The News Junkie

Description:

T-Shirt illustration of a giant woman attacking a bunch of army guys in this parody t-shirt for The News Junkie website.

The design was set up with special sun-activated color-changing ink, so that the colors only appear when out doors.  Really cool effect.  I gave this a halftone retro coloring treatment to try to emulate classic horror/fantasy magazines.

This was a steampunk character design concept I worked on for Bogard Press – used in their educational book series and other marketing materials. I'd really love to get stronger with character design and pursue that direction some more.#art #illustration #steampunk #characterdesign #freelance #FlylandDesigns New Artwork From Instagram

Thomas Good

Description:

A fantasy author hired me to create this book cover illustration of his characters for his youth fantasy series of the Green Knight.

I love the challenge of designing characters from just a brief outline of a story.  The client asked me to create this in a softer pencil and digital painting style which is pretty different from my line-art driven style.  Real happy with how this turned out.

I was hired last year to create some character concept art for a revamp of Scholastic's math game for kids called Sushi Monster – unfortunately, due to a gypsy curse on my family, the whole project was cancelled before we could really get into it because the art director left the company. But it was a great experience while it lasted.#art #illustration #characterdesign #app #game #monster #creature #freelance #FlylandDesigns New Artwork From Instagram

Description:

Van’s General Store in NYC hired me to create this insane illustration of a crazy tattooed shark riding a bike through the city.

This was designed for a set of jackets as promotional gifts for the employees – the illustration is packed with symbols that represent different aspects of all their personalities.  No need to explain, it wouldn’t help!  Had a lot of fun with this.

My brother Keith is a super-talented pop-up engineer working at American Greetings – he's created this incredible pop-up book completely by himself by waking up at 5AM every morning before the rest of the fam gets up. He's launching the book via Kickstarter (WHICH STARTS TODAY!), and it would really mean a lot to me if you guys checked out his work. So inspiring!

I created this poster illustration of a motorcycle on the beach for the Wasaga Beach Rally in 2016.

Never been to the beach, but it looks amazing – it’s part of the longest fresh water beach in the world, located in Ontario Canada.  The rally is one of the biggest around apparently – it was a thrill to be hired to do the t-shirt.
