Built a lightbox for my Monster Bash alternative backglass to bring to Pinfest 2019 this weekend. Now officially licensed from Williams!The box is pretty crappy looking – I’m better with a pencil than a hammer. But the LED lights inside are perfect. Probably going to burn my house down.We have about 50 backglasses left PM me if interested. Limited to only 125 ever.#pinfest2019 #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass
West Coast Pitbull
West Coast Pitbull, a huge brand that caters to all things pitbull, hired me to create a series of apparel designs featuring the Pitbull in all his badass glory.
Our second design had me drawing a pitbull skull in a decorative Ace of Spades card design. I decided to add a lot of detail to the skull, but push the other design elements into the background to help it pop out.
The next West Coast Pitbull t-shirt design I created imagines a dark future where humanity’s only hope for survival rests in the paws of cybernetically enhanced Pitbulls designed to hunt out their enemies. I drew this pitbull on a pile of skulls because it just felt right.
I illustrated this crazy and horrifying clown for West Coast Pitbull’s new apparel series. This was a digital painting created in Adobe Photoshop – I decided to leave out all the line art in the design and try to go for a more realistic look.
Poster I designed for PinFest this weekend in Allentown PA. My first time at this show, can’t wait! There’s going to be something like 250 pinball machines to play! We were running short on time, so I modified some artwork I had designed previously…..#pinfest2019 #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass
The New York band, The Unbroken hired me to create this insanely detailed illustration of crusaders clashing with a horde of demon soldiers, parting in the middle to show our Unbroken hero in the middle of the fray.
I love working on projects like this where I can just put my headphones on and get absorbed in all the details of each creature and soldier. It’s a challenge to keep it from becoming a tangled mess. I tried to keep all the colors limited so that the focus would rest on the solitary warrior in the middle.
I also update the band’s logo to match the illustration.
Absolutely amazing! The guys love it!

Take A Break
Bass fishing illustrations I created for Take A Break clothing. We wanted to take a sort of harder, more stylized and graphic edge to these designs, in contrast to the hyper-realistic renderings out there. These were separated for silk-screen by the client – I took care to use only a limited number of colors in the design to make that easier. I have a couple in my closet – they turned out great.
Artwork for Discraft I’m working on for a series of disc golf discs – really excited about this one. Coloring it today. Was thinking about calling it The Dance. Any suggestions? I’m terrible at naming things (ask my kids).#grimreaper #discgolf #frisbeegolf #discraftdiscs #teamdiscraft #detroitdisccompany #disc

Paintball GOTCHA Spielfield
The artist Chogrin invited me to participate in a Spawn tribute book to celebrate the 25th anniversary, that would be presented to Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane.
I create the entire artwork on the iPad Pro in Clip Studio Paint. 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.
Packing up everything for the festival this weekend, here’s some of the stuff I’ll be peddling. Also in my shop.

Going to be using them for all my prints from now [email protected] #legalizePA #electriccity #penncannafest#cannabisart #marijuanaartist #cannabiscommunity#psychedelicart #meditation #trippyart #cannabisart #mushroomart #marijuanaartist #cannabiscommunity
Finished Game of Thrones poster I did for BamBox, officially licensed. I thought it would be fun to focus on the dicotomy of the fire and ice dragons. I haven’t watched any of the new season yet, I’m binging all the previous episodes first. Makes a lot more sense on the second watch!Limited edition signed prints available in my shop.#bambox #gameofthronesart #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #wacomcintiq
Shrunken Headz Hot Sauce
Shrunken Headz Hot Sauce hired me to illustrate the logo for their company, two labels, and even design a 3D plastic topper for all their bottles.
The first design was an evil demon clown with a grungy circus background, and the second was a creepy scarecrow with an apple for a head instead of a pumpkin. For the logo, I created this fun and creepy shrunken head with flames shooting out its ears. They liked the logo so much that they hired me to illustrate a turnaround illustration of the head so a 3D modeler could create a plastic capper for the bottles.
Holy ***! That looks so wicked! Thanx Brian. Another masterpiece to add to your collection!
Owner, Shrunken Headz Hot Sauce
Finished poster design for the PA Cannabis Festival in Scranton PA this weekend. This was a really different piece for me – tried to stick to a limited color pallete and muted colors. The festival should have over 10k people attending – can’t [email protected] #legalizePA #electriccity #penncannafest#cannabisart #marijuanaartist #cannabiscommunity
Poster design for the Pennsylvania Cannabis Festival I created. Here are the inks, drawn in Clip Studio Paint with a Wacom Cintiq – ready for color. Scranton has a rich history in mining and power generation, so we thought it would be cool to draw a Cannabis Miner, holding a lantern transformed into a bong.I’ll be at the convention this weekend, anyone planning on [email protected] #legalizePA #electriccity #penncannafest#cannabisart #marijuanaartist #cannabiscommunity

Special thanks to Hire an Illustrator for putting together the Jules Verne Expo in London and inviting me to submit my work. Wish I could have been there, but a little far for me. Pleasure showing my work among so many talented artists! #julesverneexpo #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq
This brand of coconut milk called Naughty Coconut hired me to illustrate and design the labels for each of their many flavors, featuring this sexy coconut lady between two palm trees.
The bottle was very small, so had to come up with a design that would be legible at only 2 inches tall.A
Tribute poster I created for the Jules Verne gallery show in London going on right now. I picked Journey to the Center of the Earth because Dinosaurs and giant mushrooms. Thanks to my friends at Hire and Illustrator for putting this show together. Turned out to be one of my favorite pieces. I’ve got signed prints available if you want to grab one!#julesverneexpo #posterillustration #wacomcintiq #psychedelicart https://www.flylanddesigns.com/shop/
A private collector commissioned me to paint this one-of-a-kind tiki totem skateboard deck in acrylic on wood.
I designed the different tiki heads digitally in Clip Studio Paint, and then transferred the sketch to the board using carbon paper. Using acrylics, I blocked in the colors and began adding highlights and shadows. Then, when all the colors were added (which was the most time consuming part of the process), I painted the line work with a brush and black ink. The client was so much fun to work with – he wanted the entire thing to be a surprise, so he never saw any sketches or progress shots. I don’t do a lot of traditional painting, so I was unsure how it would turn out, but I’m very happy with it.
T-shirt design and poster I was hired to create for the popular band, the Moonshine Bandits, of a skeleton eagle holding two smoking pistols. Set up for silk-screening with under six colors.
Badass! Love it all.
Journey to the Center of the Earth art print I created for the Jules Verne Expo gallery this weekend in London – Inks drawn in Clip Studio Paint with a wacom tablet – I colored this with a really trippy color pallete. Really challenging piece for me, very happy with how it all came together.#Julesverneexpo #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq

Officially licensed Game of Thrones poster I worked on last year – so pumped for the final season. I’ve been trying to rewatch the previous episodes – wish there was some kind of abridged version. More to come – really happy with how this turned out…..#gameofthronesart #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq
Illustrations and packaging design we created for The Pixels, an eJuice line inspired by classic games like Mario, Pac-Man, Minecraft, Tomb Raider, and more.
The client asked me to create parody mash-up illustrations of some of the most iconic video game characters mixed with elements from the eJuice flavors, for a line of Vaping products. I also designed the text, and the background of the packaging. Once we were finished, I also designed the logo and mascot character for the Pixels, which is a mad scientist, mixing together pixels.
Breaking Bad pinball playfield I designed to retheme an old Judge Dredd machine for Tim Fife – he’;s building his own awesome Breaking Bad machine with art from a lot of talented folks. The white areas are all translucent with lights underneath, or cut outs for objects. It’;s going to be so sweet.#breakingbadart #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass
Iron Horse Mud Ranch
I was hired to create this detailed map for Iron Horse Mud Ranch, known as one of the best off-road parks in the country.
Located in Perry, Florida, this sprawling estate hosts monster trucks, ATVs, and just about anything with wheels on an insane course of obstacles, tracks, and millions of gallons of mud.
The client submitted aerial and onsite photos that I pieced together into a blueprint for the map. Once we had the locations of everything fixed, I laid out all the elements and hand-illustrated all the cars, trucks, booths, tents, and other elements in Adobe Illustrator as a vector graphic. The map will be used as a printed brochure for guests, on their website, and on a 9 foot tall banner to display at the park.
It looks SUPER GOOD! I really appreciate it.

Here are some detail shots of the finished Breaking Bad pinball playfield I created for a private collector – so hard to crop this massive thing into little social media squares. This thing was a massive undertaking – so cool to interpret the characters from my favorite show.#breakingbadart #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass
I illustrated this zombie gangster character for the popular football glove company, Loudmouth.
The gloves are designed to wrap across both gloves, so they show the full illustration when the hands are placed on top of one another. The client was extremely fun to work with, and I can’t wait to get my pair.
Some line-art close-ups of the Breaking Bad pinball playfield retheme I worked on for Tim Fife. Easily one of my favorite shows of all time – it was fun rewatching the show as I worked on this – so many details you miss on the first watch-through.#breakingbadart #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass
