American bald eagle illustration I created earlier in the year accessorized with US flag wings!

That would have been embarassing.#patrioticart #usflag #patriotic #americaneagle #merica#art #originalartwork #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq

Sexy Girl with Gun Logo

Client:

Technical Tactical

Description:

Logo design I created for the online gun and armor shop, Technical Tactical, featuring their new mascot, this lovely lady holding a giant rifle.

No subtlety necessary! I love jobs like this every once and awhile, where you don’t have to think too much. We knew going in we just needed a badass character, attractive, and deadly, drawn in a colorful and bold style to represent the brand.

Client Testimonial:

It looks great! I really love it

-Roger Bartling

Technical Tactical, owner

Moonshine Bandits T-Shirt

Client:

Moonshine Bandits

Description:

T-shirt design and poster I was hired to create for the popular band, the Moonshine Bandits, where I was asked to draw the band members as skeletons driving their iconic off-road limo.

We chose to take a Big Daddy Roth approach, and make the characters larger than life so we could really focus on the small characteristics (such as the tattoos, hair-styles, etc) that make them identifiable. Set up for silk-screening with under six colors.

Client Testimonial:

Love! Thanks and look forward to working together again.

Each year, I like to create a new St. Patrick's Day design for Fire Fighters. I came up with a really great idea, but decided it would be more fun to just draw a leprechaun with a skull face instead.#stpatricksday #leprechaun #firefighterlife #challengecoin #patchdesign #firefighterpatch #emslife

All finished with this tiki skateboard painting I did for a private collector. First time I've done something like this, so there were a lot of stumbles along the way, but I had a great time with it. The collector wanted the whole thing to be a surprise, so he never even saw a sketch. The first time he saw the deck design was when he opened the package on his front door! That really added a lot to the whole experience.#skateboardart #deckart #skaterart #deckdesign #skateboarding#tikiart #tikibar #beachart #tikitotem #surfart #tikiartist #beach

Tiki Character Paddle Boarding Logo

Client:

Michael Jordan

Description:

I was hired to create this logo for the outdoor sports outfitter, H20 Sports Zone, of a tiki chief riding a paddle board on the ocean.

I love working with tiki characters and making them do fun things – paddle-boarding has become hugely popular, so it was fun to draw him doing that. The logo was created both in color and black and white so that it would be useable in many different applications.

Client Testimonial:

Oh Wow, it looks sick. Thank you!

Owner, H2O Sports Zone

Box Busters Dog Character Logo

Client:

Mic Sully

Description:

This big green dog character ripping through a box I drew is for a logo design for the distribution service, Box Busters.

The client wanted something over-the-top and in-your-face to appeal to his customer base, who are anything but subtle. I drew a caricature of his pet. The business is cannabis themed, but we had to find creative ways to not exploit that theme too much.

Client Testimonial:

Wow…. phenomenal….I’m stoked

Blocking in colors on this custom skateboard deck painting I was working on. I used some left-over black light paint for the eyes to really make them glow. You can't see it in the photo, but I used some metallic gold paint I had for the teeth, and cut it with white, so they have a really cool subtle sheen to them.#skateboardart #deckart #skaterart #deckdesign #skateboarding#tikiart #tikibar #beachart #tikitotem #surfart #tikiartist #beach

Gross and disgusting restaurant

A La Carte Album Cover

Client:

A La Carte

Description:

Album cover design I created for the band A La Carte showing a disgusting restaurant with eyeballs, fingers, brains, rats, and even a toilet.

The band wanted me to create an album cover with a lot of gross details, as if a fine restaurant was being run by a deranged cannibal. The illustration covers the front and back cover. I also had the privilege to design the band’s logo as well, which was made to look like a goopy, drippy mess.

Client Testimonial:

We couldn’t be happier with the atmosphere you captured on this piece.

-Mark Hauenstein

A La Carte, Band Member

Very excited to share this really unique project. Custom skateboard deck I will be painting on with acrylic for a private collector. He gave me completely free reign, which happens very rarely. I sketched this design in Clip Studio Paint, printed it out, and transferred it to the board with carbon paper.

Light the Lamp T-shirt Design

Client:

Circle City Foundation

Description:

I was commissioned to design this t-shirt for the Circle City Foundation’s Light the Lamp Against Cancer event which depicts a hockey fan in a hot Indiana summer daydreaming about playing hockey in the wintertime.

It was a pleasure to work with an organization that does so many great things in their fight against cancer. I had a lot of fun putting a little spin on my beach graphics, by illustrating a lake beach in the mountains. This design was set up for full-color, so I could really go nuts.

Client Testimonial:

Fantastic!  I’m really happy with how this has turned out. You really captured what I was going for!

Silk-screen illustration I created of a rattle snake clutching a rifle for a t-shirt design that should be available at Cabella's sometime soon – Snakes are so challenging to draw.

Screaming Eagle Album Cover

Client:

Listenable Records

Description:

This illustration I created for Listenable Records Hellfest album cover is a tribute to the iconic Judas Priest album cover of a mechanical eagle swooping down from the sky.

It was hard to improve on such a masterpiece, so I just tried to reinvent the eagle in my own style, with a little more modern technology.

Camel Toz T-shirt Designs

Client:

Kip Bogdan

Description:

This was a really fun series of apparel designs I illustrated for new outdoor lifestyle brand called Camel Toes, featuring an athletic camel mascot interacting with his female fans in different sports and fitness situations.

We tried to squeeze in as much activity, detail, and characters into each design that we could. The mascot himself was carefully designed in a way that made it easy to draw him doing all sorts of different activities. I also designed the logo and text style for the brand.
