Here was the Pencil sketch I created on the iPad Pro in Clip Studio Paint of Spawn in a collaboration with the artist @Chogrin . The screen is so bright I can work outside in my backyard – it's great to take a break from the big screen every once in a while and stare at a little screen instead.#art #originalartwork #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #spawn #toddmcfarlane #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #ipadpro

Todd McFarlane's Spawn was such a huge influence on my art style as a kid. So I was really thrilled to be asked by the artist @Chogrin to be a part of a book presented to Todd McFarlane himself to commemorate 25 years of the Hellspawn! This was the first piece of artwork that I created completely on the iPad Pro, every step. I think I could have done better on the Wacom, there are some parts I'm not happy with. But overall, I really enjoyed working on the tablet and being out on my back porch while working.#art #spawn #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #spawnfanart #ipadpro #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #toddmcfarlane

I found this great resource for learning digital painting, and all the videos are free. I work so much in a line-art driven comic book style, that I've been trying to branch out into Digital painting. Any other good classes I should look at? https://www.ctrlpaint.com/#digitalpainting #arttips #tutorials #artresources #artschool #arthelp #arttools

The drawing event I started with Jeremy Bratton and Melissa Hombrosky called Drink and Draw was featured in our local paper! You know it's a fun event when the writer and photographer picked up pencils and paper and started drawing when they were finished. So happy that people are enjoying this and responding so positively to it. Special thanks to the #CentreDailyTimes #drinkanddraw #drinkanddrawsc #artistsunite

It's always so humbling to see total strangers with my artwork tattooed on their flesh! @artist_dennis_lehmann Dennis Lehmann did an incredible job recreating my tiki guy mascot. I also really appreciate when tattoo artists like this ask my permission first – so many do. I'm planning on designing something similar for myself.#tikiart #tikitattoo #tatoo #tiki

Angry Mahi-Mahi Fish T-Shirt Design


Client:

Great Lakes

Description:

Stylized angry mutant Mahi-Mahi fish I created for an apparel graphics company leaping from the water.

This was the first time I explored drawing fish in a more crazy creepy style, rather than realistic, and I love it.

Robot Zombie Disc Golf Design


Client:

Discraft

Description:

Another fun design I created for the leaders of disc golf equipment, Discraft, of a crazed zombie cyborg, because cyborg’s are zombies, too!

We designed a full-color version, as well as a single color foil option. The discs have become collectors editions, and I’m always thrilled when Discraft sends me a box of the discs with my artwork on them. Really cool to see the art come to life!

 

Just had these pop-up banners made, and I'm so happy with how they turned out. I'm finally going to get away from my desk and start attending conventions – I've got a few at the end of the year – a mix of comic conventions, horror conventions, and a cannabis convention in Las Vegas I'll be attending. Nervous and excited to see how that all goes. Anyone have a reccommendation for conventions near Pennsylvania?#conventionartist #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #tshirtdesign #tshirtart #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq

Crimshaw Metal Band Monsters Album Cover


Client:

Crimshaw Band

Description:

The heavy metal band Crimshaw commissioned me to illustrate each member of the band as classic movie monsters based on their personalities for their new album.

It’s always such a fun challenge to draw the likenesses of people I’ve never met, just based on a few photographs. Luckily, turning them into savage creatures masks any errors.

Pandora’s Box Logo Design


Client:

Pandora’s Unboxing

Description:

I created this custom YouTube banner of the mythical Pandora’s box for a political channel out of the UK, discussing potential economic and political disasters (fun!).

The client wanted something really dark and mysterious, and hand-illustrated, to differentiate himself from similar channels.

Pacman late for work. I've been drawing a lot more in my sketchbook lately, partly because of the local Drink and Draw I helped organize. I love it! Makes me feel kind of silly for buying a $1000 digital sketchbook (talking about you, iPad Pro). #pacman #art #originalartwork #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #tshirtdesign #tshirtart #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #pentelbrushpen

Magical Fantasy Imaginative Children’s Book Illustrations


Client:

Darius Walker

Description:

Fantasy children’s book I illustrated for author Darius Walker about a family that rides a magical pirate ship bed into a strange world.

This was probably my favorite children’s book to date, because it’s strange and surreal tone really lended itself perfectly to my quirky illustration style. It’s not often that I can illustrate monsters, robots, and pirates in the same book!

I drew up this friendly creature for my protmotional mailers and sticker packs. Printed them out on some nice parchment-style envelopes I grabbed in my laser printer. Turned out great! the original envelope drawn with a @Pentelbrushpen ! #creatureart #promotionalart #evnelopeart #illustration #art #instaart #instaartist #hire

Team Spirit Wrestling Singlet Apparel Design


Client:

Blue Chip Athletics

Description:

Blue Chip Athletics hired me to create this customize-able wrestling singlet apparel template they could offer to their different teams. I set up the design so that the team colors were easily modifiable and could be printed in limited color silk-screen to save cost. They were really thrilled with the result.

I think I forgot to share this: My artwork was featured in a recent issue of CARtoons! @cartoonsmagazine Such a humbling experience, because I've been inspired by the artists in that mag for years and years. #carart #magazinecoverart #hotrodart
