I'm so thrilled to announce that I won a Gold award at the Central Pennsylvania Creative Professionals Bracket Awards this weekend! The award was for my recent illustration work with Chick-Fil-A and McCann of New York. The talent submitted to the awards was all inspiring, top-level stuff. I'm so honored to be recognized, and thankful to the CP squared staff for all they do. Enormous thank you's all around! #flylanddesigns #cp2 #bracketawards #chickfila #rivalrestaurant #illustrationawards #auburntigers #georgiabulldogsfootball #hire

I was hired by a fabric pot manufacturer called @grassrootsfabricpots for growing plants to create a t-shirt for their conventions featuring this hipster #bear #characterdesign we came up with, holding one of their fabric pots. They wanted something that displayed their product in a way that people would want to wear, even if they weren’t familiar with the product. This was printed with direct-to-garment full-color printing. They were kind enough to send me a shirt, and it turned out great! #tshirtdesign #mangastudio #illustration #art #instaart #instaartist

Wacom Cintiq Pro 24″ Review

The new Wacom Cintiq Pro 24″ (non-touch) is the perfect tablet for digital artists. About the Cintiq Pro I have been using the Wacom Cintiq Pro 24″ extensively since early April 2018, and I absolutely love it.

So flattered and humbled to announce that my artwork made the cover of #Gnarlymagazine, a magazine FILLED with tons of amazingly talented artists (and now me!). They even devoted three spreads to my artwork and interviewed me! I work constantly at this, and sometimes it can be a bit of a frantic frenzy. It's really humbling to have something like this happen from time to time to let me know I must be on the right track! Special thanks to @JohnnyVonGriz for making this happen!#gnarlymag #artmagazine #hotrodart #streetart #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #freelance #hire @gnarlymagazine_88mph

Happy 420! Here's the finished Cannabis – Psychedelic exploration image I did for my personal portfolio. Remember that you are one of your most important clients! Make time for your own exploration. Really happy with how this artwork came together – I made a couple signed prints of it – link to my shop in bio. I inked the piece on the iPad Pro 12.9, and then colored it in Clip Studio Paint with my new best friend, the Wacom Cintiq Pro (review coming soon). #420art #420artist #mangastudio #ipadproart #clipstudiopaint #wacompro #skullart #psychedelicart #hire

Custom #vector #mascot #Rhino I created for #RedEyeRhino, the competition dart brand for use marketing their products and apparel.The client approached me with an outdated Rhino mascot that they wanted pumped up – so we came up with this guy, wearing one of their signature jerseys and clutching a handful of darts. Angry mascots are kind of my thing.Illustrated by Brian Allen, http://flylanddesigns.com/#character #mangastudio #photoshop #illustration #art #instaart #instaartist
