Which of my art styles do you think is better? I often switch between a line-art driven comic book style, and a digital painting style depending on the project. The line-art style is more familiar to me, and I think it's easier to convey a strong identifiable style in the artwork. But the digital painting style can come across as more realistic, and is often what clients in the darker genre are looking for.Which of these is a stronger piece? Thanks for your help!#digitalpainting #art #zombie #trooper #outlaw

T-Shirt illustration of a parrot and tiki heads marijuana themed

4’20 Somewhere Parrot t-shirt

Client:

Bongjour

Description:

I illustrated this t-shirt design for Bongjour in conjunction with the popular Chief Greenbud to celebrate his song “It’s 4:20 Somewhere,” a parody of Jimmy Buffet’s tune.  The design was printed as full-color direct to garment.  For this design, I tried a new technique:  instead of inking the design, I just scanned in my pencil drawing (which was done on paper) and colored the piece underneath the pencils.  I’m pretty happy with the result – it gives it a more realistic, and vibrant, and softer feel.

Illustration of comic book style hip-hop artists fighting a horde of zombies

Bukshot Album Cover

Client:

Bukshot

Description:

I illustrated this promotional poster and album cover for the hip-hop artist Bukshot who partnered with Violent J from The Insane Clown Posse, Madchild, and JellyRoll.  The album was a special edition, and released in a DVD sized package, which allowed me to create a cool portrait orientation, instead of having to squeeze everything into a tiny square.  Bukshot wanted the four artists illustrated as comic book characters, fighting a horde of zombies.  I enjoyed this so much!

Inking a variation on a zombie outlaw I had done previously for a Motorcycle Club – this time I'm attempting a more line-art driven illustration rather than a digital painting, because the design will also be embroidered on their jackets.#motorcycle #club #zombie #trooper #outlaw

Angry rottweiler chewing on a piston for racing t-shirt

Angry Rottweiler Racing T-Shirt Design

Client:

Commando Racing Gear

Description:

Digitally painted illustration of an angry Rottweiler taking a bite out of a big Piston for the racing brand Commando Racing Gear.  This was a fun challenge to work on, because drawing realistic dogs, especially specific breeds, can be very tricky to get just right.  I’m pretty happy with the result.  This design will be separated to print with simulated process silk-screening and sold at drag racing shows and shops.
