created for the band Lochness Monster.  I had a blast working on this.  The band gave me a ton of freedom on this design, and I came up with the idea of having the Loch Ness Monster looking friendly, with a severed arm dangling from its mouth, and the collected trophy/cameras of tourists hung around his neck.  He’s an elusive fella!  The design was set up for silk-screening using around 5 colors, created primarily for promotional posters and apparel for the band.

Client Testimonial:

They look awesome!!  Thanks, really great job on this!!

Chem Dawg Marijunana T-Shirt

Client:

Kellen Garey

Description:

T-Shirt illustration I created of a mutated Chem Dawg with three heads for a marijuana-themed apparel line.  Each shirt in the collection celebrates a different strain.  The client wanted me to illustrate a big crazy mutated, and glowing dog standing in a spilled container of toxic waste.  I thought it would be funny to have each of the three heads to be a different dog breed with a different personality.   More to come in this series! This design was created for direct-to-garment silk-screening.

Blowfish Vapes Logo

Client:

Blowfish Vapes

Description:

Logo design I illustrated of a punk rock blowfish for a vaping brand called Blowfish Competition Vape.  When we started, the only concept we had was the name “Blowfish Vapes,” so I experimented with a few different styles of blowfish, including one that was a salty pirate.  We like the concept of making the blowfish a punk rocker with a mohawk and piercings, including a big hook through his lip.  I tried to use a color palette with high contrast so it would stand out when it’s printed on the small label that goes on a vaping label.

Zombie character turn-arounds of a man, woman, boy, and girl

Zombie Vinyl Figurines Concept Art

Client:

CORE

Description:

A series of character concept turn-arounds I illustrated for a series of vinyl zombie figurines that will be manufactured and sold in a catalog.  This isn’t the first time I’ve created turn-arounds for figurines, but it’s the first zombie series.  I can’t wait to see how the final molded and painted models turn out.  To make this as efficient as possible, I first sent sketches to the client for just the front view.  Once approved, I used a 3D model in Manga Studio, positioned it close to the position of the front view, and then turned it to the side and back.  I then drew the other angles using that model as reference.  Pretty effective little trick!

This is a detailed series of illustrations I created for a children’s book teaching kids about construction. Each double-page spread was packed with animal characters, vehicles, tools, and activities. The book challenges kids to hunt out objects and solve problems within the illustration, so I had to draw everything in a way that certain elements were intentionally hard to find. I had a lot of fun with this, because I had a lot of freedom to design the characters and draw them in my style.
