Here's an illustration of Odin's Raven that I created recently – tried to do something creative with the lighting. Any suggestions? Thinking this would look cool on a shirt. #odin #ravenart #art #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #tshirtdesign #freelance #hire

Vinyl wrapped zombie helmet I illustrated for Blaze Artworks’ new line of monster themed motorcycle helmets.
It was a fun challenge to try to figure out how to illustrate something in two dimensions that would ultimately wrap around a spherical 3D object. The client was kind enough to send me a helmet that I was able to physically trace and photograph to create a template, using some tricks I learned at my first professional art job at XGX Racing more than a decade ago. Thrilled with how this turned out!

Hulk Hogan Beach Graphics

 

Client:

Hogan’s Beach Shop

Description:

Super humbling to be able to work for one of my childhood heroes, Hulk Hogan.He owns a beach shop down in Florida, and liked my colorful beach graphics.We created a few designs for his shop that involves their Shark mascot punking the Hulkster in different ways.Very easy guy to work with, and tons of fun, BROTHER!

Monk Vaping Label


 

Client:

Fumeine

Description:

Pleasure to work with this vaping company in the UK, to design their new labels for a line of vaping ejuice.I thought it would be cool to create this slightly creepy monk character – graphics were set up to fit both wide and tall labels, leaving room for a gazillion disclaimers and warning text that is required in that area.

Seed cultivator Hammerhead Genetics hired me recently to design a new logo and mascot for their marijuana seed growing business.
We experimented with a few different looks and poses for the shark, and landed on this happier fella you see here.

Merry Christmas to my friends, family, clients, and even my bitter enemies! This was something I drew with the new iPad Pro 12.9 using the new Clip Studio Paint app. At first I wasn't a big fan of it, but I'm starting to come around. Trying to decide if I should keep this or the Wacom Mobile Studio pro, got another week to tinker.

I illustrated the marketing poster and t-shirt for this 50’s inspired diner called Anne’s Family Diner, owned and operated by a husband and wife team whose likenesses are illustrated here.
They were a pleasure to work with, and were really happy with how it turned out.

New line of e-juice from Adrenaline Vapors that I illustrated the labels for, featuring a has-been 80’s headbanger screaming into his microphone and dropping his gut.
When we were finished, I provided the labels in a variety of different colors to be used for each flavor in the line.

Cheech and Chong Speed Inks

Silk-screen t-shirt illustration I created in tribute to the legendary Cheech and Chong from Up In Smoke with the characters as weed-eating, brain-smoking zombies.
I drew this artwork in Clip Studio Paint (Manga Studio 5) with a Wacom Cintiq. This is inspired by an illustration I created years ago – I wanted to test out my new skills, and design something that was more fitting for a t-shirt and filled out the front more (the previous design was too square). I also wasn’t happy with the likeness of the characters in the first design, so I drew everything from the ground up, and added a lot of elements from the films and really tried to do my best to capture the spirit of these marijuana legends.

Zombie Toy Concept Art

Just got these vinyl zombie toys I designed!
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 a reference. Pretty effective little trick!

iPad Pro 10.5 Review for Artist: Why I Am Returning It

Hey guys, a few months ago I got the iPad Pro 10.5 and tried it out. But it wasn’t for me, so I returned it. I thought it would be cool to make a review of it and let you all know why it didn’t work for me.

Just got this bundle of awesome artwork from the great Dayne Henry Jr. I've always been a huge fan of his artwork, and he's been a really nice and helpful guy to me. Happy to support other artists when I can! Grab his book! #art #daynehenryjr

#Album cover called “Turn People Into Food” I illustrated for the #heavymetal #band #CrustyOldToad featuring the first giant toad monk holding a plate of body parts that I’ve ever drawn!The band and I didn’t take the art too seriously – we wanted something dark but still funny and absurd. I had more fun drawing the uppity aristocrat characters puking their guts out than anything else I think. Check out their music:https://crustyoldtoad.bandcamp.com/
