Hot Rod Power Tour

Description:

Custom T-Shirt illustration I created for the Hot Rod Power Tour in the Southwest I was hired to design.

I haven’t had a lot of opportunities to illustrated cars, so this was a particular challenge.  But I hope I pulled it off accurately.  If not, I made sure to cover it up with plenty of flames to distract, and threw a steer skull in their for good measure.

Here's an ink drawing of my favorite character from one the coolest animated movies of all time, Wizards, named Peace.

Description:

Listenable Records hired me to illustrated this Black Sabbath tribute album cover of their red winged demon.

I tried to pump as much of my style into it, while still keeping the pose close enough that fans of the early Black Sabbath material would get it.  We put some headphones on the demon for fun.  Always a pleasure working with these guys!
